So my aim is for 3000 calories, according to myfitnesspal this comes in at just under that, with macros of
I know I don't need that much protein but made up excess calorie with more protein, sure some will say my last 'meal' is bit crap but by then I won't be hungry so made up calories with milk, but as I said I will be having stuff when hungry so might have the milk with dinner and then leave it.
I know I don't need to eat 6 times a day, I will eat when hungry but just set it out this way, it's all foods I really like and hit my mininum macros, but i am newbie so might be but crap so suggestions welcome.
Linusit - Organic Premium Milled Flaxseed 1 teaspoon (15g)
Tesco Organic - Gala Apples, 133 g for one apple

Tesco - Finest Farmhouse Multigrain Batch, 2 slices
Tesco - Tuna Chunks In Brine (Correct Values), 1 tin

The fat free products is to balance out macros, I love carbs so wanted lots with excess calories after protein and fat
Sure I will have some so called crappy foods to and fit them into my macros, but for whole I aim to stick quite closely to above foods as know I will stick to that as all foods I really enjoy...brb McDonald's.
Cheers, hope it's ok but probably ****

You shouldn't really need that much protein unless maybe you are cutting which I doubt on 3k cal. Should be more like around 1g protein/1lb of lean mass if i'm not mistaken. So you could swap some of that extra protein around for more carbs in your diet if you are a carb lover.
And yeah post weight and other stats"Bodybuilding isn't a path towards optimal health, it's about hypertrophy & leaness. A bodybuilding diet isn't one for health & neither is the style of conditioning."
"The names of the foods you eat are not relevant to the outcome of your diet. What is relevant is total daily energy intake (calories) and micro/macronutrient sufficiency. "

I am 5'10 and 170 and according to wonderpug I am around 16% body fat, but with little LBM, so I don't want to cut as I'll just be smaller version of what I am with little muscle, so on wonderpugs advice I am eating 10% above mainteance, my tdee is just under 2800, going to start at 3000 and adjust as I see fit.
And I know I don't need that much protein but doesn't matter if I do have it either.
