Hello all:

Without boring all of you in too much detail, I am a newbie that is struggling to add mass with my current diet. I have educated myself fairly well on both the training and diet aspects of bodybuilding and for the most part, have been following a clean diet. Since my workouts seem to be strong, I believe the problem must obviously lie within my diet. I have been following this diet (posted below) for about a month now, and I don't seem to be seeing much success or progess in the way of muscle mass gains, only slight bodyfat increases it seems. How is that possible? Please critique my meal plan so that I may figure what I'm doing incorrectly. Thank you to all in advance.

It looks like you're getting enough protein. A way to stack your calories is have you seen those fruit pies at convenience stores? they're around 99 cents for one, there's a couple different brands, and the chocolate ones have 530 calories, the fruit ones have 470-480 cals. Also, one whopper from burger king has 700 calories, a macho beef burrito from del taco has over 1100 calories. The whopper and burrito are also very high in protein, but for the most part with some moderation of things like that you should bring your caloric intake to at least 4000/day. You should start gaining with a diet like that. Also, do you regularly have caffeine or alcohol?

If you're not gaining, eat more, simple as that.
