I am 24 yrs old, 186lbs, 5'10", 17% bf. This question goes out to all the other hard gainers out there. I am a hard gainer. My metabolism is still very fast. I snowboard, skateboard, and workout. I have a pretty active lifestyle. I have been trying to get up closer to 200lbs. I had some assistance to get from 153lbs to my current weight. I have been eating a lot of food, but my body fat has gone up a lot. I want the weight but not the bf %. I know I shouldnt eat red meat as often as I do (2-3 times a week), but it seems to work. I live in FL on the gulf of mexico so seafood is a plenty. Does anyone have any recomendations for a newbie trying to clean his bulking diet up?
Here is a quick break down of stuff I usually eat:
Morning - 6 egg whts with 1 slice of low fat cheese and olive oil. Some wheat toast. I usually drink a large glass of 2% milk.
Chicken sandwiches on wheat with cheese, lettuce, tomato. I try to eat fruit with lunch but I tend to grab a protein bar here and there.
Steak 10 - 12 oz with potatos, more milk, low fat mac and cheese. Usually some bread (garlic or regular).
Snacks through out the day
Granola bars and gatorade and the occasionally piece of fruit.
I also take in about 100g of protein from shakes.
I havent really kept track of the actually calorie intake, but it definately feels like a lot.
Thanks for helping me out guys/gals
