I'm new to this site as you can see - I'm sure I've come to the correct place for some quality advice & info.
I've been training for approx 5 years (on & off) & made some good gains in the first 3 years. I'm now 23 yrs old, 6ft tall & weigh 200lbs. The problem is I have been this weight for the past 2 years & can't seem to build anymore quality mass.
I know my diet is to blame. I've been eating roughly the same foods (Monday to Friday) during these 2 years, & eating any old garbage on weekends. I've never changed my eating habits for bulking/cutting phases etc. I think I was afraid of gaining too much fat.
I've always been interested in the weights but never really taken an interest in the dieting (big mistake I know!)
What I would like to know is:
1) What are the main differences between a bulking & a cutting diet, in terms of what foods you actually eat?
2) & do you see big differences in your physique when you change from one to the other?
Thanks in advance for all your help.... hopefully I can finally get serious & make the gains I've wanted to make for the past 2 years.
