I will say that since increasing calories and lifting heavy, my strength and size has been going up noticably. Funny thing is, I don't even do protein powders any longer. I just increase calories and the protein takes care of itself.

For lunch I just had an apple and two sandwiches. One Almond butter and jelly on whole wheat and one peanut butter and jelly on whole wheat.
What do I do when not bodybuilding or working? Spend time with family, play guitar, write music, snowboard, roast coffee, travel, read, fight for those who are less fortunate than myself.

Powders are just conveinent. Food will always out do them...

certainly true especially if you want quick or instant supplement you would settle for powder.
the sun is the only vitamin that's for free and unlimited.

x 3 and cannot be stressed enough. Supplements are just that - supplements. I see new lifters in my gym downing protein shakes during their workout. It's just so unfortunate because I used to do the same thing because of what stores and other bro-lifters told me. Now I've become so psychologically dependent on protein/preworkout/etc that I don't see myself ever not spending money on them.

The only sports supps I use regularly are Beta Alanine, protein and creatine. My PreWO is a large espresso ~ cheap and effective.

Creatine and protein are the two things you can have relative confidence in spending your money on, save the rest of your $$$ for good quality food.

Hi!
It is very fine article. I think food is so much important matter. I think the bulkers eating so much milk related food. Naturally it has so much protein. And they should remove oily foods. It harmful for health.
The list can be like this . . .
Barley/Vegetable soup
Barley
Rice
Broccoli
Spinach- I consider this and broccoli extremely important.
Carrots
Beets
Almonds/Walnuts/Pumpkin Seeds
Some Tofu
Some Tempeh
Garbanzo Beans
Green Split Peas
Bananas and Berries in smoothies
And must be so much water.

But when it is is around me, I dont clean bulk, way too lazy. I eat granola bars, protein bars, cups of fruit (only fruit in 100% juice or all natural), nuts, raisins, crackers etc.
But when it is about bulking you should follow a good diet plan
Example:

Breakfast: 3 whole eggs with spinach
Snack: 200g cottage cheese with apple
Lunch: 1 can of tuna with bok choy
Snack: 500ml raw milk and banana
Post workout: 1 scoop whey with oats & 500ml milk
Dinner: 150g chicken breast with pasta & broccoli
Pre bed: 200g cottage cheese with berries & flax seeds


Each to their own but there's far too much dairy/whey in there for me, my sinuses would be stuffed after a day of eating like that lol.

I'm all for clean bulking though ~ this is one of my favourite meals right now...

For me I choose to emphasise foods like brown rice, lentils, soaked oats, EFA's, lots of fruit & veges, homemade muesli etc etc. You can't expect to grow if you aren't feeding your body sufficient (and high quality) calories.

I take this diet plan is a joke? Just to add even so...this is barely enough food for a bulk, where's the carbs for one?
