But how can you get so many calories without being bloated and endotoxins?Spot on.
@AndrogenicJB The cyclical calorie thing is good in theory, but IMO it could lead to more orthorexia in practice.
You might just want to keep cals approximately the same from day to day and instead focus on raising calories from week to week. Maybe something like this:
Week 1: 2800/day
Week 2: 2900/day
Week 3: 3000/day
...and so on and so forth until you've hit 4,000+
Also, dude! You're 17. Please don't undereat. Once you hit 4,000 cals/day or so never look back! A lot of guys, myself included, keep growing taller til their mid 20s. Not to mention skeletal changes via growth plates. If you skimp on calories now it could severely limit your development in the long run.
Your current status at 9% bodyfat is also likely causing some of your libido issues. 10-15% might be a better range to shoot for.
If you find foods and macro ratios that work for you, you should be able to stay in this range even while eating way more.
Best of luck brother!
It's really difficult for me consuming just 2000 or 2500 calories without being bloated.
What foods do you eat mainly?
