    no idea as to what the quantum body method is but in general I am a fan of either full body workouts or upper body/ lower body splits and try and utilize as much compound lifts as possible. For calories start off with about 3500-4k calories and adjust from there. Your goal is to find you maintance point and from here you will adjust it down to wehere you are loosing about .5-1lb a week. Keto diets work best for me personally and I suggest them to everyone so I will say give that a shot.

    sorry that was a typo I meant to put either not wither sorry.

    As for maintance point this simply means you need to find a place where you are not loosing or gaining any weight, where you are maintaing you current physique
