View Full Version : Bulking

02-05-2001, 01:49 PM
After my last cutting I noticed Im a wee bit on the scrawny side and horror of all horrors!!! I want to gain a couple of pounds.

Im indulging in my favorite foods this week (I had 2 oh yes TWO plates of pasta yesterday) and then I want to bulk cleanly for a little bit.

the only problem is....dieting and cutting and such is easy for an ex skinny flab person...how to bulk is completely beyond me.

Do I just add more complex carbs?

Kat I would suggest that you start adding back in calories at about 10-15% above what you are currently on.

Start by adding in carbs and protiens, then use fat last.
It is best if you just at the percentage total to your total calories. Then using the same percentages that you have been using.

Example (only)
1500 calories x 10%= 1650

If you where eating 50% protein, 25% carbs and 25% fats, keep those same percentages and just work them from the new 1600 number.

You can adjust the number upwards, about every 7-10 days based on how your body is responding.
