do you have a more specific number?

for example, for me i have roughly 3000 calories a day with 100 grams of fat (30%).

no but I am taking 2.5 tablespoons of Udo's choice=28 fat grams
1/2 avocado
1-2oz. almonds

I do not count calories. I have been lifting for over 10 years. I think my protein has always been close to 1-1.2 gram per pound but my carbs and fats are likely not high enough.

Should I have 3-4 tblespoons of Udo's to go to 42 to 56 grams of fats

will this help bulk

I am now consciosly seeking 3000-3500 calories a day with a push at times to 4000.

Other non-good fats are less than 10% of diet.

not at all, I bang down about 4 tbsp. flax oil, 1 tbsp. hemp oil, 1/4 almonds and salmon almost daily... very very good for you!

are they good for adding muscle though. Or are they just good for the heart?

4 tablespoons +hemp oil. I am wondering how much you weigh and bfat so I can compare if I may need the same as you ironplug.

I weigh 242 at around 10% bf, but I work these fats into my diet within my daily calorie range, I am cutting now, so I keep my calories close to my BMR which is 2800. I am not an ecto...
On non-workout days I usually follow a 40-30-30 diet, while workout days are 40-35-25, being higer in carbs on that day.

Try increasing your cosumption slowly staying within your calorie limits, replacing the oils for carb sources not protein. See how it goes, some do better than others, for me it has a lot of added benifits that I notice, a lot more I'm sure that I'm not even aware of.
