    I'm in the process of doing a clean bulk and curious if what I'm eating is OK. After seeing other peoples, I'm starting to wonder if I'm having too many carbs (bread) and not enough fat?

    I have finally started hitting my target calories the past few days. (3000ish)

    the fat is a little low...maybe work up to 100g?

    also how active are you? 3k isnt a lot for bulking at 170lbs.

    What happens if you do too many carbs and not enough fat?

    i think the idea is that fat, besides being an important macronutrient, controls insulin spikes so your body is fed at an even rate throughout the day. If you have too many carbs, insulin spikes and your metabolism will be uneven throughout the day.

    i think thats the general idea.

    I'm pretty active...manual labor job. I'm just hoping to stay fairly lean during my bulk and/or hopefully lose fat and gain muscle at the same time how Shady VW's bulk has been going.

    No idea...that's why I'm asking. :rofl:

    the whole 'lose fat gain muscle thing' is pretty hard to do, or impossible. if you have a manual labor job you should prob be eating closer to 4k.

    I'm starting to think the same thing. Not trying to rush into it though. I've only been eating clean and going to the gym for about a week and a half now. It's tough for me to eat a lot of calories as well...I'll be happy when I can cut. I don't really care for any nuts but I may just have to force em down. :o
