Please read everything below if you want to help me.
I'm 18 y/o male, 6 ft tall and 159 lbs heavy. Pic related is me.
I'm currently still doing 5x5 stronglifts and have been practicing GOMAD for the last 2 weeks. Went from 150 lbs to 159 lbs. I know that most of it is fat, but it feels good to be heavier.
Now the question comes... Should I need to clean bulk or dirty bulk? My TDEE is 2500 calories, to gain weight I need to consume 3000 calories.
I've calculated my macros for clean bulk:
450 g of carbs(1800 calories, 60% of total calories)
188 g of protein (750 calories, 25% of total calories)
50 g of fat (450 calories, 15% of total calories)
Now If I do this I understand that my gains will be lean and I will gain 2 lbs in a month at most, but the good point is that those gains will be lean.
Really slow progress, I want to look big before college which starts in 3 months.
DIRTY BULK (GOMAD + FOOD)
If I look at dirty bulk that I've been practicing, for example GOMAD, there is a total of 2560 calories IN MILK ALONE + the food that I eat regularly everyday. I understand that 49% of calories in milk is fat, 29% is carbs and 21% is protein, because I calculated it, which means that during GOMAD I will also gain body fat.
The good point is that I will gain weight quickly and be heavier which means I will be able to lift heavier weights and progress more quickly.
I will gain bodyfat too, but I'm naturally skinny guy so I will lose it quickly too, no?
Thanks for your help.
