    Great tips! I think I will try them. Eating all protein all the time is not necessarily a super fun thing, like you say. At night, all I want is to stuff my face with carbs and sugar!

      Hey Ryan,
      Yep, I find that it’s (almost) as hard to stay on track when trying to add muscle as it is when trying to lose fat … almost.

    Hey Kevin, one of the major reasons people hate the traditional Bulk is all the excess weight that can come with it. A lot of the time, though, they aren’t sticking with a diet that really follows their true needs, and think it’s ok “not” to consider what’s ending up on their plates.

      Bulking up should not mean “eat whatever you want.”

      Very good point Mitchell, thanks!

    Thanks for this post, very useful.

    Does this essentially suggest then something like bulking (eating surplus) on your gym days then cutting (maybe 10% less than maintenance) on your rest days? Will this get any results in the manner you describe above. Seems to be what you are saying in the bullet points bit. This is what I have planned, but I’m unsure if it would work.

      @Alex: I’m not sure whether eating more on gym days and less on gym absent days makes 100% sense as the body reacts to a workout not just the day you’re hitting the gym, but also post gym, the next day. so if you eat nuffin’ the day after gym, how do you gain muscle?
