    ...are you eating the same amount on off days as you do on workout days?

    I more or less eat eveything in sight thats fairly clean whenever possible. I cut back if I haven't lifted in 3 days, which is very rare.

    Would it make more sense to eat more the day after workout days?

    my gf distracts me at times. So I usually have 3-4 very large meals as apposed to 6 meals a day.

    I don't count calories.

    Actually I would eat more on workout days than off days. I would not have a pre-workout meal and a post-workout shake instead both of those would be 1 meal on off days.

    same here, with the addition of my PWO shake. Don't take that on rest days...

    So that's another two scoops of whey, with 50g of Dextrose/Maltodextrin...

    IMO, If you're bulking...you should be eating 24/7. Wheather you worked out that day or not....just eat. I have trouble getting the calories I need even if I eat every 30 minutes :(

    not everyone has trouble eating. my biggest problem when bulking is overdoing it, which leads to excess fat gain. I can easily eat 8000cals+ per day.
