October 29 I'm gonna start bulking for a 10 week phase. I'm going to shoot for around 1-1.5 lb gain / week tops.
I've started my cals off at 2900, and will progress 300cal every week I gain under 1lb. I want minimal fat gain with this diet.

Meals 2 and 6 I have to eat out of town everyday.

Here is what it looks like:

Meal 1: 1 Bagel (216,43,8,1)
6 Egg Whites (100,0,21,0)
2 Whole Egg (150,2,14,10)
1 slice Cheddar Cheese (79,1,6,5)

Calories = 545
Carbs = 46g
Protein = 49g
Fat = 16g

Meal 2: 1 can Tuna (135,0,30,1)
26g Almonds (151,5,5,13)

Calories = 286
Carbs = 5g
Protein = 35g
Fat = 14g

Meal 3 (pre workout): Meal 4: 2/3 cup Dry Oats (175,40,6,1)
1 tsp Peanut Butter (50,1,2,4)
1 scp Protein Powder (58,2,10,1)
3/4 cup Cottage Cheese 1%(150,10,23,2)

Calories = 433
Carbs = 53g
Protein = 41g
Fat = 8g

Meal 4 (post workout): 1 Myoplex (280,24,42,2)
50g Dextrose (200,50,0,0)
5g Creatine

Calories = 480
Carbs = 74g
Protein = 42g
Fat = 2g

Meal 5: 5oz Salmon (256,0,33,11) or Steak at the same calories
1/2 cup Brown Rice (110,23,3,1) or Sweet Potatoes at the same calories

Calories = 366
Carbs = 23g
Protein = 36g
Fat = 12g

Meal 6: 5oz Chicken (231,0,41,6)
3/4 cup Brown Rice (165,35,5,1)

Calories = 396
Carbs = 35g
Protein = 46g
Fat = 7g

Meal 7: 1 Bagel (216,43,8,1)
6 Egg Whites (100,0,21,0)
1 Whole Egg (75,1,7,5)

Calories = 391
Carbs = 44g
Protein = 36g
Fat = 6g

Today's Totals

Calories = 2900
Carbs = 280g = 40%
Protein = 285g = 40%
Fat = 65g = 20%

Water = 6-8 liters

Extra Supps
5g Creatine (post-workout)
4 Vitamin C pills = 4g / day
1 Vitamin E pill = 400 IU / day
1 Calcium pill = 650 mg / day


My diet will be like that 6 out of 7 days / week. 7th day will be a cheat day where anything and everything goes. :micro:

any thoughts or suggestions? thx.

when I cut I never eat carbs before bed. Originally, I was to have meal 2 (the tuna and almonds) which has no carbs for my last meal of the day but I now have to be out of the house for meals 2 and 6 until the end of november, so I gotta eat something I can bring with me.

So since I love eggs on a bagel, I figured it wouldn't hurt to have them as my last meal of the day. Maybe the raised insulin and the great protein source of eggs will help me stay in a positive nitrogen balance while I'm sleeping.

Whats your opinions on that. Carbs before bed or not while bulking? remember I'm trying to gain minimal fat.

I like to have a drotein/fat meal before bed w/ low carbs but if your schedule doesnt allow it and you are not overly sensitive to carbs you should be ok while bulking.

If the glycogen stores are full,then all the carbs eaten will be stored as fat.Period.It's not an insulin resistance -or whatever- factor.
