    ok say your maintenence cals are 2000/day and you are bulking and working out burning say 500 extra cals a day, should one eat 2500 cals, or like 200 cals more than that as to gain minimal fat while gaining muscle, or should you add even more? basically how many cals/day over maintenence would be generally accepted as the amount of calories you need to make the most gains?
