    Newbie with some weight gain questions!

    Hey everyone, I'm about 6'2-6'3 and 159 lbs give or take. I'm trying to put on some more weight and muscle so I can be a little thicker. I'm not looking to get HUGE but a good size, with some tone and definition. Now i've looked over the forums and found some really good ideas and good foods to eat. So here's is what i assume to be the best option, and tell me if i should change anything!

    Breakfast
    Oatmeal + Glass of milk
    (Also this is the best time for me to do my workout at the gym schedule-wise, so after the workout i usually come home and take a GNC whey protein shake with 2 scoops?)

    Lunch
    Can of Tuna, some instant potatoes, maybe a chicken sandwich, maybe some veggies or rice, and a glass of Milk or water.

    Dinner
    Lucky me i work at a nice seafood restaraunt, and i get 50% off all food, so i can order many times of fish and/or filet for a very nice price. Comes with starch and salad. But if i dont always go this route every night, i'll do maybe some more tuna, potatoes, rice, maybe some ground beef. + Glass of water or Milk

    Right Before Bed
    GNC whey Protein shake with milk (3-4 scoops?), and maybe a can of tuna.

    Snacks
    Mixed nuts
    tuna
    apples
    carrots
    Peanut Butter
    protein Bar

    **Also i am taking GNC Mega Mens Muiltivitamin**
    THe hardest thing for me is to have the appetite to eat. I have no problem eating 1 meal a day and feeling fine, so my biggest issue will be getting hungry enough to eat all that above, so that's why i am taking the multivitamin. Supposively it will help increase my appetite. NOw i'm not sure what kind of weight i am looking for, maybe 175-180? WHat's a good weight for 6'3? I'm hoping to achieve it by July or so.. Is this reasonable? ANy suggestions or changes in the above diet would be great! And sorry for the newbie questions. Thanks!

    About the only way you'll really know how to gain weight is to track your calories. Some how log what you eat and the calories. www.fitday.com is a good way to start. Its free to sign up and you can easily figure out how many calories you are eating. Weight yourself every week around the same time and the same conditions. If you aren't gaining around a pound a week then increase the amount of calories you are eating by 300-500. Its tough to eat the needed calories sometimes but you just have to make it a job, just like working out.

    It's called "The Bonefish Grill". It's much nicer than Red Lobster or some place like that. They've got about 12 different type of fish and a few other "animal" dishes. SO i figure i can get a good amount of food from there with not much $$.

    Awesome. I used to work at Papadeaux (dunno how far their chain extends).
    Just watch out for all those fried seafood trays
