Yo all

Just a quick en, 18cals per LB of body weight is the norm when doing a bulk but shouldnt this realy be 18 cals per LB of LBM, since the rest is just fat?

Just a thought

any suggestions would be great

There is no norm. Start tracking your calories on www.fitday.com then whatever your eating normally for a week, bump it by 500 cals a day. If you are still not gaining weight bump it again.

I would sugget to bump up cals by 20%.And if you are real "hard gainer" then 25%.
