    Find out your maintenance level. Then multiply by 2. What your goal?

    I disagree....usually average is 500 above maintenance. Going 2, 3, or even 4000 above maintenance?? Good way to just add a lot of excess fat.
    My goal as a natural bodybuilder is to improve constantly, and win my pro card, while making an increasing amount of people doubt that I'm natural ;)

    Not necessarily... Since he is just starting he could benefit from all the extra calories, His strength would without a doubt go through the roof. I'd say 1000 over starting then add from there.

    Yeah average is still around 500. A thousand sure, in the beginning maybe, when your body is more prone to add lean mass. But he was saying double your maintenance, so say maint is 2500, youd eat 5000? LOL on the road to being a fatso.
    No matter how your metabolism is, your body will only be able to build muscle so fast. Adding a ton extra is unnecessary, and slow weight gain helps to ensure most is muscle, not just fat storage

    that is the perfect formula for him to look like the pillsbury dough boy.

    best bet is to find a simple nutrition plan and simple workout plan that is already premade, and one from professionals. follow that for 3-6 months and then look for something different.

    I don't have to try eating an extra 3000 calories a day to know that it will add 5lbs of fat a week, just like I don't need to jump off a 20 story building to know it will kill me.

    Anyone eating double maintenance who isn't gaining a lot of fat, has done their calculation of their maintenance level incorrectly.

    I agree. I get fat on just 400 over. My average for bulking is 150-250 over maintance.

    Bump up your calories 500-1000 calories. A lot of proteins and carbs. Make sure your working out right, getting enough rest etc...

    For starters there are lot of articles on online which one to you have to start the workouts. And for the diet you have to take the 5 to 6 small meals a day with in that you have to add the white meat and mostly the seafood and colorful veggies with proper calories.
