Even of this, if you are taling about 4 sandwhiches a day, you really need to be doing a lot of cardio to burn off the excess carbs. thats 8 slices of bread. That alone is a lot of carb.
Personally, I think that I may be older than a lot of the members here, so fat control is a big issue for me. I like to keep my bf% way down, so I limit my carbs much more than what I am suggesting for you.
Only you know where you are and where you want to be.

4 pb&j sandwiches a day is waaaaaay too much. And if the bread is anything but whole grain it's even worse.
Say that is 8 pieces of white bread
4 tablespoons of jelly
8 tablespoons of peanut butter
Nutritionally you would have:
84g of fat
247g of carbs
59g of protein
and practically all of the carbs would quickly convert to sugar by your body. yikes.

I just had 3 for lunch. Low sodium peanut butter, whole wheat bread. I have to get some sugar free jelly but that 12 grams of fiber is good.
I think it all depends on your metabolism. I stuggle to keep weight on so it doesn't hurt me. I will still have a full serving of Nlarge 2 later after my workout with my other 5 meals throughout the day. That might put 10-12 lbs on me in a year if I am lucky.

Eat a few lean rib-eye's or N.Y. steaks and brocolli a day, then tell me how much you gain in a year.

Swole's right.... pb&j sandwhiches are "ok" from time to time, but focus on eating some lean meat, beef, turkey, chicken, hell.. even lean pork. That'll pack on some weight.

i agrea with the guys..i also heard that the more red meat u consume the mosre testosterone the body produces...make sure the meat is realy clean tho because cholesterol in red meat is the worse...if u add alot of red meat make sure ur not eating fried shit..i believe 2servings of chicken, 1serving of red meat, one serving of fish and 2 pb sandwiches with sugar free jelly would be the best...not to mention the 3 shakes, veggiez, fruits, pasta, dairy products, vitamins u should be consuming
