Looks good IMO. Might think about dropping the protein a little and throwing in some more healthy fats.

too much protein before bedtime i know, should i move the cottage cheese to meal 5 or lower the ounces of fish?
I wouldn't move the cottage cheese to meal 5. It is casein protein and digests the slowest, it will help you stay anabolic while you're fasting. :) I would lower the amount of cod and increase fat intake before bed.


How about removing the kashi and adding 1 more cup of soy milk (boost the fat a bit and lower the carbs)??
I'm not familiar with kashi. Is it a lower or higher GI carbohydrate? It's your choice, but if it's higher I would ditch it.

Overall I really like your diet! You have all of your bases covered well, even your EFAs and fiber intake! My only suggestion is that you have a look at this (http://www.abcbodybuilding.com/magazine/windowofopportunity.htm) article.

Nice job buddy!

welcome to the world of hibernating bear metabolisms. i can bulk at 3000 cals - and currently maintain 174lbs with 2500-2700. i guess the main reason i haven't hit 180 yet is that i don't have the stomach capacity for 3200+ cals a day. blehck!

anyways - that was off topic, but thanks for listening.

Have another 250-500 calorie meal. You'll gain 0.5-1 pound per week. :)

Hey Franks, are you taking fish oil or flax? That would be a good way to get some extra fat in your diet, and also, as Bradley said, get those healthy fats.

Sounds fine to me.
