He's got the fear in him about embracing his inner man-bear-pig :)

[QUOTE=Cain Papettas;1055537]Yo george! i tried it these past 2 weeks! 8/16 with about 2700 cals, i have found myself really hungry right before i eat and what ever i eat never seems enough!! i thought i would give it a try on my resting phase and yeah all i have been doing is squeezing what i normally eat and then some into 8 hours instead of 12 give or take![/QUOTE]

I think we went through the calculations at some point, but here's the calculator again:

You should be eating 2800 - 3300, 3300 if you are really ecto, 2800 if you are really endo (which you are not). At the very least, you should average 3000 a day. If you really fear fat gain, for whatever weird psychological reason, put a greater increase on your lifting days, and slightly less on the non-workout days, so maybe 3500 on workout days, 2700 on non-workout days. Either way, eat more.

Agreed. It's almost to the point of attention whoring.

You can only squeeze so much food into an 8 hour window before your stomach bursts. If you're someone who badly needs to gain weight, why would you limit yourself in that way?

Manbearpig, what's your daily calorie intake? Breakfast game is pretty good, respect.

I strive for at least 3000 a day. I loose weight if I eat less and do any lifting or cariovascular taining.

Additionally I have backed off to that amount since school has been busy and my lifting has dropped in frequency. I was chugging along to the tune of about 4-4.5k cals a day for awhile during smolov and the start of madcow

I am gaining fat just by looking at that.

Re: Breakfast is the best meal of the day!
 
I have gained a little fat but I am not as anal about keeping low BF like many on the board. as long as I am around 10-15% I really don't care. Right now I am more 15%ish and when I got serious I was more 10-ish. I care more about attaining beastness and a healthy body fat than da abz. I am married and pretty secure so i try to build my training and diet around strength performance and things like running and high intensity cardio from doing heavy bag are for general health and preparedness and nothing else.
