Okay, here's my eating for the day. What do ya think?:

Meal 1: Soy protein cereal (or oatmeal) and 1 cup egg whites


snack: protein bar (24g protein)

Meal 2: beef tip roast (not much)/ veggies

Snack: Protein shake (50g protein)

Meal 3: can of tuna on english muffin, 1 oz cheese

snack: peanuts/ glass of milk

Meal 4: 2 chicken breasts/ carrots

Meal 5: cottage cheese (before bed)

I estimate this at about 225 g protein... I'm not terribly concerned about carbs or fat.

What are your goals?

Bulking. I'm was at 172 as of last Monday (I weigh in on Mondays) and I want to be 180 by Sept 1, and I think this is reasonable considering I've gained 2 pounds in the last 1.5 weeks and I just started lifting for mass. I'm not concerned with bodyfat, although I want to avoid putting on excess amounts.

I'm thinking more calories. I think that is at about 2,500, although I usually include a second protein drink at 600 calories... just not today.

Errrm... if you wanna bulk, I suggest you up your carbs... and up them lots. You're definately not getting enough cals on a bulking cycle. If you increase carbs, you'll see more gains, and your workouts will be better.

Btw, you'll need carbs post work out for sure. Perhaps getting a dextrose/maltodextrin mix to go along with a protein shake.

Yeah, today was lower in carbs than usual, but I have a feeling that I don't get enough as it is.

What product would you reccomend as a dextrose/maltodextrin suppliment?

Thanks for your input!

For bulking I would at least add a large potato to your beef meal and 1 or 2 cups of rice to the chicken meal. Once your doing that then you can worry about supps for more carbs.
