Nutrition

No matter what anyone says, you have to ensure you are eating at a caloric surplus. There is no way your body will be able to produce, if more muscle eating at maintenance or caloric deficit. With that being said, I would not recommend binge eating until full or satiated. Start by calculating you BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate); this is how many calories you will burn just by being alive. Start with this BMR, with a macro break down as follows:

Fat = 0.3 x bodywieght in lbs

Protein = 0.9 x bodywieght in lbs

Carbs = what ever calories are left

For example if you BMR is 2000 and you are a 200lb man than your caloric break down would be:

Fat = 60g (540 calories)

Protein = 200g (800 calories)

Carbs = 2000 - (540+800) = 165g (660 calories)

Once you have your basic break down of calories, now all you have to do is adjust your carb intake based on your goals. If you want to gain muscle (which you said you do), start by increasing your carbs by 50g per day. Do this for 1 - 2 weeks and weigh yourself. If you are gaining weight, stay the course until you stop gaining weight. If you are not gaining weight, then add another 50g per day until you start to gain weight.

Remember, BMR only gives you a baseline. It is a scientific calculation but should only be used as a guide. Everybody is different and you will have to learn your body to figure out what works best for you.

So you want to grow bigger biceps? Start following this routine. Focus on progressive overload in the gym and get the nutrition right in the kitchen. Good luck on your journey!
