    When you're bulking it's higher, when you're cutting it's lower. You're welcome.

    I dont understand the question. Obviously you know the difference between the two and that bulking means more than maintenance cals and cutting is below maintenance.


    What the hell are you asking?

    wtf


    What might be a bulking amount of cals for one person might be a cutting amount of cals for another. Nobody can sit there and say "EVERYONE BULKS AT 3500K CALS!" . It's an individual specific thing. You have to try out different combos and see what works best for you at a given weight.

    I think what you're after is bulk=start at 500 above maint cut=start at 500 below

    Maintenance cals can vary but you could start at around 15xLBM
