Paleo lean bulking food list?

What foods worked best for adding lean muscle onto your frame? Post any foods and make sure to emphasize the staples and any relevant details.

Also, so that people will know who's advice to take and who's to ignore I'll only be upvoting answers that include before and after weight approximations (lbs or kgs) and %body fat approximations. If you can post before and after pics then that's even better.

So an example answer might look like:


November 2012 - 6'3" - 185 lbs - 9%bf : April 2013 - 215 lbs 14%bf

Staples (Staple foods should constitute >50% of your diet during the time period): Ground Beef, White russet potatoes, Cheddar Cheese, Chicken, Basmati Rice.

Misc (Misc foods should account for the next 30-40% or so): Sour Cream, Butter, Sweet Potatoes, Lettuce, Bananas, peanut butter, Brown Rice.

I see you eat Tilapia. I would NOT let that pass my lips, its a GMO fish developed to feed the world, they are grown all over and most of all they are not a specifc fish, they can be anything.

Interesting. Thanks for the detailed info. I haven't re-introduced potatoes back into my diet yet (on an acne-free diet, main reason for going paleo), so I'll have to look into them. Honestly, I think I just need to eat more meat (usually eat about 1 lb of red meat or 1 1/2 of salmon and occasionally chicken daily). And I could easily eat twice as much with my appetite, but alas, finances.

some broccoli, insert random vegetables here, periodic fruit and basically whatever I'm semi-craving at the time. I listen to my body as much as possible, my instincts are getting better. The supplements I take are Vitamins A,D3,K2-mk4,Zinc (picolinate/gluconate) and I consume soft bones enough to meet calcium needs (though I still also consume dairy).

10994 · June 04, 2013 at 4:16 AM

and it's relatively low fat, if I had to guess I'd say its around a 40 40 20 split carbs protein fat. I'm doing this at the advice of another PH member called ForeverYoung who frequents these boards. Also this goes along with much of what I've read from BBing forums. I'm liking the chicken and potatoes combination so far as staples, I actually strongly prefer it to beef and potatoes and to Steak and Potatoes. On the side I have some almonds, some eggs, sometimes whole grain stone ground wheat, medium dairy (glass of milk or a slice of cheese here or there) , sardine bones (soft and delicious)

I've always been skinny and the hardest part about getting big was the eating and finding foods that didn't upset my gut. Dairy tends to upset my gut if I have a lot of it. Potatoes do not upset my gut and neither do sweet potatoes as long as I consume them in moderation. Now though I've leaned down since April and I'm just barely over 200lbs. My goal has always been 220-230 and I'm still planning on it. I've recently been incorporating chicken breasts and russet potatoes in a 1:1 ratio and I'm liking it so far. It's a shit ton of protein and carbs (ate 3 pounds of chicken breasts today)

I'm talking pounds of each per day. Pounds of beef/steak/ w/e. After 205 I stalled, I couldn't force myself to eat more like I could before. In hindsight I think this is good, I put on so much weight so fast my body probably needed that time. So from February through March I stayed around that weight, then decided to bulk again. I focused again on beef n potatoes because that worked so well before. I eventually got up to 215 (with some days where I ate at Wendy's or Golden Corral to get in the calories). Those were at least 4k calorie days and unpleasant.

Roughly 2 Years ago I was vegan and 145 pounds, here's a picture: http://s21.postimg.org/x8arzwohj/31325_1416385325083_7670875_n.jpg . Last April I weighed 165 pounds after going paleo and that's when I decided to gain muscle. The first thing I tried was eating lots of steak and eggs, relatively low carb, that didn't work. Fruit also doesn't seem to help me gain solid weight. After a few months of trying a ton I got up to 185 ish around November. That's when I decided to go balls to the wall. I gained upto 200 by February after eating LOTS of beef and potatoes.

Cool. My post kind of seems basic now that you expanded your original post. :P Topics on bulking always interest me because I've had a hard time achieving my goals recently. What I would really like to see are peoples portion sizes of their staples. Were you really able to put on 30 lbs in 3 months, or was that a made up example? You seem like you're on a good course, so any information you could share would be great.

Sorry, that was bad wording on my part. I meant foods high in fat (which include meat protein sources) + starchy carbs. I wasn't trying to suggest a macronutrient priority. Obviously protein would be the most ideal for stimulating lean muscle gain, which I missed in your post. All I saw was "bulking food list". My bad. Fish would be a good priority. I used to eat a can of tuna post workout when I replaced whey protein shakes.

That's 145lbs? Crazy, looks like 115 or something. But yeah that's too thin regardless.

