Pros and Cons of Eating Above Maintenance Calories on 80/10/10?

Let's say, for example, that you usually eat 3000 calories of food daily following the guidelines of the 80-10-10 diet. This amount of food will maintain your weight and you feel your regular, healthy self. 

What happens if you decide to eat 4000 calories of food?

What are the pros and cons?

Will you feel more optimistic and energetic? Will you put on weight? 

Assuming it does put on weight, is it worthwhile to increase physical activity to match output/input calories? (Will it make you 'healthier'?)

Just been thinking about this today, and I appreciate your answers. :)

If I start eating in the 4000-5000 calorie range I have digestive upsets.  It is not worth it for me to eat more or exercise more right now.  

Keep experimenting with the calorie and exercise load that is good for you.  More is not always better for some folks.  

Peace, PK

From my experience, the more I eat, the better I feel. Remember that in nature, the alpha males eat the most and tend to be the fittest and healthiest. Try upping your calories and stick to simple mono meals, and you might be surprised how a difference of calories makes you want to do more, including excercise. Believe it or not, I make the biggest gains in fitness and improvements in body composition when I stick to mono-meals or mono fruit island on 4500+ calories/day!
