Keeping protein at the same level, and just doing whatever I want with carbs and fats. If I have a day where I want to eat more fatty foods, I can. Other days I may feel more carbalicious. Most of the time I'll just be eating more carbs than before, I already get a decent amount of fat.
For now the type of foods I'm eating will basically stay the same, I'll just get to eat more of it. So instead of eating one Quest bar, I might get two, or more dark chocolate raisins or two smoothies instead of one or some combo of those three. We're only talking about 40-50 grams, so it's not like I can add a couple slices of pizza but it is certainly easier to make foods like pizza fit if I plan for it. Like the other day, I had a strawberry protein smoothie for lunch and one big meal at dinner. I had two big slices of pepperoni pizza, a chicken parm sandwich and a pound of lamb meat, it all "fit".
Been around 2100 calories and about 180-190 grams of carbs the last several days (up from 140), holy moley, I felt the difference in today's workout, felt really good, lots of energy. The point of all this, keeping track, is to be flexible, so I'm not trying to hit these numbers exactly, just trying to be in the ball park.
