Meal 5- 5 eggs hardboiled made into eggsalad, 2 pieces of whole grain bread
(this is about 870 cals, countignt 5 eggs,mayo n bread

nah the carbs pwo are fine, and actually i would add some more bread or rice or something to the ppwo meal...other then that its not bad...maybe make the meal with tuna two cans instead of one...me personally i would have some more carbs, but try that and see how u like it...

I cant wait til I bulk. Id eat a lot more than that if I were you. But since you're 190 lbs..that doesnt look too bad. I would go with brown rice ppwo..its worked well for me

Hey Mach whenever I hear leanbulk I think of someone that wants to bulk up but not gain any fat, right???? Typically when bulking there needs to be a little room for an increase in BF. Doesnt have to be anything crazy but if you want to put on 20lbs. I can see that being just solid lean muscle. I'm not saying that you cant get bigger without gainng fat, but its just that this menu is great but IMO you should add alittle bit more food to assist in your bulking.
I dont really see too many fats in here.. If you want to keep with the "cleaner" foods thats great. Go grab yourself some Flax Seed oil and take a tbls full mid day with your meal 3. Just trying to keeps the fats away from any complex carbs that why I said meal 3.
Off hand these 6 meals are probably only adding up to about 2700 calories or so, tops!! And according to your profile you just turned 20 right??? At your age your maintenance cals are about 3300 or so. Add in the cals you burn traning and your in a deficit. EAT EAT EAT!!! That is the biggest piece of the pie kiddo. I would definitely without a doubt throw in some more food. Obviously you like to eat clean and clean food isnt highly caloric.
You're eating a lot of whole wheat bread but there are no complex carbs. Up the carbs big time. You can still "lean bulk" eating carbs. Worry about your high glycemic carbs when cutting. When I hear bulk that means you have to eat. Dont be afraid of a cheat, at 20 weighing 190 you can afford it.
I can type for pages on this topic and your menu. Post some more question or comments. Better yet feel free to PM me. I'd love to help

yea bye lean bulk i mean i dont wanna go out, eat fast food, deep fried shit, n get fat,. I wanna eat healthy(for health purposes n just overall well being) but gain weight. Yea i eat alot of whole grain bread cause it the easiest carb source. i thoguht my calories were alittle low, but dont really know how to add them inn there, u thibk u could critique some of my meals, n shift some stuff around so this diet will be more productive, ohh yea i just turned 21 in nov
