FULL DAY OF EATING WHILE BODYBUILDING ON A VEGAN / PLANT BASED DIET – WITH RECIPES

Before I started bulking, I really didn’t understand how much whole food needs to be consumed to put on significant muscle mass. When I started my first bulk, I was excited to say the least. More food! More eating! What’s not to love? Well, almost a year of bulking later… I see things from a different perspective. It’s not that I don’t view eating as positive or that I don’t enjoy it, it just needs to be stated that it is work. Eating like this takes effort. There is food prep, dishes to do, meal timing, and of course the actual act of eating the food. Putting on lean muscle mass at a healthy but still fast pace takes planning. I find “Full Day of Eating” videos and articles helpful, especially for beginners to bulking, because they show a snapshot of what a full day is really going to be like. 

This post shows a typical day of eating for me on my current bulking diet. My current diet is plant based and vegan. No meat and no dairy. My meal plan and macros are based off my goals of putting on 1-1.5 pounds a week of mass (mostly lean mass but fat is inevitable). These calculations are based on weekly weigh ins and my macros are adjusted according to the weight I’m gaining. I usually only ramp up my calories by about 50-100 a week depending on how I’m gaining. My stats for this meal plan are below…
