Just a thought.

Ryan Gosling in love actually is my ideal, and I don't think he's super bulky or big. But he ain't skinny either.

So is the answer to my miracle conception just macronutrient split? I just ballpark my foods, but here's my general day-to-day-diet:

4 scoops protein downed with chocolate milk (over several servings), ~1200 calories

a meal with meats and vegetables, ~700 calories

a bunch of fruits, ~300 calories

random shit throughout the day, maybe a bit of soda, some snacks here and there, ~300 calories

when hungry, I eat another meal for the day, ~500 calories

on lifting days, a 110g of almonds, ~500 calories

I'm not eating over 3k, and I'm definitely averaging less.

No, really, it can't all be fat. I still have definition in my arms and upper-upper body. But I look like I'm in the second trimester.

Hannibal is overrated, and so is Sherlock.


you're eating too much and not lifting enough. Its called being skinny-fat. Cut down on the calories, you probably don't need as many as you think, especially if you aren't building on top of a lot of previous muscle.


I'm really not eating that much, like it can't be more than 2500 a day. I'm lifting 3x week, my PR's for 5rm are:

bench - 90kg
squat - 110kg (injured lower back still hasn't recovered fully)
OHP - 50kg
strict form pullups - 12

I mean I'm no ahnold but I don't think I'm skinnyfat.


Where's the deadlift and barbell row?

if your male, there is nothing wrong to getting "bulky" and there are perfectly acceptable ways to add conditioning within your weight routine. I haven't done conditioning in weeks, but have actually lost weight. Its all about the intensity and how you do your weights.

My back is in bad shape so I'm not gonna test my PR's, I just do light-weight high rep deadlifts, and I haven't tested my PR for barbell row. I do a lot of pullups, been plateauing recently. I treat rows like biceps or lat raises, shit you do but not something you seriously track.

Lifting is good, I think what rigo was saying is that there are lots of heavy lifters out there just trying to get bigger and bigger, and I think the competition in some gyms to get bigger is a trend...idk, but that's what I understood him to mean. I do both, cardio and lift, but while I used to do classes like body pump, i now do more of a circuit training deal, and I'm finding that the combination of cardio/healthy eating/moderate lifting is giving me more definition than when i used to primarily lift heavy things. I also think each person has a different method that will work best for them

they don't have to be exclusive. And if they are, even though you have different goals, you're lifting wrong.

theres more than one way to skin a cat, but you are right about people who exclusively do long-form cardio. I got into phenomonal shape using just body weight and resistance bands by circuit training. I would alternate upper and lower body exercises cause it forces blood flow constantly to different parts of your body and it burns tons of fat, during and after. I also did interval training three days a week.

I also have done 5x5 type workouts that have worked well for body recomposition when coupled with interval training, but I have never felt as good as I did when I was doing body weight/resistance band circuits.


You're absolutely right. I guess I should have said "strength training" instead of lifting. I use body weight exercises all the time, especially push ups and pull ups. Resistance band kettlebell push ups kick my ass.

fuck protein powder. I'm being completely serious. 2 spoonfuls of PB. That's all you need man. Whenever you have an urge to eat, you scoop PB. That's it dude. The people giving fitness advise in this thread are being WAY too elaborate.

Are you referring to cardio and lifting here? I agree if that's the case. Lifting right will provide a sufficient amount of cardio.

lifting the right way will. With sufficient pacing and reps. There's a difference between conditional lifting (what I had to do for college baseball) and bulk lifting.

I took some pics to demonstrate the issue at hand. Like it's a serious problem you'll see. So I'm 6'1'' 78kg, y'all can go back to see my lifts. These are all taken within seconds of each other.
