Hi Shelby,

i stopped gaining weight and therefore increased all my calories on all days very slightly by 100 calories.

Since i have to be careful not to gain fat and i try to gain lean mass primarily.

However, since my carbs were already pretty high, i increased every macronutrient by 5-10g. Is that a good way? What is your opinion on my macronutrient distribution?

I went from:

-Lower body: 3500cal, 365g Carb, 310g Pro, 90g Fat
-Upper body: 3300cal, 315g Carb, 310g Pro, 90g Fat
-"Light"/Assistance day: 3100cal, 265g Carb, 310g Pro, 90g Fat
-Off: 2900kcal 120g Carb, 300g pro, 135g Fat

And now i am at:

-Lower body: 3600kcal, 375g Carb, 315g Pro, 95g Fat
-Upper body: 3400kcal, 325g Carb, 315g Pro, 95g Fat
-Assistance-day: 3200kcal, 290g Carb, 310g Pro, 90g Fat
-Off: 2900kcal 120g Carb, 300g pro, 135g Fat

As you see just minor changes, but i rather do it slow but steadily.

Thanks a ton, you are an incredible help!

That's fine for now but if you need to increase again, I'd keep protein and fat where they are and just increase carbs.
