    FOOD: Eat, Eat, EAT!
    If you wanna put on mass, you have to EAT constantly -- Similarly, If you are looking to get extremely lean, you have to time your meals the SAME as if you were bulking, you just switch the types of food you are eating.

    Generally these simple rules will go a LONG way:
    For Bulking and Cutting--
    1. Eat EVERY THREE HOURS (I'm talking from the minute your ass gets out of bed, til the SECOND you lay your little head down at night, EAT DAMN IT!)
    2. RED MEAT as your last MEAL before bed (do not confuse this with the PROTEIN SHAKE that you should be drinking IMMEDIATELY before bed) -- The aminos in Red meats are digested slower by the body (than say for instance fish or chicken) and so they are ideal as your last MEAL because you won't be eating for the duration of your nights sleep (if you can eat and sleep simultaneously, we need to talk because you could be making a fortune right now selling your secret icon_eek.gif )
    3. Eggs for breakfast, then alternate white and red meats for your other main protein sources throughout the day. (For cutting, reduce the number of yolks you intake to a quarter the number of egg whites.)
    4. White carbs for bulking, DARK CARBS (wild rice, whole wheat bread, wheat pasta, etc.) for cutting.
    5. Do all this, spacing out between an evenly proportioned number of meals to get 2x your bodyweight in grams of protein (and for mass building DEFINITELY 3x your body weight in carbs -- the BEST and perhaps only way to achieve this is stick a potatoe {sweet or otherwise} onto EVERY SINGLE MEAL -- it's that simple ... you will swell up trust me. -- No carbs means no calories means NO SIZE ... I used to weigh 130 pounds soaking wet with a rock in my pocket, I didn't put on 40 pounds of mass by eating subway sandwiches lol you gotta eat MEAT and POTATOES and GRITS (hehehe) (don't clown, I love grits by the way)

    Good Luck everybody and message me with any questions!

    Follow these guidelines in a 4/4 split -- meaning for 4 weeks, eat a bulking diet and then 4 more eat a leaning/cutting diet -- you will be amazed!!!

    I wish my food budget allowed for that much eating.
    Two meals per day is all I can afford right now (and that's pushing it); and I don't cook, so it's all restaurant food. Thank god for buffets with healthy selections so I get at least some nutrition. icon_lol.gif
    *accepts fact that I won't get ripped on this budget*

    Scally said

    well this advice will not apply to everyone the guy who wrote this was 5.7 short guys and tall guys its different.Just a reality check.


    True, tall guys and short guys (me) have different bodies and different training techniques will create different responses. However, biologically the human body doesn't vary too much with respect to the fuel that it needs, regardless of height, race, gender, (sexuality icon_eek.gif etc.) I wrote this so that It would easily apply to someone of any size ... regardless of your height, your initial body weight is what controls the conversion -- not your height. And generally (and I do mean generally) taller people weigh more, so correspondingly your weight will increase, and your body's need for protein/fats/carbs will increase along with your height

    Question, why should you take the protein shake immediately before bed?

    Does this apply even if the protein shake is high on calories? I take Nitro Core 24 which has around 200 calories per scoop (which is pretty high...I think?), 2 scoops per shake plus 1 glass of soy milk, around 500 calories per shake, I'm on my slimming down phase, but I want to start bulking up in the next couple of weeks.

    Thank you for your advice icon_smile.gif

    It is said that you should drink a casein (expensive) protein shake before bed because it's slow to digest- so it's supposed to act like a 'muscle life-support.' Cottage Cheese works too.

    Nope, not trying to increase my credibility -- this advice if anything doesn't help me but hurts me because it takes time away from studying (I'm in law school) ... I just give it cause people ask and I enjoy seeing other people enjoying working out. I know what it does for me as far as stress relief and overall health. And coming from a family where your father is a drug-addict and a lot of your friends around you have given up on themselves and given up on leading happy, healthy, productive lives, I'm just in it to be a postitive influence on whoever will partake.
