    Heavy Lifting and calories/macros

    I'll try to keep it simple. I want to build muscle now that I'm at a normal weight. I am doing NerdFitness barbell training 5x5 three days a week and very light jogging on the treadmill 3x a week. According to my TDEE I need 2200 calories. Right now I eat about 1600 calories.

    2200 calories is a TON of food for me and I'm a bit overwhelmed. If I eat 1g protein per lb of lean body mass it equals out to roughly 100g or 400 calories, 100g carbs takes up another 400 calories...so that leaves 1400 calories for fat? O.o I can't be doing this right.
