anyone else eat this much?
I have no idea if I just eat this much from being 18 and young but its ungodly. I'm consuming 4000 cal a day at the least most of the time its not enough, for my hunger. Like I eat a whole pot of pasta four times a day I eat 2 lbs of chicken a day which is 6 chciken breast I eat a whole dozen of egg whites a day lots of fruit and vegtibles with and between meals. Like does anyone else eat this much? Not to mention I have shakes with my meals and I also eat a lot of tunafish either blend it into my shakes or add it into pasta. Try not to eat too much because of the potential hazard. Back to the question anyone else eat this much? And plus I still wake up in the middle of the night starving. But at least this makes it easy to bulk up and gain weight and thank god I'm a cook at a resturaunt where I eat for free or id always be broke lol.
So any advice questions comments or anyone else wanting to say how much they eat post away I'm curious to know.
Thannk for reading and posting yall

I bulk at 4500, cut at 3500, maintainence at 4000.
But i have a huuuuge variety of food, so I never get bored. 6 Chicken breasts is insane. I have one per day usually with a steak and salad.

Luckkyy dudes.! Wish I had an appetite that fast. You must burn like crazyy. I love to eat but with my body type I tend to gain fat really easy even on a high calorie bulk so I have to be very causes on how high I put my cals. #feelsbadman lol

As long as I keep my carbs under 300g I usually can handle around 4k without gaining weight. I actually losing weight now at that level. (90kgs currently, 198)

I could push it up too 5000kcals/day and still keep myself lean but i literally cannot down that much food just yet. I usually have 3 big meals 1000kcals approx each (meat, vege, etc.) and like 3 small meals (500kcals each approx, which is when i eat almonds, olive oils, liquid meals etc.).

have you actually counted your macro's ? cause this all sounds rediculous, i would in a restraunt and are constantly eating along with being a natural bodybuilder, but 7000 seems unreal.

Back to your question.
Seems like you eat a lot
I'm like you. I can eat all the time for post workout today I ate 3 lbs of chili no problems. I can eat more but I'm recomping now.
As long as your hitting your caloric needs who cares how much you eat

Every morning at 730am, 5 pieces of toast, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 3 eggs, however much bacon we have left, glass of high protein milk and a fish oil capsule. Love it. Then after that just whatever I can find that fits in with my macros

I eat about 3500-4000 a day to maintain my weight of 210. Lots of beef, potatoes, rice, eggs, chicken, veggies, fruit, pizza
07-13-2012, 09:20 AM
As an example, here's what I ate yesterday:
1 C liquid egg whites, 2 scoops protein powder, 1.5 oz of EVOO, 1C blueberries, 1C spinach (blended together) x2 (140g protein, 100g fat, 40g carbs; ~1600kcals)
4 cans of tuna, 2 avocados with sweet potato chips (used 1lb w/ 1oz EVOO and ate the entire batch); split into two feedings (90g protein, 85g fat, 95g carbs; ~1500kcals)
1 large pizza (~2800kcals)
Chocolate almond protein pudding made with 1C egg whites, 2 scoops protein powder, 1.5 oz almond butter, 2 oz coconut milk (75g protein, 50g fat, 10g carbs; ~800kcals)
Not quite 7000kcals (~6700), but that's assuming the facts provided from Papa John's are accurate to what was in the pizza.

7000cals is next to nothing,i could do it everyday as i never get full.Only eating 3700 now and its childs play.Wish i could hammer 7000 a few times without blowing up/worry about getting fat.
Dont get me wrong i know what you's mean though,it can be tuff at times with veggies,ect... but calorie dense foods make it alot easier.

The blender was my greatest investment into my exercise career. Literally anything and everything goes into it. Just made myself a mean shake: 2 Cups milk, 1/2 cup almonds (grounded), 2 tblspn olive oil, 2 scoops protein, 1 cup liquid eggs then some choclate flavouring to kill all the bad flavour mixing going on haha. Actually tastes good at the end.
My cheat meal is always on leg day.

I understand how all the high cal guys feel… i need at least 5000 to bulk, at one point i was at 6700! It was miserable! And it gets expensive at that point… Has your body adapted to that intake Rodja or do you still have to cram it down?

I'm a big guy at 6 foot 6, so I can usually take down as much food as I please when bulking, have yet to feel a true full feeling. I try to stay away from eating too much, or I will bloat like a balloon and have a big ol round face for a bit until after my PCT.
07-15-2012, 03:29 PM
I eat 4,000-7,000 per day. Not a big fan of it, I'm 5'7" but got a hyperactive metabolism. I usually have my cheat meal Friday night and eat a whole pizza, then back to meat and brown rice.

i average between 4300 and 4800
