Fair enough. I would agree that he should increase kcal intake. I just don't understand your recommendation to increase carbohydrate in particular. Given his demands he probably doesn't need more carbs. I would say more fat and protein, but we could go on debating this forever and never really know until he tries. Maybe Scott can give it a go and let us know what happens. Couldn't hurt.
There are dreams we’re taught are normal, whether it’s money or success or any of those things, but we shouldn’t believe in those things if they are not important to us. There is an ocean between our real lives and what is expected of us.” -Tim Lambesis
