    i eat every 2.5-3 hours, like many of you do, to keep my metabolism high, but at the end of the day, are the daily marcos more important or keeping the meals stacked the way they are (e.g. if i over eat at some point in the day and i've reached my caloric goals, do i cut back the eating or continue on schedule) And also, which option would be more advantageous for what goals

    are you serious? :ugh2:

    march, your daily overall calorie count/macros are going to be more important than keeping your schedule

    Yes I'm serious. The kid is like 145lbs. he needs to worry about eating not what his damn ratio is. Obviously don't go out and eat nothing but fast food, but worrying about that NOW is going to set him up for failure.

    ummm 184 as of this morn. i don't have problems gaining weight, being a recent fatty, and i've figured out how to drop weight, hence my question of which is more important.

    I respect you but I think that is bad advice. I don't see a point in doing things not smart as possible. Not only does it form good habits but he'll reach his goals quicker.

    Yeah, he needs to eat. But there is no point in just saying "fuck it, I'll eat whatever I want" instead of sitting down and determining exactly what his calories/macros should be to reach whatever goals he has.

    that is 178. i don't know why i have such low credibility... i have a wide frame, worked down from 25% bf to sub 10, then gained 15 lbs since then. maybe i just don't look that big in photos or whatever, but i'm pretty solidly built.

    If some one doesn't have the experience tracking their food intake effectively then adding complexity to it is not the answer.

    All its going to do is put up too much complexity at once. He should get his calorie intake down first. Then worry about adjusting it to the right macros.

    Take for instance learning a new sport. You don't learn everything all at once. You learn things one at a time. Hockey for instance. You don't learn how to handle a puck first thing. You learn how to skate first. Then hold a stick. Then handle a puck. If you try and do the most complex thing first you're just going to get frustrated.

    While I agree, given his pretty remarkable transformation I don't think you are giving him enough credit. He might be relatively new to all of this, but he has already accomplished a lot and that doesn't happen by accident.

    Am I wrong though? You and DH are at each other's throats and this kid thinks I'm patronizing him. Damn.
