    Critique my bulking diet

    I'm 6'7" ish, 195ish, starting with a 4750 calorie bulking diet. I'm following John Berardi's ideas on meal combinations, so I only have Protein+Fat meals, with (ideally) < 10g of carbs, or Protein+Carb meals with (ideally) < 10g of fat. With that in mind, here's what I've got:


    3 whole eggs
    3 egg whites

    1 cup cherry tomatos

    773 calories, 38.5g protein, 6.44g fat, 164.5g carbs


    1 serving ON 100% Whey powder
    6 oz skim milk
    8 oz gatorade

    223 calories, 29.3g protein, 1.83g fat, 24.5g carbs

    Post Workout:

    1 serving ON 100% Whey powder
    6 oz skim milk
    8 oz gatorade

    223 calories, 29.3g protein, 1.83g fat, 24.5g carbs


    2 pieces chicken
    6 oz pasta

    1050 calories, 92g protein, 17g fat, 129g carbs

    Late Snack:

    60 grams Cheerios
    8 oz skim milk
    1 cup oatmeal
    2 slices of whole wheat toast
    1/4 cup raisins

    867.3 calories, 34.02g protein, 11.55g fat, 156.6g carbs

    Before Bed:

    1 serving Micellar Matrix Casein protein
    4 slices whole wheat bread
    4 slices turkey
    8 oz skim milk

    578 calories, 63.4g protein, 7.44g fat, 66g carbs

    381.42g protein
    104.05g fat
    585.1g carbs
    46.34g fiber

    Anyone have any advice or thoughts?

    I personally might increase the calories for breakfast, specifically carbs, and the same for post workout. Other than that, it looks decent.

    Are you gaining?

    Definately do a protein+carb meal in the morning, and around you're workouts. Personally that "PM Snack" looks like a good breakfast to me, so you might want to switch that around.

    I would also try to go for more protein+fat meals in the evening/night.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins

    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
