View Full Version : Calorie Breakdown

I'm reading all kinds of different information on this so I want to see what advise some of you people give. I have improved my intake 100% from what I was doing but still need to fine tune it...I'm 247 lbs. and always bulking (so alittle fat don't scare me)
A guy in another forum said I needed...
4000-5000 cal. (thats almost like eating a baby elephant...lol)
350-375 pro.
500 carbs
50 fat
But in one of my earlier post on this site recomended 125 grams of fat. Some opinions would be truly helpful. I eat really clean so the kind of food is no problem, just the amounts.
And also if I add more fats in my diet please recomend a time of day to consume most of these fats...(I lift at 4:00 in the afternoon on lifting days)

Yeah, more fat. You can drop some carbs to substitute the calories.

You weigh 250~, so yeah, I'd be trying to get 125g per day.

****, I'm 100lb lighter and I get 120g fat most days :D

use these

protein atleast 1-15g of protein per pound of lean body mass
fat atleast 0.5 g of fat per lean pound of body mass

fill the rest of your calls with a mix of protein carbs and fats. i was bulking on 4-5000 cals while my weight was at 220 so ures should be atleast 5000 cals
