    You can do it man. Log your meals, weigh your food, and start lifting!

    Took the kids to the cinema today, would usually mean unhealthy eating but just had a latte and protein bar. Will go for a walk this evening and gym tomorrow

    I’ve decided to go into a slight calorie surplus probably about 150- 200 extra per day as feel need to build some muscle on my frame as I’m 6 foot tall and currently weigh 185 pounds and feel skinny in clothes. Any advice or suggestions would be welcome

    Do you have a structured lifting plan for your bulk?
