thats a bit sloppy for me bulking, when i bulk i dont go that high with the carbs because i end up bloated and puffy. but your protein looks good is the fat mostly good fat or animal fat. i would try and make it good fat and lower your carbs a bit, but its your choice if it works for you and you dont get fat good luck

I'm definitely ecto so the fat and carbs don't really get me fat. I am gaining slowly, my strength is up as well. The junk food mostly helps keep my sanity. I could probably cut some of the junk out and sub in some cottage cheese or something like that.
A lot of the fat comes from eggs. The rest is from the fish and grape seed oil used to bake the fish.
I do feel a little bloated most of the time. I don't think I've ever done a diet with lower carbs, maybe I'll try it sometime and see if I can still gain.

Instead of ordering online. Just go to Sams club if there is one near you and get your liquid egg whites. I usually alternate between liquid and actually cooking my eggs. Reason being when bulking you're adding a lot of extra cals and leaner bulking foods and you want to stretch out your stomach so you can get used to eating a TON of food. Some bloat comes with the territory, but you get used to it

If you are an ecto you may need more carbs and I would probably bring that protein down a bit.The Strength Guys Nutrition Coach/ Follow us on Facebook! or Twitter @TheStrengthGuys NTBM Representative 1-631-443-4461/data10=10% off/ PM me wiith questions!

i was doing lots of raw eggs for awhile..for its simplicity!
problem: sometimes all the eggs would come back up (puked them out)..i think digesting them sometimes doesnt work to well when there raw.

I usually eat more than what's listed but this is the base I try to get in everyday. I usually eat more junk fOod than what is listed. On weekends we usually go out for sushi or steaks also.

I have subbed egg whites for one of my whole egg meals to bring the fat down a little. I am trying to eat more carbs.
On my first bulk,(prior to my neck injury) I was getting about 600 grams of carbs a day. It worked but really jacked up my metabolism to much. I was sweating a lot and always hot ( not sick just jacked up feeling ). So I decided to bring it down some. It probably is to low now. Maybe I'll add some more oatmeal or something else.

Keeping your fats high is alright, as the body needs a certain ammount of fats to produce hormones. Just try to make sure the fats you are taking in are good fats for the most part. Saturated fat in moderation is fine. Just going by your avi, im assuming you dont have a hard time staying lean. If thats te case I dont see a problem with adding in some pasta in place of the rice for some meals, to get the extra carbs/calories.Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever.

arms/any lacking areas
I know my macros aren't typical ecto bulk, but I'm trying something different for awhile. Seems to be working for now.
