Bulking – It’s Not As Fun As It Looks

Bulking – It’s Not As Fun As It Looks

Uncategorized
When I decided to stop cutting calories about a month ago in favor of bulking and trying to finally put on some muscle mass, I thought it would be awesome. No more restricting myself from donuts. No more meal prepping every single week. No more going to bed hungry. I was going to eat everything... the entire world, and feel no guilt about it. That's the good life, right? Well, not really.

Imagine this: It's 2:30PM. You're at your desk, half-awake, trying to get work done but honestly bored the hell out of your mind. You're looking for a pick-me-up. A distraction.

The other day, I was bored and scrolling down my Facebook the other day (as 99% of all millennials do nowadays) and came upon a post about "healthy foods", shared by one of my friends: Wow, this seems like a really helpful post!

And my refrigerator. And save them to my phone, so I can have them handy every single time I go out for food. Except... food doesn't work like that. Especially in the context of dieting. You hear people all the time say things like "Is Chipotle healthy?" or "are avocados good for…

If you live in the year 2017 like me, and you've stepped outside lately, you've probably seen one of these rectangular watch-looking things on someone's wrist.

A lot of people don't find success counting calories because they're not sure exactly how much of each food they're consuming. If you're off the mark by, say... 25%, that can add up to 500 calories a day, which adds up to 1 lb difference a week! Here's the thing about calorie counting: it's really freakin' easy to count if you cook for yourself.  It's so easy, even the Geico cavemen could do it. Why? (more…)

None of those matter, though, because I have time now, and I have thoughts now, and I'll be damned if I don't combine my crazy weird thoughts with that time to produce some unique fitness-related content. So without further ado, back to our regularly scheduled programming... (more…)
