Hey, I'm new to these forums and I've looked around to get some kind of idea on how to bulk up. I am 5'8" 135lbs. Yes...I am a twig and I have found it difficult to gain any weight. Here's my preliminary "diet" that I made up by browsing other users' diets. I'm still a bit confused on what foods I should eat and which ones I should stay away from. There seem to be some conflicting ideas on different posts.
8:00 Breakfast: 3 eggs scrambled and 1/2 cup plain oatmeal
10:00 Snack: Protein shake (water w/powder mix)
12:00 Lunch: either a can of tuna w/WW bread or chicken w/pasta
3:00 Snack: "natty" pb and WW bread
5:00 Post-workout snack: protein shake (blended w/1 frozen banana, 1 cup milk, and 1 tbsp pb)
8:00 Dinner: Either chicken and pasta or 1/2lb lean ground beef w/taco seasoning and WW tortillas
10:00 Snack: pb and WW bread
Midnight Snack: cottage cheese and tbsp fish oil.
Along w/the diet, I have also started the 1st WBB routine. Any suggestions on how to change my diet are greatly appreciated. Plz no replies with "eat everything in sight" because I know that's probably what I need to do. Another thing about the diet in general...do I want high protein, high carbs, and high calories or what?
Thanks in advance for any help.
