My low carb bulking dietResults 1 to 26 of Can you honestly bulk up with low carbs? I have been clean-bulking nor for a few months and want to up my bulkimg a little Im taking in around grams of protein daily, and around calories, but am dropping back my anabolic amino 10000 price intake a little due to a slight increase in my gut! I am not a noob and understand bulkin in order to gain mass you need loads of bulking up with low carb, calories and protein.

I would have carbs intra and post workout. What are the macros and total calories? It's incredibly hard to say if it's good without knowing that, food choices look ok.
Reficx I would have carbs intra and post workout. For me, this is where carbs would be best utilised for a low carb training and nutritional plan. Wow, never gone that high on fat. What's your body weight? Mate all those gram of protein are just going to be converted into carbs!
Your essentially just eating very expensive carbs. The truth about macros is, there's 2 types of essential fatty acids you need, 8 amino acids and fibre your body can make all the other fats and amino acids. Everything else is just fuel.
You don't need anywhere near as much protein as your told and more protein want make you grow bigger any faster. There are tons of studies about this just do a Google search. Of the top of my head, the lowest number is something like 0. That's total protein not just protein from chicken tuna whey ect that's protein everything you eat! I was 14 stone 2 bout 22 days ago I'm now Both fats and carbs can be considered energy foods, and where there is enough of either to meet energy requirements then they can be considered protein sparing and there will be only very limited conversion.
Of course its possible to eat less protein and progress well, however its also important to enjoy your meals and for a lot of people that means a reasonable size portion of protein rich foods. Looking at basics, well protein has the highest TEF so a higher protein diet will tend to mean being leaner at higher calorie amounts. Overall diet food choices look ok to me although id probably use a little more cheese and more nuts esp walnuts, almonds, brazils and macadamia.
I would probably reduce protein to around g to balance it more closely with fats. And I would probably have around g of carbs consumed immediately after workout. Toxo, no need to be passive aggressive. This guy's theory is far more logical than most posts we get on here. Gaining lean mass is more about how large the surplus is and how long you're bulking for. There isn't much research on insulin spikes during a surplus so avoiding that may make a difference, I won't pretend to know.
That's a massive drop in 22 days, and my guess is you lost a ton of water and fat but also a ton of muscle. As above, high protein is necessary in low carb diets.
Protein will not be converted to carbs, you mean it will be converted to glucose for energy but that's only when the protein has been used for it's main purpose.. Yes, most people eat FAR more protein than is necessary but it's hard to really put a figure on it. Most studies say 0. But it massively depends on how muscle mass you actually have. Dazc, what about carbs intra workout? OP, are you actually lean enough to bulk?
Its not as simple as just carbs, in fact I would go so far as to say that if you were just going to have carbs during training then there is no benefit beyond potential easy energy. When it comes to intraworkout nutrition for it to really be worthwhile there has to also be focus on amino acids and other nutrients beyond carbs.
The carbs can be considered transport for the things that will build muscle. If you don't load the wagons there's no point sending them in! There's also no way you could possibly tell his protein requirements over the Internet. There are studies where they work out the protein requirements of individuals and they find an average amount but there is usually an anomaly in the group where they have a ridiculously high requirement for protein, if he was one of these people you would be telling him the opposite of what he needs to do.
Anyway I'm not exactly smart but watch a couple of Eric helms videos on YouTube, he is a smart mofo. What carb meal would you suggest mate? Thanks again for your replies, I've never really thought to much into dieting it's always been bout the training, so good that you can come on here and get some good advise Cheers steve. Didn't mean to be passive aggressive.
I don't think telling some there theory is wrong is agrssive anyway,The truth is the truth. Eating protien instead of carbs, will make no difference to the amount of body fat he puts on during his bulk.
Different macronutrients proteins, fats and carbohydrates go through different metabolic pathways. Let me show you this with two examples… fructose and protein.
But if the liver is full of glycogen, it can be turned into fat… which is then shipped out or lodges in the liver. Consumed in excess, it can cause insulin resistance, which raises insulin levels all over the body. Insulin drives fat gain 2, 3. So… a calories of fructose may increase your insulin over the long term, lead to higher ghrelin levels and increased appetite.
Protein may also increase levels of fullness and boost the metabolic rate 6, 7. This increased protein may even be used to build muscles, which are metabolically active tissues that burn calories around the clock.
Clearly… a calories of fructose will have completely different effects on the body than a calories of quality protein. A calorie is NOT a calorie. I didn't make post clear, apologies. I would never have just the carbs though lol, unless I was doing a strongman day for fun and needed the extra kick.
It's not as simple as just scale weight and how much fat is gained. He said he feels better on higher fat, so as his carbs are low carbs are protein sparing he will need more protein. I understand for the most part it's all about calories in vs calories out law of thermodynamics , but in a surplus I wouldn't agree the rule applies quite the same.
