I have always been a fan of cooking in bulk and I don't mind eating the same thing for a week straight, then maybe changing it up a little bit the next. I'm finally going to start counting calories, hitting macros, and not just winging it because for the past couple of months I've been stabled off at 170. With a goal weight now of 200 and hitting 192 at one point recently *during cycle*, then losing it all back to 170 I figure it's definitely time to get strict with this.
So i'm 170lbs, aiming for 3,000 calories, 200g pro, 200g+ carb, 100g fat. Right now this is what I've come up with:
4 eggs 400 cal 28g pro 4g carb 28g fat 8 oz milk 150 cal 8g pro 12g carb 8g fat 550 cal 36g pro 16g carb 36g fat
8 oz chicken 260 cal 54g pro 0g carb 2g fat 1 cup rice 200 cal 5g pro 44g carb 2g fat 460 cal 59g pro 44g carb 4g fat
8 oz ground turkey 520 cal 60g pro 0g carb 29g fat 1 cup rice 200 cal 5g pro 44g carb 2g fat 720 cal 65g pro 44g carb 31g fat
2 cup spaghetti 340 cal 14g pro 74g carb 2g fat 1/2 cup sauce 80 cal 2g pro 14g carb 2g fat 1 cup rice 200 cal 5g pro 44g carb 4g fat 620 cal 21g pro 132g carb 8g fat
Whey Protein Powder 280 cal 54g pro 6g carb 6g fat 16 oz Milk 300 cal 16g pro 24g carb 16g fat tbsp Peanut Butter 95 cal 4g pro 3g carb 8g fat 675 cal 74g pro 33g carb 30g fat
3025 calories 255g protein-8 269g carbs 109g fat 40% 42% 18%
I feel that maybe 3k calories may be a little bit too much for me at 170 as my job is not demanding physically at all, but I would be prepared for the initial fat gain, which would stable off as I gain more weight and it becomes closer to my maintenance calories.
Anyways, any help and suggestions would be appreciated. Do note that I can still add in some bread and I have negated all vegetables thus far, not on purpose, just because I wasn't going to count those as calories...is that a mistake? I think they shouldn't be counted as carbs???
