The Rules:Bulking when you are already too fat will decrease your insulin sensitivity, which will in turn negatively affect muscle growth. The fatter you are, the more prone your body is bulking if already fat packing bulking if already fat and holding even more fat when you gain more id. This leads to smoother looking muscles and can wreck your look. Gaining fat in excessive amounts and then having to lose it all afterwards ir lead to metabolic damage and stubborn fat storage. If you are gaining more muscle than fat pound for pound as the scale goes up, you are likely too fat already and continuing bulking if already fat you get to this point is a recipe for disaster. For a very bulkinb time many people have been lead down a path saying that they must excessively overeat everything all of the time to gain muscle.

However for me I started my fitness journey at the start of june, and didn't have enough time to cut down to a good bodyfat e. As you can tell I don't have much muscle, but I do have a lot of fat. So my question and for anyone else in a similar situation, is it better to continue to cut or start bulking now? I like the progress that I've made so far, but I feel that if I cut too much now I will look very scrawny.
I also feel like if I bulk now, I will get too fat, which I also don't like the idea of. I have been lifting seriously for 3 months, if that helps with the concept of newbie gains. I appreciate any amount of advice, thanks! Sounds good, I have been fat most of my life and now that Im not nearly as fat, its a little scary to try and put on weight again.
I agree with what that article had to say, I havent been eating enough protein ot calories to put on any weight. I need some more food in my diet. Thanks for the article, Ive saved your comment because I like the article so much. I agree with doing a slow bulk, but Im not sure about doing it long term. I might cut earlier next year and be more serious about cutting and then bulk a lot more in the winter.
It all depends on what your goals are. It's going to be hard to gain muscle in a caloric deficit. Iirc you eat at maintenance or a slight surplus on workout days and eat at a deficit on rest days. Make sure the weekly amount of calories is below your weekly TDEE. Wow didnt know that about the hormones. I think Ive decided to just bulk during the winter months and not try and get too fat by doing a slower bulk.
Thanks for the link. So if you really are sub , you must be a skeleton. Im definitely not big, but I wouldnt say I look like a skeleton. Ill find a pic and post it. Keep cutting until you stall on your lifts. Then you can decide what path you wanna take, whether that's eating more, or focusing on continuing to lose fat. I wouldn't worry about bulking or cutting and would focus on fitness instead for now.
Pick a lifting program and focus on that while eating to support it. But I dont want to get fat doing it. Focus on increasing your weights without putting on too much mass. So monitor your TDEE and calories. Increase your calories if your lifts start to stall, decrease them if your body fat percentage starts to increase. My lifts have started to stall, which is one of the reasons I wanted to start bulking, but sounds good. Sort of have to find a balance in not getting too fat and still putting on muscle.
