Cornfold et al. found that GH levels of seven (formerly ;-) healthy, nonobese men (body mass index, 24 ± 1 kg/m2; age, 25 ± 1 yr) "declined nearly 80% by d 3 of overeating".

The average plasma GH concentration at baseline, d 3, and 2 wk of overeating.
So, what can we conclude from that? A dirty / extreme bulk with a high carb intake will ruin your GH levels, spike your insulin levels and set the stage for fantastic, or should I say "fatastic", mass or rather fat gains.
