ok right now I am 5'8 160 and I just want to bulk up. Here's a mock diet I just put together:

Breakfast:
2 boiled eggs
1 cup cooked oatmeal w/ 1tsp honey
12 oz milk w/ 1/3 cup WPC (23g protein)
2 tsp natty PB

Lunch:
1 chicken breast
1 cup brown rice
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts
2 tsp olive oil

Pre-workout:
1/3 cup WPC mixed in water
1 banana

Post-workout:
shake consisting of 2/3 cup WPC (46g protein) and 1/4 cup dextrose (57g high GI carb)

Dinner:
This is always gonna be different everyday, but my family always eats healthy.




So in total, this diet (minus whatever caloric intake I get from dinner) is 31% fat, 36% carbohydrates, and 33% protein. Total caloric intake is 2671 calories. 215 grams of protein.

According to the 18-22 x BW rule, I would need about 3000 calories. I am sure I can get around 600-800 calories from dinner, so that should put me right at 3500.

What would you guys alter? suggestions? thanks!

I would take out the 2 boiled eggs and slip in 8 fried eggs cause i like em :)
2 cups oatmeal

2-3 chicken breats :D
1 cup of peanuts!!

His calories are already where they should be though. That proposed diet looks pretty good to me.

Blingmeter, you must understand, I have to be practical here. As awesome as it would be to reap the benefits of 3 chicken breasts, I could not afford that, nor could I even eat that much lol.

Also, what are your guys thoughts on the 30% fat content of this diet? Is that too much?

30% is fine and is a good percent of where your fat should be... :)

I'd recommend a couple of fish oil capsules everyday as well. Good stuff.
