The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    My Macros

    I am 22, 193 lbs, 6'1". I have been trying to seriously bulk up in the past 1-2 months by changing my diet like you guys recommended. The only meat I eat is fish because I want to eventually become a vegetarian. My goal is to bulk up with muscle mass but lately I have been noticing I am gaining some fat in my stomach. Guess this is normal but it really irks me. This is an average meal plan for me:

    Breakfast: 1 flaxseed oil pill, 5 egg whites, 1 scoop of ON Whey Protein, bowl of old fashioned oats or Kashi GoLean High Protein cereal, apple
    Mid Morning: 1 scoop of ON Whey Protein, Peanut Butter sandwich, 1 bagel, banana
    Lunch: Can of tuna wrapped in wheat tortilla, broccoli, black beans or red kidney beans
    Mid Afternoon: 1 scoop of ON Whey Protein, large handful of almonds, celery, bowl of old fashioned oats
    Dinner: Can of salmon mixed with large plate of egg noodles or brown rice, green beans or salad, black beans or red kidney beans
    Before bed: Lowfat cottage cheese, 1 scoop of ON Whey Protein (Either now or afterworkout at 6 before dinner)

    So my Macros for the meal plan that I used yesterday:
    Calories: 3,298
    Fat (g): 70.4
    Carbs (g): 423.8
    Protein (g): 258.6

    Fat (19%)
    Protein (31%)
    Carbs (50%)

    I am attaching the screenshot of the foods I entered. So how does this look? On a lot of foods besides my proteins, I noticed I am using more than one serving. Should I just go to one serving for pretty much everything besides protein?

    EDIT: It says that my file is to big to upload on here but all it is is 2 screenshots of my computer on two sheets of Microsoft Word. Any help on how I can show this to you?

    Protein is good. I would add a bit more fat and drop the carbs just a bit if you want to stick to 3300 calories. Shoot for .5g/lb of fat so 95g or so of fat. If 3300 calories is working for you great, if it isn't enough then just add some more calories.

    If your trying to gain and not gaining add more cals in. Typically add cals in from protein sources first, then other sources.

    So it looks good though? My carb intake isn't way to much?

    Carbs aren't too much if it is working. If your not gaining add some more of any of them. Nothing wrong with that much carbs if you trying to gain and not way over on calories.
