when bulking up trying to keep fat to as little as possible,
is it better to keep say 50% protein 40%carbs 10%fat
would like to hear wot you think.
well you need more fat for a start.
why not go for a 40/40/20 percentage ratio.
when bulking you need to eat more calories over your BMR. Just make sure you don't eat a ridiculus amount of calories over this amount.

If you skimp on the carbs you won't grow. Thats plain and simple. Myself I think more carbs than protein is a good idea. Bulking I'd say anywhere from 2-2.5 g of carbs per lb. of bodyweight. Hope this helps some.

Definitely not enough fats! Most likely not enough carbs and if your calories are high, probably too much protein.

What are you currently eating for a breakdown?
I would have to agree with everyone here, that you are going to need a touch more carbs and fats to have a
honest bulking phase.
I would before you start, really take a look at your current condition, and where you want to be a month from now, and figure out exactly what you are eating, then build from there.
