Looks more like a cutting diet than a bulking diet. Eat more calories man! Looks like alot of protein, which is good, but not much calories. You need alot of calories if you wanna gain weight.

I think it has more to do with portions. If you're not gaining, add 500 calories. Check weekly. Since you're so light, I assume a quick metabolism, so just hit up the food as hard as you can and you'll start putting the weight on.

Just eat more. You are one of those skinny guys that thinks he is eating as much as he can yet doesn't gain weight. Let me let you in on a secret, you have to eat big to get big. You will need to stuff yourself past the point of comfort (don't go too overboard) for a period of time until you expand your stomach enough to allow even more calories. You can't just eat until you are full, you need to eat a little more.

yeah, that is a cutting meal plan....tuna is clean and low calories. Your tuna only has 150 cals per can is why tuna is great for cutting

get calories up and keep them consistant, switch in some extra lean ground beef to get calories up, mix in 1/2 lb ground beef (@500cals).

if your bulking no need to keep your diet extra squeeky clean, you want calories = energy bro!

the key is to weigh yourself once a week, and keep at least a pound a week coming on. If your not gaining or even (heaven forbid) losing weight, you need to eat more.

carbs are not the enemy=
potatoe (@150 cals a potatoe)
black eyed peas (@300 cals a can)
eat your oatmeal (1 serving is @300 cals),
grapenuts (again @300 cals serving)
bagels (@ 250cals per bagel)
broccoli, califlower (@ 100 cals serving)

protein is your friend=
they gots protein pasta you can buy at health stores (@300 cals a serving)
grab your boiled eggs (@70 cals each = 5 eggs in the morning = 350 cals and 35 grams protein)
cottage cheese (@200 cals serving)
beef jerky (@100 calories a bag)
other stuff = salmon, whey protein, protein bars, turkey, chicken
**none of that sandwich meat crap

at 130 pounds you should be eating @2500 cals a day to gain, its not hard to keep track, keep a little journal and write down the amount of clories you eat during the day. That way, you keep track of if you are ahead or behind schedule for daily calorie intake. No need to be a calorie nazi, just a rough estimate is all you need each day....

go ahead and eat junkfood once in a while too, just lay off the pop and chips!

Anything that's low in saturated fats. Well, that was my goal. :)

I say keep eating what your eating (since you have it down and dont have a problem with it) but keep adding more until you start gaining. I suggest adding milk to every meal, and possibly peanuts with the protein shakes (except post workout).
The calorie is king, you just have to eat more than you burn so keep eating until you do.
Get back to us when you start gaining weight, which should be next week.

i'd drop the protien drink and fill that slot with another meal, tub of cottage cheese +tin pineapples and nuts, [cheaper too] same at night maybe tuna in oil or cottage cheese and flax

also bagels are pretty refined carbs something more natural would be better, also not much vegges in that list, use some broccoli or something with that tuna and rice

Milk.......drink milk.

Eat everything.

Kill small animals that happen to wander across your yard and eat them in front of their families.........then eat the family.
