Re: Eating for strength Vs Eating for size

To answer you with a question what type of size are you looking for?

Both gaining strength and size require a caloric surplus for a trained individual.

Thanks to the novice effect though an untrained individual on the other hand could certainly lose body fat, and gain strength without a caloric surplus.

For strength without concern for what type of size your putting on quantity is probably more important than quality. Looking into powerlifters and cramming.

For gaining lean body mass quality and quantity are important. You might want to look into bodybuilding nutrition on this side.

I'm sure everything I just wrote could be torn apart. Best always to do your own research and arrive at your own personal conclusions.
