comment Diet on Starting Strength - Should I eat the same on my rest days as on my workout days?
Are the "more complicated ways" the same as those mentioned in @tannman357's answer?

Can you provide some links/references? Googling may take me elsewhere than you intended, hence the request!

"Eat in accordance with how heavy you're lifting" - I didn't quite get that... I'm eating consistently at 15% over my maintenance calories w.r.t my body wt/fat %... How do the weight I'm lifting can be factored in there?

@DaveLiepmann: Looking at the data, I see that I was so obsessed with not getting injured and not doing lifts with poor form, I neglected increasing weights consistently - some weeks saw as little as 5lb increases. I know I need to rectify that now - thats where my query comes in (continue, deload, take a gap etc)

@DaveLiepmann: I couldn't add 10lbs every workout in the beginning - which I'd attributed earlier to my weak back, but now I realize eating less would also have worsened that...

@VPeric: This is my eating plan going forward: fitness.stackexchange.com/q/12327/2018. I hope you can give some specific advice if you feel its lacking in some parts...

@VPeric: Yes, I was voluntarily offered advice by one of the guys who was squatting besides me, who pointed out I tended to lean forward in my heavier lifts. I've since then kept a close check that whenever I'm doing my work sets, my weight is being driven through my heels and not my toes...

@DaveLiepmann: I wasn't eating correctly (eating in the region of 2.3K approx, with not enough protein)- which is something I'd realized once I started tracking my eating (detailed in my other question). Thats when it hit me that undereating would have weakened my gains in the gym, hence the thought of rebooting with correct diet...

comment What amount of excess calories, and in what proportion of macro-nutrients, is most effective to bulk up while doing Starting Strength?
The part that I referred to was "It translates to a 15-pound per week increase in squat strength, half as fast as the first two weeks but still very significant at about 60 pounds per month. This adds up to a 225-245 x 5 x 3 squat workout after 6-7 weeks of training for our novice male,IF HE HAS BEEN EATING CORRECTLY." I would be happy to get to that level in 6-7 weeks, in whatever my then weight is that point (with the same approx. fat %)

So, essentially what rippletoe claims here: startingstrength.com/articles/clarification_rippetoe.pdf is not something you agree with?
