    I think you've made an error somewhere here.

    What have been your results so far? I would think that ~2000 calories would be a little low for someone your weight.

    Edit:
    Ok.. Fixed, It's actually 262gC on workout days, not 360 (where'd that come from?!)

    No error, based on labels, that is the total calories.. The gym day and non gym day meals are the same amount of calories (200), so the calorie count is the same on all days.. The only thing that is different is the macro breakdown.

    It's tough to say after only 3 weeks, I try not to weight myself too often, plus the diet has evolved from start to now.. I started off at around 195. This morning I was 191.. But before I started I'm SURE I was bloated as hell with water, and I don't remember what time of day I weighed.. This morning I weighed on an empty stomach right after waking up.. That's an unreliable 4lbs..

    Strength has been increasing, but again, I'm sure that's due to CNS adaptation and not added muscle. I was fairly strong before I stopped the gym for a while, so I assume for the next month or so my strength increases will have less to do with diet and more to do with "muscle memory" and adaptation..

    I think I'd increase your Calories on training days and decrease your Calories on non training days to make up the difference.

    Probably need to try and see. You could do more carbs on training days and less on non training days or something like that,
