5'7"
158- 161 lbs (flux)

This is my diet as it stands

2 eggs (with yolk) for breakfast
oats + Splenda

Subway lunch
12" wheat bread
chicken/rb/turkey
loads of veggies.

Soup or pasta anytime (not the healthiest but it fills me up at work and its quick and easy to make)

Chicken/steak
Potatoes
Veg


Pasta shells and tuna mix
or
tuna on wheat bread

Protein shake 2x daily on workout days.
with glut and creatine (5g)


well thats what it looks like.

I am trying to gain mass mostly in my chest, as that is the area that troubles me the most.

Thanks

Food choices look acceptable, how many calories and what are the macro breakdowns?

2 eggs isn't very many especially for the first meal of the day, but it depends on how they fit into your total calories for the day.

You can't tell the mass you gain where to go.

Gimp I take them in capsule form daily (they contain no calories, only the fats)

Like all fats they do contain calories, 9 calories per gram.

sorry, i thought the bottle said 0 i have to check when i get home,

I was taking Flax seed oil and that used to give me 144 cal and 14 grams of fat. But i switched to fish capsules because they are easier to take and do

I think what he means here is that your breakfast could use a bit more protein...that's why I said 2 eggs aren't very many. You don't HAVE to add chicken, that's just a high-protein suggestion.

What would be a high protein food that I can take on the road with me?

The eggs cook and eat and leave, I dont get to enjoy them.

So my question is what else can I eat with my breakfast? Remember its gotta be fast and affordable, and i rather not have a shake if possible.

I'd say just add more eggs, that was what I was implying initially.

Depends on how much room you have for more calories. Eggs are something like 70-90 cals/egg (depending on the size), so the calories can add up quickly.

I had 8 eggs AND a chicken breast this morning, but I doubt you'll increase your intake this much all at once.
