Randomguy1335 is off to a bad start

I eat whatever, tracking my calories/protein/fat, also making sure I hit my fiber intake and try not to go too much above it.
Trying to get plenty of micronutrients in through veggies/fruit.
I also practice intermittent fasting. Meaning I basically gorge all the food in 2-3 hours and then the next day at 2pm I eat again.
Saves a lot of time and basically allows me to overeat like a pig once a day, that's why I love it.

Use common sense.

Use balance.

Eat when hungry.

Drink plenty of water.

Minimum 180 grams of protein per day.

Minimum 25-30% fats per day.

Eat whole, nutritiously dense foods 80% of the time.

Know that it is hard to get fat from foods that aren't calorie dense. (Easy to eat 800 calories of gummy worms, hard to eat 800 calories of potatoes...therefore, you can eat more bulk when the foods are calorie dense and still have a hard time getting fat.

If you can't gain weight, take a precise one week look at your calorie intake.

Learn how to cook. 99% of bodybuilding meals suck, and are as bland as licking dirt.
I try to follow these rules as well, the biggest thing that I have noticed is that even when I am not hitting that protein amount, I am still making gains and progressing.

I think the protein recommendations are a tad higher than what you actually need to accomplish good gains and progress, but either way it doesn't hurt to get a good intake.

Class I Total @ 198: 525/335/600 (1460)
