    Trying to bulk, BF% increasing.......

    Hey Everyone,
    Stats

    Male
    23
    175 lbs
    15% BF
    5'11
    (not currently using any AAS)

    In one month I have gained 5 pounds and 2% body fat.

    I cant give you an exact diet because it is totally different every single day so it is difficult to critique at the moment.

    Is my bulk working or am I just getting too fat?

    Gaining fat is all part of bulking. Your on the high side yes but do some adjustments to your diet and clean it up a little bit. I normally aim for about a pound a week. Anything past that is mostly fat IMO. You should lay out a diet for us to view and maybe we can help tune it for you.

    Diet looks thought out. I'm sure their some improvements that u will make over time.

    I just wanna know why you have weight gainer in your diet and are wandering why u are gaining fat. I've always been under the impression that weight gainer is a marketing ploy to teenagers.

    I would ax the weight gainer first thing imho

    Also I'm pretty sure that 2% is within the margin of error. Just a thought

    I was not aware that it was a marketing ploy. I take mutant mass.

    and thats a good point about the 2%.

    ****this is a great meal... for a 5 year old minus the creatine

    Work out
    ***after eating peanut butter? how about some slow digesting protein and some slow digesting carbs or fats before this workout

    7:30
    Protien shake/dextrose/creatine/BCAA
    ****still not a meal
    7:45
    Peanut Butter banana toasted sandwhich
    ****1-4 of your diet is peanut butter. try things like chicken

    **** form trend I am going to say this is not a good meal either.

    11:00
    Sleep
    **** and that is where you gain fat from all the sugar and crap and lose muscle from the lack of good foods.

    ............. I feel as if i should be embarrassed to put this up./.....
    **** we all begin somewhere. I can't even begin to tell you where I started. First day of the rest of your better life. at least you acknowledge you need to change.
    ****look for the ****'s
