    Energy needs adapting to food intake?

    Hey guys, quick question. I completely understand IIFYM, have read the stickies (even refer people to them), and get cutting/bulking.

    However, when I came off my last cut at about 2200 calories, I wasn't all that hungry that often, and my weight was maintaining at the 2200 I had been cutting at. I have since added 100 calories every ~10 days and am sitting at around 2700 calories a day, with minimum of 65g fat and I end up with about 225-250g of protein a day just because I like meat (no homo) and beans, with the rest coming from carbs. And im always hungry as hell now with my 500 more calories.

    every time i have bumped my calories up, my weight really hasn't increased, at all. I know you need a surplus and good lifting routine, and everyone at the gym is amazed with my routine and effort so i more or less know it's the calories.

    So what i would like to know is, is it possible that my metabolism was just so down from the cut, that every time i bump my intake, my metabolism just speeds up with is trying to get back to "normal"?

    by the way, im 6'1, 18, about 10% BF, and lift 7 times a week (i know, its bad, but i NEED a hobby like lifting to keep me out of trouble) with a upper tier moderate experience routine.


    *im probably going to start hitting the ice cream and PB harder.

    Yeah so your body has transitioned from cutting to bulking so better overall metabolism, hormones in check, well-being, etc..

    You need to hit at least 3,000cals per day and likely more. Especially considering the training you have outlined, age, and weight.

    thank you very much. B&Js in the shakes from now on!

    3000 for maintenance? Or for the 7.5-10% surplus? Lifting is literally my only physical activity, so it's not like im doing anything physical the rest of the day.

    Right on!

    If you are currently sitting at ~2700cals with minimal weight increase bump it to 3000 cals. Still not gaining at ~3,000cals then increase cals in 5-10% weekly increments. Eventually you will gain at a decent rate.

    Eat and train your ass off = PROFIT.
