I'm a complete noob, and I've been reading tons of threads and so much of this stuff mixes me up. In the most dumbest words and easiest way to understand something, please fill me in on these 2 things.

A) If I'm trying to gain weight/muscle? How should my nutrition look?
B) If I'm trying to get ripped and tone the muscle I gained, what should my nutrition look like?

Thanks,
Tyler

A) Calorie surplus with protein intake = 1 g/lb target bodyweight
B) Calorie deficit with protein intake = 1 g/lb target bodyweight

I did read it before I posted this. So 1 g/lb target bodyweight ( is this of my bodyweight? ) This is where I'm getting confused in this equation. Even called my wife in here to read the equation. I'm really confused lol.

Depends on how fat you currently are, if your obese, you can get away w/ 1g per lean body mass.

Do google small terms ^

in that equation, the word "target" is the bodyweight that you realistically will obtain in 3-6 months. So, if your goal is to be 10 pounds heavier or lighter, that is how it factors in. As you can see, it is going to be pretty close to your current bodyweight. Basically you eat the same foods, just different quantities.
