Well said by Powerman... Anything with calories.
Avoid saturated fats and you're ok.

Yeah, anything with calories.

If you're a skinny mofo calorie dense foods are a lot better, since you don't have to eat as much.

My grocery list while bulking:

Ground Beef
Steak
Eggs
Tuna
Bagels
N-Large2
12 Grain bread
Mayo

Although it's not really important, I also take creatine, multivitamin/mineral, ECA and (for pre-workout boost). Pretty much all other supps are completely useless when bulking.

Get your 8 hours of sleep every night, more sleep the better.

Although unrelated, how's your training?

An example of one day of my bulking goes like this.

3 MRP with 100 grms of malto with 2 tblespoons of flax oil per shake and 1 cup of natty OJ.

2 10 ounce top sirloin steaks and 300 grms of potatoe salad.

Some garden salad.

4 table spoons of PB.

This equals over 4500 cals.

eat your poo if you want but...

man just eat walnuts all day. THere is no higher, more dense source of energy on this earth ( that is a good whole food). 1/4 cup has over 200 cals and it contains protein, healthy fat, and fibre!

*Looks good.

day 3: squats 3 sets of 6-8 reps
partial rep squats 2 sets 5 reps
Leg curls 3 sets 10 reps
Stiff-Legged Deadlifts 3 sets 8 reps
Calf Raises 5 sets 8-15 reps

*Drop the partials.

Day 5: Deadlifts 3 sets 6-8 reps
BArbell Rows 3 sets 8-10 reps
Seated Dumbell Press 5 sets 5-8 reps
Db Curls 3 sets 6 reps
Hammer Curls 3 sets 10 reps

*I would do chins instead of BB rows, and drop 2 sets off of the DB presses. But, that's just me.

If you aren't progressing you might wanna drop a set off of each exercise, but if you're progressing the routine looks fine.
