View Full Version : Do you need to eat less on a non-workout day?

Tried searching, but was difficult with that many keywords. Couldn't find an answer.

My weightlifting day I burn alot more calories then on my off day. Should I eat less on offday to offset that? or just eat the same on both on and off days?

The other questions I had about my diet have all been answered through searching. Thanks guys!

Bulking = yea eat the same
Cutting = Eat slightly less, limit carb intake

Especially nice of him, as he only has 1 hand to type with!

He's using his foot for the other side of the keyboard.

Eat more on days off when bulking, then eat even more on training days, its a very fun cycle

im definately more on a cut then a bulk, because my bodyfat is obscene

ViciousBish, if you're new to this scene you should just worry about creating a good nutrition cycle, and once you've achieved your goal then make changes. Worrying about eating more on lifting days compared to non, will soon be something you should take into account. Just don't take my word for it completely, because I'm new here to.

well my main concern is that im eating 2500 a day and on my workout I burn an extra 1000 calories. putting me in a 1500 calorie deficit on my workout day instead of the normal 500 on my offday.

How much less should we consume on off days anyways?

Usually works well to just drop some carbs off on rest days.
