Should I increase the amount of food on training days, and not so much on rest days?

Not sure what the question is, so I'll fire away . . . Personally, I just need an energy source, high fat or high carb. doesn't really matter to me, but not both, and my w/o's are fine.

Caloric variation is a personal choice, but to increase on training days would seem to have merit, the needs for this day are greater than that which is required on other days.

Personally, I eat approximately the same amount/type of food each day. However, I will throw my metab. a curve (real high/low) every once an awhile just to keep it confused.

hmm, so I should increase the carbs on training days, then Il ad 6-8 slices of bread?

BCC, what do you do?

By light milk do you mean skim? If so, then I see virtually no fat in your diet, unless it's in your protein shakes. If you eliminate fat, your test levels will drop and get screwed up. If buy light milk you mean 1% or 2% then you'll be getting fat into your diet. But the fat in milk is mostly saturated, so that would not be a healthy choice either.

yea, but saturated is pretty good for test levels :)

It is? Unsaturated fats also kick up your test levels though, don't they?

When I cut virtually all fat from my diet I did gain some strength for about a week, after than my size and strength plummetted. And now I am small, and now I wished I had kept the fat up in my diet. I have now added flax back into my diet, I think some of my mass is comiing back.
