I used to be a pretty big guy. After loosing a good amount of weight I now have a bit of loose skin around my quad area. Right now I'm 6'1" 200 lbs around 12-13% bf. Haven't had bf tested in a while due to lack of access to school hydrostatic tank. I do know that my top 4 abs are showing quite nicely. I was wondering if you guys think I should switch to a bulk diet now to try and fill some of the loose skin and then start cutting again?
Also is it common for a formerly obese guy to be kinda apprehensive to wanting to bulk due to dieting for quite a while?

yea bro i did same thing and i would just clean bulk clean bulk is when you eat proper protien and some carbs but only good healthy lean foods. I lift heavy at the gym to fill in the loose skin I still have some around my belly but its all coming together. nice slow clean bulk is just what you need Fish,chicken,eggs,whey,casien,peanut butter, seafood(any), nuts(almonds) these r just some of the best foods you can eat while bulking Hope this helps

good carbs r pasta , whole wheat anything,potatoe sweet is the best but dousnt matter, and i would say oatmeal is my fav meal while bulking and whey i use casien at night with peanut butter to get my good fats and slow protien thru the night

ive been clean bulking for past like 6 weeks. ive noticed big difference between clean vs. dirty. right now i feel great. ive been gaining weight and muscle but the fat gain is also kept low. clean bulk is your best bet

Ok, thanks a lot fellas! Here's the plan: Increase calories by 200 every week by just increasing the amounts of foods that I am currently eating. Once I get to around 3000-3500(depending on how fast I gain) stay around there until I hit around 215-220lbs. Sound good?

Am I missing something?

It doesn't add up to 2000 calories to me when having the casein shake only. You must have the cottage cheese/cereal lots
