    Smile Helpful advice on bulking

    Hey everyone, I've been body building for years now I've always cut and bulked up but wantes to put some size on this time.

    I have body dysmorphia so I've always struggled bulking because I cant get my head around eating to grow, my current values is enough to make a grown man laugh

    So let's have a laugh..... lol 😃, I'm currently 75kg I roughly eat around 200g protein, 90g carbs and 70g fats as you can see its basically like being in a constant cut.

    I want to get to around 80kg what advice macros wise do you have that may help me? I'm good with diets maybe too strict sometimes and I know I need to eat to grow but let's be honest the information passed around when you read it / hear it you think "wtf" I did the nutrition calculator and my results came back something like 233g carbs but not sure jumping up from 100g to that can be done without excessive weight gain due to having such a strict diet for so long.

    I always seem to put weight on easily so I'm really bothered about putting in the food to grow.

    What do you think the best split is ? Carbs,protein and fats?

    Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated

    Regards Dave

    If you really want to put on size then need to get your mind right.

    You will be in a surplus and you may have some fat gain. Need to realize that and deal with that. This is why majority never change or are able to change their body. Just remain the same.

    Once you cut though, after an appreciable bulk, you will have something to reveal.

    First read the link that boo99 provided. Come up with calories/macros and post for evaluation if you like.
    Strong mind + Strong body = UNSTOPPABLE

    You're telling me you eat 1800 calories a day? How are you even able to function in the gym, or in real life?

    My hunch is your version of 'putting on weight quickly' is effected by your body image issues...

    Time to take a hard look at your mental state and commit to something, because you're basically starving yourself.
    The power of carbs compels me!
