I am currently bulking. According the research I have done over time, my lean body mass (LBM) is ~175 lbs and my minimum daily suggested intake of carbs is double that in grams, 350g. I am having a heck of a time consuming 350g/day of complex carbs. Usually, the most I am able to choke down is roughly 300-320g. 1. Should I even count "simple" carbs (ex. lactose, fructose, etc)? I don't consume much simple carbs. 2. If so, can I make up the rest of the carb count with simple carbs (300g complex, 50g simple) and still get good bulking results? 3. *OR* can I simply continue to eat 300g carbs and make up the calorie difference with protein or fat? Carbs have always been a bitch form me to consume. Even after over a year it is still very hard for me to hit my suggested complex carb mark. I also get horrid gas from carbs and it hasn't gotten any better, even after a year or more. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
