    Need help customizing my diet

    Age: 19
    Experience: 6 years on and off
    Weight: 160lbs
    Height: 5'10

    I'm looking to get larger. I've been strength training seriously for a few months (Rippetoes). A lot stronger but I could never manage to grow any real size. I'm looking for a diet that will allow someone with my stats and routine to gain weight. Being a broke college student, here are my options:

    Raw beef
    Bacon
    Organic eggs
    Chicken
    Milk
    Cheese
    Tuna

    Ideally, I would like a diet that utilizes these ingredients only. Often times I have steak, fish, and other deliciouses but they are far and few between. I don't mind eating raw eggs mixed with milk. I also don't mind eating the same thing in the same order every day. Can someone please write me a daily food intake with the aforementioned ingredients (and their proportions) that would allow me to acquire enough calories / protein to grow.

    Everything is appreciated.

    I'm in college too.

    Tuna, Milk, Whey Protein ($30 for 5 pounds, 72 scoops. 72 = about 30 days worth = $1/day for protein). I also get ground chuck and ground beef and just put it on a George Foreman. Buy some pita bread, light mayo. Mix the light mayo with the tuna and put it on the pita bread. Makes a great sandwich.

    Also, breakfast - 5 eggs + protein shake. It's about 45 cents for the eggs and 50 cents for the shake.

    Ok, ok, let me ask this.

    Say I take 5 eggs, mix it with milk, blend it and drink it twice a day (so 10 eggs and 2 glasses of milk).

    I eat a pound pound of bacon for breakfast

    Two cans of tuna for lunch

    Pound of beef for dinner or chicken for dinner

    Do you think that will be enought for a 160lb male who works out 3x a week to grow?

    ^--It's impossible for us to say. The only way to know is to try it and see what happens. I sure hope you're going to add some fruit and veg to that proposed diet though.
