I know everyone hates these, but I would like some feedback on my bulking diet. My trainer advised me on this, and I'm still a beginner so I'm not hung up on doing everything perfect. I'm 5'7" and weigh 159 lb.

Breakfast: 4 egg whites, bread and cheese, glass of milk.

11 O'Clock: Pasta (no sauce), Beer (non-alcoholic).

2 O'Clock: 2-3 pieces of chicken fillet, bowl of rice, yogurt, fresh vegetables.

5 O'Clock: workout

6 O'Clock: 4 egg whites, Two potatoes, a banana, a small protein shake.

Dinner: Can of tuna, lettuce salad (without sauce).

Before bed: fresh fruit, vegetables.

The type of food you have selected is quality, but i would say add more food, that doesnt seem like very many calories for someone who is trying to bulk (and i understand that different people respond differently). Maybe some peanut butter and another protein shake before bed or when you wake up...

Points taken. I do feel a bit empty-stomached (not hungry, just not full) before bed.

Before bulking, I used to think it was easy (who doesn't want to pig out, especially if you have no problem with low-fat foods?) but now I realize it's actually a very hard thing to do, psychologically.

That plan looks interesting, David. I'm an oatmeal freak :)

my suggestion is that always eat light food in the night.. really.. the best time to make the body eat more is in the day time.. the liver wants to rest in the night time.. do not over burden it.. in the day time however it is always asking for more and more..

take small meals spread throughout the day..

If you want nutrients to reach your muscles while they are recovering, eating a good size snack before bed is optimal. You need to feed your body day and night.
