    so I think I'm going to start bulking for the first time. I have a problem though. eating clean, I'm having enough trouble as is getting in roughly 10% over maintenance (~2200-2250 cals) per day. there's no way I'm going to be able to stuff myself with food/shakes to get 3000 cals+ per day this way.

    do you guys consider dirty bulking that bad? if it counts for anything...I'm an ectomorph who prior to lifting ate like total shit (4-5 pops a day, plates of chips, cookies, fried foods, etc.) and never got over ~135lbs during that time. so I'd say I have a pretty fast metabolism.

    I know it may sound like I'm just trying to make an excuse to eat bad foods, but I'm really just trying to figure out realistically how I'm going to get to my daily target cals :hsd:

    i have guys eat 2500 to 4500 all clean. Boo to you and your lame excuse, you wanna be bloated and fat..just admit it and eat what ya want. No ones gonna fault ya for it, esp around here. 1 ab is like contest ready on this site. The other 5 are obsolete.

    You could easily hit the calls you need with peanut butter alone. Shit 6 TBSP of it plus your diet now would be near 800 extra cals and its a great diet tool.

    :rofl:

    I never have and never will be fat. my metabolism is just too fast.

    I guess I will try and find calorie rich foods that are still relatively clean :hsd:

    Seriously dude, dirty bulking is the #1 thing I regret doing in regards to lifting weights. If I would have done it right from the begining I would look better and be just as strong now, possibly even stronger.

    I fucking hate eating healthy but that's what it takes.

    i tried it for a bit and noticed i was but on fat pretty quickly and stopped.

    try breaking your meals into smaller ones but eat more often during the day. also, once you eat a lot, your body will get used to it and you will become hungry. :420: helps too

    hate to say it man but you are by the book citing the typical things that come out of a ecto, including myself. I started reading on here almost two years ago now with the same excuses and mentality as you.

    Its all crap man. If you eat right, you will gain. I was disgustingly skinny and thought I would never gain, two years later after eating right I'm up 25lbs. I was up 30lbs but dropped 5 b/c I GOT FAT after months of 'eating big to get big'. Its possible for you to gain, you just haven't done enough reading and don't have the experience yet to understand that.

    Stop making fucking excuses, listen to the advice you should listen to, and give it a couple years. Don't expect shit in 6-8 months, give it a couple years.

    unless you are a true ecto, bulking in general, and especially dirty bulking ( which is what all bulking usually ends up becoming because it gets hard preparing clean foods especially for us younger guys who are still in school etc) is a waste of time if you are natty, you will just end up getting fat and becoming frustrated with your new set of man boobs.

    I just don't get how harder it gets really. You can even just choose stuff that's pre-made but still a good choice. Usually, time is not the problem, planning is.

    is there actually a significant difference between clean/dirty bulking if the macro ratios and calorie totals were identical?
