    what's with all the creatine?

    You'd be better off having the tuna for breakfast and the isopure for post training - as nasty as that sounds.

    I ate tuna for breakfast for about 6 months.

    Nasty pasty.

    you don't need to load, just like you don't need to cycle.

    That diet looks very good. I'm impressed

    The only thing i would do is add some carbs in the last meal, 30-50g.

    I would also add a little more fat, about 30 additional grams on the total.

    I would add some oats, or another low GI complex carb.

    Nah, the protein is fine.

    I think the diet looks good. Good ratios/calories with the breakfast/post workout meals (2 most important meals of the day). I agree with the carbs in the last meal ... green leafy vegetables would be a good idea.

    Grand Totals-3576 calories, 70 fat, 279 carbs, 383 protein (too much?????)
    70 x 9 = 630kcal
    279 x 4 = 1116kcal
    380 x 4 = 1520kcal
    -------------------------
    Total = 3266

    hey bro, your protein intake is to high. Are you currently on a cycle of AS? I assume you're not, therefore lower it man, your body doesn't need that much...thats a fact. I'd lower it to about 250 or perhaps a little less. As for the carbs I'd raise'em a little bit...perhaps to 300?? These aren't magical numbers of course, but I do know that your protein intake is to high man. And the creatine CAN be loaded, but it doesn't have to be. There are a few different ways to take creatine. Hope this helps some bro.

    same opinion as mutated Spider that sucked gear up...
    Too much protein..
    u weigh 150 and take 380g??...
    take about 1.5g of ur body weight and that would be "PLENTY!"
    others would be just turn into glucose to used up as carb, turn fat or u pee or poop it out..
    Since protein is usually more expensive than carbs.. why dont u just eat carbs instead of that??
    Raise ur Carb to 350 .. drop ur protein to 250..

    I disagree with some of these guys in adding 30-50g of carbs into meal 6. The purpose of bulking is to gain weight, yes, BUT all those carbs are just gonna turn to fat. I hope you heed my advice, and if you need more carbs add'em to other meals.

    -Isopure Shake

    -Grapejuice (creatine)
    -Flaxseed Pill
    Isopure = 25g carb
    1cup oatmeal = 54g carb
    1cup grapejuice = 24g carb
    ----------------------------------------

    Looks pretty good man...BUT, ditto what these guys said about the protein....I'm on a keto diet, and 70 lbs heavier than you, and that's about how much I'm getting....You can go for about 400 carbs a day...and don't be afraid of the junk food...

    BTW, what part of long island are you from?

    hey dabomber, the ISOPURE shake is only 3g carbs. the grape juice is 42, and the oatmeal is 27. Or at least thats what the information says. hmmmmmm, on the things and about meal 2, thats my mistake, i copied it from my piece of paper wrong the carbs I have there are really 57.5. Sound better? Once again thanx for takin the time to reply guys.

    He's trying to gain lean muscle. 100g of carbs post workout if he trains hard isn't a bad thing at all. Personally I must concur, get some carbs in your diet... maybe some more essential fats and lower the protein.

    Don't be afraid to eaaaaaat. I get scared sometimes, but then I look at myself after I've done cardio, and say:

    "Damn! That Somalian is much more buff than you."

    It motivates me.
