How many GRAMS of carbs and fat do you guys try to get in per meal? not per day, but per meal. if you cycle bulk/cut phases, give per phase please...this has been plaguing me forever. i hear from one source that only protein builds muscle and that we dont need fat or carbs, i hear from another that carbs and protein builds muscle together, and the same with fat, and, etc etc. i am very confused about how much to get in per meal.

im pretty squared away with the protein, i try to get in up to 60 grams per meal, sometimes less. but i hear that its good to do about 40 grams of carbs and 15 grams of fat. Keep in mind that im natural and i dont really do any cardio.

thanks for all the help, i will be glad when im no longer confused.

I usually get in 40-50g of carbs per meal. Over 5-6 meals, that's 250-300g of carbs per day. I am not cutting or bulking at the moment. Just cruising. With fats, it's up and down. I really don't count the fat I get. I just make sure I get a serving 3 meals a day. I try to take in 30g of protein per meal as well.
