I have just started to put together a food plan for myself, here is what I've done so far:

1
200 grams of natural muesli (no added sugar)
pint of soya milk

2
Tuna sandwich (can of tuna, 2 slices of wholemeal bread, tomatoe, lettace, low fat mayonaisse, low fat spread)

3
?

4
Can of tuna
50 grams of rice
table spoon of olive oil

5
Whatever my family has for dinner.

6
?

I also eat quite a lot of fruit through the day and I drink a lot of water and sometimes tea or fruit juice.

So how does that sound so far? is there anything I should change and can anyone suggest what to eat at the 3rd and 6th meal time? (preferably not more tuna)
I will probably be doing my workout between meals 4 and 5.

I will also be taking a multivitamin tablet, but what time should I take it?

Is it worth getting some whey protein powder?

Thankyou.

Basic food plan for ya mate.... Considering your bodyweight and your age and height, i'm guessin you may be a tad on the "Thin" side. Am I correct? In any case try this...

Carbs: 300 grams daily
Protein: 225 grams daily
Fat: 70 grams daily (15 or less saturated)

Make sure you get in about 60-70 grams carbs with 35-40 grams protein directly after your workout with no more than 5 grams fat. Hope this helps bro. ;)

is that much protein really necessary?

When lifting you should know that a person needs to have much more protein than your average sedentary individual. Add to that the fact that he's bulking and Yes, I do think that much protein is needed. (however if he only gets to 200 or 210 g protein some of the time it won't matter.)
