Hey guys! I'm new to this forum and I wanted to know what everyone thought about my current diet. I started it about a week ago and it seems to be working out pretty good so far. I'm doing a lean bulk right now. I spend 5 days a week in the gym doing a different body part each day. I have a high motab. but I'm not really a hard gainer... I just don't pack on excess fat that easily. I've been going to the gym (inconsistently) for about 4 years so I do have an excisting foundation to work on. I'm just trying to do it right this time. I used to eat like crap... lots for fast food and garbage. I dieted about 6-8 months ago and worked my abso to death to get a pretty solid six pack. The diet wasn't as good as I thought it was when I was doing it... I was eating things like instant oatmeal, white rice, special k, lunch meat, regular steaks, etc. I just did a small amount of research then and thought it was good and now see how much sugar and sodium I was actually taking in. I still looked pretty good though b/c my anything was better then the crap I was eating b4 that. So anyway, here's my stats first...
22 yo, 176 lbs., 13% bf, 5'9"
I'm trying to get upto about 200 lbs. but I still want trying to put it on lean b/c I've never been an overweight person. I know my abs won't look as good as I want them too while bulking but I'll worry about them when I reach my 200 goal. So below is my diet that I've been doing. Let me know if you think I need to make changes. All feedback is welcome as constructive crit. is necessary in bodybuilding.
