    Your math is wrong.

    Protein = 150x4 = 600 cals
    Fat = 120x9 = 1080 cals
    Carb = 150x4 = 600 cals

    Total = 2280

    Goal is to gain 0.5 lb per week.

    Thanks that makes sense!

    Perhaps I need to up my calories. But don't want to overshoot it, so maybe will jump from 3000 to 3200 for a week and see what the scale says.
