I was a bit hasty posting this. I should have just tried it first, but it sounded really high to me because when I was on a traditional low fat high veggie carb diet, I had a hard time ever breaking 3500 calories.
I did my first day on the AD yesterday and found it to be easy to get my calories. I even had to have a lighter than normal dinner (1 chicken breast only) to not go too far over.
Here is the basics from my tracking my meals on fitday.com yesterday.

I went high on my carbs, I would have been a lot closer, but I had 10 OZ of milk which hurt bad, and the whey I currently am on has 4 grams per scoop (2 scoops per shake ). I got some new low carb whey though so I should be able to stay under 30 grams carbs now I think.[/quote]
Cool. Check out the lower carb milk too if you want to keep that in the mix.
