    I'd say that looks pretty good, but eat some more cottage cheese right before going to bed too! (And what's a quark?)

Good luck.
    hi mate weel the last few days i have been eating shed loads probs about 4000 cals just to see what happens and so far i havent gained any bf just feel really full a ****ting enough out lol going to stick with this as i have a manual job as a bricklayer and play football 2 days a week plus 3 full bodys up the gym so i feel i can burn all this food off what would you reccomend. cheers for the help

    If you seriously want to add mass then stopping the football,or at least reducing it to 1x a week will improve your gains.
    OK il try, im **** at it lol. ye i can,t really drop the football twice a week because i have a match and training i will just incoparte more food in around those times. i will try eating 3500 cals a day and see how i go from there. i really want it to be as clean as possible with thinngs such as oats,natural yogurt, wholemeal bread,pasta,rice and all other carb sources being complex ones. thanks for the help.

  6. Add more calories, I undertstand, you're 140lbs but you should add more calories if you want to add on some serious mass throughout your bulk.

    I would say go with 2800 calories.

  7. 2100 cals/day ---> not even close to enough

    I'd have to agree I don't believe especially fora 17 year old that 2100 calories would be enough to bulk. Depending on how long and hard you workout I think it's safe to add 300-500 without much worries. but then you have to go out and figure out how your body reacts to everything anyways.
