There's a lot of different points of view on this one but here's my two cents.
If you're bulking and want maximum recovery between workouts I'd keep the amount of food you eat the same for workout days and off days. The thought is that your body becomes accustomed to x cals/day, if there is a significant drop in cals then you could be sending the wrong message about when the next meal is coming, which could lead to an increase in body fat.
I've even read that muscles are in desperate need of protein even after 48 hours of your workout - and you need the carbs to prep for the next insane workout and with testosterone production.
A lot of words to say I'd keep it the same when on a bulking cycle.
Anyone else with a different take on it??
