    Smile Bulk Meal Plan

    Hey so i’ve planned to start working out right when the gyms open back up. When it comes to nutrition, I’m kind of a newbie. I’ve calculated my TDEE and added 500 calories which in total is 3,298 cals. I weigh 168 pounds at 5’11” and planning to be on a bulking phase. My question to all of this is how do I make like a meal plan to add up to all my macros and calories in a day. I don’t really want to wing it and hopefully it adds up to the amounts each day.

    Are you a lifting newbie too? If so, I'd suggest eating at maintenance while you learn the lifts and get into the groove - if you add calories but don't work out effectively there's a good chance you'll just get fat.

    Go to the nutrition forum and read the stickies there - start with this one.

    Go to an app like My Fitness Pal and create a free account and use it to log your food - it will do the calculations for you and if you are accurate in measuring your foods (weigh it with scales) it will do a pretty good job. You can try out different food combinations that you like and it will show you the calories and macro splits, over time you will come up with your own meal plans that suit your tastes.

    plus his TDEE calculations might be overestimates, causing him to gain fat even faster if it's actually a 700-800 surplus

    OP, figure out your "real" TDEE and learn the lifts before jumping straight into eating 3,2k calories per day

    Yes, don't rely on calculators. Start off conservatively. Perhaps run 2800. Chances are you will still gain muscle even if it's not a surplus - so don't worry about that.
