So I recently decided to get serious with working out, and as such I'm trying to control what I'm eating. As such, I'm wondering if people could give me some advice.
I'm pretty much exactly 180lbs right now, give or take a pound either way depending on the day and am 6'1". I've gotten myself leaner from working out and eating right; however, now I want to bulk up with muscle. As such, I previously was eating about 2200~2400 calories a day. However, I was told I should be eating about 2600 if I want to get up to my target weight of 220 lbs, from gaining muscle. As such, I'm wondering how much protein, carbs, etc should I be getting each day? Should I eat less protein on days in between my work outs, or more on those days?
As well, I'm wondering if anyone knows good foods for helping get more protein, since I'm finding I only get about 120g of protein a day. Is that enough, or what?
Any answers would be welcome. Thanks.
