    if your body fat is that low you're calories are way too low to effectively bulk.

    add a preworkout shake for gits and shiggles consisting of 60-100g of carbs and 20-40g protein. if that doesn't help, add some meat pre bedtime - can of tuna, 6oz chicken or steak, etc

    why dont u put cheese on your sandwiches? throw in some fat free mayo maybe, or mustard, fave sandwich is can of tuna mixed in fat free mayo on whole wheat with mustard lettuce and black olives so damn good!!! and the eggs your eatin when i was bulking i started at 168 and was eating between 6-8 eggs for breakfast with some veggies 3-4 eggs in an omelette and the rest were scambled (i like variety) umm your whey shake is 220 cals with one scoop? 2 scoops? how many scoops and how much protein and carbs are in it?? the foods you listed try to write down these facts Protein% Carb% and Fat% once you do that people on here will be able to help more to see how many more cals you really need man just gotta eat everything in sight everything!!!

    No it really should be that simple. Add more carbs if you still dont go up in weight add more....

    What bread are you having with your sandwitches?

    How easy do you have access to cooking things? Sounds like you are doing a high school type bulk thing considering all of the deli meat. Tuna, Chicken and some other very easy stuff is key to bulking

    Close to 10lbs in 5 days.... thats good going but maybe a little bit to good! The extra weight may just be food moving through your system though if you have started eating a lot more...

    You want to aim for 2lbs a week if possible. This will stop you from becoming fat and will be easier to keep on to.
