Hi all,

I'm wondering if you all count calories and grams of fat, protein and carbs to achieve max results? I'm 190 lbs...how many calories should I consume in a day and how much protein, carbs, fat, etc must I consume in a day if I want to pack on muscle, mass and size? What would I have to consume if I want to get ripped/cut without losing muscle mass?

Thanks much

For a bulk, consume 20-22 calories per pound of bodyweight. So take in 3800-4180 calories a day. Shoot for 1-1.5 g protein per pound of body weight and about 2g carbs per pound. If you need help managing your diet, www.fitday.com is a great site.
