Stick with clean food. And in first month you can eat everything in sight. This will maximize newbie gains. Then later on switch to Clean Bulking. Here are tips about it:
Bench Press 60kg 5x5
Squats 77,5 kg 5x5
Deads 112,5kg 5x5
BB Rows 80kg 5x5
Overhead Pr. 40kg 5x5
My training journal:
Eat big but eat smart. Start eating vast quantities of whole eggs, steaks, lamb, pork, chicken, whole wheat bread and pasta, gobs of veggies and fruits. Drink as much milk as you can. Get your tuna. Eat your oats. Don't forget your olive oil and avocado, seeds and nuts. Eat all that is good. Occasionally allow yourself a cheat meal. I too love Chinese and could eat General Tso's chicken until I facken explode. I generally ahve one all out binge meal on weekends.
Lift as heavy as HELL! Push, scream, DRIVE that weight up! Don't forget to do some cardio for overhealth and fitness. Get lots of quality deep sleep.
Off, you and I need to shut down a Chinese buffet some time.
If the gym doesn't "have" or allow the exercises in Starting Strength, don't join the gym and find one that does.
IMO it's better to eat something bad than skip a meal altogether. The most important part is maintaining a caloric surplus. Once you get that down then you can focus on cleaning it up. GOMAD is awesome, and when combined with a beginner on SS, can be one of the most exciting times in the weightroom, as you'll be seeing gains constantly.

ain't nuttin but a peanut.
You will have gotten stronger when the weight that feels heavy is actually heavier than the weight that feels heavy now. Then the weight that feels heavy now will be a warmup for the weight that feels heavy then. But the weight will always feel heavy or you're not lifting enough weight. Clear? -Rippetoe
