View Full Version : So much left over fats

Recently I've been having difficulty hitting my fats which aren't that high... I'm bulking on 2600 calories, ~160g of protein, 325-350g of carbs and 70g of fat. Currently like it has been for the past few days, its around 8pm I have 500 calories left, 28g of fats left, 31g of carbs and 36g of protein... What do I eat to fulfill that?!? All I have been having when I reached this dilemma is a protein shake in milk with peanut butter...

most protein powder isn't very high in fat, why you're trying to use it to supplement fat i'm not sure. by nature it's high in PROTEIN

anyhow:
switch from lean ground beef to fattier ground beef (it tastes better)
switch from chicken breast to chicken thighs (they taste better)
switch from egg whites to whole eggs (they taste better)
eat more bacon, butter toast before making a sandwich, eat potato skins (if yours aren't high fat you're doing it wrong)

get the idea?

^first of all this.

Secondly...add in easy choices. Nuts, seeds, PB, oils, etc.

Also, don't worry too much about hitting your macros to the GRAM, it's a good estimate to shoot for though. Alternatively write out a food chart of things/meals you eat and enjoy. Plan out meals the week before and then you can hit them closer and not be sitting around at 8pm wondering "hmm, what would fit in now".

I don't eat egg whites... I do eat chicken breast but my diet just doesn't contain much fat for whatever reason.

This is what I ate so far today:

refer back to my first reply: you're choosing very lean protein sources. choose protein sources which are higher in fat

Were there any oils added to the food?

Twice now you've chomped down on some plain chicken breast, spice it up a bit. Add mayo, add whole grain bread and cheese for a sandwich. Switch it up to thighs. Sub out a breast for a nice homemade burger.

You can either add a little fat to each meal, or add a fatty meal in. Hell, you could even add in some protein icecream to fill it out. Basically heavy whipping cream, protein powder, etc..look it up lol

but legit, just add little things to your meals and you'll hit that macro. Worst case make a salad with some homemade olive oil/vinegar/seasoning dressing.

there are many protein gainers and they have good amount of fat.

You can also just drink tbsp(s) of olive oil or w/e you have. For me, I love mixing my rice with sesame oil with soy sauce.

Tbh though, fat is overrated. You don't have to always get the right ratio from macro. 28g of fat.. that's fine. No worry. Get more fat next time.

how old are you? counting calories requires the ability to alter your diet. if you don't/can't cook your own food, you shouldn't be counting calories. so if you rely on your parents for food, then just eat what they serve you, exercise hard and enjoy being a child. if you're old enough to have a job, buy your own groceries and learn to cook for yourself. or, god forbid, tell your mom you enjoy chicken thighs and maybe she could buy some next time she's at the store.

if you really have the desire to count calories and eat and bulk, then go for it, but like i said it requires you to take the initiative. the people here who are big and muscular didn't get that way by taking what they normally eat and just saying 'zomg what do i do my macros don't fit' that's what people who look like me do, understand?

the people who are big and strong are the ones who decide they're sick of being skinny or pudgy and start cooking their food, weighing and portioning and prepping, etc. it's their means to the end they want to achieve. i don't particularly think that anyone who's 16 needs to be eating that way, because of increased risk of eating disorders and obsessive tendencies, but it's up to you.

Do you like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? Or honey? Or coconut spread (killer stuff)? What about bacon, or a milk shake? Banana split?

How are you eating almost 1k cals of biscuits with no butter????


Toss the veggies your mom makes with olive oil/butter and herbs and make a dip for your chicken using some sort of sour cream, mayo, oil, or use some pesto or something.

your body isn't that weak to require right amount of fat every time. Macro is simply a guesstimation. Listen to your body, first. It will tell you when you need it.

I don't know. OP is 16. May not have a job to afford those "expensive" flavored almonds. He could take a lesson from the greatest animated character from television, Homer Simpson, and eat a stick of butter wrapped with some provolone. Or was that Peter Griffin?

Homer. I am sure it was something he made in the waffle iron (Inb4 waffle) but he used so many ingredients lol.

Be sure to had your pet dog lick up anything you spill on yourself too Op.

YES! That's the scene. It was either in his house or at the Springfield chili cookoff.

I also understand the pet dog reference. I know what that reference is about... LOL Glad to know I'm not the only twisted person who thought OP was the type to do that.

To be fair to Homer, I've done that before. Waffle batter with crystallized maple syrup with pads of butter. It was a waffle sandwich, which was drenches with syrup. It tasted good and that's all that was important to me at the time. haha.

I wrapped tin foil around it so the butter wouldn't melt all over my hands. I made it when I was all fit and stuff in high school. Had to school the Homer.

I are them plate half pre and half post workout. They were pretty moist because of the banana I added to it to counteract the 2 scoops of trutein. I don't have syrup and didnt feel like peanut butter... I was contemplating nutella though but then I just are them as is
