Thanks for the complement, I've been busting my butt. You'll get there, you are young and training smart. I didn't start training smart until I was 28.

Yes, short answer, it is better to eat more and burn more, whether cutting or bulking.

For the details, well, I'll give you Berardi's thoughts, he says it better than I can, and check out the article.

"On the exercise end, increased exercise volume and frequency means improved nutrient partitioning — more calories go toward muscle growth and/or energy provision and fewer to fat cells. It means better insulin sensitivity. It also means additional opportunity to stimulate protein turnover, tissue remodeling, and positive adaptation.


More calories mean sustained sympathetic nervous system activity, maintained metabolic rates, and, perhaps most important to the entire process, better vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant status"
