ok, so i dont know how to start a poll here, but on average, about how many calories do you consume a day?

i do weightlifting, and today i had about 2900 calories, the thot running through my head was..."dood, you almost ate a frickin pound of fat"
is this bad for weightlifting or good?

Most of what you eat is burned off during the day... About 1500-200 are burned from doing absolutely NOTHING. 2900 calories is fine if you're working out, I believe most bulkers have much more than that.

Yeah, 2900 might be isocaloric for all you know, if you don't know what your maintenance calories are. If thats the case, you could eat 2900/cals a day every day and not gain a pound a year.

When i'm bulking i need around 5000 cals +, on a cut at the moment, pulling about 2200-2400 maint is about 2600-3000.
