    you eat like you're dieting. you want to gain right?
    1 slice canadian bacon? eat 16 with 6 eggs.
    3oz turkey? eat 8 with 8Tbsp mayo
    6oz beef? eat a pound with a pound of potatos.
    and why ever have yogurt? ever?

    Don't forget when you're calculating your protein: half the protein of an egg is in the yolk so if you're taking out yolks, you are taking out protein. Not a big deal but a lot of ppl forget this. I eat sometimes 12 eggs a day so it'd be a pretty substantial difference for me if I was eating whites and counting whole eggs.

    True. All the nutrition is also in the yolk. You are trying to bulk and you take out yolks? Nonsense!

    Staples of my sucessful bulk are simple:
    Steak
    Chicken
    Extra Lean ground beef
    Turkey
    Eggs
    Fish
    Rice
    Potatoes
    Oats
    Almonds
    Macedamia nuts
    Natural PB
    Water

    Keep it simple. No need to get mixed up in all the condiments and bull crap. If you keep it clean, you will look clean. Guys says EAT BIG, BE BIG! But this is not always true. You need to eat larger meals but be smart about the amount and etc. Split your meals into 6-7 meals. If you weigh 120, start off with 250 gm of protien, 200 gm carbs and 50 gms of fat at first. After a couple of weeks, you can re-evaluate your diet and make adjustments. But the worst part is starting off with too much.
