The best question is the simplest - are you gaining weight while putting on an acceptably low amount of fat? It looks like you have largely good food choices (whole grains, veggies, lean protein, etc.) and if you're gaining muscle mass without turning into a blimp, keep it up! Just judging by eyeballing, however, unless you're like 130 lbs you probably won't be gaining a ton on that. Ever tracked before? www.fitday.com

Eat some fast food if you're gaining weight.

Structure of it looks fine. If you don't gain, eat more of it.

Ya, I have been so busy over the holidays there have been numerous times were just packing in 1500+ cals has been necessary to get above maintenance. When bulking you do what you have to. If you can eat enough like you listed above... great. If you find your not gaining weight, don't have an appetite, or can't get in enough throw in some goodies.

Hey, good point. I hadn't actually calculated the calories on the last one; it came out to be like 2500cals. With revisions, this one has 3421 total calories. I weight 185lbs, should I be able to make good gains on this or should I try to kick the calories up even more?
