View Full Version : Calorie Intake on Off Days

01-19-2003, 09:32 AM
Im currently bulking, and I was wondering if i should be eating the same amount of calories every day, regardless of if its a training day or not. Should i be eating less carbs on non-training days since im not using as much energy?

You'll need the calories for recovery purposes, so i'd say yeah keep them the same.

The only difference may be that you won't be taking any post w/o shake - which may be the difference of 200-400kcals or so. Don't drop them any further down than this though.

another good way is to cycle your calories. You can read about it http://www.massmonsters.com/6/ubb.x?a=tpc&s=9506025911&f=5636038281&m=4586038281

File Rain,
do what the C_D said. Restrict you carb intake by 50-100 grams.

I am new in this web site so forgive me if I am doing something wrong.

I have been lifting weights seriously for 1 year and I have seen some changes however I am very confused about the protein intake.

I have hear that we should consume 1 g to 1,5 g per body weight. Is this the overall weight with the fat or just the muscle weight, which makes more sence to me since is the muscle that will require the protein to grow.

I am 6,3 and weight 207 lb with 19%.

I need some clarification here.

Thank you
