Default Macronutrient Percentages

I did a search and was unable to locate what I was looking for.

What is the recommended percentage breakdown for macronutrients?

I have not ate dinner yet, so these figures are without that added in.

grams cals %total
Total: 3974
Fat: 191 1719 43%
Sat: 71 640 16%
Poly: 21 193 5%
Mono: 85 767 19%
Carbs: 402 1579 40%
Fiber: 8 0 0%
Protein: 168 671 17%
Alcohol: 0 0 0%

How does this look and what should be adjusted on it? If I have the choices I think I will for dinner .... here is how it will look.

grams cals %total
Total: 4780
Fat: 218 1961 41%
Sat: 80 719 15%
Poly: 27 244 5%
Mono: 95 855 18%
Carbs: 468 1818 38%
Fiber: 14 0 0%
Protein: 241 965 20%
Alcohol: 0 0 0%

Trying to bulk. It is really hard to get the numbers perfect on the trash food that they feed us in the chow hall here. Once I actually get overseas, it will be much easier to control because they have several different choices whereas right now we have 2 main line choices and 2 fast food type choices (grilled cheese or corndog)

I would wait until you get overseas to bulk if you can't get enough protein where you're at. Everybody is different but I know if went above maintence with 20 percent protein my gains wouldn't be lean.
