Massive Eating: I, Caloric Needs


Go to your gym and have a trainer who knows what there doing use calipers on you



Like Phill said, calipers are great but don't trust them completely. Depending on your body composition you may hold some more fat in some places than others. My readings came out to 15% a week before I began cutting. 2 days later I got a tank test done at my university and it turned out to be 12%.
