trying desperatley to gain 15lbs
hows it going fellas? i really need to gain 10-15 lbs, i have been busting my balls in the gym for the last 3 months and have seen absolutely no gains (in weight), i did go from 185 @about 13%bf to 182 @ around 9% bf.. not saying i am not very happy w/ my progress but im not gaining weight at all, and i realized it is because im not eating enough. i only eat about 3 times /day but its all clean ie:chicken breasts, rice, tuna etc.. and i know that i have to take in close to 3500cal/day... but i really dont know how much carbs/meal/day protein/meal/day and what to take after my workouts. currently i am taking protein/creatine/lglutamine. if you guys could help me out that would be awesome here are some stats:
18 yrs old 5'9" 182
train 4days/wk mon/tues/thur/fri (heres the workout)
football related training?
i run 8 100 yrd sprints 3x's/wk
thanx for the help guys

Well, there's a lot of info on bulking diets in the diet forums, but right off the bat 3/day is very inadequate. You need 6-7. Real food is always best, but MRP's could be used for not more than 2 or 3. Quick absorbed protein in the morning such as egg albumin or whey. Slowly absorbed protein at bedtime such as casein. After your workout, dextrose with protein. Try making large batches of a few different meals twice per week, then put them in tupperwares for the following 3 or four days.
If you really calculate, your current diet of 3 meals is probably under 2000 calories which for someone of your age and muscularity is below your daily metabolic use.
