Im a male 43 years old, 5'5" and weight 215 with a BF at 24%. I have completed all the p90x series and had amazing results. But as im sure all have gone thru, life took over ...and here i am! When i calculate my calorie intake to build/bulk i need 3000 cals to bulk. Im doing the huge beast level. Am i taking in to much cals to bulk, or should i drop my cals while doing the huge beast level?

Mass..focus on shoulders, back and arms.

@CanuckBobby cool. 3000 is about right for mass at your current weight. If you want to cut some fat, I would follow the beast phase part of the nutrition plan

I am 5'3" and need to lose and want to gain lots of muscle.  I weigh 150.  I am concerned about the fat gain too.  Should I just wait until I get my order for my system (body beast)?  I am assuming it will give me more detail on how to calculate my calories.  My calculation for phase 1 is 1833 calories per day which seems ok for me, but I see where people are posting that they actually gain fat in the first two phases.

I'm petite at 5 feet 110 lbs. & 24% body fat. It says I should eat 1850 cals on the build/bulk phase. I'm worried that's too many calories for me to get smaller

@sMerr If your goal is fat loss then I would NOT follow the body beast nutrition plan. MAYBE you could follow the BEAST phase of the nutrition plan which is for fat loss though.

My calculations came out to be 1653 but I noticed Body Beast starts at 2000

@mavy36 What is your body weight and current body fat percentage?

Just started BodyBeast, ending week 1 today. I am sitting at about 143lbs & 13 or 14% BF. Do I really only need to eat 1,900cal per day during the BUILD phase?! That seems really low to me &  I'm worried I'm doing the the calculation wrong haha. 

Let me know - thanks!

I've calculated and this is the end of my first day. My goal to build was 2800 calories but I am still hungry? Suggestions?

I'm at 12% body fat right now I have a bit of a gut what would u recommend for me to do? I am 170 right now my goal weight is to be 185 to 200. should I just start bulking or try to slim down first?
