    My new Lean/Bulk Diet**Ideas/advice plz


    After finding out about www.fitday.com and how easy it is to use and plan out my meals, I recorded what I had today, and am going to use that as a typical diet for lean bulking.

    Stats:
    Ht: 6'4
    Wt:175
    BF: 8.9%
    Cals F C P
    Meal 1) 1 Cup of Fiber One Cereal

    3 Egg white omlette with one peice of non-fat american cheese

    1 large banana
    Total stats for Meal 1) Cals=372 Fat:3g Carbs:83(20 fiber)g Protein:30g

    Meal 2) Turkey Sandwich on Whole Wheat
    1/2 Cup Non Fat cottage cheese with a few blueberries
    Total stats for Meal 2) Cals=378 Fat:7g Carbs:33 Protein:62g

    Meal 3) Open Turkey w/gravy
    1/2 cup of nonfat cottage cheese
    Few tops of steamed broccoli
    Total stats for meal 3) Cals=311 Fat:4g Carbs:33g Protein:63g

    Meal 4) Pre workout Protein Shake Cals=230 Fat:1.5g Carbs: 12g Protein 42g

    Meal 5) Post workout Protein Shake Cals=230 Fat:1.5g Carbs:12g Protein:42g

    Meal 6) Plain Chicken and some broccoli
    Cals=256 Fat:6g Carbs=24g Protein=48g

    Meal 7) A casein protein shake
    Cals=110 Fat=1g Carbs=3g Protein=23

    I also put 90 calories for random sauces and mustards i had throughout day*
    Daily Total: Cals=2090 Fat=24g Carbs=204g Protein=296g

    The ratio is 59%Protein 30%Carbs 11%Fat

    I guess my only concern is that its not enough calories to be a Lean/bulk but that it is a cut, but i have been eating a diet very close to this over the past few weeks and it seems to be giving me mass while leaning me out.

    First off, you definatly need to up cals if you want to bulk. Remember you still should eat an excess of cals if you plan of gaining some weight, but keep it clean and the amount of fat you gain will be minimal.

    Meal 1: drop the banana and eat a half dozen whole eggs--this is a great meal for lots of cals (clean cals!!) so take advantage

    meal 2- make sure that whole wheat is made from whole wheat flour and not enriched whole wheat flour

    meal 3- -->I don't know what this is: Open Turkey w/gravymeal 4-great time for 50g or so of carbs

    meal 5-same

    meal 6-have some milk or a whey shake also

    meal 7-add flax oil


    Also, I don't know if you are counting the carbs from brocolli but I wouldn't worry about it. Furthermore, don't be carbphobic--they're good for you, well the good kind at least.

    Overall, I would keep protein about the same but add 100g more carbs and triple the fat

    Thanks, yeah im going to up the calories, I need the banana cause i just started Melting Point and need to take a lot of pottasium to keep the cramps away, also they are filling and if i didnt have that i would probably have another bowl of cereal, The Open turkey/w gravy is just thick slices of turkey with clean gravy sauce and I probably have that just once a month anyway, i would have a tuna sandwich in there instead. Yeah i just ordered some whey protein and that will probably take the place of my pre/post shakes. Yeah I try not to eat too many carbs, or at least slow digesting ones after around 4'oclock because I know my body and if I eat them late in the day they can be stored as fat. Thanks for the tips . Also, im kinda new to this so this may be dumb, but i always see ppl posting that they eat like 3/4 a cup of oats before working out, what kind of oats and where can i get my hands on em?

    I subscribe to the low gi diet ideas so that is why, i don't think it's a huge deal since he is at such a low bf, but every little bit helps.



    ssor-the oats are just old fashioned oats- not instant, i always buy the house brand because they are cheaper.

    .
    Bananas have a GI of like 55. The greener the lower. The really brown ones will be quite a bit higher.

    WOW man...for your height and weight I would look at at least 4000 cals a day. Partioning looks great, numbers look awful.

    Just regular oats, available at any super market. Just stay away from the Quick oats or the instant. Steel cut have the lowest GI but can be a little harder to find and a bit more expensive. They can be chopped in a coffee grinder or thrown in the blender with your whey and such. I like to cook em up and add some cinammon, splenda and some skim milk.

    While I am concerned with gaining mass, I also want to lean out as well. After running the numbers (im pretty sure i did it right), for me to stay the same weight I have to eat around 2800 calories a day. Even though it seems strange I have gained LBM eating under 2800 calories over the past 4 months, about 15 lbs of muscle and lost a bit of fat so im going to keep this going at least for a month or so. Thanks for the ppl replying about the oats, i'll head to the supermarket tommorow.

    This might be stupid, but what is GI?

    Glycemic index: The effect of different foods on blood glucose (sugar) levels over a period of time. Some foods may raise blood glucose levels more quickly than other foods containing the same amount of carbohydrates.
