    Bulking diet critique


    I am 175lb 6'2

    meal 1- 1/2 cup oats with scoop of protein, banana

    Meal 2- protein shake, veggies

    meal 3- 2 peanut butter sandwhiches, soy and linseed bread. Veggies.

    meal 4- Large can of tuna with low fat mayo, veggies

    meal 5- Dinner (whatever is on the menu)

    meal 6- fruit (4-5 pieces)


    Im keeping fruit separate because i was told by a naturopath that fruit when eaten with other foods is held in the stomach, where it ferments and becomes counter productive.
    Also, eating it just before bedtime gives me a night detox where the fruit reacts, becomes alkaline and sweeps the bloodstream clear of free radicals.

    Other than that, do u think there is enough calories there and enough protein/carbs to bulk well?

    Where's the beef? Adding lean red meat helps to pack on mass better than any powder. Your plan is not lacking produce, which is great, but you need to focus on more calorically dense foods.

    Are you bulking or cutting? Why a shake at 1 & 2? You need more than that before bed.

    hmm...ok ill cook a whole bunch of meat one day a week and freeze it for the week. How is this

    Meal 1- 1/2 cup oats with scoop protein, banana

    Meal 2- 2-3 Chicken Breasts (or some other meat) with veggies

    Meal 3- 2 peanut butter, non wheat bread sandwhiches, vegetables

    Meal 4- Large can of tuna, mayo to taste. vegetables

    Meal 5- Dinner (if nothing nutritious is on the menu ill revert to a lean meat and some veggies and brown rice)

    Meal 6- Cottage cheese, protein shake

    I am supplementing with a mutlivitamin, fish oils, various other vit/min enrichers, and creatine monohydrate.


    Now ill try to fit in 4-5 pieces of fruit a day intbetween meals when hopefully the stomach will be fairly cleared. Will see how i go.

    Ok how is this-

    Meal 1- Shake: 1tbs flaxseed oil, 1/2 cup oats, 2 cups skim milk, 1 scoop whey, 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1 banana, 2 tablespoons low fat yoghurt

    Meal 2- 2-3 Chicken breasts/Lamb/Beef with cup green veggies

    Meal 3- 1 cup sweet potatoes, mixed nuts, 1 cup green veggies

    Meal 4- Fruit (3-4 pieces)

    Meal 5- Dinner- usually a full meal of carbs, protein and veg

    Meal 6- Shake: 2 cups water, 2 scoops whey, 1 tbs flax, piece of lean meat

    Other daily food- 2 cups green tea with added apple cider vinegar. Omega 3 and 6 supps, multivitamins and colon care herbs.


    Training schedule- 4 day split, 2-3 exercises per body part, lifting heavy changing routine often.

    How does the diet look? Good to go?

    from what i judge using fitday there is about 2200 calories with a macros of 36% protein, 38% carbs, 26% fat from that meal plan not including dinner. If the average dinner is 5-600 calories then im hitting around 2700-2800 calories a day. I wonder if thats enough. If not i might add some carbs to my bedtime shake to crank it to 3000 calories... what do u think?

    i think that is enough caloires. and before bed u could even have some cottage cheese or some type of cheese product. its a good slow-digesting protien.
