At some point your metabolism should rank up providing your makin it work.
You need to be aiming for four meals & 1-2 snacks (I'm guessing you know this already)

Though I usually just eat a meal & not have snacks I find even after today's 3 soya burgers patties,100g pasta,one cup greens & quarter tin chickpeas my stomach was rumbling about 1 hr 15 mins later. Your appetite is a great indecation on your training. If its responding like I have said then its a great sign.

If however your appetite is low chances are your over training.

I only train three times a week for 60 minutes or 75 minutes tops. On training days, though, my appetite is huge - it's the other days that are pretty difficult despite not being sedentary. I'm probably just overthinking it since being a Former Fat Kid makes bulking a huge mindgame for me but I'm working on that, too.

On a different note, my girlfriend is super supportive of me bulking - she's currently making a pretty epic whole wheat pasta dish for dinner.

I also had to get over that when bulking being overweight in the past. But the gains are worth it. Don't be worried over getting a gut because it's all about getting weight on. You can always take it off when your ready to. Personally I'm strength/power lifting so I'm not all that fussed about a ripped look. I'm in it purely for the mass (when I was running I was pretty ripped)

I train 3 times a week but mc wise all I use are cable tricep pulls, cable crunches (managed to crunch the whole stack this wk for for 8 reps) & maybe leg curls. Everything else is free weight/weighted body or compound. If your eat well on training days that's a good sign.

I'm gonna order Indian food tomorrow, think I deserve it after a 60 hr working week & eating mega clean.

I focus on the big three lifts and only do a few other things at the end of each work out (generally burn sets with light weight) - I was concerned with being ripped when I first got into lifting but now I'm only concerned with getting stronger. In fact, I've been seriously considering doing powerlifting competitions later down the road and, even though that's a long ways away, it's definitely a big motivator for me.

I smashed the pasta dinner and followed it up with a peanut butter cup and shake - felt good.

And Indian food is always a good reward. I always go for that or Thai.

Awesome I'll have a look after your journal. I would usually design my own plans but I found a pretty sweet 5x5 3 day split over at builtfit. Getting some great results using that along with a lifting calculator.

I'm de loading atm but the plan round 7 th week has me worried (in a good way)

I'll get that Morrocan recipe to you over next couple of days

I've been doing a 5x5 routine for about three months now and it's done me pretty well. I've also been considering doing something like PHAT but I think keeping it simple for a while will yield the best results. I'm just coming off of a deload this week so I'll definitely start journalling tomorrow once I hit the gym.

Awesome. I too would like to compete. I work with a power lifter & he's squatting rediculious weights.

He's seen me squat & says I have it in me so maybe in a yr or two it's something to look at. My deads will be my slow gain, lower back injuries in my early 20's.

Still it's the one thing I really need to work on so can't complain.

Bench and OHP are my two weakest lifts - and when one's numbers goes up, the other stalls. I don't know if it's psychological or what but it is frustrating.

Wow! I'm honestly impressed at the amount some of you are able to eat. Apparently I'm doing it wrong :)

Apparently the better question to ask myself now is, "What I am not eating?" I just slammed back a +700 calorie meal (macros something like 24(F)/44(P)/94(C)).
