I'm FINALLY bulking again. I went on my own version of a keto diet (for spring break cut) for about 2 months, lost a ton of fat and wound up looking like this: About 2 days after those ^ pictures were taken, I went to the Bahamas for spring break. Was there for exactly 7 days. I did not work out, drank day and night (lots of liquor, bahama mamas with tons of sugar, yellow birds, pina coladas, rum and cokes, etc), ate like shit, etc. The day I came back, I took new pictures. I wound up looking like this from drinking and eating like shit for a week straight. Keep in mind this is right after coming off a keto diet and prepping myself for extra carb intake one week before spring break: Now, I'm bulking. The past four days, including today, I have been averaging about: 2300-2400 cals 40-55g fat 250-260g carbs 250-260g protein All carbs are either from whole grains (whole wheat bread, whole grain oats), vegetables, MILK, and fruits (I don't have any more fruit after about 3 PM). Fat is from all natty peanut butter, raw almonds, the oatmeal, banannas, and a tiny amount from roast beef (I also eat lean ham, turkey, chicken, roast beef, etc.) Protein is from lean meats, protein shakes, whole grain protein bread, nuts, peanut butter, banannas, oatmeal, and milk. Keep in mind I was 143 lbs when I started a few days ago. Four days later, today, after hitting the gym hard everyday, doing cardio every other day, working abs every other day, and lifting HARD, I'm even more cut and bigger than I was when I ended the keto diet. I think this has to do with me taking a week off (rest), and my muscles absorbing carbohydrates. I feel fucking AMAZING, have the most energy I've had in months, and my head is so fucking clear. I feel like I'm on fucking steroids. I mean, I am 17, and I DO have the most test I'll ever have naturally, but fuck I feel incredible. This is the cleanest I've ever eaten. I've been keeping an eating log on fitday and hope to post new pics in a month or so. No specific reason why I posted this thread, I guess maybe to inspire others not to cheat or some shit? I'm kind of just ranting now.
