alrite so i calculated my BMR = 1726.86, and i calculated my AMR = 2417.604
so, that means i have to eat more than 2417.604 calories a day to gain weight? and if so, how much more calories should i exceed my AMR by daily? thanx for any help.

exceed the amr by 500 cals a day and you should gain ~1lbs week

alrite nice thanx! so, should the gain of 1 pound a week be fat or muscle? i know im guaranteed to put on fat, but i just hope i dont have to put on like 10 pounds of fat for a few measly pounds of muscle. is this macronutrient ratio good, 28% fat, 32% protein, 40% carbs? sorry about all the questions, i just really wanna get this diet thing down. thanks again to anyone that reads this post
