Bulking Protocol – Part 3 |
There are many theories and myths surrounding nutrient timing over the course of the day. Lets take two extremes and see how different prescriptions can be. This nutritional approach promotes a daily hour fast followed by a hour feeding window.
The macronutrient breakdown is not as massively important when compared to the practice of fasting. Having tinkered with fasting a few years back, I can tell much of the positive benefits I experienced came from training in a fasted state and by the very nature, the diet is one of caloric restriction.
While many people on an IF protocol claim to consume large volumes of food, I was never able to consume nearly the calories I was when I was eating over the course of the day, starting at 6 AM and finishing at 10 PM. On the other side of this discussion, we lets examine a traditional bodybuilding diet.
This diet is centered on the consumption of large volumes of food with regular frequency. The desired state is one of constant growth by feeding and thus by constantly eating bodybuilders believe they can avoid a catabolic state and fuel muscle growth.
This diet usually requires meals a day. From personal experience, I was never able to eat 8 meals a day. That really depends on what you are training for and your goals. But since this series is called The Bulking Protocol it is safe to assume you are reading with the goal of putting on muscle and size.
I favor the more frequent meal model, as it is the only real way for me to consume enough calories over the course of the day using high quality food sources. John Welbourn thanks for the programming I love it and have definitely seen gains in my strength. I am hoping you can help me out with a problem I have had since I was a kid. I am one of those skinny people that has a real hard time gaining weight really hard time.
I was lbs 6ft 3 years ago when I first started crossfit. I went up to lbs in 2 months of starting crossfit and changing my eating habits to a much healthier diet. My goal is to get to a solid pounds partially because I am in the military and training for a career field that is very physically demanding.
And partially because I am just tired of being so small. I wanted to see if you have ever had any one come in to your gym that has had the same problem or if there is any advise you can give me. Thanks again for the programming. Bulking in a Bind John Welbourn. Your email address will not be published. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
