Say I am currently consuming 4500 - 5000 kcals a day - even on rest days and I have finally started to notice a fair amount of fat gain. I have been eating this many kcals for about 10 weeks and have gained close to 18 pounds, most of which is muscle. All lifts have gone up dramatically.
I have read about people shocking their body during a bulking phase by cutting kcals in half for about two weeks to get their body back into absorbing everything that they take in. I especially read that people that are experiencing a bit more fat gain than wanted do this for a two week period then get right back on a bulk at an excessive caloric level.
Any one have any feedback?
