      Yes, but you don't need much calories as train days it's about 300calories less on rest days.

      Not really, the body doesn't work in 24 hour time frames so there is no need to decrease calories in non work out days. Figure out how much you want to surplus and then stick to it every day.

      An untruth.

      Protein synthesis goes on for quite a while after your workout.

      So your telling you don't need to eat any protein every other day because protein synthesis takes 24-48h?

      Yes. That's exactly what I'm ****ing saying. 0 grams of protein on rest days. You are a genius. Give this man a nobel prize.
