    Should I increase my daily calorie intake as I gain muscle ?

    I started taking my calories seriously about 3 years ago, and I weighed about 60kgs/130ish lbs so I ate 3000 everyday and that was perfect for me muscle gain wise, but I weigh like 74kg/163lbs now and when I eat 3000 calories I don’t feel as full and pumped as I used too but I am still gaining muscle. Should I increase my calories slightly to like 3200? Because pretty much all the weight I’ve gained has been muscle and I’ve been seeing that more muscle means more calories

    if you're still making gains and gaining muscle, there's no reason to increase your calories yet. that would only mean unnecessary fat gain

    Yeah I get you that’s what I was thinking, what I forgot to mention was it’s only recently where I’ll eat 3000 n feel not as full as I used too but if I eat slightly more I get the same pumped feeling I used too

    A pound of muscle only burns about 6 to 8 cal more per day so it doesn’t really make any sense to raise your calories
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    Yeah just go by progress and to maintain gaining at the rate you are aiming for. It won’t change much unless your activity level changes.

    I think excess intake of protein will excrete amino acids which further gives you weight gain problems.

    Weight gain comes from an excess of calories - you could eat more protein than you need and still be in a caloric deficit (in which case you would not gain weight).

    Weight gain is a product of taking in more calories than you burn. Dis allowing TEF the macro split doesn't matter
