I'm supposed to consume 1800 cals daily to BULK, does this sound right to you?
OK so as many of you know I'm 5'7" 105lbs guy and I'm trying to BULK (of course). I have checked many online calculators and asked a few supposed experts and apparently I'm supposed to consume my body weight x 18 to bulk up. At my weight that comes out to around 1800 cals... this seems really low to me.
everyone tells me I need to eat 3K-4K cals per day but then these calculators are telling me I need 1800 ONLY. Some people are telling me if I eat anymore than that I will gain lots of fat. Who is in the wrong here? I originally made a 3K cal diet that I really like but now im now sure if I should use it or cut back my cals to 1800 max.
What do you guys think? TIA
(i'll post my diet I made earlier in a min)
