Massive Eating? Questions...

For anyone out there that is following massive eating, how much fat have you gained?

Also, is eating every hour and a half too much?

What and how much fat do you get with your fat and protein meals?

Do you eat a carb and protein meal in the morning or a carb and fat meal?

I am on Massive Eating and have experience great gains with minimal fat gain.

To figure out how much fat to get with your P&F meals, divide your total ‘goal’ of fatfor a day by the total number of meals.

Not sure what Massive Eating article you read, but JB doesn’t mention C&P meals anywhere!!

What aschy said.

I work out first thing in the morning so on those days, my first meal is Surge (i.e. P+C) as I’m driving to the gym. Otherwise, since the article says to make most of your P+C meals in the 4-6 hours PWO, the answer to your question should be pretty obvious.

Since I doubt you’re implying Berardi is using Boolean algebraic expresions, what do you think he (JB) means when he says P+C?

Eat as often as you can. My problem is not eating often enough.

Your body processes carbs better in the morning, yes. P+C in the morning and P+F in the afternoon/evening.

The exception to this is the post-workout, which is always lots of carbs with protein, etc. (i.e. Surge).

Your body may process carbs better in the morning, but in terms of stricly following the M.E. plan, that’s not what the article says calls for.

Long term, I doubt it’ll make much difference either way as long as you avoid the dreaded C+F combination.

From Massive Eating Reloaded, Part II:
From this discussion it should be pretty clear that a couple of P+C meals should be ingested during the few hours after your training session (whenever that might be). Not only will you get a superior anabolic response, but you?ll probably continue losing fat as well. (emphasis added)

OOOPS! I meant to say JB doesn’t mention P&F meals anywhere per Hawksons original post and NOT P&C like I stated in my post. Thanks for the correction.

So… if you’re not eating fat with your P+C meals… when would you be getting your fat in? Obviously in P+F meals.
