I think i have a good understand on what i should eat. I know I need to get about 3000calories, ALOT of protien, I shouldnt eat Sat fats, fats are good and I need carbs.

Got a quick question, what should my goal be for carbs?
Like I said, I want to gain weight, gain muscle.

Post up what you eat daily. Post up ingredients if you can
Also, if you can, seperate everything into sections. Like what you eat for Carbs, what you eat for Protiens, Calories, ect

I'll spare you a mean comment about using the search since you're new around these parts, but you can't go wrong in the future running a quick search around here.

That being said, I hope this link helps.

Basically, this is a no-brainer. Eat lots of nutrient-rich, calorically-dense foods, and train like a damn banshee in the gym. You'll get bigger and stronger and reap the benefits of five vegetable servings daily :)

Lean protein, whole wheats/grain, vegetables, and nuts. :drooling:

Have 25%-30% of your total calorie intake come from fat (mostly the unsaturated kind).
Then get 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight.
Whatever calories are leftover after that to fill your daily quota (you mentioned 3000) can come from carbs.

Use the above mentioned link for a list of foods to get each nutrient from.

Why brown bread?

Its not wholegrain? Be carefull,just because it is brown,doen not make it wholegrain.
Brown bread is almost as high on the GI count as white!

How heavy are you? Good for you if you can gain on foods like that. All the fruits and veggies just get in the way of calorie dense foods that help you pack on lbs.

185, just bulked 15 lbs this semester since end of summer. Met my goal of the freshman fifteen! :thumbup:

I eat roughly 3300 cals a day +/- 200. My meals are often and I don't have difficulty eating piles of food and snacking in between-- the trick is just to split up meals. I eat what makes me feel good, which means I have to eat my fruits and veggies.

And I know, 185 is light... but I'm getting there consistently.

Just as fuzz and stump said, a full meal usually hits the spot

Same here, I prefer meals over shakes after a workout.

Consistency is the key word. Keep after it and the weight will grow. Good luck.