1edb06ded9ccf098a4517ca4a7a34ebc
14877 · June 02, 2013 at 7:50 PM

Yeah. I got a little too ambitious. I think I look too thin in that also... oddly though I'm still 150lbs in there (meaning I have the most muscle and the least fat ever). At certain point though, dropping BF doesn't do any good for anyone. I think I might try to bulk again over the course of this next year, slightly more aggressively too. I just rip through calories lately while staying the exact same same so I think my body is so receptive right now if I decide to bulk. That's it I'm doing it. Goal June 2 2014 will be 160 and 8%BF.

Lol dude, looking good at 155 lbs in that April '11 (no homo), the 3% one is cool but you look to skinny in that one. 155-160 would be your ideal weight imo. Maybe I'll post some, you won't believe how skinny I was just a few years ago.

Yea, I've been experimenting with different carb sources since white potatoes were giving me abdominal fat. I ran across some story about an actor named Taylor Lautner from Twilight who gained 30lbs of muscle in 9 months eating beef patties and sweet potatoes as staples. http://www.examiner.com/article/taylor-lautner-i-carried-around-bags-of-meat-to-gain-weight .

14877 · June 02, 2013 at 6:44 PM

Yeah, I mostly eat sweet potatoes. I do eat red potatoes occasionally post workout though- I'm not like afraid of them, but usually it's sweet potatoes. The most in 1 day? 2 large ones. I was never full paleo so ate/eat a range of carb sources. oatmeal, rice cakes, sprouted grain bread, post workout dextrose/sugar bombs (concoctions I'd make on my own with varying proportions of Gatorade/Dextrose/honey/waxy maize/coconut water...I've experimented A LOT along the way). I do now and did then go out for sushi about once a week and 2 orders of SUSHI (not sashimi) rolls (Alaskan rolls)...

Yea dude, Actually, after hitting a little over 215 pounds I began to notice a little bit of a belly (36"), which for a 6'3" frame might not be such a big deal, but I didn't like it since I've never had love handles my entire life.. So I cut, which my body naturally does (super fast metabolism or something) really easily. But now I'm in the low 200s and looking to get bigger n better, up to 220 or so. White potatoes though are not friends with my abdomen, so I'm eating more sweet potatoes in place of russets. I'm also eating more raw broccoli at the advice of one of your other threads.

Meat, animal fat, eggs, sweet potato, potato, olives/oil, avocados, coconut, nuts (macadamia has the best qualities and highest in calories).

Basically high fat and starchy carbs are your best bet on the paleo diet.

I went from 225lbs with a 220 bench 25 min 5k to 170lbs close gripping 220 and deadlifting 300+ in about 7 months. I'm now around 180 squatting 250x20 and deadlifting 405x2 with a 19min 5k, and I'm leaner than I've ever been.

Staples: Anything and everything that once had a face: beef, chicken, fish, eggs, bacon, etc. Lots of whey protein. Sweet Potatoes. White rice. Broccoli. Coconut oil. Ridiculous amounts of dry tuna. olive oil. salt.

Misc: oatmeal (not anymore). greek yogurt. butter. fruit. peppers. Ice cream.

These are my food staples. In my opinion, food choices shouldn't differ between lean bulking, cutting, and maintaining, only macros/calories should be adjusted. Don't go on an all out binge either just in the name of bulking. You shouldn't actually be gaining body percentages if you are already metabolically fit. If you have to gain more than 2-3% bodyfat while bulking you're either (a) doing it wrong or (b) aren't metabolically healthy enough to be bulking in the first place. That of course, is just opinion. The following are the foods from my experience.

Weight over past 10 years (rounded to the nearest 5lbs average)

2004 (60 lbs) - approx. 3%bf

2007 (130 lbs) - approx. 8%BF

2008 (140 lbs) - approx. 8%BF

2009 (135 lbs) - approx. 8%BF

2010 (145 lbs) - approx 6%BF

2011 (155 lbs) - approx 6%BF

2012 (150 lbs) - 3%BF (verified, DEXA)

2013 (150 lbs) - approx 5%BF

Proteins chicken/turkey breast, beef/bison, eggs/egg whites, Greek yogurt, cod/tilapia

