But you have to eat more fruits/vegetables and less of that fatty stuff.
I found that when I was bulking, I was living in the dorms for my college career. Since they had a buffet style, all you can eat, rotating menu every week, I could really eat my fill of anything I wanted.
I really stocked up around the salad bar.
I ate lots of corn, spinach, peas, watermelon, pineapple, stuff like that.
I really used it to my advantage, and made sure to make the best of the meats that were offered; staying away from pizza, fried chicken, and things like that.
They would often have dark-meat chicken, and I know it's not the best for staying lean and gaining mass, but if you're really working out as hard as you THINK you're working out, it should be fine. I ate it a lot whenever they had it, and was happy with my results.
kudos to you, but fruits and veggies are low on calories. usually, to gain mass, you have to increase your caloric intake to about 2400-3000 calories a day, and that doesn't come from fruits and vegetables.
i basically eat whatever the hell i want and how much of it i want, and i don't gain weight. i'm not sure your strategy would work for me. i mean, i don't eat junkfood all day, but i will have a burrito, steak, pizza relatively often.
