    I'd try to do a whole food meal pre workout and add in some more carbs at that meal.

    i'm not saying it is a problem, i just think you'll get more benefit if one of your first 3 meals of the day isnt in liquid form.

    cheerios and a chicken breast. I always eat a huge bowl of whole grain cheerios about an hour before working out, gives me great energy throughout my lifts.

    Why you scaring away from the healthy fats?

    Ive noticed alot of people on this board do that! Don't be afraid to eat FATS, they are a great source of calories and energy.

    tattoopierced has it right, dont rely on your main protein as whey. I knew a guy who had oats and whey in almost all his meals, and tonnes of olive oil and wondered why he didnt grow and had low energy well DUH! It's a supplement. Use whole food whenever you can (tuna, eggs, chicken, steak, extra lean ground beef, egg whites, peanut butter, oils of all kinds, nuts, lamb, etc), you will feel much more dense and your body MUCH less catabolic then if you rely on whey for your main protein source.

    I would have to agree with lgkitfox`s point about the importance of healthy fats. I would suggest you increase your fat intake to about 85g and take those calories from protein. You`re currently intaking over 2.0g Protein per pound, which is a very high intake.

    Also I am a big fan of a solid meal pre-workout, which for me is oatmeal about 1-1.5hours preworkout. I find this gives the food time to get out of stomach but keeps me running throughout my workout. I do about 70g carbs,35g Pro and 12g (Flaxseeds) in my pre-WO meal and I find the energy just perfect. Just some food for though Otherwise looks like a good clean diet, just remember about the importance of whole foods!

    Way, way, way too much protein.

    None of the scientific literature supports anything over 1.8 grams per kg of body weight.

    You can add a little more to be safe, but you don't need more than 1 gram per pound of body weight.

    Even if you think I'm wrong, and I'm not, start low and if you aren't seeing gains then try increasing it a little over time.

    I agree with the others, eat more healthy fats. Hitting 56 grams a day at that caloric intake is going to be a miserable, bland soul sucking experience anyway.

    After falling into the whole low fat fad And reading more about higher fat lower carb diets, it makes sense to increase your fat intake. Definately consider having 2-3 cooked eggs with the yolks and maybe drop the carbs a notch? On my first bulk where I gained 60lb's or so, I wish i could turn the clocks back and just lower my carb intake so I could have less fat gain to deal with later. Dont forget you need your fats for healthy testosterone levels amongst other hormones

    Why looking to bulk with low carbs? They are quite useful when trying to bulk.
