Can you tell me if my diet is any good? I am a 27 year old male, 170 lbs, and trying to bulk using the MAX OT program. I am new to all this so any help would be greatfully received!

Meal 1 (6:30 am) Protein shake with a pint of skim milk (442 calories, 66g of protein, 33g carbs, 3g fat)

Meal 2 (9:30 am) Muesli with pint of skim milk (332 cals, 21g protein, 54g carbs, 2.3g fat)

Meal 3 (12:30pm) Low fat Mac Cheese with a can of tuna mixed in. Bread roll with half a tub of cottage cheese. (701 cals, 67g protein, 80g carbs, 13.5g fat)

Meal 4 (4:30pm) Bread roll with half tub of cottage cheese, pint of skim milk. (428 cals, 37g protein, 60g carbs, 4g fat)

Meal 5 (PWO 7:30pm) Protein Shake with pint of skim milk (442 calories, 66g of protein, 33g carbs, 3g fat)

Meal 6 (9:30pm) Turkey, Oven chips (645 cals, 73g protein, 60g carbs, 6g fat)

11:00pm Low fat Weight Watcher dessert (90 cals, 4g protein, 15g carbs, 3g fat) I know I shouldn't but at only 90 cals, it's not going to kill me.

This gives me in total: 2990 cals, 330g Protein, 322g Carbs, and 32g of fat.

Thanks for your help.

looks good, if you aren't gaining you might want to up the calories some... also maybe up the fats with some flax/fish oil/nuts...

thats a lot of protein
and not much fat.
I'd boost the fat up to 60-110g (mostly efa's)
and drop the proteins down to 170-220g

You could also have better carb sources in there (oats, brown rice, yams, fibrous veggies), although the ones you've included are acceptable.

In my opinion you'd be better off putting meal 2 where meal 1 is. It's personal preference really, but I believe you should be eating whole foods rather than a shake for your first meal.

Good point Dirt, I agree.