Starchy carbs sweet potatoes, potatoes, rice cakes/rice, oatmeal

added fats almonds/almond butter, avocado, coconut oil

fibrous vegetables broccoli, asparagus

non-essential additional foods blueberries, raw honey, bananas, sauerkraut, unsweetened almond milk, whey protein powder, other vegetables (peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, mixed salad greens, etc), dextrose/Gatorade/coconut water (can be helpful post workout)

condiments sauerkraut, mustard, herbs/spices, balsamic/ACV, salsa, hot sauce

Supplements (optional) A good whey protein powder (look for BCAA count), glutamine (if training with a high volume), a solid multi-vitamin, BCAAs (only really beneficial during a cut and aren't necessary in a calorie surplus)

Yea dude, it's because of my height, at 6'3" I even look thin, but not skinny at 200 (where I am now), which is where I am now after I just finished cutting. I was 215 and looked actually descent sized but with a 36" waist =\. Anyways here's me as of 10 minutes ago and at about 202 lbs.

I guess i can't put labels on the photos? The top middle was verified 3%BF between Dec2012/Jan2013. The upper left was April 2012. The upper right was July2007. The lower middle was July 2012.

Yea dude, Actually, after hitting a little over 215 pounds I began to notice a little bit of a belly (36"), which for a 6'3" frame might not be such a big deal, but I didn't like it since I've never had love handles my entire life.. So I cut, which my body naturally does (super fast metabolism or something) really easily. But now I'm in the low 200s and looking to get bigger n better, up to 220 or so. White potatoes though are not friends with my abdomen, so I'm eating more sweet potatoes in place of russets. I'm also eating more raw broccoli at the advice of one of your other threads.

like a refeed. I haven't really changed much over the past 6 years except for minor details here and there which is just experimentation.

How do you upload pictures? I'm not going to upload any pics from when I was completely ano, but will just upload a few from facebook that can show a decent amount of changes.

What is your experience with sweet potatoes like, have you gained weight with them before and what's the max # of sweet potatoes you've had per day on a regular basis w/o turning orange?

14877 · June 02, 2013 at 7:50 PM

Yeah. I got a little too ambitious. I think I look too thin in that also... oddly though I'm still 150lbs in there (meaning I have the most muscle and the least fat ever). At certain point though, dropping BF doesn't do any good for anyone. I think I might try to bulk again over the course of this next year, slightly more aggressively too. I just rip through calories lately while staying the exact same same so I think my body is so receptive right now if I decide to bulk. That's it I'm doing it. Goal June 2 2014 will be 160 and 8%BF.

You can't see it in the pic but I carry a lot of weight in my ass and legs, wasn't going to post a nude though, lol.. You'll look pretty sick at 160 though dude, for sure.

Yea, I've been experimenting with different carb sources since white potatoes were giving me abdominal fat. I ran across some story about an actor named Taylor Lautner from Twilight who gained 30lbs of muscle in 9 months eating beef patties and sweet potatoes as staples. http://www.examiner.com/article/taylor-lautner-i-carried-around-bags-of-meat-to-gain-weight .

14877 · June 02, 2013 at 6:44 PM

Yeah, I mostly eat sweet potatoes. I do eat red potatoes occasionally post workout though- I'm not like afraid of them, but usually it's sweet potatoes. The most in 1 day? 2 large ones. I was never full paleo so ate/eat a range of carb sources. oatmeal, rice cakes, sprouted grain bread, post workout dextrose/sugar bombs (concoctions I'd make on my own with varying proportions of Gatorade/Dextrose/honey/waxy maize/coconut water...I've experimented A LOT along the way). I do now and did then go out for sushi about once a week and 2 orders of SUSHI (not sashimi) rolls (Alaskan rolls)...

Lol dude, looking good at 155 lbs in that April '11 (no homo), the 3% one is cool but you look to skinny in that one. 155-160 would be your ideal weight imo. Maybe I'll post some, you won't believe how skinny I was just a few years ago.

That's 145lbs? Crazy, looks like 115 or something. But yeah that's too thin regardless.

I see you eat Tilapia. I would NOT let that pass my lips, its a GMO fish developed to feed the world, they are grown all over and most of all they are not a specifc fish, they can be anything.

  1. Meat
  2. Meat
  3. Meaty Meat
  4. meat with meat on top and a side order of meat.
  5. something that has meat in it.

Ok, I really don't have much to contribute except what has already been said. Good meat and good fats. If you're building muscles, skip the bulking part of body building and just do the cutting part. You won't bulge up as quickly, nor will you tax your pancreas and damage your body with huge insulin spikes like the bulkers do when the carb load. Slow and steady wins the (human) race.

Food that is rich in substances especially in protein that is something which works for it and gaining mass through natural food can help wellness a lot because that is the kinda need of the body its better to gain through natural rather than any artificial thing.
