Heres some background.
Age: 20
Height: 5'8''
Weight: 150
BF: 12-13% (according to scale)

Other Info: Previous cross country runner, and taking a break from triathlons currently. I'm an endurnace guy. This summer though, I want to bulk and gain 10-15 pounds of muscle.

I am lifting 3x/week and running 3x/week...playing an hour of soccer/tennis 2x/week.

So I started a diet like this because I was reading on the boards so much about eating 50% protein, etc etc. I never counted the calories, but today I finally decided to do so. Here are my results from today, which is fairly typical:
All foods are: Calories(Fat/Carb/Protein)

9:00am
4.5mile run

10:00am
Carbwell Cereal: 110 (1.5/14/11)
Low Sug Low Fat Milk 70(0/3/12)
Apple 80;(0/20/0)
Whey Pro. Shake: 120(1/3/24)

11:00am
SB Diet Cereal Bar 140(5/15/4)

3:00pm

Tuna: 180(1/0/32)
FF Cheese: 30(0/2/5)
2 Slcs Bread: 220(2/38/8)
Almonds 300(22/8/18)
Pear 80(1/21/1)


5:30
2xVeggie Burgers 280(12/10/30)
1 Slc Bread 110(1/19/4)
Cott. Cheese 90(1/3/16)


8:00

Chicken Breast 255(5/0/50)
Flatbread 170(1/38/6)
Veggies


TOTALS:

Total Calories 2651
Fat: 67g 605 25%
Carbs: 219g 744 31%
Protein:270g 1081 44%

My concern:
I weigh 150 lbs and I ate 270g Protein. wtf.


I want to bulk up. Shouldnt I be eating closer to 3000 calories? How can I if my protein should be around 150g?

Thanks!

no, you can eat anywere from 1-5g of protein per 1lb of bodyweight, my little brother is 175lbs and gets about 400-500g protein a day. Nothing bad about it, just make sure you drin alot of water.

First comment I would make is that maybe instead of running right away you should grab a meal and then go.

Increase your cals by increasing your fats. Your protein and carbs are ample.

Healthy fats can include natty PB, olive oil, fish oil, avocados, raw nuts, and even small amounts of animal fat such as egg yolks, and butter

Hmmm... it's saturated animal fat, but I suppose, in small quantities...

Technically if you eat your own fat, the process of chewing and digesting it probably burns more than you take in, so you can only lose more weight.

I don't eat my own fat; I eat other people's fat.
