    this is true, if you eat clean and eat predominately high protein sources (with higher fat or w/o)....those protein #'s rack up really quick and you don't get so bloated as when you eat higher carb, processed crappier food which bloats you and makes you feel lousy and takes away your appetite and desire to eat. But its hard to do on a regular basis

    alot of people don't see the point of eating ultra clean on a bulk.......cleaner calories tend to be more filling and less calorie dense....a recipe to make it hard to get in enough cals.

    but if you can do it, you're awesome!

    I honestly think I can pull this off easily on a daily basis... if I run out of time, I can make an extra shake or two to get me over the top of my calorie/protein goals without any processed sugar, white flour or saturated fat

    the point i was making is that its harder to put on muscle than to lose fat.

    You can do it. I've been pulling it off (3800-4200cals/350g+ protein) on a daily basis for almost a year now. It's all about food prep and having planned meals. Lots of chicken, oats, and veggies.

    Food prep is key.... my fridge looks a lot like a restaurant walk in.... precooked chicken, boiled eggs, cooked veggies etc etc.... all I have to do is mix it together and throw in what seasonings I want.....

    i also think its important to note that 350g of protein isn't needed to build muscle. for muscle building there's no evidence one needs more than 2g/kg of protein per day. so , for someone 240lbs, anything above 220-240g is just being used as glucose anyway.

    however, for muscle sparing, appetite suppression and thermal effect, that much protein is best used while trying to cut. even then, its not needed.

    it's just common sense, theres only about 140g of protein in a POUND of muscle mass.. why would you need 350gX7 ( in one week) = 2500g of protein per week to build 1 pound of muscle? and no one builds a pound of muscle a week consistently unless they are on androgens or are new to lifting.

    thats quite a transformation! anyone, myself included, tends to be wary of falling back into a position that one has worked so hard to get out of. so, i can understand you're reasoning for eating clean.

    It's not something I shoot for. It can be hard to keep the protein lower when taking in that many calories.

    Rather have too much than not enough,,, with all the cardio I do it helps prevent catabolism and with all the distilled water I drink my kidneys are doing fine

    interesting.

    i have different supps that i alternate depending on goals and different cycling periods since some are counter productive to each other

    vitamin D
    gamma e tocotrienols ( all 8 parts of vitamin E aka tocomin)
    green tea extract alternated with pomegranate PE

    NAC
    red wine extract
    cissus
    spirulina powder
    magnesium
    leucine powder during workouts
    tons of coffee

    cissus
    yellow gold ( berberine)
    ursolic acid
    tyrosine
    vitamin C
    fish oil
    alpha yohimbine

    i'm getting used to taking less and less supps. i feel as though it makes me more lax in my nutrition and daily habits - not to mention cost.

    ones in bold are my core supps.
    For me, the action IS the juice.

    You might want to think about adding some digestive enzymes with all that food.

    You have a good mix.. don't see any mineral complexes??? Am I missing it or is that in your diet??
    I buy oolong tea in bulk,,, that gives me tons of green tea benefits (closely related but cheaper) minerals and b vitamins are hard to get enough of through diet,,,, when a farmer farms the same field year after year decade after decade the minerals get depleted so our foods lack the minerals they once had.... also I really don't eat the best, optimal mix of veggies,, so a good multi is always a good idea in my life

    Yeah I don't take nearly anything close to them. I try to stick to the basics and where I know I'm lacking.

    oh yeah, last month I think it was 50/50 lol....you'd hear lets go B's then lets go panthers and they 'd go back and forth. 2 years ago when we went....the mascot for the panthers silly stringed a B's fan who was down on the lower level near iceside....and the B's fan mooned the mascot since he couldn't catch him....so he got arrested LMFAO! there were kids all around so mooning was probably not the best idea, but the mascot instigated it....

    My diet is pretty similar.I'm bulking on cycle atm and my diet consists of


    2 shakes 1250kcal each 77p,120c,50f per shake 2.5 scoops whey,1 cup oats,2 tbsp honey,5 tbsp olive oil,1/2 banana,500ml 0.1% fat milk.

    Next meal is 500g of lean beef about 100p,35f and a tin of chopped tomoatoes and green beans 850kcal thereabouts

    PWO I'll have a tin of tuna,a tin of pineapples and 2 banana's which is about 120g of carbs,45g protein so about 600kcal

    Then pre-bed I'll eat 2 tins of Pacific red Salmon and I'll take 1g from fish oils of omega 3. this amounts to about 650kcal

    So theres 4500kcal of clean calories.It is easier than people think.You just need to space the meals out a good bit so that you have the appetite to eat
