    Hi everyone,

    Please I need some advise on my protein macro.
    Here are my stats:

    Age: 31
    Weight: 130lbs
    Height: 5'5"

    Based on my TDEE results, my daily calorie maintenance is 2,692 (Bulking; 3-5days/week exercise).
    I believe I have an Ectomorph body type, which made me to choose higher carb diet.

    Carb 50% - 337g
    Protein 30% - 202g
    Fat 20% - 60g

    Based on these results, I have to take 202g per day which is way higher from the usual advise of 1g per 1lb body weight (130lb = 130g protein).
    My question is, is it okay to consume this high protein daily?

    Thank you.

    Yes and you can probably take in more just fine. How strong are you?

    Stick to that eating scheme and lift and recover right, I doubt you'll be 131 for long anyway man.
