Hey guys, I've decided to journal my daily meals during my bulk. A little background info: I'm 5''10 currently 163ish, during my bulk I'm doing Bill Starr's 5x5 program. My goals are listed in my sig and I'm looking to be around 180 by may 2009, the month I graduate college. I started my official bulk Sunday December 8th, 2008.

You need some carbs in there after your workout. I like to get around 100g of carbs and 50g of protein after lifting. One thing that helps me eat more is doing 25-30mins of cardio when I wake up on my off days. I get down 1000 calories for breakfast no problem and just keep going from there.

I probably get close to 50 carbs after lifting. (applesauce = 25, and probably close to 20 with the trail mix). I load up the carbs at dinner with a bowl of pasta and a baked potato. Do you have any other suggestions for quick carbs after lifting?

Not too bad, try some oatmeal or a wheat bagel in there. Milk is really easy to add calories too if your on the go. If me and my buddies stop at sheetz to grab a drink I will get a 32oz milk=520 cals, and 32g protein.

Just to give ya an ex:

My breakfast today..
3eggs & 3 whites
1 wheat bagel w/pb
16oz milk
1 orange

Mid morning..
Oatmeal
banana
1 scoop whey w/milk

For your weight that is a nice bulk and you will be seeing the scale go up next week. I think you need just a little more protein in your diet although I didn't calculate it.

More protein shakes or tuna should do it.

thanks guys for the input. That was my first week of bulking, and it was during finals week so I couldn't really get a meal routine down. I am goin to add more protein, and I know I need more oatmeal. I have it, i just chose to eat eggs in the am, I'll follow your advice and have it as a mid morning snack.

Today was a pretty typical non-lifting day diet. So i decided to check fitday.com to get an approximation on my calorie intake. Everything added up hits: 4,210 (I'd say I'm right at 4,000)!!! That's pretty ridiculous! I should be 175 in no time at all. Hopefully not too fast though.

decided to stop posting my meals for the time being. I have an excellent plan for the amount of food I need to intake in order to gain weight. I have also decided to try and stop binge drinking. I'm in college and I used to do it 2-3 times per week. I am going to try and hold myself under 7-8 beers and see how that works.

How tall are you and do you have any idea of where you are on body fat?
Your meals look like what I might want to model after I feel like I've stripped out my unwanted "bad" weight.

Just curious about if those meals with working out are helping you to get some good muscle weight packed on.
