This is what my daily macro-nutrient breakdown looks like that I was going to start following (bulking)…

Calories:
3440 kcalories per day, spread over 5 meals, that’s 688 kcals per meal, breakdown is below:

Protein:
189.2 grams of protein, spread over your 5 meals.
This equates to 757 (calories) per day from protein.
This equates to 37.8 grams of protein per meal.
That will be 22% of my daily calories.

Fat:
115 grams of fat per day, spread over your 5 meals.
This equates to 1032 (calories) per day from fat.
This equates to 23 grams of fat per meal.
That will be 30% of my daily calories.

Carbohydrates:
413 grams of carbs per day, spread over 5 meals.
This equates to 1651 (calories) per day from carbs.
This equates to 82.6 grams of carbs per meal.
That will be 48% of my daily calories.

But I think I like your advice better, ‘Just eat clean in large amounts and replace salads with potatoes and pasta…ooh and some lovely bread ‘. 😀
