    Tx's bulking diet !


    Here it is.. and thanks too Jweave for helping me find out alot of the calculations on the shake and SCOTTY / YJ for helping me also. Now ive done a tad bit of tweaking so if it looks bad, dont question YJ or Scotty.


    #1 1 cup oatmeal
    1 cup whole milk
    1 scoop whey
    1 tblsp flax
    16 oz whole milk

    #2 1 can tuna
    4 slices wheat
    16oz water


    #3 4-5oz steak
    10oz yamz
    16oz whole milk

    #4/pre wo

    1 cup oatmeal
    1 cup whole milk
    1 scoop whey

    #5/post wo

    MASS shake with Whole milk

    #6 1 cup oatmeal
    1 cup milk
    1 bannana
    16oz water or milk


    #7 2 PB&J's
    16oz water


    #8/middle of night

    16oz MASS shake.

    I calculated it the other night and it came out too 4970cals/628carbs/192protein.

    Oh yes if you dont know my stats, im 19yrs old. 6ft. 150-155lbs with a blazing metab

    Now on Meal #7 i was recommended cottage cheese but i cant stomach it so.

    Nocturnal feeding is highly over rated. If you're taking in a couple glasses of milk and/or some cottage cheese, this isnt necessary. You bulking an all, need 8 hours of un-broken sleep to grow to your potential.

    agreed. i posted my take on shakes during the middle of you sleep on another thread however feeding yourself during sleep seems pretty popular for bulking diets and even maintanence.
    THe one thing that sticks out TX is what you are taking for nocturnal feeding (sorry YJ, i needed to take your wording cuz it sounds nice ha) is that the "mass shake" you are drinking is probably filled with malto and/or sugar huh? thats fine for that post shake, but if you're set on getting up (or being up) to drink, take a straight protein drink and not a "bulk" mass shake. Not necessary. Sage

    #7 2 PB&J's
    16oz water

    Regarding this, what I assume to be your before bed meal, peanut butter is of course fine but if you're going to be eating bread and jelly cals, why not just spoon some pb and have more milk instead of or before the water. Rather than cutting back on protein for the last meal of the day and keeping carbs high, I'd keep the protein up there as well if you can. I was experimenting awhile ago, and will eat something like this occasionally:

    wheat bread
    protein powder mixed w/pb (use choc flavor, makes a choc/pb taste that isn't bad at all)
    banana/honey depending on time of day

    Good luck on the gains tx, diet looks good keep on eatin!

    not really bro other than protein before bed you're looking good... wouldn't bother with middle of the night eating, **** like that. just sleep long and well, and get up and immediately stuff some **** (which you already got down I see). I personally am not an ecto so I find that I don't need particularly high levels of carbs at any time, and I can always limit them before bed and do just fine. But anyway, yeah, good luck.

    If you're taking **** at night I would make sure it's slow digesting, and lower GI carbs I don't see a problem with I guess if you are a serious hardgainer but I just don't see the point in splitting your sleep time in half just so you can chug some malto and get a spike before you, you know, roll over and go back to sleep. You're talking slower digesting ****, slower digesting protein etc... I'd really encourage you to buy some lowfat cottage cheese and just shovel that **** in there... won't kill ya eh? (I dunno mebbe it will )... now.. back to my Kylie.... *drool*

    TX, looks pretty good. However, the carbs at night are questionable. Like YJ said, get some casein lastmeal and you shouldn't be hungry middle of the night. Have some cottage cheese, milk, flax and pb for a nice bulking midnight snack.

    you can always make some beef jerky and take it with you.. I did that
    while in school... or, you can keep a couple cans o tuna in your backpack, and chow down on that... maybe have some whole wheat bread or dry oatmeal with you...

    Looks good tx, if you want a quick calorie fix try wardog's bars, they will do the trick! As for night feeding, you don't have to, just get some sleep brother!

    Looks good. Im not sure though if you plan eating all this then having the mass shake or if you're showing whats in the mass shake, even if you could eat all this, you wouldnt do it every morning. You have to make breakfast rather simplistic. Have 4 egg whites, 2 large glasses of milk and a bowl of oats and if you get tired of oats, subsitute it for some bran cereal or granola cereal.

    #2 1 can tuna
    4 slices wheat
    16oz water
    Looks good. I wouldnt include a glass of water with each meal because thats a given. Carry around a jug if you have to, honest story- My gains seeminly havent stopped since Ive been drinking water with everything.


    #3 4-5oz steak
    10oz yamz
    16oz whole milk
    I like it. But be honest with yourself, are you going to have a steak evety day? And its cool if you cant, substitute it for a chicken breast or 2, or some salmon, herring or a fish of some type and on desperation days, have a couple cans of tuna. As for the yams, if you get tired of those, substitute it for pasta- AND PASTA ONLY. The misconception with pasta is the starchy carbs arent good for the adipose tissue, not true. If you have just thep asta and drop the butter, sauce and all the trans fatty acid layden foods, you're good to go.


