    Critique my diet....Please!


    Ok I'm 6'0 20 years old and i'm weighing in at about 176lbs. I'm no sure what my bf is but I'd have to say no higher than 9%. I'm looking to do a bulk and add a good bit of lean muscle. Last winter I did a bulk from 170 to 190 without any supplements except protein. I had it cut short because of severe illness for a good two weeks. All in all I think I gained at least 4 solid lbs of muscle from the bulk. This year I'm looking to slowly add on the weight in hopes of getting to 185 but spring with minimal fat gains. I don't want to use any supplements besides protein just yet but I will if need be.

    Sorry for the long intro but heres my diet.

    7:00 a.m.
    5 egg whites, 1 cup of oatmeal, 8 oz of milk, 1 banana

    9:00 a.m.
    1 serving of Pro complex gainer... 600 calories 60 grams of protein and i think 75 grams of carbs

    10:30 a.m.
    1 can of tuna fish

    12:30 p.m.
    4 oz of ground turkey meat, or chicken, 8 oz milk, 2 slices of whole wheat bread, 40 grams ground oats

    2:00 p.m.
    Whey protein shake 40 grams of protein

    3:30 p.m.
    2 tbs of peanut butter, 4 slices of whole wheat bread

    6:00 p.m.
    4 oz ground turkey or chicken, banana, 8 oz milk

    8:30
    Whey protein shake

    Ok now I know I start to fall off towards the end of the day and that's where I need your help. Also I do eat more than listed because I eat whatever it is my parents are making for dinner that night. No worries though i don't over endulge myself with fattning foods. Most of the time they will make some kind of pasta or meat for dinner.

    Also when do you workout? Also your missnig your vegetables, I know they can be annoying but very important. Do you take in anything before bed?

    Thanks for the reply! Before bed I usualy have some kind of low fat yogurt basically as a cheat food if I didn't go out with my friends for a little something to eat. And I usually lift around 4:30 when I get home from school.

    Would it be sufficient to add say a few ounces of brown rice around 10:30 to up my complex carbs. Also how about I add a few ounces of skinless chicken breast to my meal at 3:30.

    sounds like a solid plan man, adding in chicken breasts and brown rice is always a good plan if you are looking for extra calories.

    Also the yogurt is a good pre-bed meal but you may want to look into a little slower digesting protein. Yogurt has a decent amount of casein but you may also want to take in some natural peanut butter or something to aid in the long fast while your sleeping.
