hello all! I'm amidst a very slow and steady 'gaining phase' (hesitant to call it a bulk, as I'm being fairly conservative with my eating).
The approach I have taken is starting with kcal at 14 x BW and have reassessed every week to 2 weeks based on weight change and energy levels. I'm upping calories slowly to minimise any fat gain; so far I just throw in an extra 100 kcal/ day each week that my weight doesn't change/ goes down in some cases.
So, on to my question. Does anyone have any methods by which they decide what macros said calories come from? For example; low energy in the gym; increase carbs? Low energy in the day; increase fat? Or, do you just try and get carbs as high as possible? Or protein?
I know this is largely individual. Never the less; could be useful to learn from other's experience.
Cheers for any input
