    depends on how heavily muscled you are, whether youre cutting bulking, gear use etc.

    What makes you think that mate?

    Stick your diet up and your stats.

    im not seeing good gains at the moment mate whilst on cycle and am therefore upping my calories but im thinking it may not just be that and i may need more protein?

    dont know carb totals mate but it should be high,i dont weigh chicken ,there large chiken breast.that is just a sample and it differs from day to day ie oily fish,tuna etc. i can try and work the carbs out but tbh all i normally count is cals and protein as its a full time job just counting that

    Then why even go on the gear if youre not wiling to put in the time and effort to make sure your diet is sorted first? Buy fitday insert your food choices into it and use it as a counting tool. make up your meal plans in advance for the week and just prepare them and eat dont worry about doing it on a daily basis do it once a week

    i didnt post for an attitude mate?so whats the big problem with my diet ?the only problem i can see is lack of omega 3 as you said ??it compares very similar to most bulking meal plans you will see.and that remark about time and effort?my whole life is dedicated to eating and training

    im not giving you any attitude at all, you asked a question i answered it. Your general question was how much protein was needed which is only 1 piece of the puzzle, carbs and healthy fats fit the other pieces yet you simply say you havent worked these other ratios out as it may be too much hard work. I just dont understand why youre going to go on gear when you should know the basics about nutrition and correct ratios for your own needs beforehand. i was only making an observation

    i was only asking how much OTHER people consume out of curiosity to see how it compared to me,i dont count carbs not because i cant be bothered as you say but because i dont think its of much concern unless trying to lose weight and im pretty certain im getting enough,ive been gaining very well until the last month and have gained 28lbs in 9months,ive been gaining excellent on 4000 cals until now and have just upped it to 4500 in the last week so hopefully the gains will start again.il take on board what youve said and work out my carb needs and include more o3s.i know the reccomendation is between 1.5-2 gms per lb of bodyweight so its just a matter of experimentation in my eyes!

    Would depend on the amounts of macros in the diet to be honest.

    If i have more carbs then the protein and fats are lowered.

    mate, u dont judge advise on the shape somebody is in, but on their knowledge and how much sense their comments make. i opener is a well respected member with a much better diet than yours. i dont no why u think u have the right to comment on his advice when it is perfectly sound.

    bit of a dig actually there, to which i dont appreciate really. Im still cutting at the moment and my success is down from my knowledge of applied nutrition and training tactics. My knowledge of gear is lacking as im not a user and have no desire to find out about it. i simple advised you on your diet choices and ratios and ultimately you would have to decide how these ratios would fit into your gear use. I dont plan to be a mass mountain mate when im done cutting im going on a bulk cycle and plan to be a heavyweight MMA fighter as speed, stamina, agility and strength in symbiotic measures float my boat more than just being muscle bound. i just have not been training as long you have thats about it.

    In light if your comments i hope you get good results from what youre doing mate as i am not going to offer any more advice to you on the matter

    What other people do is of no relevance whatsoever as everyone is different, has different metabolisms, different activities and so on.

    for help with this you need to post the portion sizes mate

    you really should have this sorted before you started using 750mg test EW

    how many cycles have you done dean ?
