    Picky eater trying to Bulk


    I know its a bad combination. I'm 5'8" 145lbs. I workout 4 times a week and I'm pretty cut but have little mass. My diet is as follows:
    7am- protein shake
    9:00am- oatmeal or egg beaters
    11:00am- peanut butter on whole wheat
    1:00pm- bowl of pasta
    3:30pm- 1/2 weight gainer drink (muscle juice)
    7:00pm- dinner- steak or burgers or chicken or fish with corn or baked potato
    9:00pm- 1/2 weight gainer drink
    I also take flaxseed oil twice a day and creatine pre workout

    I eat alot less and not as healthy on the weekends. Can this be my main reason why I'm not gaining or am I not eating enough or right. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Throw it all into Fitday bro and let's see what the macro's look like. Your outline looks decent. I'd drop the corn, add some brocolli. Add a late night cottage cheese and peanutbutter. Add a little to your 3:30pm feeding as your going 3 1/2 hrs with no food. What time do you w/o?

    General rule for not so clean bulking is to eat and never feel hungry. Just always have the next meal planned. Bump to the broccolli, throw the brocolli in some scrambled eggs, ya baby, nice.

    Oh and dont be affraid of a little fat, just keep an eye on it as well as your sodium intake. I am am ecto, but personally I find having cold-cuts like turkey and cheese handy at all times (and multi grain bread), it is a great source of protein and cals. You cant grow without cals and you cant build muscle without protein.

    To add to this, if you have the time and availibility, use as many whole foods as possible. Replace those shakes with a real meal. Bump to the Fitday idea. That'll really get you a solid foundation and will make it easy to narrow down the problem if you are having troubles reaching your goals. Good luck.

    I sometimes eat a chicken sandwich, but with a whole grain bagel rather than bread. I think that would give a good bit of carbs along with some protein. Also you could add in some milk and you are all set for 600 clean cals.

    you need to eat more for breakfast for one. a protein shake doesnt cut it when you are bulking. Throw some good carbs in there as well as some good fats to start off your day. ditch the weight gainer drinks, as they are packed with sugar. During every meal, you should have carbs and protein, some meals look like either a carb, or protein only meal, not good when bulking. My serious suggestion, is to hire Bobo to get you started. He helped me out a ton with dieting (clean bulking) and you can modify it to your needs down the road.
