Like many serious trainers, Joel Davies is deep into bulking season at this time of year. For those who don’t know, bulking is when you consume surplus calories so you can increase body fat and muscle mass.

But when you’re eating that much, it’s easy to get sick of the same food every day. Luckily, Joel is in the mood for sharing. He’s recorded a video covering what he typically eats in a day when bulking. It includes plenty of protein, calories, and flavour. Let’s check it out.

Meal one

Keeping it classic for breakfast, Joel kickstarts his protein intake for the day by filling up on bacon, eggs, and toast.

  • 3 rashers bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices white toast
  • 2 electrolyte tablets
  • 1 Vitamin D3

Meal two

Joel’s bulking, so there’s plenty of room — and need — for second breakfast before his workout. He goes for some protein oats.

  • 75g oats
  • 300ml milk
  • Handful strawberries
  • 50g Clear Whey
Calories Protein Carbs Fat

With what feels like a throwback to classic playground snacks, Joel opts for a pre-workout cereal bar to fuel up while on the way to the gym.

Cereal. The easiest of meals. Post-workout, Joel fills his body with as much cereal as he can fit in the bowl, and tops it off with 50g of protein.
