    Primal Fuel


    What is the best way to bulk while still staying primal? Preferably within a condensed eating window.


    I decided I need to gain some mass this winter. Once summer arrives, I'm going to cut. I will then have access to a nearby track where I can do HIIT.

    I&#39;m working on that too. I just eat a little more each meal and add a glass of whole milk.


    Are you lifting heavy?

    As heavy as it gets lol and going up every week. I think I&#39;m going to start eating a lot more carbs also, up to 200 grams on my lifting days. Funny how that&#39;s still considered low-carb to most bodybuilders!

    I do add a sweet potatoe in here and there. I&#39;ve found that bulking primal vs bulking the old way... the muscle I&#39;m building is dense where as the old way it was "puffy"... I guess it&#39;s less water...

    Could be because your muscles were constantly filled with glycogen, which holds a lot of water.

    I will start bulking next week myself.


    Next week and the week after I am going to see if I can pin down my maint level for calories.


    I had spent from Aug-now in a cal def. I went from 22-23% bf to 15-16% bf. I figure the last bit of bf will come off easier if I have more muscle.


    Since I have 160lbs LBM my goal is 180 LBM so 20lbs in 5-6 months.


    I am going to do the Big 5 Myo-Rep style 2 times a week.


    I have been eating Leangains style for a few weeks now. It is pretty awesome. It is like Warrior diet but you eat a little bit before you work out then the rest after. In total it is an 8 hour eating window. 2-10 for me most days or 3-11 on workout days.

    I&#39;m stuck on 12 percent body fat. I know this is the part where one really has to work hard to get ripped, so I&#39;m going to leave that for the summer when I can sprint outside.


    I hope that bulking with only one meal a day will prevent any fat gain while promoting lots of muscle building. That&#39;s what I&#39;m looking for. I&#39;m going to give it a shot and risk gaining a few pounds of fat.

    Thanks. I did check it out.


    Is there anything in particular that you guys eat when bulking?


    Aside from the usual lots of meat and fats, I&#39;m going to be adding a lot more sweet potatoes, quinoa and bananas, and occasionally soaked brown rice.


    Today I made quinoa with mashed bananas, topped it with cashews and butter, and man was that delicious! Then I melted 100% dark chocolate and coated another banana (they were small) in it... still only at ~100 grams of carbs.


    I would drink lots of milk too, but organic/grass-fed is sort of expensive as a stable.. and I want to avoid the commercial one at all costs...
