    food intake perday

    i weight about 160 pounds some of you may have seen my prior post about regaining size. being that summers cumin soon i'm obvoustly tryin to get bigger and cut all fat. as of this week i'v cut back to about 2200 calories a day witch i no isnt enough but i'm eatting 250 grams of quality protien and i'm not sure on the exact amount but allot of carbs (i never eat white eather). i eat about every 2 hours, do you think this is enough to still gain size? or should i worry about size now losing fat later?

    You can't do both at the same time.

    Well ok, you can, but you have to have you diet and training DIALED in and I get the feeling you don't. Also, that way is much slower, in the time frame you're talking about you might not notice any real difference.

    Either put on muscle, or lose fat. One or the other.

    Try more like 3200 calories. 2200 is probably barely enough to maintain.

    How can you make a statement like that? If his maintenance was 2500 calories then he'd just get fat with your advice.

    What he needs to do first, is figure out his maintenance calories (or if he knows, post them...) then decide what his goal is; to lose weight or gain weight.

    Well, if his maintenance was 2500 a day he would still be gaining less than 1.5 lbs a weeks, and I would hardly call that "getting fat."

    That being said, I agree with finding your maintenance as a starting point.

    You need to figure that out.

    Your maintenance calories is the amount of calories you need to stay at the same weight.

    Track your diet for a couple weeks. Figure out EXACTLY how many calories you are getting each day. If your weight goes up (morning weight after you pee) then you're above your maintenance calories, down then you are below.
