We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act, but a habit.
If you think it would work I could try it, I think 100g fat would maybe be better, so I can get 200g proetin and 400g carbs
I got weighed again today (as I do every 2 weeks), since the last time I have gained 0.3kg (0.66 pounds) which brings me upto 61.1kg or 135 pounds- bearing in mind I lost weight the last 2 time I was weighed(0.4kg 4 weeks ago and 0.3kg 2 weeks ago) I'm quite pleased.
My strength has plateaued over the last 2 weeks and hasn't changed but my nutrionist has said that is normal and I will start getting strongger again soon- I'm lifting more than double than I was 4 months ago (some cases almost treble) so I suppose a plateau was inevitable.
Heres some progress pictures, I'm not sure if you can see it clearly but my chest is very vascular- I counted at least 9 verins on it but the photo isn't clear- my chest is definately getting bigger which is great because it makes my weird disfigured rib cage look less prominnent (my bottom ribs stick out very far and top go in)
Phot update- only gained 1 pound but much stronger in all lifts
keep it up big dog
Thanks, will do!
I find that 450-500g carbs, 220 protein and 70g fats with 3300 or 3400(leg days) calories.
70g fats seems low but that seems where my optimum growth is plus my energy and mood are better with very high carb figures.
I'm dependant on carbs. I think most true hard gainers are, or should be.
I feel my best, train my best, and build muscle the fastest with high carbs. More so than high protein.
Eating fat wont make you fat and considering your diet, you fall into this misconception that it does.
Heres some photos with my legs- these have been where I've seen the biggest improvement- I am very out of proportion- my legs are way bigger than everything else but thats not a problem
Cool Guy, PM me. I'd like to discuss some dietary and training tips with you.
You all realize he's being consulted by an RD and a therapist, right? I think they've probably got his nutrition/training and coping skills covered
