hey guys what's up. i would greatly appreciate if you guys could look over my workout plan and nutrition and tell me if i'm on the right path.
for the past 3-4 years, i've been casually lifting weights on and off with no real goal in mind. but now, i'm getting down to business and taking action. i'm not a total beginner to weight training, as i have taken weights classes in school and know proper technique and different exercises. i've done extensive research, and i thought this program would be perfect for me to get buff and lose the extra unwanted fat:
i am focusing on bulking right now, and after i am satisfied with my size, i will go into the cutting stage. any advice/improvements on what i should do are greatly welcomed.
since i have just started to seriously lift, i am switching from 3-meals per day to 6-meals per day. i'm not sure what to eat at 4:00 PM, any ideas?
8:00 AM - wake up, drink a glass of chocolate milk and eat a fruit (banana, apple, etc), maybe some egg-whites
8:30-9:30 AM - workout
10:00 - drink another glass of milk, eat cereal with cold milk
12:00 - eat steamed rice cakes (made with steamed rice and lentils)
2:00 PM - eat rice with lots of vegies and a bowl of lentil soup
4:00 PM - ??
6:00 PM - glass of milk with a fruit
8:00 PM - vegetable fried rice OR rice cakes OR bread and chicken
Before going to bed - glass of milk
i drink plenty of water throughout the day, and an occasional fatty snack, like some chocolate candy or ice cream.
and helpful replies are welcomed. thanks in advance!!

What do you weigh; what's your approx bodyfat?
