Hi Craig,

this is a bit off topic, but your input would be greatly appreciated. For building muscle, do you eat a slight surplus of calories over maintenance to get some muscle growth? - i know you gained muscle fasting once a week - were you in a slight calorie surplus the other days of the week?(probably hard to know unless you were strictly counting calories)
I know Brad Pilon/John Barban state that calorie surplus does not enhance muslce growth also the guys that trained the '300' movie actors/stuntman state on their website ( - click the knowledge link and scroll down to the '300' link if your interested) that all the actors followed a calorie restricted diet while training like madmen to get their results.
I was just curious to get another experts veiwpoint as everywhere else you turn they tell you to eat a surplus over your maintenance level to gain muscle

Yes, I ate more on other days. I think you are mis-quoting Brad and John.
