Re: Calorie recommendations
Yes that's a good baseline number of calories to start from.
Try that for a 1-2 weeks,and see how you get on.if you don't gain anything,then bump the calories up by another 250.keep doing this until you are gaining at a nice steady rate,without punting on too much fat.
Keep an eye on your waistline,and use the mirror as your guide.
If you find that you are putting on weight too quickly.adjust calories downwards by 250.
It's all trial and error to start with.
Make sure you eat 1-1½g protein per lb of bodyweight.
Eat good wholesome food,and make sure you eat enough good fats to help with testosterone levels.
Keep an eye on your carbs.eat enough of them to help with growth and recovery,but not so much that you get fat.
