If you enjoy eating the stuff then go ahead.

As long as you're in calorie surplus, you'll prolyl gain at least some fat. Unless your metabolism is sky high.

Nuts are great. Calorific too, so if getting all your cals down is hard, nuts are a good choice.

Certain fruits are great.

Look for high water, high fibre content fruit like apples, berries (all kinds - blueberries, strawberries etc..), grapes, oranages, grapefruits etc...

They're full of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and fibre. Great foods. Their sugar content is negible.

There's not really anything wrong with other fruits either, except for high carb densities which may cause havoc on certain types of diet and/or if you're cutting on a certain type of diet, but why are restricting carbs to below 200g?

Are you seriosly trying to gain muscle mass at only just over 2000 cals per day? By the way, if you're keeping carbs down (as you mentioned you were) you need to increase fat intake. Plus you need to have way more high GI carbs in your post WO shake.

I'm with Clark, if you're dropping carbs that low, bump fat WAY up...in my opinion you should eat more carbs like yams, oatmeal, whole grain bread, etc. I don't recall reading how much you weigh, but 2100 cals is pretty weak for a bulk of any kind. You've gotta tell us your weight so we can evaluate that diet there.

1) Breakfast cereals (convenient high-calorie food)
2) Bagels (versatile)
3) Bran muffins (a mass builder with fiber)
4) cream of rice cereal (extremely easy to digest)
5) mashed potatos (strong insulinogenic carb)
6) white rice with raisins (nonfilling high-glycemic carbs)
7) pasta (condensed source of carbs)
8) fat-free pop-tarts (portability)
9) fig newtons (high in carbs and fiber)

Also, dont forget about the usual: oatmeal and brown rice.

TripleP I believe when he said "bulking foods" he was referring to foods that would make him more muscular, not a fat mess.

LOL, this board is getting more and more interesting characters.

food doesnt make you fat - eating more calories than your body can handle will though.

believe it or not (ripley) - you CAN get "fat mess" by eating just chicken, eggs, tuna rice and oatmeal.:disagree:

I Drink a Half Gallon of 1% milk a day (about 2 liters). It's great for adding calories to a bulking diet IMO.

It looks good to me, although the sliced ham thats in one of your meals has more fat than that I believe. And to answer your question about the sugar in the milk, while your eating 500+ calories over you'd never notice the difference, splurge away on it, drink yer 5 cups! It's good for you!
