You're training to get fat? Bad advice IMO. When you cut off that excess fat you will lose hard earned muscle so bulk as lean as possible. You don't have to be fat to be strong!

Yesterday's lunch was a tofu, rice, and veggie bowl and a rice & bean burrito.

You guys are ridiculous. I can't eat past 2500 a day without getting fat. Where do these metabolisms come from??

They probably have a high NEAT in addition to working out. Lucky dudes.

Exactly. I'm kind of jealous. Well, maybe 4000 would be a bit too high for my taste but I wouldn't mind eating 3000.

Long, slow bulk > short, fast bulk for that very reason. The fat gains will come but I think keeping it to a minimum is key as there is only so much muscle the human body can build in a given time frame.

I think I'm going to go back to carb-cycling since I'm pretty sure I'm going to be upping calories again soon. I went from 1,800 to 2,000 two weeks ago and I'm pretty sure when I do my weigh-in tomorrow the scale is going to tell me that's not enough - I woke up today and, because I felt leaner, looked at myself in the mirror sans clothes for the first time since upping the calories definitely looked a lot leaner. Probably just water-weight fluctuations but I swear, for the first time in my life, I'm starting to see my abs. Bulking fail or I'm doing it right?

I don't recall stating anyone's aiming to get fat? If you think, while on a bulk every ounce of weight you gain will be lean mass then have have been lied to. Getting a gut doesn't mean it's a beer belly, far from it.

Unlike most people I don't buy into what flex or whatever Hollywood routines stating will get you jacked in 12 weeks. Fact is if you want to get big, a bit of fat is always going to be there. I get bored of reading people obsessing over this carb, this macro, don't eat carbs before bed. Its all bs.

Bottom line is do you like what you see in the mirror? Get your shit in order & man the fuck up

Also this is from speaking from experience. 3 stone heavier & I'm still in 30" waist jeans though my quads need more room

Even though I keep track of my macros, I've got a lot better about just hitting my calorie needs and not stressing about where they come from as much (other than keeping protein high). I get bored with people obsessing over meal timing/frequency and saying calories in/calories out is not the bottom line; when you're in a surplus, you're going to gain weight and it should be your goal to try and make the majority of it muscle but it's not possible to gain muscle without gaining fat in the long run. You might do it initially but it won't last forever.

Easy things to follow: Eat whole foods avoiding protein powders unless absolutely necessary. It's good to get 1g protein per pound body weight, if you are over 15% body fat use lean body mass for this.

Finally approximate your portion sizes, not what someone else
Advises. I've just eaten an hr ago & I'm hungry already so I'm eating, some people would think as its not time to eat I shouldn't.

Sounded like you were suggesting over eating. Agreed that some fat gain is inevitable but its about getting maximum muscle gain with the least amount of fat (obviously) I think people often go crazy when bulking then end up loosing all their gains when dieting! Slow and steady wins the race :)

I agree with this. Yeah, being neurotic about weight/fat gain on a bulk isn't the best course of action but neither is just saying 'fuck it' and tacking unnecessary fat - there's only so much muscle one can build over the course of time. No sense in rushing when it'll put you back in the long run.
