View Full Version : Cals?

04-24-2008, 06:03 PM
I'm just starting to seriously work out (BULKING), and I'm taking to the nutrition thing too. I'm currently 5'7'' and 112 lbs (yeah, small). How many calories should I be shooting for each day? So far, today, I've taken in 2.8k, aiming for about 3500. Is this a good goal?

Holy christ, you weigh less than me. Then again.. I'm 3 inches taller than you.

Haha, yeah, I'm small.

OT, any advice from anyone?

Just eat as much as you possibly can. Track your calories for a week or two to see if you are putting on weight. If not add 500 calories and so on.

eat EVERYTHING. Your target should be whatever you can stomach + 1000.

yea man eat as much as possible, i'd say 3500 is a good goal to start w/...track those calories for a week and see if ur gaining weight off of 3500 calories...

If you dont know about fitday, try using that...it makes it 10x easier to track ur calories for the day/week.

Yeah, I'm using fitday, and yesterday I put in about 3.6-3.8k calories, and retained 2 of the 3 pounds I gained. I'm naturally a light eater, so I've been stuffing my face as much as I can, making sure I'm always full.
