    Help me on my bulking diet?


    I think my diet needs some improvement, but from how I set it up I don't see anything. (Very uneducated about nutrition) I am trying for a clean bulk, but still think I need more carbs throughout my day. An example of my diet is below.

    (Some substitutions might be made but each meal will go along these PCF guidelines)

    Morning: Bowl of Oatmeal and Weight Gainer Shake. Protein: 69, Carbs: 64, Fats: 15

    Between Class Meal: Can of Tuna with ¾ Cup of Oats. Protein: 40, Carbs: 40, Fats: 5

    Pre-workout Shake with Water: (Just a couple scoops weight gainer and scoop ON protein) Protein: 31, Carbs: 50, Fats: 2

    During Workout: 12ounces Gatorade

    Post Workout Shake with Water:(Just a couple more scoops weight gainer and scoop ON protein)Protein: 62, Carbs: 90, Fats: 5

    Dinner: Chicken Breast, Brown Rice, Spinach Salad: Protein: 50, Carbs: 70, Fats: 10

    Night Meal: Can of Tuna with Triscuits and Low-Fat Mozzarella: Protein: 49, Carbs: 57, Fats: 18

    Bedtime: 2 Scoops Muscle Milk, 1 Cup Yogurt, 1/2 Cup Oates 3 Eggs. Protein: 49, Carbs: 58 ,Fats: 21

    Daily Totals (Average): Protein: 350, Carbs: 429, Fats: 76


    Also what should I be dosing and having for my pre and post-workout shakes?

    I have read in a sports nutrition book that you should eat 3-5 grams of carbs x's your bw to keep your muscle cells filled with

    glycogen. So the range I would use for you is 678-1130. I would just get more carbs, train hard and lots of rest.

    take some of the shakes out and replace them with cottage cheese. A typical day for me looks like this:

    Meal 1:
    2 1/2 scoops of ON Whey with dextrose
    1 large bagel with 1 tbsp. honey

    Meal 2:
    200g chicken breast

    Meal 3:
    200g eye of round steak

    Meal 4 (Pre-Workout):
    1 3/4 cup of cottage cheese
    1 large baked potato with olive oil

    Meal 5 (Post Workout):
    2 1/2 scoops of ON Whey with Dextrose
    1 banana
    1 can of soda

    Meal 6:
    15 egg whites (or turkey cutlets...depending on time)
    1 cup mixed vegetables
    1 1/2 cup rice

    You say you're trying for a clean bulk, but you don't specify why you think your diet needs improvement.What kind of results are you getting now? also, what is your current BF%?

    let's see, 3800 cals total. looks kinda like a 35/45/20 split or something. IMO, it looks like a good clean bulk. i like it the way it is.

    Its only like 8oz of chicken...thats not as big as you think...

    The only thing I have a big problem eating is the 1 and 3/4 cup of cottage cheese...that is a TON of cottage cheese on top of eating a large baked potato...other than that, it is pretty easy to accomplish the rest...heck, most of the time I eat more than that, adding things in here and there if I feel hungry.

    It does look pretty good to me too, but i think the protein might be a little exessive on some meals and he's eating a ton of low GI carbs around the workout. A little too much I think.
