The article makes sense. Note, however, that for someone 200 pounds, he recommends 4064kcals. That's quite a bit of good food. Most guys can't even tell your what their caloric intake is, much less its composition.
On my contest diet, I'll eat 3800 calories a day at 200.
Most folks fail in getting more muscular because they don't eat. Nutrition is the key component.
For getting big and strong, we're talking dense food...meat and potatoes. That's one of the reasons I weighed 175 in high school, and was not fat. It's all in the food.
If you don't eat plenty of good protein, your gains will be poor. It's nearly impossible to make gains without meat. Fats aren't bad, either, as they're caloricly dense, but, fried food and fast sugars (too often) will make you fat. Going without eating will make you fat, too.
