2. Purchase a food scale
For beginners, it’s pretty tricky when trying to estimate the macronutrients and calories of your meals. Buying a digital food scale will help take the guesswork out of the equation and will give you exact numbers of the weight of your food. The kitchen scale pictured above is the exact same one that me and Pat use.
I used to eat two huge meals a day thinking that it would be enough, but when I added them up, they only amounted to around 2500 calories. Just because you eat “a lot” in one sitting doesn’t mean that you’re in a caloric surplus. Also, knowing how much you’re eating in your bulking phase will help you transition into a cutting phase or recomposition phase.
