Difficult to say if it's "right" or not (there's really no single "right" way of doing it).

IMO that protein is a bit high. What do you weigh? If you brought protein down a bit you'd have more for carbs.

I'd approach it by working out calories, then setting protein at 1g-1.2g per lb bodyweight. Then divide the rest up between fats and carbs to suit you food preferences/lifestyle. Personally that would mean lower fats, higher carbs for me, but that's just me.

Trial and error really Smiley

^^ What Nic said. Smiley

Are you measuring progress too? You don't want to gain mass TOO quickly, as you'll just end up having to do a longggg ass cut at the end of it. More calories doesn't always mean more muscle. I'd personally aim for a 200-500 calorie surplus depending on personal preference and trial and error.
