    Bulking diet, new cycle, great recipe


    Hey guys, just started my first bulking cycle on sus500 and am curious if my diet is a good one. I'm open to any and all feedback...My stats are 6'1, 173lb and my goals are to reach 185-190 of solid lean muscle. Right now I'm about an 8-10% body fat. Here's my daily intake:

    Meal 1 (8am)- 1 cup of oats, 6 egg whites

    Meal 2 (10:30am- 30 mins pre-workout)- Natural peanut butter and banana sandwich on whole wheat bread

    Meal 3 (Immediate pwo)- Protein shake with cup of chocolate milk

    Meal 4 (an hour after pwo shake)- 1 cup of brown rice and 8oz of chicken

    Meal 5- 5:30- Fish or chicken with sweet potato and vegetables

    Meal 6- 7:30- Protein shake (200 cal, 5g carb, 40g protein)

    Meal 7- 9:30- 1 cup of greek yogurt, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and tbsp of splenda brown sugar (AMAZING RECIPE WHEN YOU MIX ALL)

    Total- My totals have been between 2900-3400 calories, 50-70g fat, 300-350g carbs, 240-280g protein.

    Please help me, I'm really committed to reaching my goals.

    Right now I'm in the gym 2 days on, 1 day off, 2 days on, 1 day off so I'm doing heavy training 4-5x a week.

    Thanks guys!

    there seems to be a too big gap between meal 4 and meal 5.

    guessing form meal 2(30min pre work-out, ergo 11:00 = workout), your (pwo-)meal 3 is around 12:30 and meal 4 around 13:30?

    that would make 4 hours until your next meal.

    Nice catch. Maybe he can just throw in another protein shake at 2:30.

    Do you consider yourself a "hardgainer"? From your stats your real lean. Personally id up protein/carbs if your lookn to put alot of weight on which you stated 15-20lb's your def gonna have to up those macros. Goodluck

    Meal 1 there is no fat. I would add in a whole egg or 2.
    Meal 2...Natural PB before a workout? The banana and Wheat bread are good, but add some protein.

    I am real lean, I've seen about 3lb gain in a 8 days (obviously with the help of being on a sus500 cycle). That peanut butter sandwich gives me 21g protein pre workout so I thought that was okay...you think I need more? Today, I added to my diet and finished with 3400 calories, 355g carbs, 303g protein, and 70g fat
