Grams of fat for bulking?

  1. Grams of fat for bulking?


    I read that 25-35% of your diet should be comprised of fats. Does this apply to a bulking stage?


  2. If I'm high carb on a bulk I keep fat around 10-15 percent of my calories, or I'll get fat.

    How many calories are you bulking at? Current weight? Target weight?

    Last season I was at about 4200 by the end. 300g carbs and protein. Ended the bulk a slightly chubby 230. Because I left fats higher being on a 20 week bulk.
    This season I have to start a little lower, took time off for construction and an injury.

  6. Just make it simple

    2g/lb in protein per day. Yes, you don't "need" this much but if you get this in from red meat, you're going to get most of your micronutrients
    The rest of your calories come from carbohydrate

    If you do this you don't need to worry about macros or anything else.

  7. I agree with @Ase_james - I tend to keep my fats lower during a bulk to stay leaner. I usually consumer 15% from fats, and never more than 20%. If I eat high fat with extra carbs I get fluffy

    High fat with high carbs is a recipe for diabetes

    Assuming 400 grams solely by eating red meat is not doable for everyone, does beef whey protein contribute to this goal in similar way?

    Consuming all of your protein in red meat is not required - it's @AlexPowell 's personal opinion/recommendation.

    There are other great (and less expensive) sources of protein to consume - chicken, eggs, whey, and greek yogurt. All of these are solid sources and will contribute to your macro targets in the same way that red meat will

  11. The point of eating that much is not really for the "protein" it's to make your diet simple. That way you don't need to worry about your macros or how much you're consuming

  12. We cannot really say what is ideal for bulking or for you.A good rule of thumb is at least 20% of calories should come from fats to help maintain proper hormone function.

    However, this can be dependent for each person. Some people can keep fats lower (20%) and carbs high, to aid with performance. Some people can maintain proper training intensity and muscle fullness on lower carbs and higher fats. You need to experiment and see how these different approaches affect you. Here is a good article on this.
