Northstar Posted March 7, 2010 Share Posted March 7, 2010 I am 5,10" and 135 lbs give or take (so pretty damn lean, right?). Been working out for 5 weeks now and have been trying very hard to bulk. If anything I have been losing weight (still seem to be gaining muscle), but have no fat at all to be losing. I eat about 7-8 meals a day and usually somewhere in the range of 3-4 thousand calories. Still can gain no weight, and have been getting a really irritated bowel it seems... compared to how I am when eating normally. I get a lot of gas, bloating and pain, even drinking 12+ glasses of purified water daily. I could eat tons if it were not for my bowel issue. When I really eat for a couple of days I will end up backed up and eventually with the runs and end up not eating much for a day or two, completely counter productive. So maybe I need to focus more on packing in calorie dense foods instead of just lots of food? Heres a typical days eating for me. Breakfast: Vega shake with berries and rice milk or Granola w/nuts and seeds and rice milk Mid morning: Hommus on whole grain bread and/or assorted fruit Lunch: Pasta salad and/or falafel hommus wrap After lunch: Large orange and/or banana Mid afternoon: Salsa and avocado with whole grain tortilla chips and/or cashews or almonds or pumpkin or sunflower seeds Dinner: Stir fry and rice and/or Bean or lentil soup After workout (workout around 7-8 pm): Vega energy bar OR just started Sun warrior rice protein Before bed: Peanut butter toast and/or Fruit salad Any advice or suggestions appreciated.
