I am 175 and trying to bulk up to 185-190
Can you guys check out my diet and tell me if it's fine or I need to change anything?

Is that enough calories to bulk up?

I usually end up with 115g fat, 220-300g carbs, and 240-275g protein.... keeps the %'s a little more even but I'm not sure if it's unhealthy to consume that much fat. :dunno:

52g saturated fat does seem like a lot.


avocado, olive oil, fish oil, nuts, etc. I bet you'd lose a ton of saturated fat if you switched to 1% or skim milk. and replaced the fat/cals with one of those healthier fat sources.

BTW, what chicken are you eating that contains 18g of fat for just one cup?

looks like he just selected the standard chicken option on fitday. the chicken breast option is 264 cal, 10.4 fat, 0.0 carb, 39.9 protein for the same portion size.

Dude needs to fix that.

Sometimes fitday numbers are off and you have to create a custom food and adjust it yourself. I've got my fitday shit down to a science by now.

I don't use fitday numbers at all. Mine are all custom from the labels and I think it's far more accurate that way for many foods, especially different cuts of meat.

Yea I usually use custom food but for chicken leg I forget to keep the labels.. so it's actually a chicken leg which is around 300 calories as well I think

fat's fine, too much carbs though if you care about being lean

calories are pretty low too

Personally I'd bring fat down and bring up pro, could lower the carbs some too.

But what do I know.
