I'm currently gaining weight. Been pretty successful for my first attempt. I've gained 15 lbs since I started in October, and it looks good. I'm not as defined as I want to be around the mid-section, but it still looks okay.
I've been taking in a lot of fat and avoiding starchy carbs unless after a workout. For example, breakfast after my workout is where my protein bar, bread/pasta, fruit come in. After that, I'm only eating fats and proteins along with dairy to get the calories up.
However I'm constantly conflicted. I avoid the carbs once I get them in the morning because I want to be defined, but doesn't all the fat affect my body anyway? I feel like I may be going in circles.
Fat helps me get my calories. Been eating olive oil, peanut butter, cheese, avocados... my diet is pretty much 50% fats. Am I wasting my time trying to avoid carbs and sticking to fats/protein? I'd rather be eating 40%+ in protein but it's too difficult taking so much food with me to work, not to mention meat is too lean and dense = low calories and feeling like gagging when taking in to much.
Thoughts? Thanks for the help!
