I admit I am a bit like Tate. I think nutrition is overrated in the sense that as long as a reasonable amount of protein and calories are taken in, and a sensible amount of healthier food, you really don't need to obsess about much.

Last year I ate like a complete fool and broke nearly every rule and destroyed PRs.

Don't read into this as me telling bodybuilders not to count macros, etc. I am merely saying that if you get your calories in and eat a reasonable amount of healthy food and protein then you're good to go. It's really not rocket surgery.

To Pull's point...you don't need to gain weight to get reasonably strong. Powerlifting records reveal this reality. I had a near 400 pound squat while weighing 190-ish in college. But I will add that I do get stronger much more quickly when I am gaining weight at a semi-rapid pace. This has never let me down.
