Day 58 on Gaining Diet

March 30, 2013

More carbs,more protein,more healthy fats, what more can be expected from a clean diet like that? My coach has given me a nice clean diet to follow and obviously it’s up to me to follow it religiously which I have been. I’ve been skipping out on hanging out with friends,skipping out in taking the one small bite of cake or cookie. I’ve stopped myself from having a small handful of chips. Food is a powerful drug, as Jay Cutler would say:“I don’t eat for taste, I eat for function.”

I can remember when I first started dieting with my coach,he gave me a muscle building diet first and I looked at it,didn’t take it too seriously,only made the breakfast he had for me. But then after about a week we decided for me to start the Keto diet to cut the fat,which I did. Then Ramadan came along so I was “dirty bulking” but I couldn’t work out or maintain the muscle within that month so I pretty much lost part of the muscle. Once October of 2012 came along I started to cut the fat again and now I am in the process of a nice Clean Bulk phase. It’s tough but so far so good.

It’s been tough,gaining 1-2 lbs of muscle,judging by what I see in the mirror I’ve gained 2/3 of muscle and 1/3 of fat. My abs are still outlining but I can see the belly fat covering it a bit. 5 more weeks then we start cutting again with more minutes added to my cardio regiment.

I want to first start off with this link that got me to start today’s blog: I won’t lose

I was thinking, we rely in our parents growing up,we rely on them for everything; sometimes we rely on them even when we shouldn’t and are too old. I know I do,we all do that. If you want to take matters into your own hands, if you want to stand on your own two feet and be an independent man or women then you need to take responsibility not only of your actions but of your thoughts and words. You need to recognize what your doing wrong and see how you can fix it. With me it was how I was eating everyday & how I was working out. I know 5 years ago I was crazy strong,but due to a stupid injury on my part I had to rehab myself back to perform properly at the GM but never as heavy anymore. It bothers me still to this day. An example was back in the day right after high school I was able to do 80 lbs each arm for dumbel press 8 times, I did t without a spotter and my arm went totally the wrong way. I heard a rip and pop,I knew there it wouldn’t be the same then. My shoulder had gotten swollen the next day and I couldn’t move it at all. I spent 8 months eating whatever I wanted, hating all the fit people I saw, becoming jealous,envious if the people I went to school with, I started cursing my genes and how I’ve become. It wasn’t till I walked up a flight if stairs and almost collapsed that I realized that I need to take matters into my own hands and stop being a lazy person. Many diseases start off with obesity or being over weight. I wouldn’t let me genes determine who I was or my laziness,it was time to act. So I had cut the body fat from my bringing BMI of 30% all the way down to 12%, rose up to 19% cut again down to 11% & now I’m doing a clean and healthy bulk to gain muscle. I still do cardio everyday but my diet is the one thing I need to keep my finger on. We can’t rely on other people to motivate us,it always and must come working. Are you tired of looking at the mirror at the same over weight you? Are you tired of being out if breath,not able to run a mile under 10 min?? Take charge of your life because in the end no one will do anything for you except you, what the mind wants,it’ll get so focus yourself mentally and through the Grace of God it’ll come to you when you put your Mind to it.

When I’m hungry I snack on cucumbers and spice.

So far is day 37 of the gaining diet. Haven’t changed the diet in 2 weeks for sure,gaining 1-2 lbs of muscle per week with a little bit of the occasional fat of course. When your gaining then you’ll expect some fat gain as well depending on how clean your diet is.

I’ll go for 3 more weeks before I start cutting again. Hopefully the muscle will burn fat faster.

Gaining diet day 30

March 1, 2013

Sorry to all for not keeping up with this blog. It’s been a crazy few months. Here’s my first entry on my blog:
Vlog day 1

Also here is me trying a back workout that I have t done in 6 weeks: single arm rows,135 lbs each,no straps

I’ve been given by my coach a 12 week training program along with a new bulking diet. I was skinny but felt and looked flat at 11% body fat.

It was time for me to start rounding the muscles out and feeling fuller,adding carbs & healthy fats slowly back into the diet; again I am trying to achieve a beast mode look all natural.
So far so good,I’ll let you guys be the judge:

The last pic is flew Lewis,that’s my goal but not as big,I’ll try and get to at least 175-180 lbs with 8% body fat,gaining is tough but muscle is building fast for sure,1-2 lbs added every week. I did gain a few percent body fat but that’s from the cheat meals once per week. Still training incredibly hard and still looking vascular so I know I shouldn’t have to worry about the fat gain,especially once I start cutting again in 6 weeks.
