    Someone maybe clarify me this?

    Lets say this one person wants to bulk, hes eating 2500 calories a day, but he has two options:

    a) He eats 150g of protein, 90g of fats, 272g of carbs

    b) He eats 150g of protein, 155g of fats, 100g of carbs

    His body changes are gonna be the same? , i mean, both options are still 2500 and are meeting his minimum of protein and fats, so, it doesnt make a difference?

    In terms of body-composition, same outcome.
    The power of carbs compels me!

    Yes, the long term, final outcome will be the same as fats and carbs are mainly energy sources but short term water weight/look may vary between A and B

    Although I doubt it will be very noticeable...

    Might look a little fuller on the high-carb diet, but the overall outcome would be the same

    Person b is eating 2400 calories/day so his bulk will be slower.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.

    Nice catch. I usually ALWAYS double-check people's math on here because it's almost always off.

    Hell, the other day someone said they were eating 2900 calories, when they were eating almost 4k.
