Problems with my diet
 
Hey guys. 24 years old here, 6'1", 175 lbs. Currently I am taking in roughly 3800 calories a day. Not sure what my other stats are. Anyways I am not really happy with my current diet plan. I am a vegetarian but not vegan. I am still not that bulked up but the thing that is really concerning me is my fat around my waist. A little to much for my liking. My fat content right now is a little to high at 117 g a day and I would like it under 100 and I figured my other stats were ok. Not sure though. Was thinking I just needed to lower my fat in grams but I can't seem to find a way to do it. I am a hardgainer! My sodium is 5900 mg a day.

It's funny because back when I was eating meat I was pretty bulked up and 190 lbs. But I had much more fat. My macros looked like this:

Calories: 3298
Fat: 70.4
Carbs: 423.8
Protein: 238.6

And now my macros look like this:

Calories: 3887
Fat: 114.6
Carbs: 397.5
Protein: 340

So everything is much higher for the most part aside from carbs. Like I said I was pretty bulked up but just had much more fat around my waist. I am also thinking now my protein content is to high so do you think I should lower it? Because I used to be at 238 and I still had pretty good size. Not sure if it's to much protein now or not. If I do lower it, I can not afford to lose my calories. I need to stick at 3900 or so. I just need help on what to do.

Thanks.

Bulking is going to lead to some fat gain. Don't worry about it. Just lose it when you go on a cut later.
