Yeah I know.. Seems kind of wierd to be wanting to bulk over the summer.

I'll be out of town working for the summer and I want to put on as much weight as I can (while the gf isn't around to watch me get fat). Here's my proposed bulking diet... I'll work my way up to this one (4500cals) by eating essentially the same stuff just less of it. I'm maintaining on around 2500cals right now and will probably bump it up about 500cals every 2 weeks or so until I am at 4500.

Breakfast:(767cals, 25g fat, 80g carbs, 54g protein)
1 cup oats
6 eggs (4 whites, 2 whole)
2 cups 2% milk

Snacks for while I'm working: (825cals, 30g fat, 125g carbs, 22g protein)
2 apples
2 pb + j sandwiches
probably eat 1 apple and one sandwich in the morning and the rest in the afternoon

Lunch: (1137cals, 32g fat, 119g carbs, 94g protein)
tuna sandwiches (1can, 4 slices bread)
2 granola bars (chewy dips... I love these things!)
8oz boneless, skinless chicken breast
banana

Snack After Work (also pre-workout snack): (702cals, 25g fat, 65g carbs, 57g protein)
2 cups 2% milk
1 can of tuna
1 pb + j sandwich

*Workout*

Supper: (889cals, 37g fat, 87g carbs, 54g protein)
0.5lbs (raw) beef - burgers (homemade with spices and a bit of onions)
2 burger buns
2 cups mixed veggies (boiled)

bedtime snack: (199cals, 7g fat, 6g carbs, 26g protein)
1 cup cottage cheese

Total Breakdown:
Calories: 4520
Fats: 157g
Carbs: 482g
Protein: 308g

As you can tell from the selection of foods I am trying to keep this relatively cheap.

Advice or comments?!

Looks like a sound plan - how much weight do you intend to gain, and over what time period?

LOL! I guess "a sound plan" works :p

I'm sitting around 165lbs right now. I'm hoping to get to 190-200lbs by then end of August or September. How far I go and how long will depend how fat I get. I absolutely want to get to 190lbs.

Also, I am just trying to put on lots of mass and get a lot stronger. I plan on competing in my first powerlifting competition in November.

Okay, so a minimum weight gain of 25 lbs over 5 months - sounds perfect actually.

Have fun!

I will! I just hope I can work my way up to eating all that food!

That'll be my diet everyday when I get there (and like I said it'll be that to a lesser degree until I do)... Do you think I'll need to supplement with anything more than just a multivitamin?

Fish oil is never a bad thing. Creatine if you got any. Don't be afraid to pick up some dextrose and whey for cheap calories.

I was thinking more along the lines of deficiencies in my diet.

Fish oil I will probably do.. Creatine, already there! As for the dextrose and whey.... I won't have very easy access to supp. stores over the summer (none in the small town where I will be and I don't have a car :() So I'm trying to do without... I think it's a good thing to go without for a while anyway.

Whey's just food. I use very little myself, hubby hardly at all. You'll be fine - although you may not have trouble finding a U-brew for dex, and it's cheap. Makes nice lemonaid ...
