Less then average or more.

Lets say on lift days you eat 4500. How much should I should for on my rest days?

I'm on bulk.

Depends if your on a bulk or cut. If your on a bulk i would just eat the same amount. If on a cut, i guess you could cut down the cals a bit, just to "save" some since you aren't working out, but eitehr way i would keep it close to the same.

Eat at least the same, if not more. You don't grow in the gym, you grow from eating and resting.

I never count calories. When I was trying to lean down I just ate as much food as possible and bicycled and weighlifted all the time.

well most of us have to count calories because we don't have the metabolism to just eat whatever and exercise to lose weight. Sooner or later the way you do it is not going to work and our way of counting cals and monitoring diet will still work.

It used to be 4000+ cals at the end of my bulk, now it's less than 1000 cals in the middle of my cut :-(

I tend to eat more. I find that when I'm suffering some DOMS, nothing makes me feel better than food. I don't know why it is, but it is.

you're eating less than 1000 cals a day?

Seriously, that can't be healthy... Are you doing an all shake diet? Are you sane?

On a PSMF or UD2.0 low cal days, sub 1k cals is perfectly acceptable

My apologies. I forgot to add that I'm doing a form of PSMF

I eat roughly the same on my off days as I do when I'm lifting. My meals are smaller and more frequent if anything.

I TRY to eat the same... But with that hour or two that it takes to get ready, to actually workout, clean up afterwards empty I find I end up snacking more and my calories are usually up. I just get bored when I'm not working out I guess

When I was eating anything that I could find that was healthy I was bicycling over 2 hours each night.

rest days I tend to eat about 1,000 calories more than lifting days... mainly because I am just around the house and I have the mentality .... and the addiction... that if I see food, I eat it.
