View Full Version : Taking a week off, how much to eat?
12-11-2006, 10:55 AM
Ive decided to take a week off not only because of exams, but because I think my body could use it.
Now, right now im bulking. Do I lower my calorie intake over this week or is my body still making muscle even if I havent worked out in several days?

Dunno, how bout this, if you're eating ... totally off the top of my head... 150% of your maintenance on a normal basis...
1st day: 150%
2nd day: 140%
3rd day: 120%
4th day: 100%
and then so forth until you start working out again

If it were me, I would just eat as much as I normally would on an off day

eat the same as you would if you were still training.

because muscle repair can still happen a few days after your workout. you eat the same on an off day as you would on a gym day right? why make this any differnt.
