My goal for calories is approx. 5000 a day when I work out and 4-5000 on the other days. Target protein is 350g (2 x bw), fat is 300g and carb is 225g. I would appreciate any comments on the percentages/quantities I am using as well as the quality of food I am consuming

July 17th - Day 1

167.2 pounds

First ever effort at 5000 calories

here is my break down from Fitday:
