Week 2 of Bulking Diet

Just this week, I increased my daily intake to an average of 4000 cal/day. So far, it hasn’t been a tough task to eat that much, other than I feel like I’m wasting a lot of time in eating 🙂 The picture above was taken a couple of days ago, after 10 days of bulking phase.

I should have posted my stats from earlier this month when I first started the bulking phase:

Weight: 155 lbs
Chest: 41.5 “
Waist: 31″
Thigh: 21.5″
Bicep (flex) : 15″
Calves: 14″
Benefits that I discovered from increasing my caloric intake the past 2 weeks:
  1. I feel more rested and dont  get that much sore. Of course the Recovery Formula helps!
  2. Usually when I’m lifting heavy, I’d get joint pains but no more
  3. My strength and performance has increased. I dont think I’ve ever lifted this heavy since I’ve moved to Santa Monica
  4. My energy level throughout the day is better. I dont feel groggy or lethargic and it is easier for me to fall asleep at night.
  5. My muscles are looking more dense, and even people telling me that I’m looking more cut even with higher intake.

I guess we will have to wait to see my measurements by the end of the month :)Here is my diet for yesterday for those who need some idea on eating high volume:

* The vegan burger and quinoa that I had for lunch is just an estimation. I had the Works Burger from The Golden Mean Veggie Cafe, here in Santa Monica, but couldnt find the burger on the database.
