How does one find out how many calories they need for maintenance? According to Iron Addict, you only need to eat slightly above maintenance to gain muscle and not a lot of fat. I've been stuffing my face and have added fat around the midsection. I'm not concerned about it, I just want to see if it works. And I wouldn't mind not adding too much more fat while going through ti-phase and eventually towards a small cut.
