I was looking at some threads a while ago and came upon a thread that Shad replied to which is here: Caloritic Intake Thread (http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=53490)
Now alittle bit about me. I am 6'2.5" and weigh 165 and am a ectomorp..skinny with a stupid metabolism. According to this I should be consuming about 2600 Calories A day. If I am looking at putting on roughly 1.5 Pounds a week I should be shooting for upwards of 3200-3500 calories a day?

I just started WBB routine 1.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.

If you have a really fast metabolism and want to put on 1.5lbs/week I'd suggest something more like 25 cals/lb bodyweight, so approximately 4100 calories/day.

Well I am going to test myself and see if it is as fast as I make it out to be. 4100 Calories a day...wow lol that is alot of the way I eat :P but I will give it a go
