View Full Version : Calorie Intake

Currently, I am 6'5 185. My goal is to add 25lbs of muscle and get somewhere around 200-210. I have read and understand many articles about what to eat (% calories from protein, carbs, fat) and that to maintain body weight, you should eat 15x your body weight in calories per day. I just started lifting using a WBB 1 style workout a couple weeks ago. My question is, how many calories do you recommend intaking per day to gradually increase my weight to my goal? I hope to get to this weight by 08/30/2006 (a week before college starts back up again). Is this even possible? Also, I must take into factor that I have a couple of diagnosed stomach problems so it would probaly not be a good idea for me to eat 4000 calories per day.

I use a 25x my bodyweight formula.

Where did you get something as low as 15?

I'd say up your calories. You can do it easily by adding high-calorie protein drinks with every meal. You can easily mix/blend up a shake as much as 1,000 calories! Ask BRICKT!!!!

*I just looked at your fitday. You want to be eating more calories than you're burning.
