Hi
I'm bulking at the moment at 3000kcal per day. (300 on top of TDEE)
My split is carbs 375, fat 100, protein 150.
Everyday I'm ending at around carbs 275, fat 110, protein 170
Should I try to add more carbs to my diet or is it fine?

The question is are you bulking or not? also is it a clean bulk or a dirty bulk and is it fat or muscle you are adding?

Trying to add muscle, and going for a clean bulk.

If you're still hitting your calorie target by eating more protein and fat to compensate for the lesser amount of carbs, you're good to go. The only exception to this might be if you find your energy level throughout the day to be reduced when eating less carbs. In that case, bump them back up.

How long have you been running this diet?

Protein and fat are the critical two sides of the triangle. Carbs are the third leg and are a matter of rounding out your diet and hitting your overall target cals. Give it time. Adjust as needed to meet your strength gain targets.

Doesn't really matter, unless you're not hitting your daily caloric goals. (using the kcals for protein/fat)
