    Looks pretty solid. The only thing that I might change is to drop fat and cals just a bit. You're already at 16% and personally, I see no reason to bulk when you're 16% but to each their own. But I'd nonetheless drop fat and cals a bit to avoid putting on too much fat.
    You don't wanna start your cut at 20% b/f lol. You'd just be spinning your wheels.

    You consume 1 tbsp of olive oil twice daily. Cut this back to 1/2 tbsp twice daily.... saves you 14g of fat and about 100 cals.

    Or, cut back your 2 tbsp twice daily of peanut butter to 1 tbsp twice daily.... saves you 16g fat and almost 200 cals.

    Looks good, but if you're going to have that many carbs I'd cut the fats a little bit as mentioned.

    It's not the fat that will make you fat, it's the CARBS. You can eat as much fat as you like (preference good fats) as long as you keep the carbs low

    energy in = energy out. it's the law of thermodynamics.

    eat 4,000 calories a day, and even if most of your fat are "good fats" - for the most part, you'll still get fat


    I know lot's of vegans/vegetarians that only eat "good fat" and are still fat. (i'm talking 30%+)

    At 16% (if that is really what you are) I personally see no reason to "bulk" unless you are competing in powerlifting. What do you hope to gain through this? You will likely end up stronger but fatter and unhealthier as well. If it were me I would clean up the diet and try to lean out a bit. Your body is much more apt to put on muscle when you are leaner. That being said, to each their own and the mass diet posted looks good.
