can you guys estimate my bf for me? I think im around 10.

im 5-10 around 150. Trying to bulk. How many cals do you think I should be eating? currently im around 2300 40/40/20 c/p/f.

i think that 2300 is not nearly enough. start adding about 500 calories a week, making sure that you are happy with your progress. when you find a number that works and gives you good progress, stick with it. don't worry too much about the numbers. get at least 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight, and then get the rest from good fats and plenty of carbs

14% would be my educated guess.

Dude no way he's 14%. The man's got hardly any visible fat. I'd say closer to 8-9%. If you are 150 lbs you should probably be taking in around 3,500 cals a day. I started at around 150 and that worked well for me. Now up to 163 lbs 2 1/2 months later.
