Calories.

If I had to choose between 200 grams of protein a day and undereating, or 3500 calories and day and only 100 grams of protein, I would go for more food.

Weight gain is inherently anabolic and lends itself to faster strength gains. There was a study a few years back on the weight of sumo wrestlers. The findings indicated that the sumos, despite not lifting, had a base lean body mass close to that of natural bodybuilders.

What this tells us is that weight gain is not all fat gain, like most believe. Obviously everyone is different, but most heavier guys tend to also be stronger. This is one of the reasons.

I fear undereating, but there are many days when my protein is a little on the low side.
