Trying to bulk the right way. Find out my maintence cals are 2,400 a day being 135 pounds. Not wanting to bulk too fast, I'm going to shoot for 3,000 calories a day to start and go from there. I've read 1-2 pounds a week is a good rule to follow for gaining weight. I do have some fat in some areas already at 135 pounds...mainly little in my pecs...so I don't want to gain weight too fast.
I'll be doing WBB #1.

My diet...

Meal 1 in morning - Homemade weight gain shake.
1,020 calories.
65 grams of fat
60 grams of carbs
48 grams of protein

Meal 2 - Randon sandwhichs
PB and J or Tuna or Chicken breast, etc.

Meal 3 - Bonless, skinless chicken breast or some sort of fish
white/brown rice

Meal 4 - Same shake as meal 1

The shakes alone are over 2,000 calories, 130 grams of fat, 120 grams of carbs, and 64 grams of protein. I figure I'll have no problem reaching 3,000 cals a day with the combo of shakes plus eating.

What do you think?

i was at 4600+ cals a day with eating only 4 meals aday. 3000 should be no problem at all just track it and you'll be alright

I'd much much rather have 8-10 meals a day,

Any advice anyone can give about my diet?

I think you need more protein, and should ease up on the fats a bit.

To be perfectly honest, I'm really not going to do the FitDay thing. The way I figure, I know for sure I'm getting at least 2,000 cals a day using my two shakes...I need 3,000 to start. By the way, do you guys think I should actually start higher at like 3,500? 3,000 seems very low.

Anyway, so after my shakes I'll need 1,000 additional calories. I'm just going to eat stuff from that "what a bodybuilder eats" thread until I have 1,000 cals. It's pretty easy math when you just need to find 1,000 cals. I don't see why FitDay is needed. If I do go over a little bit....being 135 pounds...I should think it really doesn't matter.

I hope the lack of replies means I'm doing things alright with diet? Someone on here said that I seem to be motivated to do things the right way, so I hope that rings true?

i dont use fitday either, i usually just right it down on paper and add it up. my diet doesnt change much so i dont really have to add anything up unless i eat something different.

it's difficult for me - and maybe some others - to say much unless i know what you're eating and in what proportions. so if you think your diet is okay, then go ahead.
