Diet Enigma

For the past 4 weeks I have been eating the following -

10am 2 slices of toast, protein shake, banana - 550cal, 40gprotein

1pm bowl of pasta stuff with meat in the middle (cant remember what its called), protein shake - 600cal, 55g

4pm protein shake, 300 cals, 40g protein

6pm chicken, potatoes, vegetables, bread - 800cal, 50g protein

9pm protein shake, 300 cals, 40g protein

11pm tin of tuna on sandwiches, 450cals, 20g protein


This adds to 3000 calories everyday, 245g of protein each day.

A protein shake consists of skimmed milk with whey protein - 300cals 40g protein. All of these calculations are approx and I have no idea what the fat or carb values are for each meal.

With the goal to bulk, your first reaction will be to tell me that I am not eating enough calories. However, even with this amount of food I have been gaining fat around my stomach, and I dont see how I can eat more without becoming even fatter.

I am 20 years old, 6'3, 79.5kg. I started four weeks ago at about 76kg, however the weight that I have put on, alot of it is fat i think as my stomach is getting large!

A week ago I started a cycle of dbol which has also prob contributed to my bloated stomach.

So that is my enigma - how do I eat more without gaining even more of a pot belly?

    A good way of effectively getting rid of excess fat I have found is to do a bit of light cardio before breakfast. If doing fairly strenuous exercise such as a run this should be limited to a maximum of 45 mins to ensure that your body doesn't start eating up muscle mass. A good exercise I find is a moderately paced walk possibly for 45 mins to an hour, an advantage of walking being that it doesn't tire out your legs too much for your weight training sessions, eg. squats.

    But is a 20 min run every morning going to make a difference when I am at the mo consuming 3000 calories, with the goal of increasing this to 4000 soon.

    I don't want a pot belly!

    I guess this is why people do bulking and then cutting cycles then huh?
