      Hey guys, So I've read the stickies a couple times and tried a few different times to see what I need and was wondering if this is right or not.

      I'm 21 years old
      5'11"
      162 lbs


      I got my BMR as 1834.16. And TEE at 2567.82 using a 1.4 since I do have a desk job but I do exercise about 5 times a week. Added 20% for a bulk at got 3081.38.

      For Macros I got:
      Protien: 326.5g
      Carbs: 266g
      Fats: 79g

      Does this look at all right? It looks like a lot to me.. But then again this is my first time to ever "bulk" and actually look at paying attention to my diet. Thanks!

      Protein is definitely high. I'm sure the experts will follow me with more..

      You don't need so much protein, you can lower it as far as 162 but I'd for for 200g as a guideline, up your carbs and fats

      The "golden" rule is 1g/pound of body weight for protein

      Yeah that looked like A LOT of protein. So lower that and add it to carbs and fat? Any recomendation on which to add it to? Or just play with it?

      As long as you meet your protein requirements you can eat as much for the rest as long as it fits into your tdee. I would probably shoot for around 400g carbs, 200g protein and 80g fat
