Are you bulking or cutting?

Either way your not eating enough protein.

Lose 100g carbs.
Add 100g protein.
Fats look good, but choose better sources: olive oil, nuts, avocado

Personally, I'd ditch the Waffles, syrup, white bread, bolonga and McDonalds. I'd replace them with, um, healthy food? Oatmeal, Sweetpotato, Fruit, Vegies, wholewheat bread.

If the diet you posted is a surplus, you'd certainly bulk up, just not in a good way, unless your genetics parallel that of Zeus'.

Listen to the brickster. He knows what hes talking about.

99% of the time healthy food is cheaper.

Why?

Because most people dont eat it!

-jordan

I.E. Fruits, eggs, whole grains, veggies. Im not talking about that healthy man or atkins crap you see all over the place either.

Not always. The chicken per lb is outrageous around here. $5/lb? What happened to skinless boneless breasts being cheap?

Cheap easy protein: cottage cheese mixed with tuna.

Surprisingly edible.

You've had excellent advice here. Take it.

Good luck!

If chicken is ridiculous moneywise how is Turkey?

Or tuna or any other fish (perch is cheap around here for fish and is surprisingly good- similar to Tilapia).

Natural peanut butter, nuts, beef jerky, hard boiled eggs etc- are good on the run sources of protein and generally cheap (ish).

Nuts aren't particularly high in protein, but they are an excellent source of healthy fat. And very portable.

Im sorry but beef jerky has got to be the most EXPENSIVE thing you can buy. Think about it, 6 bucks for a small bag??!!

I buy some every once in a while for a treat. Great source of protein and hardly any calories.

-jordan

BTW. it tastes great to!

I get like 16 ounce, or maybe 8 ounce, not sure, bags from walmart for like 5 bucks...yes sorta pricey. But i eat it over the course of 4 or 5 days usually. I dont know, to me its not too bad...but it has like 12 g of protein- hardly any calories and like 1.5 g of fat. Good little snack.

Your summary is BS. RTFA. If you read it, Chris basically does say to eat clean, eat lots of calories, lift hard, and sleep long.

Jmoss, you must listen to me here.

You won't gain much muscle on the diet you've posted, even the new one. It is 1) far too low in protein 2) comprised of horrible food. You will, however, gain weight, assuming it's all over your maintenance calories, but it will be in the form of FAT. Not good, really.

You must make sure your protein is ATLEAST 175-200g every day, preferable 225-250g every day. Ditch the white bread and replace with with wholewheat bread or, oatsmeal, which is even better. Change the vegetable oil to olive oil. The PB, Milk, eggs and wings are alright, although I'd prefer the wings to be chicken breasts, but, oh well. That weight gainer could be anything from awesome to downright crap, I don't know without the nutrition info.

brickt i am trying i just dont have the money to buy healthy foods right now, prolly next week sometime. it would be nice if someone can make me a diet plan so i can eat right and buy good foods :) anyway here is the info on my weight gainer i mix it with milk i take 1 full scoop everytime i drink a shake http://www.bodyconcept.com/family/1018/supplement_facts.html oh yea i eat most of my meat at night is that a problem?

wait till there's a sale on canned sources of protein (tuna, salmon, beans... whatever) then buy a whole ton. Just flip the coupon books every couple days.

for carbs go to any place that you pay for things according to weight and buy a whole ton of oats. Here in vancouver they go for about 20 cents for 100 grams.

you can do the same with peanuts to get cheap and healthy fats.

or make friends with someone with a costco/sam clubs/bulk food store membership and get them to pick stuff up for you.

Also if you're in a college with a decent cafeteria usually they have a fruit bar with cottage cheese. Bring a container and fill it up it's usually cheaper than at the grocery store if they charge you by weight.

Man, healthy food is generally cheap! Oats, eggs, skim milk powder, big bags of peanuts, cans of tuna, whole wheat bread, sweet potato, brown rice, cottage cheese. They are all quite inexpensive, and very good for gaining lean mass.

For a meal plan something like this could work


Breakfast
Oats, Eggwhites and Peanuts/Peanut Butter

Snack
Weight Gainer or whey with Milk and Peanuts

Lunch
Tuna Sandwhich with lots of salad and an Apple

Snack
Weight Gainer or whey with Milk and Peanuts

Dinner
Some sort of meat, baked wings is an ok start, with lots of vegies and some sweet potato/brown rice

Before Bed
Cottage cheese, Milk, Peanuts

That is a very basic, and IMHO, very easily/cheap diet to set up and maintain. Chuck in some dirty **** once or twice a week if you feel like it for the moment.

Edit: I'd consider that weight gainer to be pretty bad. It has a ****load of dextrose as its carb source, which is extremly Hi GI, which will aid in adding body fat. I'd ditch it and buy a simple whey protein from Costco?? or wherever you can in America.