    #4 Chicken breasts*
    2 cans of yougurt*
    16oz MASS shake*
    Looks good. I like the addition of yogurt. Make sure its low fat yogurt, even if you're bulking. If you get tired of it, substitute it with some cottage cheese. I would drop this mass gain shake and have a large glass of milk with some flax. You're going to get tired of them after awhile, let alone 3 or 4 a day, whew




    #5/pre wo

    1 cup oatmeal
    1 cup whole milk
    1 scoop whey
    You need some simple carbs pre workout. Fruit is a solid choice. Have a banana, dry oats and a glass of orange juice and only if you have room left in your stomach without being lathargic, add a scoop of whey (I put a scoop of vanilla whey in my orange juice, tastes great, but then again, Im weird) Easy on the pre-workout protein. A lot of protein before you train causes lathargy and gives you the illusion you're full since protein takes awhile to digest (especially from the milk, whey isnt that bad) because in an hour or so, you're going to have to have that shake, etc.

    #6/post wo

    MASS shake with Whole milk


    I might skip the flax, peanut butter and whole milk post workout, for obvious reasons. It will slow the digestion greatly and thats a good amount of fat post workout. Have your 2 or 3 scoops of whey in water with some dextrose. Dextrose is cheap, if you dont have a CC, ask your mom or dad, its $1.52 a bag....

    #7 1 cup oatmeal
    1 cup milk
    1 bannana
    16oz water or milk
    I might add a potatoe and mixed vegetables here instead of more oatmeal.


    #8 4-5oz Steak*
    10oz Yamz*
    MASS shake*
    These mass shakes are going to kill you man. Remember the yams and steak substitutes also...you WILL get tired of them everyday.


    #9/ 2pb&j's
    16oz water
    IS this in your GI Joe lunchbox or Pokemon? Cut the PB&J, or at least the J. Have a few spoons of peanut butter and a glass of milk and water. White bread = not desirable this late.


    #10/middeof night

    16oz MASS shake.

    The reason i askthis is because i am not having a very hard time eating what i had at all...
    Have a couple large glasses of milk and/or cottage cheese instead. Nocturnal feeding is over rated, highly. Cottage chese and milk will more than get you through the night......


    **Other notes: Your best friend in ALL of this is making sure you know exactly or even roughly how many carbs/protein/fat and over all calories you're taking in. You seem to have a lot of cals, dont forget about your BMR and the ramifications if you neglect to follow it.

    Also, remember to switch up your foods choices, change things around, but keep the calories relatively the same. No matter how dedicated you are, you will get tired of the same old routine, everyone does. Switch up the foods, add fruits to your cottage cheese, etc. Simple things. The hardest part about eating to gain mass is just that, eating. Face it, its boring and time consuming and if you go through the same mundane routine of food selection each day, it wont last long brother....best of luck.

    the mass shake is wha exactly? I'd still switch the carbs in your last meal to oats and ground flax meal (keep pb though) if you want to go that route... especially if you are going to increase what you do eat during the day since it's not hard for you to pack it all in... carbs before bed booo... I put flax meal in cottage cheese and spoon a little pb usually... get growin rake you need some stretchies!

    Whew thanks alot YJ. I might have led yall wrong on this but when i said MASS shake i meant just my Optimum Nutrition MASS protein. Im halfing it also(using the Nlarge scoop instead). I think I will use the YJ shake in between meal 1 and 2 while im at School. As for eating steak everyday. Yes i do eat it everday, i have them indivuadully packaged and i have a nice propane grill out side with all kinds of gadgets on it so it makes it rather easy too cook a steak. Now lemme go read over your post again YJ and see what else i nee too ask!

    Oh, ok, I gotcha. Yes, half them, add some flax oil and make sure you're getting around 13-15oz of milk with each one and thats a ****load of calories, thus you may not have to have as many in a days time. I will help you configure your ration and total calories when I get a chance.

    OK for the nocturnal feeding...To me milk is like water, It wont fill me up much and for sum reason i feel like having something more heavy like that shake is better. But if yall say booo then ok. I will not eat Cottage Cheess..YUCK

    What do u mean by dry oats? Im assuming u mean just put some oats/powder of the oats ina bowl and eat? As for eatng this diet everday, i will stick too it pretty strict for a 2 weeks then change it up a bit.

    Im not sure how great Shimp is but i just got a new toy for xmas which is a propane boiling pot and we have been making lot of Cajun shrimp boils in it with potatoes, corn, sausage and so on. Im actually having one tonight

    Also i will start drinking water at every meal also..


    hmm im sure there is more too come.

    I get tired of making oatmeal so I like to grind my oats in a coffee grinder and put em in milk, shakes, cottage cheese (YUM YUM, biotch ) etc, and shrimp are pretty much all protein, just eat a lot of em.

    really your choice Tx. looking at your diet, your protein source coming from steak, chicken, and a can of tuna. why not add a little variety and try some eggs and or cottage cheese. Im assuming the meal before your meal 8 (steak, yams, shake) will be fairly close it so having eggs or cottage cheese seem like a good choice. Farily light, good source of protein. As for carbs/fat, cook your eggs with some ex. virgina olive oil for them monounsaturated and how bout some brown rice. Although a brown rice and cottage cheese doesnt sound too fluid. (ha) oatmeal? (a nice change of pace...having a breakfast meal at night) Sage
