Here's my diet for the first day.

10:00am - 3 eggs, Couple pieces of watermelon, full glass of 1% milk

12:00pm - 2 servings of Chicken Breast, couple more pieces of watermelon, full glass of 1% milk

3:30pm - Peanut Butter Sandwich

6:00pm - 2 servings of Chicken Breast, watermelon, Chocolate Powerbar, full glass of 1% milk

8:00pm - Spaghetti, with meat sauce (I'm hoping this is a good choice?), Slice of Cantelope, Salmon Cake

Let me know if you have any suggestions to this. In a week or so, I'll be adding in creatine and whey protein once it's ordered, along with some fish oil once or twice a day.

Let me know what you think! If you see something wrong, please correct me!

Not bad. No reason for the powerbar, eat more real food. The pasta/meat sauce could be good or bad, depends on how its made. Some whole wheat pasta with a quality homemade sauce, would be great. White pasta with a can of store bought meat paste would be bad.

What exactly is a serving on chicken breast? I use to sit down and eat 20-24oz of chicken breast, and thought it was ok because it was healthy food. Fitday everything and see what it comes out to calorie wise.

Yeah the powerbar was basically just a buy at BP when I was getting a little hungry.

Here's the facts on the chicken breast:

Calories: 70
Fat Cal: 15
Total Fat: 1.5g
Trans fat: 0g
Sat. Fat: 0g
Cholest: 40mg
Sodium: 250mg
Total Carb: 0g
Fiber: 0g
Sugers: 0g
Protein: 12g

That's for one serving. The can holds about five servings. I basically ate the entire can for the day. How does it look to you?

Seems decent, but is it enough? What are your maintance and how many cals is that?

I would buy real chicken breast, as canned is going to cost alot of money.

I think my calories for that day were around 2500 after I put it all into Fit Day and added it up. Does that sound about right? Is that anywhere close to the calories I need to bulk? I figured it'd have to be in the 4000 range, but I'm not sure. Someone help me out on this.

Maintainence? Is that the amount of calories I'm aiming for in a day? I'm new I need a definition. :)

it says you are 210 pounds. general rule is. 12-16x weight = bulk cal.

2520 is min amount. i was shooting for 2500 at being 120 pounds.

you can add some whole grain toast in the morning, Oat meal is also great and cheap as hell. You can also add some jelly for you penut butter, mostly carbs but should be fine.

I'll definitely try that out, maybe some whole grain toast with peanut butter on it along with the rest of my breakfast? You can't beat oatmeal either, in fact I might just have some right now.

with oatmeal, i like to make it with milk instead of water and also a table spoon of olive oil. Thats aobut an extra 230 cals in the milk and the oil. But oil i think is a bit much, personally. But i'm on a supers sloppy bulk so i dont care :)

That's funny because I had a bowl around 9pm with milk, and came sooo close to putting some olive oil in but I just decided not to. It was a big bowl though, so I just passed on it. I might try that next time though

I'm gettin' hungry, I need to go eat some more.
