I'm bulking right now, and this is what I've been eating. I've been putting in about 350 grams of protein and 400 grams of carbs. Is this too many carbs?

Meal 1: Whole eggs, banana, protein shake
Meal 2: Kashi hot cereal, yoplait light yogurt, apple
Meal 3: Trail Mix bar, string cheese, grapefruit, sandwich,
vegetables
Meal 4: Yoplait light yogurt, string cheese, trail mix bar, kashi
cereal (This is my pre-w/o meal)
Meal 5: Post W/O: Protein shake, chicken breast, rice,
vegetable
Meal 6: Protein Shake, fruit

Thanks.

I'm at 115.84 g of fat w/o the protein shakes. What is considered a lot of carbs? And what is considered too much? Thanks!

There's no such thing as having too much carbs when bulking. Eat, eat, eat, and eat some more. You won't be able to put down enough carbs for it to be too much.

It depends on the person. You need to focus on making sure the total calories matches your needs. You don't need to be as worried about the macro breakdowns.

I would say almost to the side of not enough carbs. Carbs are your bodies preferred method of fuel, so if you want to hit the gym hard with some serious energy and have that protein be effectively used for muscle building, as opposed to an energy source, up your carbs.
