Hi:

I read the diet article on the wbb web page and I found it quite interesting. However I have a few questions.

a) How acurate are the BMR & AMR formulas on calculating caloric needs?? (Doing the math my BMR = 1788.74 & AMR = 2861.984)

b) In order to construct a diet, the article uses a "ratio of 40% protein, 40% carbohydrates, and 20% fat" for the sake of simplicity. If I wanna bulk up, what is the proper ratio I should use?

c) When all the math is done, should I distribute all of my 5-6 meals equally through the day or should I eat more/less protein, carbs & fat before/after workout and on offdays?

d) Overall, can I make a decent and effective diet if I follow these procedure in order to gain some mass?

Any coments or suggestions on dieting will be appreciated
