Home Forums 40 Day Buns & Guns Challenge 2023 Nutrition Calorie Intake Reply To: Calorie Intake


Hi Nicole, Naomi, Moe and Amanda!
I calculated my maintenance right at the end of Build and Burn challenge.
A maintenance of 1817c calories per day with a conservative surplus up to 1998c.
After Build and Burn, I have been eating between 1600+ and 1700+ on and off most days.
My goal is to gain lean muscle.
Based on my height 5’2, I should be on menu 1. Do any of you agree with me or recommend starting with menu 2?
I’m a hard gainer and when I was training with Naomi I saw better progress with more food.
Thanks, Maria
I can’t wait to see you in camp next month!

It sounds like you know exactly where to start. You know what works for you and I would trust that for sure!
