    Diet on off days

    I've started trying to do a clean bulk. My maint is 2500 cal so i'm eating 3000 per day. I go to the gym 4 days/week. The other days im pretty much in front of a computer all day on my butt. Should I stick to 2500 on my off days or keep doing the 3000? Im 153lbs/34 yrs old/5'8". I just started using Here is my journal. Please let me know if this is looking right for a clean bulk.

    Thanks! I'm glad I found this site. Cleared up alot of questions I've had over the last couple years of working out.

    You heal/repair/build muscle while resting, so yes you need to tools to do that on your off days. Food is what muscles are made of, so eat.

    yep, same on off days as on days, because the off days is when you're actually growing bigger.

    only time it might vary is if you're on a cutting phase and doing some sort of carb cycling to avoid that 'low carb' feeling while still limiting carbs for best fat burning.
