I have a question. I'm bulking up and I was wondering how many people count there cal/pro/carbs. I just estimate.. Would that work?

Counting is the only way to track properly. Will it kill you not to? No. Is it going to benefit you to count? Most likely.

Yeah, but it me for some reason it seems so hard. Also how would you count for stuff like meat.

weigh it

www.fitday.com is a great source for tracking calories.

When I'm bulking, I tend to just eat like a madman.

Yeah thats what I'm doing. I'm just eatting a lot of clean food.

If you don't know how many calories it takes to grow, you won't know if you're eating enough or too much. When it comes time to cut, the problem will still be there. Learn to track your calories, you'll be glad you did.

Carbs: 852
Cals: 3621

These are per meal
63 grams of protein
170 grams of carbs
724 grams of cals

This make sence?

Now I need to get all of that in per meal? What would the ebst way be?

No actually. Even excluding the fat content of the meals, those calories don't add up. There are 4 calories in each gram of protein and carbs. You do the math.

90% of the people on these boards are cutting or bulking, you can do that just fine without counting cals, is it alot easier if you count? Yes.

213 * 1.2 = 255.6 grams of protein
213 * 3 = 639 grams of carbs

and for cals I dont know the measurement.

Where are you getting these numbers from?

Why are you excluding fat from your calculations?

start with a 30% fat caloric intake... EFA's as much as possible

get 1-1.5g of protein per bodyweight....

fill the rest in with complex carbs, use simple carbs PWO
