It looks fine. Others will give you more detailed advice. My advice to ANYONE gaining weight is to eat. If you ever get hungry, you're not eating enough.

As for your choices, they look fine. Get some variety. After 2-3 days, you're never gonna want to eat chicken again.

Beef
Peanut Butter
Milk
Pork

Looks good for the most part, but you will want to change it up as RhodeHouse said.

Out of curiosity, any reason you're going with Basmati rice? I know that around here, that stuff's pretty expensive as compared to regular long grain rice.

When you actually start, measure what you're eating and track it. The standard is FitDay (www.fitday.com). That way, you can get some numbers to work with. If you don't gain or gain too fast, you can actually see which way to adjust it.

The only thing I'd suggest is make sure your post workout drink is taken within 45 minutes of the end of your session. The composition of it looks good, though you probably don't actually need 40g of protein right then. Won't make that much of a difference overall except when having to buy more whey.

Looks alright that mate, main thing I would add is to eat fresh fish and/or supplement with fish oils so to bump your ω3 intake.


Peanut Butter
Useful for increasing fat intake, but not a staple item by any stretch of the imagination.

^ Very rich in omega 9, not needed.

Source fats from red meat, olive oil, fish, maybe flax, coconut oil, so on.

Don't get me wrong, it has its place and I like the stuff, but it isn't needed.

Not needed, right. Good on a bulk? Hell yeah
