    Calorie intake while on Hdrol?


    Just want to make sure i am not eating too much.

    I am 6'1 225lbs

    I normally take in 3800-4300+ calories a day anyways, I started hdrol a week ago and started upping my food intake.

    But holy **** i am hungry all the time, no matter how much i eat, i'm hungry 30 min later.

    So i counted my calorie intake the other day... nearly 5300 calories, is this too much?

    meals were

    Meal 1: Shake (oats, whey, pb, bannana, berries)
    Meal 2: Lean burger, oatmeal bar, whole milk
    Meal 3: 2 chicken breasts, vegetables, rice, whole milk
    Meal 4: turkey and roast beef sandwich, oatmeal bar, whole milk
    Meal 5: salad, talapia, broccoli, rice, whole milk
    snacks: protein shake after w/o, PB&J before bed with whole milk

    1.5-2+ gallons of water daily

    Can go in to more detail, but basically is that too much ??

    I am bulking, which is why the calorie surplus. And maintenance is supposed to be ~3200 calories. But for me anything under 3800 and i drop weight like crazy. I want to gain weight, but lean muscle not fat.

    That's a very arbitrary question. That's like me asking you if 3700 calories is too much for me. You know nothing about me or my goals.

    Are you trying to bulk? Maintain? Cut? What is your BMR?

    Edit: Saw you basically answered what i asked.

    500 calorie surplus is generally considered the level for lean gains. Steroids change this a bit. Depending on how long your cycle is you can have some time to play with your macros. For a mild oral steroid cycle i'd go about 800 cals over maintenance for lean gains. If you seem to be adding fat then drop the cals by 100 or so. It's pretty easy.
