Diet on Mass Tabs
So I've been bulking for about 3 months, and am going to finish with some mass tabs. I'm 6ft tall, 210 lbs, and 17% body fat (from the current Bulk). What I want is to try and maximize the lean muscle I put on from the tabs. I'm going to cut after I finish the cycle. Here's a rough diet, I know it needs work: I'm sorry that fat amounts aren't listed, I have to find where I recorded them.
Breakfast: Eggs Beaters, Oatmeal, Shake
Meal #2: Full Mass Gainer Shake + Banana
Lunch: Cup of Brown Rice
Post Workout: Full Mass Gainer Shake + cup of oatmeal
Dinner: Eggs/some kind of meat
Meal #6: (I'm still unsure here, I want a lean protein and healthy fat I guess)
Casein Protein Shake’
I know it needs work, and I appreciate any help.

As for your diet. I'd leave off the weight gainer shakes and replace them with solid food or just regular protein shakes. If you're planning on dieting afterwards there is no point in packing on unneeded fat that you will end up having to lose later when your body isn't in such an anabolic state.

I wish I could, I don't have the cord to my camera so I can't get anything up. From the looks of your pic you have a decent amount less than me.
As far as the diet, yeah I want it to be as lean as possible, but put on the most muscle possible while I'm on the tabs. The shakes are just very convenient because Im in college and am tight on time, so I don't know if I can change that. And I'm going to cut after this..hopefully down to like 12-13% BF. Any other changes in the diet?

*whole eggs instead of egg beaters
*meal 6 you can eat a can of tuna/salmon with veggies
*more vegetables and less oatmeal, too many complex carbs in the diet.

Whey Protein shakes are just as easy as your weight gainer ones. I've been a college student the past 6 years and without Whey Powder I would be completely broke. It's cheap, it's protein, and it'll not very caloric. I probably take too much of my protein through shakes but I don't cook so it's the only way I can reach 350-400g of protein a day without being 400 pounds.

Wow I never knew that..okay thanks... Can I use eggs whites in addition to them?
And as far as the mass gainer shakes, I used them to get above the maintain calorie level and the amt of carbs... so I guess I can replace them with food. But then at my height and weight, how many carbs and calories should i be aiming for?

there are calorie calculators out there to tell you the exact amount. for maintenance you should probably eat at least 3500, more if you are working out alot. definitely ditch the mass gainer shakes, cook chicken/steak/fish eat eat eat eat

Okay so I've done some revising. I think it may still need some more protein..so I need some ideas on how to add in more. Also I'm not sure on how many carbs I should be aiming for, but I can add/subtract them easily since I'll be using dextrose powder. Also, to add/subtract calories or fat I can use olive oil.
Breakfast: 2 egg yolks, 6 egg whites
Cup of Oatmeal w/ Peanutbutter
45 g protein
In between this I will take 3 tbs of olive oil
375 cals, 42 g fat
Meal #2 : Cup Brown Rice
45 g carbs
32 g fat
PWO: Whey Protein
40 g protein
Meal #3: Chicken Breast
Cup of Rice
5 g fat
50 g protein
Meal #5: 2 cans chicken (I can’t stand tuna…) w/ light mayo
90 g protein
Before Bed: Casein Protein Shake
60 cals added from fish oil throughout the day…
I will probably also add in milk with some dextrose for extra carbs..
316 g carbs

Looking this over, I think I may cut out the 3 tsp of olive oil which will remove about 1/3 of the fat, and add in high carb vegetable at meal 2, since the amount of fat the I currently have listed is about 31% of the diet

fat will be stored as energy. if you are referring to a highly glycemic vegetable (starch) then it will only be stored as fat unles consumed immediately post workout

Alright, then I'll keep the olive oil in. and as far as the vegetable, I was just thinking of adding that because I didnt know if 300 carbs was enough

You think I should cut some out? Most of them are coming early in the day/ Post workout
I want this to be as lean as possible, but put on a good amount of muscle (don't we all..) that I dont lose.

If you send me all of your Mass Tabs I will be able to better determine your fat % and then I'll send them right back

uhm if you cut right after a cycle of anabolics (mass tabs are hormonal right?) your going to loose ALL the muscle mass you gained, you need to KEEP eating big during pct and preferably a month after pct too to solidify muscle mass/gains
do what you want

the carbs im getting now are mostly complex, and are mostly before or post workout. I can cut some of them out though.
And as far as the steak and eggs...Should I change the diet more then? or is that more like a guideline?

yea you dont have to have a super structured diet. main foods: eggs, vegetables, steak, chicken, fish, fruit, some nuts, olive oil, little bit of red potatoes post workout. just eat lots of those foods, vegetables with every meal. take fish oil. rotate which ever foods from that list you have and you are good.
