I looked at a sample meal plan but seems like it is low on calories and macros. I lift weights 5/6 days a week and feel like I need more calories because of this. I normally eat high protein. Anyone experienced with this?

I just wish there was a made out meal plan that was easy to do. Coming up with my own meal plans is too hard to do during the school year when I work.
I try to think of it as a temple: grilled meat, veggies, starch for morning and afternoon meals. Layer salads in mason jars work well for lunches as the ingredients stay fresh longer. Pre bag your snacks, nuts, veggie, paleo jerky. Dinner grilled meat and veggies again. I think having time to batch cook is the key. I struggle with this as well as I find when I'm responsible for cooking for other people I eat better quality and quantity.
Get the whole 30 cookbook.
I don't do diets for a specified amount of days, I eat Paleo through the week with few carbs then will allow myself a day off (sometimes even 2!) over the weekend to give myself a break and then I find I look forward to my treat days. If your goal is to lose fat then it's a good option. If u just want a general balanced diet with your training, just download one of the many free apps and track your macros. I too do weight lifting and HIIT training
That's what I want to do. Do like 80/20 paleo. I did want to do strict paleo for at least a month to reset my system before I start adding non paleo foods into my diet.
It's a good way of doing it, I've found it also confuses your metabolism so your body doesn't become complacent with low calorie/low carb foods and I've lost a decent amount and yet still seem to maintain muscle mass
