summons built....

but a few initial questions...
1) is it working for you right now?
2) do you fitday, if not www.fitday.com put all your food in there (easier for ppl to critique your diet if it is there)
3) what does your routine look like?

Nothing to add.

Oh, except ditch glutamine and spend the money on food.

I would try and add more calories in there if you could. Your protein intake is great but if your bulking, try to consume more calories. For your meal 7, instead of just adding water, try adding a heaping table spoon of peanut butter, some honey (your preference on how much) and even ice cream if you want. Im not sure how that would taste if you have vanilla whey. I have chocolate and it tastes amazing. Throughout the day sometime, you may want to snack on mixed nuts or peanut butter sandwich.

Thks for reply :) but im very curious, I today weighted myself and im actually 145 lbs, for a bulking diet, how much calories should I be consuming? 3,500? Sorry if i sound annoying this will be my first bulking diet :). Im currently on a cutting diet and lost over 20lbs, im sooo happy with my progress so far, I just cant wait to start this diet soon (maybe next week) :)

Start with 500 over your maintenance.

Edited to add: props on the successful cut!

Thks built :) and for all the help

You're welcome - good luck!

Plan to gain about 5 lbs a month. Much more than that, and you'll likely just gain excess bodyfat. Track your weight, monitor your diet.

How about adding a few high-calorie protein shakes through out your day to really pack on the calories? I'm about to hook you up!

"570" Shake:
1/3 Cup Carnation Instant Breakfast Rich Milk Chocolate (130 cal, 1g fat, 27g carbs, 5g protein)
1 Cup 1% Low Fat Milk (100 cal, 2.5g fat, 1.5g sat. fat, 11g carbs, 8g protein)
1/3 Cup Saco Mix'n Drink Pure Skim Milk powder (80 cal, 0 fat, 12g carbs, 8g protein)
1 Scoop ON 100% Whey Gold Standard Protein Powder (120 cal, 1g fat, 0.5g sat. fat, 3g carbs, 24g protein)
3 Tbsp Carnation Malted Milk powder (90 cal, 2g fat, 1g sat fat, 15g carbs, 2g protein)
1 Tbsp Bob's Red Mill Natural Raw Whole Flaxseeds (53 cal, 3.6g fat, .3g sat fat, 3.6g carbs, 2g protein)

But one thing been bothering me, im 145 lbs (5'9)now and still got fat distrbuted around my body like my chest and a little in front of my stomach. Base on online search; 18 calories per pound is the ideal calorie for bulkin... since im 145lbs that will be a total of 2610 calories a day...shouldnt i be decreasin instead of increasin?.....if this 18 calories per pound is bs, sry for the post, just want to make sure :)

I agree with built, ditch the glute. I would add more carbs to your post w/o shake.

Hey if you ever get bored of the same old snacks, try eating some nuts and a peanut butter sandwich with some fruit on the side, like Keith said. I would throw in a can on tuna too. As for exact calories, Built's the lady to listen to ;)
