    Anyone have a good bulking diet they want to pass along? No matter what I do I can't bulk up!

    I am at 6'2 218 in this picture, not sure of my bf% but I don't look 218. I need something that will allow me to bulk and not gain bf% (clean bulk).

    I am on gh, so maybe that's why i can't bulk?:o

    I've been cutting for so long I am afraid to bulk, I can even eat 5000 calories and still not get any mass.

    example of my diet:

    7:00AM 6 Egg whittes, 2 slices of toast, 1 slice of 2% cheese

    9:30: Protein Bar

    12:00 14oz's of steak, 8 ozs of brocolli, 1 slice of bread

    2:30 - Protein Shake

    5:00 - (preworkout) 10 oz's of ground beef, brown rice, 8 oz's of brocolli

    6:00 - PWO shake

    7:30 - 10 oz's of ground beef, brown rice, 8 oz's of brocolli

    It does, however I am thinking the minimal carb intake is killing me. But I am afraid if I start loading on carbs I am going to start putting on bf which I do not want to do. :hs:

    Poly: 14 128 4%

    So is your carb listing your net carbs (minus fibre)?
    Up your carbs gradually...even to 200g for now to see where it takes you.
    I also am pretty carb phobic but had to up my carbs to about 200g before I started putting on weight.

    Carbs with fiber is around the 155 range.

    I am going to try and bump it up and see if it helps. Thx for the help.

    Goal is 235 at around 8% bf. Started 4 years ago at 260 at around 28% bf, so I've come along way. But as far as I am concerned losing weight is the easy part, gaining good lean mass is much harder. ;)

    Maybe you're not gaining size because you're a foot taller than me eating what I would eat to maintain my weight.

    Add another thousand calories in. If you're putting on bf, back off it a bit. Though with GH, most report that fat gain is minimal on a sensible diet.

    Nothing wrong with that...especialy for someone who used to be a fattie and cut down...

    After I came off my cut last year it took me a good 2 months to stop maintaining and start finally putting on some weight.

    If you don't want to put on to much fat you can try some sort of carb cycling...
