I have a few clients who constantly hit 4k, some hit upward to 5-5.5k a day (1000g of carbs),
One client likes an outlined meal plan like below, so i will share it, if we stall we add larger portions, if we need to cut back we simply lower the portions or extra liquid calories
1.5 Bagels or 3 English Muffins

6oz Chicken Thigh
2 Cups Cooked Rice

If Iím bulking up I donít really follow a plan so much as I try to get 300g protein (1200) 500g carb (2000) 100g fat (900) and then 30-50g fiber in the form of a sugar free supplement additive which I do not count as caloric intake.
Do as I say, not as I do.

4K has been a sweet spot for me over the past year or so when it comes to lean gains.
I actively try to get variety but below is a pretty standard day
Meal 1 - 100g oats made with almond milk, 50g protein powder, 15g almonds, 15g walnuts, 25g dried prunes
Meal 2 - 2 eggs plus 6 egg whites omelette with cheese, mushroom, pepper and asparagus. Served with either smoked salmon, chicken breast or salmon fillet plus sourdough toast
Meal 3 - 200g chicken breast with bad of mixed veg
Meal 4 - 250g prawns with stir fry veg and cauli rice
Meal 5 sausage and bacon sandwich, bowl of fruit, 500g Greek yogurt
Meal 6 protein bar
During the day I have a couple of other protein snacks and some dried fruit during training plus a shake after training.
Keep protein very high, carbs and fats moderate

After this I will have pasta, broccoli, and a protein shake with whole milk.
Do as I say, not as I do.

F 160 C 230 P 310 on gear (the one time I counted)
I drop the protein down to 200 something when I'm off which is most of the time. I sometimes carload during the weekends.
Edit. This is under 4k, I think I'm around 3.6-3.8k average

Damn both my offseason and contest diets aren’t very old school compared to those food choices.. more like guys in the 80s like Rich Gaspari etc etc.. like no bread unless it’s ezekiel which is flourless. Carb sources are typically potato’s white or sweet. Actually mainly potato and Ezekiel as far as complex carbs because thats what I enjoy more so then a bowl of oats.

I agree I have done the same and honestly have cut my carbs way back for example use to have 2 cups of rice per meal over 4 meals now maybe 1 cup over 3 meals and so much leaner and tighter. Overeating doesn’t put on muscle any faster than a slight caloric surplus does just sloppy weight. I hate the whole bodybuilding term of eat big to get big because it’s very misleading when most bodybuilders through coaches I have had give you 5 “small meals a day” plus the minutes I can’t see veins or have some sort of smooth and not grainy look then what’s the point of doing all this
