    Just wanted to get any comments on a menu plan I put together. I'm not sure why I'm having such a hard time with it, but it's frustrating me :mad:

    I am male, 5'10 & 175 pounds. I am planning to increase calorie intake a bit more over time. I'm not a big eater so even with this I'm having to force food down.

    8:00

    4 egg whites
    1 whole egg
    2 slices whole-grain toast
    1 grapefruit

    10:30

    Bran muffin
    Banana
    2 cups 2% milk

    1:00PM

    1 chicken breast
    1 cup rice or potatoes
    1 cup veggie

    4:30PM

    25g WHEY protein
    1/2 cup raw oats
    2 cup 2% milk

    5:30PM workout

    6:30PM

    25g WHEY protein
    50g dextrose
    2 cup water

    8:00PM

    1 chicken breast or steak
    1 cup rice or potatoes
    1 cup veggie

    11:00PM

    25G WHEY protein
    2 cup 2% milk

    Any comments/advice would be much appreciated. I'm thinking I should get some healthy fats in somewhere ..

    Cheers!

    HI Prodigy.

    That looks pretty good, but I have some suggestions and questions.

    Suggestions
    1] Add more egg whites into M1, and another whole eggs.
    2] At your M2, scrap what you have, and throw in some meat and some healthy fats. I personally like Tuna and Olive Oil.
    3] Get rid of the whey protein from your M7, and replace it with a slower digesting protein source, meat IMO. Then add in some healthy fats, e.g. olive oil.

    Questions
    1] How many calories does your plan currently come to?
    2] How many grams of protein, carbohydrates and fats are you eating?
    3] What is your maintenance calories, using the Harris Benedict?
    4] What time will you go to bed after your M7?

    Hope this helps :)

    Thanks Foley, definetly appreciate the advice.

    However, I've come to the conclusion I haven't a clue when it comes to bulking so I'm going to join up with SwoleCat and learn from the master.

    Slower digesting protein could be meat, eggs, or casein based protein (either in powder form or something like cottage cheese).


    Perfectly fine.
