3600kcals and i still cant gain weight...
Ok guys this is starting to get pretty frustrating. I started my bulking at 183lbs and its been about 3 weeks now and my weight is 184lbs. I gained that 1 pound in the first week but the last 2 weeks i havent gained any weight. What should i do guys. Should i be more patient, add more carbs, or just add 400kcals this week.
My current macros on training dayz:
p=285 c=263 f=116g

Slowly increase it by a couple hundred kcals a day? That might work.

Im just no sure if i should increase. Im only 184lbs i should be able to gain with that many kcals. I dunno maybe my metabolism is just nutz.

this is strange bro. esp b/c i know you got the nutrient timeing down. i was 190 and got up to 216 natty in 3 months on 3100. when i got stuck at 210 after month 2 i just started to add more carbs in meal one and PPWO. Also, whats your cardio look like?
07-02-2004, 06:53 PM #5
i do 30 min 3 times a week. I dunno bro you must have a much slower metabolism then me.

Yeah, aparently you have a ridiculous metabolism.. Maybe cut cardio to just 2 days a week and increase carbs like DCB suggested?

Decrease the cardio, and try adding a little more protein and carbs. I weigh 190 and Fitday figured my basal metabolic rate without cardio to be around 3500... Weird...

Definetly a good idea. If you still don't see results after a week or more of adding the carbs/protein/kcals then come back and we'll all try to help you figure something out bro. Goodluck.

do you have previous good results from that c/p/f ratio?
in your position id up just the carbs by about 100g per day everyday. i don't know how big your pwo meal is by id try and stick them in there.
if your in a colorie surplus every day aside from your morning meal and and pre and pwo meals, i realy dont think nutrient timing has much of an effect, just get the calories down your neck...

make sure your resting and not overtraining. if your not getting the required rest you wont grow. if you train to much you wont grow. diet is one important factor but there are others

thanks guys i really appreciate the help. I only get about 6-7 hours of sleep per night because of my work and such. There really isnt anything more i can go about that because i already go to bed at 10:30pm everynight any earlier and i dont think i would fall asleep.

You have to up your carbs... I suggest you lower your fat intake to around 90g and up your carbs to around 300-350.

yeah man up them carbs. always gets me out of a rut when i stop gaining
07-04-2004, 05:43 PM #15
ya im gonna try that guys thanks.

your protein is incredibly low. I would up it to 400g.

I ran into the same problem last year with my bulk, and i just brought my carbs up slowly about 300-500 cals and then i started gaining again. Also 400g protein for your body weight does seem high, but if you did that you would definity start gaining.
