To what extent does eating 2700 calories a day over eating any random amount between 1000 and 3000 affect strength?
For example: I started lifting weights around a year ago now, I generally tend to eat less then usual on training days (some milk and a sandwich or two), and pig out on rest days (four, three-course meals).
I've been eating random amounts of food every day since forever, never bothered to get weights and calculate each individual meal's calorie total.
From what I've read, my lack of impressive size gains can be partly attributed to this fact.
However: I've gone from lifting 10kg - 24kg dumbells in this time, and it doesn't seem like my strength gains are slowing down.
Anyone with some solid knowledge or links to clinical trials, your input is much appreciated. :3
