I am starting a clean bulk and want some opinions of my diet. I currently am 17, 6'0 and weigh 160lbs. I have no certain weight goal, just want to gain strength and muscle mass. I will be doing Starting Strength as well as Cardio (I want to minimize fat gain, but accept gaining some is inevitable).

Here is a sample day-

8:00AM- Breakfast
Oatmeal
Eggs
Whole Wheat Bread
Peanut Butter
8oz. Fruit Juice
5g Creatine Monohydrate
Fish Oil

10:00AM- Snack (Post Workout on Lifting Days)
1 Scoop Nitrean
Water

12:00PM- Lunch
Turkey
Whole Wheat Bread
Provelone Cheese
Almonds
Cottage Cheese
Vegetables
Fruit
Milk

5:00PM- Dinner
Chicken Breast
Canned Tuna
Whole Wheat Bread
Cottage Cheese
Vegetables
Fruit
Milk

9:00PM- Snack
1 Scoop Nitrean
Milk
Fish Oil

Here are the macros according to Fitday-

3,060 Calories
283.4g Protein
249.2g Carbs
99.6g Fat


My main concern is if I am eating enough. Like I said above, I want to minimize fat gain, but want to see results. I'm not sure what my maintenece is, but I live a fairly active lifestyle. Should I bump my calories up to 4,000+ or just try this for afew weeks and see how it goes?

Thanks for the advice.

You answered your own question. See if you can figure out where.

Bingo. Gaining weight requires far less thought than losing it. It has a wider margin of error. If you're not gaining fast enough, eat more. If you're gaining too fast, eat less.
