My Bulking Diet

I am not a fan of the “Dirty Bulk” or the eat whatever you see diet. They will help put on mass, but the quality of muscle that is put on is much lower than if you were to eat healthy whole foods. I am a big fan of timing carbohydrates for a few reasons.

  1. They help fuel the workout as well as recover from it
  2. Less likely to turn into fat
  3. Insulin spikes help promote muscle gain

I am not a fan of eating carbs throughout the day, but that is just how my body works. I feel much better, and have much better gains when I eat carbs around workouts and fat when I am further from the workout itself. Here is what my diet looks like on my training days (6 days a week). Sunday is my active rest day and I tend to take in fewer carbs, but more fat.

Best of luck with your bulking phases. Success is voluntary.
