ideal macros for a bulk?
Okay so I have several questions
i am consuming 3700 cals right now- i was eating at 3400 and gained some weight then lost 2 lbs? Flucuation of weight perhaps combined with higher metabolism
I am consuming 45 g of protien a meal
20-25 g of fats a meal (is this to high should i stay at or below 20?)
Carbs- about 60-80 a meal
I got a bottle of recompadrol coming too
sooooo I will be upping it to 4000 in about 2 weeks when i start my next cycle
but in the mean time is this okay? My main question is the fat thing- is more than 20 g of healthy fats at a meal okay?Test e/dbol/epi/winnie

I say just eat 4000 plus calories. I get 400+g carbs per day, about 250g protein and the rest from fats...
I dont think you should get too complicated into macros and timing if you arent competing... IMO

For bulks, I usually chomp 50% carbs, 30% protein, 20% fat
At 4k cals, that is 500g carbs 300g protein 100g fat.

Also, I feel like when i go over 130g fat a day, I get hella fat. If you are going to add cals on top, I feel that complex carbs are the best.

DAYUMMMMM 500 g carbs! My body in general responds much better to fats than carbs i blow up like a ballon when i go over 400 carbs- I was on 500 when on an anabolic and still got some fat- but also got some quality muscle
I will throw some olive oil shots in there- i will suib it out for some pb
okay well my winter bulk is this
400-450 g of carbs(will be using anabolics plus recompadrol so major partitioning going on)
for a total of 4160 cals- as my weight goes up i will add another 50 g's of carbs and prolly another 10-20 g's of fats(if needed) If i dont stall out in weight gain diet will stay the same

My body does not handle carbs well either. I do much better with fats. I like the caloric level that Carcaya recommended, but I would switch up the composition a bit. Personally right now I am bulking at ~400-450g Pro, cycling between 120-300g carbs, and cycling my fats between 80-130g inversely proportionate to my carb intake for the day.
I like the idea of adding in extra olive oil shots. You could also add in extra Fish oils if you wanted. During my bulk I'm using 18-30g of Fish oil a day.
