    Tweak bulking diet plz

    October 29 I'm gonna start bulking for a 10 week phase. I'm going to shoot for around 1-1.5 lb gain / week tops.
    I've started my cals off at 2900, and will progress 300cal every week I gain under 1lb. I want minimal fat gain with this diet.

    Meals 2 and 6 I have to eat out of town everyday.

    Here is what it looks like:

    Meal 1: 1 Bagel (216,43,8,1)
    6 Egg Whites (100,0,21,0)
    2 Whole Egg (150,2,14,10)
    1 slice Cheddar Cheese (79,1,6,5)

    Calories = 545
    Carbs = 46g
    Protein = 49g
    Fat = 16g

    Meal 2: 1 can Tuna (135,0,30,1)
    26g Almonds (151,5,5,13)

    Calories = 286
    Carbs = 5g
    Protein = 35g
    Fat = 14g

    Meal 3 (pre workout): Meal 4: 2/3 cup Dry Oats (175,40,6,1)
    1 tsp Peanut Butter (50,1,2,4)
    1 scp Protein Powder (58,2,10,1)
    3/4 cup Cottage Cheese 1%(150,10,23,2)

    Calories = 433
    Carbs = 53g
    Protein = 41g
    Fat = 8g

    Meal 4 (post workout): 1 Myoplex (280,24,42,2)
    50g Dextrose (200,50,0,0)
    5g Creatine

    Calories = 480
    Carbs = 74g
    Protein = 42g
    Fat = 2g

    Meal 5: 5oz Salmon (256,0,33,11) or Steak at the same calories
    1/2 cup Brown Rice (110,23,3,1) or Sweet Potatoes at the same calories

    Calories = 366
    Carbs = 23g
    Protein = 36g
    Fat = 12g

    Meal 6: 5oz Chicken (231,0,41,6)
    3/4 cup Brown Rice (165,35,5,1)

    Calories = 396
    Carbs = 35g
    Protein = 46g
    Fat = 7g

    Meal 7: 1 Bagel (216,43,8,1)
    6 Egg Whites (100,0,21,0)
    1 Whole Egg (75,1,7,5)

    Calories = 391
    Carbs = 44g
    Protein = 36g
    Fat = 6g

    Today's Totals

    Calories = 2900
    Carbs = 280g = 40%
    Protein = 285g = 40%
    Fat = 65g = 20%

    Water = 6-8 liters

    Extra Supps
    5g Creatine (post-workout)
    4 Vitamin C pills = 4g / day
    1 Vitamin E pill = 400 IU / day
    1 Calcium pill = 650 mg / day


    My diet will be like that 6 out of 7 days / week. 7th day will be a cheat day where anything and everything goes.

    any thoughts or suggestions? thx.

    when I cut I never eat carbs before bed. Originally, I was to have meal 2 (the tuna and almonds) which has no carbs for my last meal of the day but I now have to be out of the house for meals 2 and 6 until the end of november, so I gotta eat something I can bring with me.

    So since I love eggs on a bagel, I figured it wouldn't hurt to have them as my last meal of the day. Maybe the raised insulin and the great protein source of eggs will help me stay in a positive nitrogen balance while I'm sleeping.

    Whats your opinions on that. Carbs before bed or not while bulking? remember I'm trying to gain minimal fat.

    I like to have a drotein/fat meal before bed w/ low carbs but if your schedule doesnt allow it and you are not overly sensitive to carbs you should be ok while bulking.

    If the glycogen stores are full,then all the carbs eaten will be stored as fat.Period.It's not an insulin resistance -or whatever- factor.
