Default Confused with macros

I'm trying to work the macros for an upcoming bulk...but I keep getting the wrong totals... Using an average of 3 different BMR calculators with sendentary activity I need about 2300 calories to maintain my lovely 240Lbs...

When I try to put anything together, I seem to be way high on fat and low on carbs and protein...and of course I can't figure out what to drop and add. I know being a picky eater isn't the best excuse, but I just can't make this work....and it's driving me nuts... Last time I bulked, I got way fatter than I wanted and I'm sure it had something to do with following a meal plan like that...

So what the hell can I eat to do this right? I figure I should shoot for about 3000 cals daily. That would be the same BMR, but with a greater activity multiplier..

Here's an example of what I came up with....this is just an example, but it shows what I would like to get away with. The first things I know to change are losing the bacon and cheese, and upping the red meat @ dinner, and chicken @ lunch....and possibly upping the eggs at breakfast...



Breakfast - 4 Eggs (2 white, 2 whole) 2 slices toast w/Pbutter - 478 Cals, 35g Protein, 28g Fat, 23g Carbs

Snack - 1oz honey roasted peanuts - 160 Cals, 6g Protein, 5g Carbs, 13g Fat

Lunch - 5oz Grilled Chicken, 2 Tbsp peanut butter - 370 Cals, 39g Protein, 20g Fat, 4g Carbs

Snack - 1oz honey roasted peanuts - 160 Cals, 6g Protein, 5g Carbs, 13g Fat

Pre-WO - 3 scoops BC+EAA, VS2 x1, Hemavol, 6 caps C-Bol - 140 Cals, 35g Carbs

Intra - IntraBolic - 30 Cals, 4g Protein, 2g Carbs

PWO - VS2 x1, 2x Syntha-6 w/ 2c water, 6 caps C-Bol - 540 Cals, 44g Protein, 55g Carbs, 12g Fat

Dinner - 6oz lean beef, 1 slice cheese, 2 slices bacon - 435 Cals, 54g Protein, 1g Carbs, 23g Fat

Bedtime - 1 scoop XF UP 2.0 w/ 1c milk - 283 Cals, 11.5g Fat, 17g Carbs, 26g Protein
