Merry christmas eberybody ;)

Here is my question:


Ok I am bulking and ate 800 cals worth of food for my breakfast at 6am, and then I was bored so I decided I would take a 1 hour nap. However, that 1 hour nap turned into an 8 hour nap, damn! Ok what i wanted to know was if the 800 cals I ate earlier is still in my system or do I have to eat those again? Thanks

well you ate it, it didnt just vanish.... of course it goes towards your calorie intake. Otherwise I would just eat and sleep and everything would be all fine and dandy.

Unless you have some form of magic that makes your body make food disappear w/o digesting it, then I'd say it counts.

i understand your question, and im not sure. Look at the question in this form; say you eat your cals. for the day, then you sleep, the next day (typically 8 hours after) you would start over for the new day. I dont think the body has a perception of nightime cal. or daytime, or breakfest or lunch, so im not sure.

It goes in your mouth and you swallow, it counts...

It counts, but i think more to the point you gotta ask yourself how many did you miss out on through having a '2nd' sleep? 8hrs = 3 - 4 meals yes?

So does that mean if i come home at 3am and have a big greasy feast after a night of drinking, those calories dont count when i wake up??

Cos really, that'd be great! :thumbup: ;)

Yehh they count, booze with its empty calories, lowering of Testosterone and stopping protien synthesis + the "big greasy feast" would probably put your progress back quite a bit i'd think :rolleyes:

oh, ad i got a question about protein from nuts, is it as good as meat? cuz i got thes epumpkin seeds and they got 74 grams of protein per cup! peanuts have half that... (37)... so pumpkin seeds seem like a wicked natural way to pack in calories

If it didn't count then you'd have a sea of fat people rushing to Wendy's late night window to eat everything on the left side of the menu. Then they could sleep for 8 hours, wake up in the morning, and never gain a pound.

It you slept during the day it just means your daily maintenance of calories is going to be a little lower than if you were up and active during that time.
