    Help me BULK UP!


    I'm 23 yrs old, 5'10" and 170 lbs. I'm trying to gain weight for a competition in a couple months and then when it gets closer, start to cut. I need about 4800 cals a day to maintain or gain 1 lb a week. What can I eat other then lean meats, brown rice, oatmeal. to help me reach my 4800 calorie intake. Thanks!!!

    Haha yeah the 4800 is after I added the 500. I know I need to just eat and eat and eat. I just gotta keep it healthy and no nasty fatty foods like fast food. But thanks! all of the input will help!

    Yup. Its very subjective

    For me healthy = bacon, white rice, pork shoulder, bacon grease, all sorts of beef cuts, red + sweet potatoes, lots and lots of coconut oil

    For me a healthy meal is salmon fried in left over bacon grease with a side of white rice and 2 cups of green veggies.

    Unhealthy food = brown rice, whole wheat pasta, bread, trans fat, peanut butter, beans, etc.

    Unhealthy food = anything unsavory or high in trans fat (worse if both).

    Natty PB.....it's so simple, 1 serving is 200 calories or just less.....do 1 serving with each of your meals, lets say 5 meals thats an extra 2000calories

    and it's not heavy so it won't really fill you up, so if ur stuffed from ur meal already this won't make it much worse

    I thought 5 x 200 = 1000 ...Clearly I am lacking math skills that are on parallel to yours!
