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.
