    3000 calorie 'diet'

    So my aim is for 3000 calories, according to myfitnesspal this comes in at just under that, with macros of

    286 carbs
    87g fat
    253g protein

    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 - Scottish Porridge Oats, 50 g
    Tesco - Smooth Peanut Butter, 25% Less Fat, 1 Tbsp
    Tesco - Value Whole Egg White, 3 egg whites
    Tesco - Value Whole Egg, 2 eggs

    2
    Tesco - Finest Farmhouse Multigrain Batch, 2 slices
    Tesco - Tuna Chunks In Brine (Correct Values), 1 tin
    Tesco - Tesco Snack Pack Cashew Nuts 25g

    3
    ***e - Total 0% Fat Free Greek Strained Yoghurt 100g
    Tesco - Brown Fusilli Pasta, 75 gr uncooked
    Tescos Value - Coldwater Prawns, 100g
    Tesco - Cucumber, 100 g
    Tesco - Cherry Tomatoes, 60g

    4
    Tesco - Finest Farmhouse Multigrain Batch, 2 Slice
    Tesco - No added water honey roast ham 132g, 2 slice
    Tesco - Tesco Snack Pack Cashew Nuts 24g

    5
    Tesco Market Value - Skinless Chicken Breast Fillets 2 Small , 160g
    Tesco Easy Cook - Brown Rice 75g
    Tesco - Freshly Frozen Very Fine Whole Green Beans, 160 g

    6
    Tesco - Semi-Skimmed Milk, 500ml
    ***e - Total 0% fat free Greek yoghurt 100g

    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

    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.

    Yeah I was thinking of maybe downing the protein a bit to add more fat, but wasn't sure
