@ CT:

In your opinion would the total protein in 3 Pulses, 2 Plazma scoops, 2 Finibars and a solid food protein source for dinner be enough total protein during a hyper layer gain phase?

I follow JM's reactive plan diet works well...

Basics of it are on training days use peri nutrition... when off don't. Keep the rest in and around the same.

Nice and simple !

@Sputoon & Voluminus Eye Shadow:

Yeah the Reactive Pump diet is a great and easy guide. This was regarding a comment I remember CT stating that he found with even minimal outside calories consumed he noticed growth from the above list. Even if your total hyper caloric intake was not really high from a protein standpoint. Of course adding in the rice and protein at night for the main meal calories.

An even simpler approach really. But not quite as high in cals.

Though, I was using the 3400 @ 107kg (not in shape)) and it was stuck... so if anything overshoot your calories doing these infernal layers.... won't go to waste.

And LOL @ the name

Weight; for 2.5 weeks it stayed literally at the same exact number.. even to a 0.01 correction.

Added a 3rd chicken & rice divided between the 2 meals to move it up... still not much luck.

Down 0.1 kg....

CT was correct in that your body does seem to hoover up any and all nutrients if you go at it hell for leather.

Got it old chap. It was more a question of total protein intake over the total calories but understood. A typical diet of whey/ casin, chicken and such is not the same as 3 pulses, Plazma and and chicken. Thus lower amounts needed for the latter.
