    Bulking - fat intake ?

    Hey, i have a question. I know that everyone suggest high carb/moderate protein and low fat diet for lean bulk. Most of articles and videos says that fat is easily stored as bodyfat and low-fat bulk will let you eliminate too much fat gain. Is that true, or not ? Im on lean bulk 300 calories surplus, and sometimes i just had more fat instead of carbs, will it really make me gain more fat ?

    They don't all suggest low fat.

    Those who aren't stuck in the 1980s know that eating fat doesn't make you fat - only an excess of calories does that (from any source).

    not true, it doesn't matter if you do low carb high fat or high carb low fat. just make sure you're getting at least 0.7 grams of protein and 0.4 grams of fat per pound of bodyweight

    Not that I was alive in the 80s, but I always found the blurred distinction between bodyfat and dietary fat to be more a feature of the 90s, from the titles of diet books published at the time I remember seeing when I was little.

    Fat being 'easily stored' doesn't mean you'll gain more fat... it depends on the conditions you're in (calorie-wise), because whether it's too much fat or too many carbs or even (to a lesser extent) too much protein, it's all energy at the end of the day... and excess energy will get converted by some means into fat tissue.

    Alot of the bodybuilders in the 80s ate fairly low carb for 6 days a week, had a day of anything goes. Meals were often things like a hamburger, fried eggs, cottage cheese, sliced tomatoes, lettuce

    No...In fact, a moderate amount of fat may help cut down on fat gain as it helps keeps your blood sugar levels in check. A higher protein intake helps but not as well as healthy fats; your body simply digests that fat slower which cuts back on blood sugar spikes. I'm not suggesting you go ape-chit with your fat intake but there's nothing wrong with choosing chicken thighs over breasts when bulking (or cutting for that matter). Hell, I'm cutting right now and I found sirloin steaks on sale so I bought a family pack. They've been a protein staple for the last few weeks.

    The low fat, high protein, high carb diet was the rage in the 90's and it made my life miserable. You can only eat so many chicken breasts and sweet potatoes before you lose your mind.

    Fat gain is a product of a surplus of overall weekly calories and nothing more
