    Wow, thanks for the links this will truly help me out.. I read the one about Harris benedict formula and it seems more down to earth calorie wise etc.... now I just wondered if someone could explain to me in when to eat simple ie) fruits vs complex carbs ie) pasta, rice??? just wish to clarify that. also how should i spread my protein/carbs/fat? is it ok just to divide it by 6? for 6 meals? thats the easiest but will it optimize growth? I have read you should slam carbs right in after a workout. i just need to sit down and figure the best diet plan here
