How Many Calories a Day Do I Need to Eat to Gain Weight?
I would like to gain mass, but i know i have to expect some fat to come with it.
I have my workout sorted; it’s just the diet that’s stressing me out. I am 19 years old, weigh 120 pounds, and my height is 6″2.
I wouldn’t say the reason i am so skinny is because i am a hardgainer, but rather the fact that i just don’t, and never have done, eaten enough food. I would say for the past few years i have eaten anything between 1000-1500 calories a day. Usually coming from 2 meals, breakfast and tea, and biscuits throughout the day.
Anyway, im serious now about gaining weight and i’m going to commit my time to doing so.
What would be an ideal amount of calories to eat?
How much should it differ on training and non-training days?
Where should the calories come from, i.e. 50% carbs, 30% protein, and 20% fat.
What type of food to eat, i.e. oats, pasta, rice, etc
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks
