I'm 6'7" ish, 195ish, starting with a 4750 calorie bulking diet. I'm following John Berardi's ideas on meal combinations, so I only have Protein+Fat meals, with (ideally) < 10g of carbs, or Protein+Carb meals with (ideally) < 10g of fat. With that in mind, here's what I've got:

Breakfast:

3 whole eggs
3 egg whites

273 calories, 28.65g protein, 15.03g fat, 3.0g carbs

AM Snack:

6 fish oil caps
1 serving ON 100% Whey powder
2 teaspoons flax oil

260 calories, 23g protein, 16.5g fat, 5g carbs

Lunch:

1/2lb extra lean ground beef
6 tsp mild taco seasoning

473.6 calories, 43.25g protein, 26.43g fat, 12g carbs

PM Snack:

1 banana
3 servings grapes
2 apples
1 pear
8 ounces skim milk + 1 serving ON 100% Whey powder
3 ounces baby carrots
1 cup cherry tomatos

773 calories, 38.5g protein, 6.44g fat, 164.5g carbs

Workout:

1 serving ON 100% Whey powder
6 oz skim milk
8 oz gatorade

223 calories, 29.3g protein, 1.83g fat, 24.5g carbs

Post Workout:

1 serving ON 100% Whey powder
6 oz skim milk
8 oz gatorade

223 calories, 29.3g protein, 1.83g fat, 24.5g carbs

Dinner:

2 pieces chicken
6 oz pasta

1050 calories, 92g protein, 17g fat, 129g carbs

Late Snack:

60 grams Cheerios
8 oz skim milk
1 cup oatmeal
2 slices of whole wheat toast
1/4 cup raisins

867.3 calories, 34.02g protein, 11.55g fat, 156.6g carbs

Before Bed:

1 serving Micellar Matrix Casein protein
4 slices whole wheat bread
4 slices turkey
8 oz skim milk

578 calories, 63.4g protein, 7.44g fat, 66g carbs

Totals:
4721.9 calories
381.42g protein
104.05g fat
585.1g carbs
46.34g fiber

Anyone have any advice or thoughts?

I personally might increase the calories for breakfast, specifically carbs, and the same for post workout. Other than that, it looks decent.

Are you gaining?

Definately do a protein+carb meal in the morning, and around you're workouts. Personally that "PM Snack" looks like a good breakfast to me, so you might want to switch that around.

I would also try to go for more protein+fat meals in the evening/night.
