I've read the stickys about nutrition and calculated the macros and stuff about it :)

Came out - Protein 240g Fat 80g Carbs 107g
2,108 Calories

I'm thinking now how to put Food and make out the diet? haha or there's an article about it?... Thanks.

Are you asking what foods are good to eat?

Personally, I have been eating;

Chicken
Steak
4 eggs total in a day (not consecutively)
Cottage Cheese and Greek Yogurt (been avoiding it due to possible bloating from it)
Peanut Butter
Fruits
Vegetables

You could eat whatever you want as long as you hit your macros. However, I like to have "quality" foods when trying to hit them.

it takes a while to get used to what is in foods, but after you've been tracking for a while, you do start to get a feel for it.

Try using myfitnesspal.com. They have a app as well. Just type in the foods to the meal you're eating at (make sure they have the correct nutritional value) and add them to that meal.

Just eat foods that have the macros you want.

For example;

Have chicken and an avocado. Count the cals protein and fat and what not from the chicken. And count the cals, fat, and carbs and what not from the avocado. Add them up and so far that's the total amount of calories, protein, fats, carbs, sugars, etc. for the day currently.

You only need 150g protein, not 240g.

That only adds up to 1785Kcal. And you don't need that much protein. Could lower by about 70g and shift them into carbs.

adds up to 1850 to be honest, and removing 70 would be under my bodyweight(160pounds)

77 x 4 = 308
223 x 4 = 892
64 x 9 = 576
Total = 1776
