    Problem with my diet

    Hello,

    I've been "bulking" for around 8 months now, I've been following a diet plan that my ex trainer did for me (attachment). Anyways, I have been gaining muscle BUT I have also been gaining fat. What can I do to continue bulking BUT try to control the fat gains? On days I dont lift weights I just do cardio for like 25 minutes, should I increase cardio? Eat less? I could eat less but that would mean that my muscle gains would also slow down... please help me!!

    Welcome to the world. The more you eat the more you gain. It is all simple math. If you want to slow down excess fat gain you will need to also slow down muscle growth. It is just how your body works.

    disagree. u can gain muscle with out a tremendous amount of calories increase, which means he can slowly increase the cals and workout hard and gain lean muscle mass if he is doing cardio he will lose body fat athletes use this method all the time. however this is a much slower approach to bulking as where over eating dramatically will bulk u quicker however most gains will indeed be fat % increases.

    Unless he is a beginner or on drugs, it is almost impossible to build a significant amount of muscle while losing fat. Just not gonna happen.

    I have a feeling you wrote this wrong, if not you are incorrect.

    Increasing caloric intake (i.e. 10000 calories over) will not gain muscle any quicker than 500 calories over.

    Yes, it will, but not by much. The ratio between muscle:fat will decrease tremendously, so it's not by much. 500 is no magical limit where everything over will turn into fat.

    exactly. 0.0001%

    my point was that eating an extra amount isn't going to make any difference as your body can only synthesize so much muscle at once anyway

    I agree. I apoligize for my pointless behavior.
