I have always had high metabolism so it has always been a little tougher for me to gain weight. That and I am 6'5" and have been skinny my whole life. My freshman year in college I was only 175 pounds. Now a few years later I PR'ed my weight today at 224 pounds.

Anyway, I decided to bulk after my GF made subtle hits that I looked like I had lost some muscle. I most likely did because my bench and some other lifts declined a bit. So I outlined a plan for myself and it is as follows.

*Caution this is definitely *NOT* clean eating and it is just to get the most calories in my system for the cheapest price*

8:00 AM - wake up: 16 OZ milk + 1 scoop nitrean (400 cal/40G protein)
9:30 AM - Breakfast: 2 BE&C biscuits from MCD's (844 cal/30g Protein)
11:30 AM: 16 OZ milk + 1 scoop nitrean (400 cal/40G protein)
1:30PM: 3 dollar menu sandwiches Wendys(1080 cal/45g protein)
3:30PM: PB&J sandwich(500 cal/30g protein)
6:30PM before gym: maybe a scoop or two of peanut butter (200 cals/? protein)
9:00PM: 16 OZ milk + 1 scoop nitrean (400 cal/40G protein)
10:30PM: 2 pieces of chicken and some pasta (500 calories/46g protein)

Total is between 4300-4500 calories and between 250-260g protein

I started this a little over a week ago and I went from 219 pounds to 224 pounds. Granted I would imagine some of that is water weight/fat weight but I literally did not gain or lose one pound in 8 months before this so its nice seeing the scale actually move.

Its a relatively cheap bulk and I will do it until I can maintain a steady 230 pounds thats not water weight...then take a month or two off and then do it again to 240.

Also, Nitrean tastes AMAZING with milk.

While I am myself a longtimer user of the "dirty bulk," I must ask -- where are your vegetables??

I am going to move this to diet/nutrition, but keep the discussion going.

You're right I should definitely eat some veggies but im pretty lazy with that....Right now I supplement by taking 12 greens+/day.

Sounds like you did well in the eating department dude. Gaining weight certainly can be a full time job for some of us. Keep it up man

Thanks man. You said it...definitely a job. People are probably like "well I wish I could want to gain weight instead of losing it". I think both are equally difficult to do. Id rather have to lose weight because at least my wallet would be a bit fatter.
