I love the Internet. Especially when you stumble on a gem without much effort. Like this one:
From the FAQ here is my favorite quote.
Question: How much do I need to eat?
Answer: More. There is an old business adage, “don’t dress for a job you have; dress for the job you want.” Apply this to your eating. If you want to be 215, you need to eat for 215, not for your 165 pound sprint-Tri doing self. You won’t get 70’s Big by pushing bird seed around your plate at your local hippy bistro. Start with 125-150% of what you’re eating now and see how that goes for a couple weeks.
Back in college I went the gym pretty regularly. A good friend and I would do all the standard muscle head stuff like bench press, arms and heavy leg days. Oh yeah, and sit-ups with weights(?!). I also started racing bicycles but did not realize until MUCH later just how incompatible these two activities were. I was not big by any stretch but I was about 10 pounds heavier than I am now. And of course I did get into some of the muscle head 'culture' because not confirming is, well, hard.
