I will of course modify this diet as needed, but this is what I intend to start with. I'm just wondering if the p/c/f breakdown is what I need.......and a couple little nitpicking questions.
As far as I can calculate.....I should be getting around 290g protein.....and about 60g fat on this diet. I do not know the how many grams of carbs I am getting (with all the vegetables and stuff).......nor do I know how many calories this is. I'm wondering if I'm eating my fruits at the wrong times of day........and if the quality of my carbs are ok. I am around 280 lbs. 6 feet tall........I need to lose alot of bodyfat, but I don't want to start of by "cutting". I'd rather bulk and go from there. Just wondering what anyone thinks. Thanks alot.

If you are bulking then you definetely need to eat more than what you have listed. Your maintenance calorie intake is probably around 4200 cals a day (15*bw), and you are not getting anywhere near that calorie level with the above diet. The foods you have listed look fine just eat more of them. That looks more like a cutting diet IMO.

Wow....are you serious? I have 7 meals there not even counting the pre and post workout shake. Guess I'll have to add a couple sweet potatos or something...

What does your pre/postworkout shake consist of? You could also increase the amounts of oats you are eating and get some more EFA's in your diet.

Didn't you say that you are cutting in this thread. http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=25144

Also If you want to bulk definiteley add some more carbs to your diet. I would say at least 50% you then don't need as much protein.

Diet looks good, but just make sure that you are getting in adequate calories which is the most important thing.
