I'll get right to it...

Body Stats currently
6'
195 lbs
20% fat
156 lbm (lean body mass? I think that's what he said)

Goals
Bigger..... stronger. 200lbs and 10% body fat

Fit Day Stats
Ave Calories per day = 1986

Fat: 70grams 629cals 31%
Carbs: 198grams 702cals 35%
Protein: 167grams 668cals 33%

What do I need to change with this diet?

I have been doing WBB1 to the letter for 2 months now. I Follow rest day schedules and feel I eat well. I have no idea what kind of strength gains I have made....never maxed out.

I feel like I need more. My routine is starting to feel like it could use a little more intensity. Any other routines you could sugest for my situation would be great.

Let the flames begin.

i'm gonna chime in and say your protien intake is too low, as well as your fat intake. I like my protein intake number to be the same as my body weight or higher. and fat intake to be 50% of my body weight.

lets see what others have to say.

Protein and fat are minimally sufficient. Is this meant to be a cutting diet? If not, increase calories by 500 and see what happens to your gains.

Increase cals...ok consider it done.

More specifically though and I eating right. I mean are my fat, cal, and protein ratios any good?

Ratios don't matter. You are on target with your minimums (1 g / lb LBM for protein and .5 g/ lb LBM for fat). If you want any sort of critique, your fats a trivially low 70 g in stead of 76 g), but really you're doing fine. This is all assuming you are eating healthy whole foods.

I agree with built, if you aren't trying to cut, up the cals a little - I'm 145 lbs and I eat 3500 cals a day ;)

I feel like I am gonna bust eating the calories I am already consuming. I eat very healthy...if I could eat MacD's and other junk 3500 cals would be easy.

Any recomendations for adding calories that are good for me?

Fats. Eat more fats.
Natty PB, olive oil, butter, raw nuts, avocados, fish oil ...

Built, i heard you say you didn't like flax oil. Any reason why?

I dont have it a lot but sometimes I will add some to a shake or something.

Make shakes - I feel like a spokesperson for the blender industry, but honestly, a blender is a bodybuilder's best friend (maybe after a George Foreman grill, I'm undecided as of yet). Toss a banana, protein powder, oats, peanut butter/olive oil and milk into a blender, blend up, repeat 2-3x daily, and enjoy a 1,000-2,000 extra easy calories/day! :thumbup:

My feeling is that it is, others disagree.

You'll have to make your own decisions.

Up the fat by 35g, protein by 15g, and carbs by about 75g. That's if you want to gain weight.

Those ratios scream out ice cream and milk shakes.

ice cream and milk shakes? I Wish!!! Milk does not settle with me very well.

I have been eating really well....I thought. I do drink a couple of protein shakes a day...but with water.

My daily diet consists of:

Morning
grape nuts
Protein shake

midmorning
fruit and peanuts

lunch
chicken and veggies or a sandwich on whole wheat

Mid Afternoon
Anything I can find as a snack at work...fruit, nuts...protein bars.

Dinner
Beef, pork or chicken.... a starch and a green veggie.

Anything wrong...where can Improve?

Thanks for all your help.

Well, since you are very short of your calorie goals, try making each meal slightly larger. For example, if you're eatin 1/3 cup of peanuts, up it to 1/2 cup. Also, try and make your Mid Afternoon meal a little but heaftier than "whatever you can find" and add a meal after dinner. Those are some easy ways to add cals. BTW, a cup of peaunts is like 800 cals, so you could try adding that to your diet.
