I’m a 6’4 182 lb. male, currently trying to “bulk”. Anyways, i’ve used those calorie calculators and shit, and generally I find on them that I need 3,000 calories to maintain weight. So, for my bulk, I put it up to 3,500 calories a day.
When I did some research on here, I see a lot of people are going anywhere from 4,000-5,000 calories daily. Do you think these calculators are shit, and I need to up my food intake, or what? I know the only real way to tell is by looking at the scale, but I just wanted some advice.
I lift pretty intensely 6x per week, and I do cardio (usually runs around 2.5 miles) about three times a week.
