Re: I have failed at getting ripped for 5 years..please help!

I weigh the same as you and I have to eat 2500-3000 calories just to maintain my weight. Here's what I've found works for me:

Around 50% of calories from fat, 30-35% from protein, and the rest from good carb sources like fruits and veggies.

Eat paleo + bacon. Try starting off with a 30 strict paleo challenge - no cheating - and then add stuff back in if you still want to.

Don't cut the damn fat off your damn meat. Eat grassfed meat. Get sugar out of your life. Sleep well, train hard 3 days per week MINIMUM. Do something every day, even if it's just a walk or dynamic stretching.

If you eat paleo, your portioning and macronutrient proportions will work themselves out. You can measure and weigh all you want, but I've found that this only screws up my recovery and I get sick. If you only have good whole foods available to you, your body will choose what it needs.
