Just working out a bulking diet and running into some troubles. At 165lb, 5' 7", using the 2x bodyweight for protein calculations, I should be eating 330 grams of protein. Many people say a 40-40-20 macro mix is good. I figured my BMR is somewhere around 1700kcal/day. Adding in a activity number, I'm roughly burning 3100kcal/day with a med to heavy activity level. Adding in 500kcal on top of that to start gaining weight brings me to 3500 to 3600kcal/ day to bulk up.
Going back to the 40-40-20 ratio, I would be eating around 350-360 grams of protein!!! That's well over 2x my bodyweight.
Can someone help me out with these macros? Maybe I'm missing something here but trying to obtain a 40-40-20 ratio. If that just doesn't work for me, what would you suggest?
