    Increase protein by how much?

    Hello, I'm going to bulk in a few weeks and want to walk around at 10 more lbs than I do now (I'm lean currently, and yes I'll be in gear for both phases). Bulk phase then cut phase during spring 2019. Anyways, how much protein should I add to 1. Add 10lbs of muscle and 2. Maintain that during and after the cut phase? I already know how my body responds to carbs and fats too, don't need much help there. I'm thinking instead of 12oz egg whites in the morning, go with 16. And instead of 9.5-9.75 oz of meat, go with 10-10.1 oz for my real meals which I'm having 3 times a day (so a total of .75-1.5 more oz a day). I'm getting in 6 total meals a day btw. Do you think by increasing the egg whites and oz of meat slightly by those numbers, will achieve what I'm trying to do?

    How your body responds to carbs and fats will change depending on how much protein you use, so just keep that in mind. That said, I would stick with at least 1g of protein per lb of lean body mass. No more than 2. Cant say exactly without working with you and watching how you respond and adjusting but it will be somewhere in that range. Then adjust the other macros to reach your goals.
