    I am starting to plan out my bulking diet since I will be starting my bulk in about 2 months. 1 more month of cutting, 1 month of maintaining, and then bulking until March.

    I planned out a diet of 2595 calories, I gain weight easily when I start eating, so I am starting out at 2595 and see where that brings me, but the breakdown is 319gr protein, 146gr of carbs and 86gr of fat. That would be 50% protein, 20% carbs, 30% fat. Is this a good breakdown or is 319gr of protein too much?

    I will be around 170lbs when I start the bulk.

    I'd lower the protein to get more carbs. Carbs will put you in an anabolic environment and a higher cal intake means that you don't need that much protein. Something closer to 40/40/30 would seem better to me.

    not that tiny, but just gain very easily, like I said, I will be maintaining at 2000 calories for a month, then upping it to 2500 and see what happens, I want to be gaining 1lb a month, so if 2500 is not enough then i will up it then, but for now that is what I am planning on.

    I went from being a huge fatty to being not such a huge fatty, so I am kind of hesistant to eat and eat and eat, I don't want to become a fatty again.
