Go to www.atlargenutrition.com and read the article on gaining mass. It will give you all the information you need.

Chris, I actually think that's quite a good article. My only criticism is that it seems to portray traditional bodybuilding foods in a bad light. I understand that the point of the article is for people to stop worrying so much about what they eat, and start eating more about how much they eat because this is why they are not gaining. However, I'm a firm believer in that if you were to keep calorie levels constant, eating traditional bodybuilding foods will leave you with a better physique than eating burgers and fries.

The only problem is that the majority of people would find it hard to consume 25 cals/lb bodyweight of "clean" foods...this is a fact I am fully aware of. I just think that the article could of have been made slightly more accurate by pointing out that, IF POSSIBLE, one should try to consume 25 CLEAN cals/lb bodyweight, and that some junk could be thrown in to boost that calorie count to the desired level.

That is when MRP's come in handy.

I agree to an extent Jason, depends on the meal replacement. Some of them are just loaded with simple sugars and a burger might actually be a better choice in this case.

That's why you gotta be selective in your MRP choices. There are good MRP's out there that have little to no sugar, they just won't taste as good.

I don't see how clean calories will leave you with a better body.

Junk food is underrated. Long live KFC.

?? You're kidding right? How about cleaner arteries? Better for your heart? Lower cholesterol levels (LDL)?

1. Could you provide the calorie breakdown in grams of protein, carb, fat

2. I think simplicity is key when you have to eat 6 times a day, and your meals are definately good and simple.

3. Overall the diet looks good...but I don't know how many calories that is. You might want to include some EFAs like flax or fish oil. The diet doesn't contain any fruit or vegetables...I think that fruit and veggies are an important part of any diet, whether cutting or bulking.

4. You may want to include a PWO shake if you can get your hands on some protein powder and dextrose. It's not necessary, but it will provide easy calories.

I don't see any other glaring weakpoints...hope that helped.

here are the caloric breakdowns

meal 1 = 640 cals
meal 2 = 390 cals
meal 3 = 640 cals
meal 4 = 140 + [2 x (whatever pitas are)]
meal 5 = 525
meal 6 = 400

Around 3035 cals are these too many cals for a 5'6 136pound 16 year old???

I dont think so.

16yo have crazy metabolisms. Ontop of that bulking is generally done at about 16-18cal/lb of bodyweight. If you want to bulk good then choose 18. For you that works out at 18 x 136 = 2448 cals. Taking into account your 16 and have an adolescent metabolic rate...3000ish sounds fine. you should gain weight. Infact i recon you might find you need to up it to 3500 before long to keep gaining. Only way to find out is to pick and number, start doing it and then adjust as you gain.
