A sample day of my bulking diet

  1. A sample day of my bulking diet

    Here is an example of yesterday's diet. So as to not bore you, I'm just going to list everything I eat, not each individual meal.

    1 cup oatmeal
    10 cups skim milk
    14 oz pork chops
    1 baked potato
    1 can tuna
    1 cup ground beef
    4 tbsp flax oil
    5 tbsp olive oil
    9 scoops protein powder

    According to Fitday, which may not be 100% accurate, but who knows... this gives me:
    5374 calories
    237g fat
    279g carbs
    480g protein

    To make a long story short, I am not gaining anything on this. Not gaining fat, not gaining muscle. Bodyweight has been level at 209-210 lbs for the past three months.

    Training is very low-volume to failure, loosely IA-based. Testosterone is naturally very low, but I still believe I should be able to gain naturally. So I'm looking at my diet. I know I have more than enough protein; are carbs the answer?

  2. Too much fat, not enough carbs. Adjust to 30%pro/50%carb/20%fat, or a 40/40/20.

  3. I'll adjust the carbs up like you suggested.

    Another quick question, what are some quick and easy carb sources that aren't too filling? I've been putting oatmeal in my shakes for quite some time now, but even that gets filling to me sometimes.

  4. Carb sources should be oats, yams, brown rice, whole grain bread, skim milk.

  5. nice sample..............but yes too much saturated fats
