nutrition q's

Hey guys, I am new here and I was just curious about nutrition. I eat only healthy things, I try to get double my bodyweight in protein each day and I eat things like tuna,eggs,peanut butter,chicken,lean meats,whole wheat protein breads,protein bars,milk,vegetables and fruits. I eat about 2200 to 2500 calories per day(2200 on weekdays, 2500 weekends) with high protein, medium carb, low fat. I weigh 135 pounds at 5 foot 9 inches so yes im very lean. Does this sound fine? My caloric intake? How do you guys eat, maintenance calories or do you guys just eat and not really think about it?

Personally, I think counting calories will drive you insane. You're clearly eating the right things and if your really training, it will all help. I like to eat frequently throughout the day

gj eating healthy. You need more calories, lift heavy with low reps.
