    Need help! 40/40/20 ratio

    Looking to put on weight at a slow pace .5lb a week, I've come across a few forums about the 40/40/20 ratio and I am quite intrigued, the problem I am having is making it happen. I've tried it but failed! To gain .5 my daily estimate is 2800kcals, I need help with it. I'll start by the protein I like! Eggs, Tuna, Chicken, Greek Yogurt. That's all I can really think of from the top of my head. Carbs I like - Bread, Beans, Pasta, Bagels, Rice. Fats - Butter, Cheese.

    Stats - 149lbs 12% Body Fat 5"11

    Do not use ratios. Hit protein minimum of .7g per pound and fat minimum of .4g per pound; from there fill remaining calories as you like with carbs/protein/fat. Carbs have no minimum, exceeding minimums for fat/protein is fine.

    Eat whatever foods you like.

    All in moderation.

    Pretty sure you know the answer to this but if you don't, try to eat a well balanced diet but don't fall into the trap of good or bad foods.
