Increasing your current intake over the course of a few days/ weeks.



4- Eat a variety of whole, healthy foods ( with some cheats tossed in) try to eat about 80% clean. Focus on protein and fat (as in eat some) and lots of veggies.



5- start a good strength building plan and toss in one or two cardio sessions per week. ( work stage)



6- think more toward body recomposition rather than bulk or cut - just eat well and lift hard . (If you need more food - eat If you need less, don't)



7-Building muscle and letting the body do what it does - Get stronger.

8 - Continue for at least a year and be happy with the results. ( they will come) ( reward stage)



Hope that helps. Good luck on reaching your goals.


Thanks for the advice I might be asking some basic stuff but the internet is full all sorts of bull****

From that meal plan I need to eat more?

I would. You are over 100kg. That's a diet I would eat if I were 90kg and wanted to lose fat.

I would especially eat more carbs because you are strength training. Try to take in more eggs and potato/white rice. I think the meat and veggie quantity is ok. Maybe a bit more meat but definitely need to up the carbs to gain size and strength.

You are a skinny guy but you have a frame that can carry a lot of muscle. Take advantage of that and eat to grow. Don't worry about gaining a little fat. You will gain some, but it won't be much because of the way you are training. You can't try to get huge and get 6 packs abs at the same time, it's self defeating.

Many beginning lifters make the mistake of not eating enough. Many also say that they just can't eat any more. This is simply untrue. Lack of appetite does not equate to the inability to eat more.

If you want to do a nice slow lean bulk, the method SCStrong suggested is very good.

Can only agree with the others on here. I had the same question about 8 months ago. I bulked, gained some fat and a lot of muscle, but look a lot better!

What i should have said was - eat everythig in sight and lift like hell for at least a year but I knew you would be "worried about getting fat"

Simple plan:
Eat, Lift, Sleep, Repeat 365 times, then reevaluate.

Ok thanks, but won't I be consuming different amount of calories each day? Or you saying don't count protein or calories?

Have you seen some of the folks on MAB ? ( Bigz and strongz)

You have weight - but you need (muscle) mass.
You would qualify as "skinny fat" based on the photos ( no offense) ...... that is why I recommended recomp versus bulk or cut.

If you have to ask " should I bulk or cut" 9 times out of 10, the answer is BULK.

Train for strength and size shall come..... eat, sleep, gainz

and about 1 to 1.5 grams per lb of body weight is usually enough protein ( opinions will vary)
