    How many grams of carbs per day on bulk?

    Hi,

    I think I need to start eating more carbs in my bulk.

    How many grams of carbs do you eat on a daily basis, how many meals does this constitute?

    I have about 2 handfuls of wholewheat pasta for lunch at school, and then probably another 2 handfuls for evening meal.

    I have a bagel with cottage cheese before I go to bed ( I know cottage cheese is not a carb so dont flame)

    Lots of carbs.

    400-600 grams daily is appropriate for 90% of males.

    Start reading labels if you don't know how many grams of carbs are in a bagel...
    Food quality does not change the laws of thermodynamics. Provided you consume adequate protein, EFAs, fiber, and vitamins and minerals you can eat whatever you want.

    The only difference between a 'clean' and a 'dirty' food is how much of it you eat.

    The Glycemic Index is meaningless unless you eat carbs alone in a fasted state. As soon as you add fat, protein, or fiber to a meal or have eaten in the previous 4-6 hours the GI is irrelevant.

    Depends...

    If you enjoy eating carbs, then even upwards of 3grams/lb of bodyweight, if you dont, as little as 1.5g/lb will suffice, as long as more fat is ingested.
    Even when bulking, you can do carb cycling, go stupid high one day, medium on day 2, then low(not cutting diet low, low as in, 1-1.25g/lb of bdywt).
    Ultimately, any bulk will work as long as protein intake is at or above 1g/lb of bdywt, youre eating 5-6 meals + a post workout meal stuffed with high GI carbs and protein, and calories are at at least 18xbodyweight in cals(if you aint takin in that much, it aint a bulk!)

    Can you bulk with a low carb diet, high protein, medium/high fat still hitting around 2500-3000 calories?

    I wouldn't recommend it. Is it physically possible? Perhaps. Is it optimal for muscle growth? Absolutely not.
    Food quality does not change the laws of thermodynamics. Provided you consume adequate protein, EFAs, fiber, and vitamins and minerals you can eat whatever you want.

    Bro, youre all over the map.

    You can't just "choose" a calorie range, you have to determine it based on your size. If you want to get bigger, take YOUR bodyweight and multiply by 18, thats at least a start...if youre lookin to gain mass.

    Yes, you can gain muscle on a low carb diet, but your fat intake better be up(the protein should remain the same either way) to compensate...and, its not optimal, carbohydrates are the body's primary source of energy, theyre also the most efficient form, and they promote a high metabolism...fat has a low thermic rate, and it doesnt take much "effort" for the body to digest fats...that doesnt mean theyll get converted to bodyfat easier based on that fact, it means that in a 24 hour period, a diet of high carbs vs high fat, both being equal in cals/protein, more calories will be burned on the high carb diet.

    Now, onto your next comment. Lowering carb% in a cutting diet is done nearly 100% of the time, matter of fact, Ive never read anything to the contrary, if one is looking for general weight loss, its not necessary, but if one is looking for a low bodyfat%(below 10%), it becomes more important, because, with not as many carbs present in the body, the body starts to convert more bodyfat into usable energy.
