High Calories = Anabolic State

Post  sleepyme123 on Thu May 17, 2012 10:44 am

One of the most overlooked factors in bodybuilding is consuming enough protein but not eating enough calories per day. You've always heard that your body needs protein to grow and this is true. However, adequate protein does not always entail growth. You need to consume adequate calories also.

The truth is, if you don't consume enough calories, then you're not growing. A good rule of thumb is to take your bodyweight and multiply this by 10 or 12 depending on how in shape you are. Then add on 1000-1500 calories per day.

Some bodybuilders got big by eating small meals every hour and half. Although they wers eating smaller meals, their total caloric intake was above the daily caloric expenditure putting their body in an anabolic state.
