  • It's not often that I call someone flat out idiotic....but you are well deserving. Please do the forum a favor and stop posting. Your advice sucks.
  • Ditch the personal trainer, and the idea that you have a "fast metabolism". You don't. You just don't eat enough. Additionally, figure out a more accurate calorie range. There is a LARGE difference between 3,000-4,000 calories/day which would equate to a weekly differential of 7,000 calories, which would yield an extra 2 &…
  • Combine with Whole Milk + Ice Cream + Greek Yogurt + Fresh Fruit.
  • Follow this advice ^^^ No one can tell you what your TDEE is, or caloric requirement to bulk. Start with a baseline and allow metabolic adjustment for a 2-3 week period on your new intake. After this time period, begin monitoring your weekly/bi-weekly weight change AVERAGE. Adjust your calorie intake until you're…
  • It's all about balance, and all these people preaching "junk foods" and the "apparent" harsh affects they have on health markers are largely misinformed and most have no idea what the hell their current health markers are anyways. Enjoy your diet, and don't be concerned with using "junk food" (in balance) on a daily basis…
  • I would say whatever they prefer, because it is really irrelevant and the myth of spiking insulin post-workout has been long sense debunked. Additionally, resistence training alone will create an "insulin spike"...so would simply ingesting protein. The addition of a carbohydrate source post-workout does not benefit…
  • To simply state though that '[x] vitamin/mineral aids in muscle growth & development', is not enough reasoning. What about dose/context/total meal composition? You'd need to know at what dose does [x] vitamin/mineral impact muscle development...to what extent...how does [x] vitamin/mineral act when consumed with partnered…
  • You'd be much better making your own, as it gives you better control of calorie & macronutrient content, plus 9 times out of 10 it's going to taste much better than a pre-mixed one. Combine Whole Milke + Oats + Peanut Butter + Ice Cream + Chocolate Syrup + Protein Powder. Enjoy.
  • Actually this is REAL SCIENCE. There is no scientific evidence behind "clean eating". It's a made up term and an idiotic one at that. I eat all these foods you're CLAIMING are bad for you or "bro science", yet look at my physique. Clearly I'm doing something right.
  • Ironically, I "clean" bulked eating (what some would consider) incredibly "dirty" foods on a consistent basis. Even funnier, prior to learning about flexible dieting, back when I was a "clean" eater I was always pre-hypertensive with blood pressure and at a variety of risk factors with my health markers... Having started a…
  • I'll just leave this here :)
  • Problem #1, he is speaking in extremes, and also idealizing foods in their individual context as "healthy" or "unhealthy". All of which is idiotic when it comes to considering a dietary approach to either phase of training (bulking or cutting). The fact of the matter is that any food in it's individuality (meaning outside…
  • Honestly, I don't believe in 'optimal' rate of gain standardized for every individual. As much as a lot of the top names preach it...I also feel like anecdotal evidence plays a key role in this decision. Personally, my first bulk I developed at right around 4lbs/month steadily for 10 months and remained lean throughout the…
  • Please post recent research/evidence showing saturated fats as cause/direct relation to short or long term health concerns.
  • Water weight + carb intake can make major differences in fullness from day to day. For example, days when I'm <200g/carbs the day prior, I wake up flat and can't get *kitten* for a pump at the gym + will usually drop 4-5lbs over night in water. Days when I consume 300+g/carbs the day prior, I'll be full, have a hell of a…
  • Eating "junk foods" will not affect the quality of your bulk. An individual who is eating "clean" but in a 1,000+ calorie surplus daily is going to gain more fat in their bulk than a person who eats "Junk" but only has a 250 calorie surplus daily.
  • My advice is ignore this advice. It's sad that this guy has PhD, because it makes people believe his advice is credible, when really it's completely idiotic. Also, this member did not add 8-10lbs of muscle in 12-weeks, as the body is not naturally capable of that, even for the newbiest of trainees. Unless of course he was…
  • Yes and no! Flexible Dieting is not an excuse to eat like a complete dumbass. IT DOES MATTER WHERE YOUR NUTRITION IS COMING FROM! Your diet should have it's emphasis placed on whole foods that are both macro & micro nutrient rich that will create a well balanced diet meeting all of your needs. Flexible Dieting simply means…
  • Whether bulking or cutting your emphasis should be placed on targeting your caloires & macronutrients with consistency. Not on how "clean" your diet is.
  • Sorry brother, it's not a nutritional thing, it's a genetic potential thing. Your diet can be as on point as possible, yet you will still not yield 8lbs of lean mass development in two months. There are just limitations to the bodies natural ability to develop muscle in [x] time frame, and it is greatly reduced year by…
  • How accurately are you honestly tracking your intake? Are you using guesstimations/"close enough" for the large majority, or actually taking the time to weigh/measure what you're consuming? How active are you? It's not impossible that you could require upwards of 2700-3000 calories/day to grow...but it's unlikely based on…
  • Solid development in 5 years. Excellent progress. Hate to be the buster of balls here, however after 5 years of training, to expect to see 8lbs of lean mass development in two months is highly unrealistic. 8lbs of TOTAL mass in 2 months, while remaining relatively lean however is reasonable and you'd still likely pack on a…
  • Starting Strength, Stronglifts, AllPro's, Fierce 5, ICF 5x5...all are great programs for any beginner to develop a solid foundation of both strength & mass. As far as food choices. Eat what you enjoy. During my first bulk, I was also right around 3,200 calories/day (at the start) and found it difficult initially to pack my…
  • You poor poor, highly misinformed individual. Ah well, you can lead a horse to water but sometimes they just drown. Maybe someday you'll break free of your misconceptions regarding "clean" foods and learn how to enjoy a deprivation free diet while still seeing results.
  • Okay, how about a nice KFC Famous Bowl? Baconator from Wendy's with a Fully Loaded Cheese Potato? Deep Dish Meatlovers from Pizza Hut? I will enjoy my McDonalds though...as well as all of the options listed above. They're delicious :)
  • More protein does not equal more muscle.
  • 2 McDoubles from McDonalds are much easier to eat, taste a lot better, and provide the same calorie value. I'd rather have those.
  • Of course, we have to take into consideration the VAST difference between top level athletes performing at that kind of intensity, versus the average trainee. The dietary requirements are going to be highly different, and when you reach such a level of success/experience in your given sport, things such as nutrient timing,…
