I'm sure you are all sick of reading another newbies diet post but the good karma is on it's way to those who help.

I'm 22 6'3 and around 150lbs trying to bulk up. I train what I believe to be hard (started off with body weight exersises and small weights for 2 months and moved onto 5x5 full body workouts) but seem to get caught up in the rights and wrongs of nutrition. Any tips would be great. I'm also trying to stay healthy and heard too much meat is a bad thing?

All rough measurements

Meal 1
Shake
2 cups milk
banana
whey protein (around 30g)
handful of oats
good squeeze of honey
large scoop of natural peanut butter
large scoop icecream
2 fish caps
1 multi vitamin


meal 2
leftovers
usually chicken and pasta, sasauge hotpot...something like that

meal 3
chicken breast
salad or rice with 1 cup brocoli

meal 4
another shake as mentioned before

meal 5
dinner
whatever gf cooks, usually meat and rice or pasta

meal 6
another shake

meal 7 hour before bed
glass of milk
scoop of natual peanut butter


on training days I would replace a meal for 2 recovery drinks (pre and post-workout)

is this a sissy vegans diet or am I getting close to a bulking diet?


Cheers,

Ryann

The quantities are just too vague for us to say.

Only way to know is to try it. If you dont gain then you'll need to add more.

You are having meat three times a day...I would hardly call that vegan. :)

Also, if you are going to drink that many shakes in a day to try and bulk up, they should be meal replacement shakes with more quality calories and a quality protein source. You might want to try Opticen (http://atlargenutrition.com/nutrition_detail.php?products_id=2) from At Large Nutrition (http://www.atlargenutrition.com).

Opticen works and tastes great. I swapped my fast food breakfast to an opticen shake with 16 oz of milk and I gained 10 pounds in 6 weeks.
