Pretty basic question. Instead of saying that I am going to eat X number of calories per day, does it work just as well to say X number of calories per week?
1-2 days on the weekend are shot for me, since I like to go out drinking with friends (sometimes this involves eating extra too). Is it alright to compensate for this by having fewer calories on the other 5-6 days?
For example, if my goal calories are 2200 per day (15,400 per week). Will:
Eating 1800 calories five days a week and 3200 calories two days a week, have the same/similar results as eating 2200 calories seven days a week?
I suppose the one argument could be that I'm eating less calories on lifting days, so that could affect my workouts.
