    Do you guys think that it's possible to get big and cut without tracking your diet/intake numbers so exactly? I mean, I eat good foods and I keep track of my protein..but I'm definitely not as meticulous as most of the people here. Am I being stupid? It just seems like a lot of work, tracking your calories and all that to such an extent. I have a lot of stuff going on in my life right now.

    Also, I'm totally willing to accept that I won't get optimal results if I don't do this. I'm just wondering if by not doing it, I'm wasting my time in the gym. I just started lifting about 3 weeks ago.

    if you know you're getting enough cals to grow and your protein is sufficient with decent foods, then don't worry about it. it really isn't that big of a deal unless you're cutting when you need to keep a caloric deficit

    in your first few months, pretty much anything you do is going to result in gains. Unfortunately that doesn't last.

    When bulking there's not really a need as long as you know you're getting enough. When cutting, it's good to make sure you stay 500cals below maintenance.
