    Figuring out Macros

    According to a calorie calculator I need 2724 calories to maintain weight. If I add 300 calories for a bulk I am at 3024 calories. At a 40/40/20 split I would have 302 g for carbs and protein and 67 for fat. I have read that you shouldn’t eat more than 1g of protein/1 lbs of body weight. I weigh 210 pounds so that would be 210 g of protein. Do I increase the amount of carbs to compensate for the lower protein? Or throw away the 1g/1p philosophy

    You can increase either carbs or fats in order to reduce protein.

    You certainly do not need 302grams. You'd be more than fine at 200 grams.
    The power of carbs compels me!

    Thats total and complete BS, if you want to eat more protein go right ahead. Its not necessary, but its not going to kill you.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.
