Hello, let me post my current stats first, then get to the questions...
Currently starting wk2 of a mdrol cycle.
My daily maintenance calorie use is about 2400. I've been intaking about 1,000 over maintenance for the past week, and am currently having trouble keeping that up since my appetite has been going down. Also, I would like to keep my leg muscle growth to a minimum, but would like everything else to increase as much as possible. Reason being that my legs are rather strong in comparison to upper body. I can squat 130kg for my last set of a 5x5. Although not spectacular, it's sure a lot better than my 77.5kg bench IMO.
So the question is that, will a diet that's ~500-800 above maintenance on leg and off days, and ~1500+ above maintenance on all other days be practical for my goals? I've heard that many people gain about 15lbs while on an mdrol cycle, and that calculates to an average of 2500 above maintenance per day for a 3wk cycle... that is almost impossible for me since I'm already using 3-4 shakes per day to reach my current caloric intake.
Maybe the kick in the 2nd week of mdrol will skyrocket my appetite? But I haven't felt that "kick" just yet... It would be wasy to scarf down some fast food, but that's not what I want to do... sticking with healthy meals and a 40/30/30 carb/protein/fat split. Should I change up the nutrition intake proportions to have more carbs and protein? I know MDrol loves carbs, but 450g~ of carbs seems like a ton already.
