Bulking Diet Plan

Your bulking transformation depends on two things: eating at a calculated calorie surplus and eating healthy food. A ‘dirty bulk’ will add too much body fat and leave you feeling bloated. 
Instead, aim to consume around 6 meals a day that pack in plenty of calories. We’ve provided plenty of options for each meal below, so mix and match to build yourself a diet that’ll help you quickly gain lean mass. 
Add veggies such as tomatoes, celery and broccoli, to whichever meal you like. 
Breakfast options – select one from the following list each day.

The beauty of bulking is that you can be flexible with your foods. Just make sure you fit in plenty of protein and keep the fatty junk food down. Your bulking transformation will net much better results if you eat lots of clean food, as opposed to big portions of junk.
