Breakfast: 5: 30 am
2 servings Wheat pancakes with light honey.
16 Cups orange Juice
4 Large Eggs with Colby Cheese

Snack: 9:30 am
1 Large Apple
1 oz Almonds

Lunch:12:00 pm
This changes but carbs and protein numbers stay the same but heres a sample
2 servings Whole Grain Spagetti Noodles and Scauce and 8 oz Lean Beef, Chicken, Turkey, or Shrimp.
1 Orange

Snack:4:00pm
1 Large Orange
1 oz Peanuts

Post Workout:
1/2 Gallon Skim Milk

Dinner(usually around 9pm)
1 cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
1 Scoop Whey Protein.

Atleast 1 Gallon Water
Creatine Monohydrate
Glutamine
Fish Oil
B6
Multi Vitamin
Milk Thisle

430g Carbs

So roughly 2680 calories not counting fat grams. My lifts have went up and my body weight has went up but I have not really noticed any fat. So I ws just wandering what you guys think.

If you're doing it and it's getting you the results you're after, that's all that matters and anyone else's opinion really doesn't mean a thing.

Do you really drink a gallon of orange juice for breakfast?

I'm guessing your numbers are way off based on your activity level. If you're counting things accurately and you have the detailed #'s post them by meal so we can take a look at it...

Man I am not rying to start a arguement but how you do you know my calories are wrong... The number I posted is without fat grams added so oviously they are low all I figured up is protein and carb calories.

Also how do you know my numbers are off by my activity level.

Sorry bro...read this while I was at work and missed that you weren't including your fat in total calories.

My bad.

If you're getting stronger and gaining weight with adding any significant amount of fat, keep doing what you are doing no matter how the math works out. If your weight and/or strength plateau, add in some calories until you are gaining again. If what you are doing is working, don't worry too much about the numbers right now.

Dawn01-Yeah man I swear every day my diet is something along those lines all day. Drink a 1/2 gallon of milk and sometimes more everyday and sometimes even do a protein drink before bed if I am even slightly hungry before bed.

Holto- No problem thats wat I thought man.
