    Hi, I’ve posted before about nutrition and was told to go to watch the videos of joes prep. (Of which I’m no professional bodybuilder) or have the time most pro’s have. I am just a truck driver, my job is active on most days and I go gym 5-6 times a week (currently following joes and Terrance’s program on week 5) < with this tho I lost my workouts after week 4??? And put me back to week 1? But yeah I do meal prep everyday, and I’m very disciplined and consistent with my nutrition, my current weight is 68.7kg (been on a bulk for 5 month from 62kg, macros are P154g C381g F68g Cals 2750ish having 5 meals a day! My BF is low but feel like I’ve plateaued with the food side of things. I previously had a coach that would tweak my meals at check in’s etc according to my body/weight and BF/activity changes etc. Im not asking for a meal plan but my goal is to get to 75kg (maybe 80kg) then do a cut, but it’s what to tweak within my meals, when to decide to do a cut at my point of training and how long to do a cut for etc. My general life style doesn’t change with family, work and just living a normal family man lifestyle, I get my training in but just need some extra guidance on nutrition if possible. I’m getting my protein in each meal , I’m hitting my macros (even on non training days I eat the same) my energy is high, stress is managed, my sleep is managed/consistent and I’m in a good routine, everything is good, but I wanna get my diet (which is good and clean anyway) I’m control of properly, with keeping it simple. I eat meal 1 at 4am, meal 2/3 I take to work with me, meal 4 is my dinner after the gym and meal 5 is pre bed. Sorry for this long ass message but I tried to get as much info as I could with even more waffle haha. Hope you understand 👍🏽 Also I’m on week 5 of Terrance’s and joes program, when should I re-calculate Cals/macros? Before I do a cut? (Week 4 took me back to week 1)???

    What is it that you are asking? How to gain weight?

    If you are consistent and accurate with counting, and you aren’t gaining at the rate you want to….. add more calories and see how you respond.

    Nothing extreme, just I’m eating my meals and my weight has stayed the same and I am using the macros/Cals from the diet planner on here. If anything going over more times than often and still staying the same. So it was more to do with tweaking meals, do I up my carbs even more still? Protein is fine, I’m on p280g c400-450gc and F70g , hitting that most days and going over carbs a lot more with my PWO with rice base cereal/protein.
    Plus I was on week 4 of the Terrance/Joe program and after week 4 it took me back to week one!
    I heard that they were bringing more nutrition information out in jan as well on the app. Is that right?
