    Am I eating enough?

    Ive been lifting for almost 3 years, with bad results I would say. I was prety skinny when I started lifting, and now Ive gained some bodyweight, but I see no more results and Im asking myself if Im really eating enough.

    My diet is like follows:

    1. Bread with some olive oil. Whey protein shake, with some skimmed milk. A vitamin supplement and a Vit. C capsule (1 gr).

    2. Two cans of tuna fish with some bread. Sometimes I substitute this meal with a whey protein shake mixed with skimmed milk and oats.

    3. Some pasta or rice, and some meat, which is usually veal or chicken.

    4. Whey protein shake, with some skimmed milk and oats. If I lift this day, I dont use oats but a shake with creatine and some isotonic drink, and a piece of fruit (usually banana).

    5. Post-workout, which is a whey protein shake with some honey, a piece of fruit (usually banana again), some creatine, isotonic drink and vitamin supplement and a Vit. C capsule (1 gr).

    6. My dinner, usually some meat (veal or chicken) or big plain omelette.

    7. Before I go to bed, plain omelette (if it wasnt in meal 6), salmon oil (4-5 capsules), onagra oil (insaturated fat).

    And that is, tell me what u think. If u dont understand something please dont hesitate to ask, my first language is Spanish and Im not used to writing English.

    Thanks!

    Another good idea would be to list the totalt amounts of protein, carbs, fats and calories you get in each meal and a total for the hole day. Also you height, weight and bfp could be useful for people to give you advice.

    Folow my caps. I am not the best but this is my opinion.

    YOUR FIRST MEAL IS PRETTY MUCH GARBAGE IF YOU ASK EM. YOU HAVE A SHAKE IN THERE WHCI IS GOOD BUT BREAD, OIL AND MILK? HUMM??

    IF YOU HAVE SOME TIME CONSTRAINTS WHY NOT MAKE A PROTEIN SHAKE AND THROW SOME OATS IN THERE. IF YOU DONT HAVE ANY TIME ISSUES THEN EAT A DECENT BREAKFAST LIKE EGG WHITES AND A COUPLE REGULAR EGGS AND A BOWL OF OATS OR GRITS
    2. Two cans of tuna fish with some bread. Sometimes I substitute this meal with a whey protein shake mixed with skimmed milk and oats.
    THE TUNA LOOKS GOOD WITH SOME REGUALR MAYO. I LIKE TOMAKE MY TUNA WITH REGUALR MAYO, DIJON MUSTARD AND SOME DICED UP JALEPENOS(SP?)
    3. Some pasta or rice, and some meat, which is usually veal or chicken.
    THIS LOOKS LIKE A DECENT MEAL TO ME

    4. Whey protein shake, with some skimmed milk and oats. If I lift this day, I dont use oats but a shake with creatine and some isotonic drink, and a piece of fruit (usually banana).
    THIS IS A GOOD PRE WORKOUT DRINK OR MEAL. NICE!

    5. Post-workout, which is a whey protein shake with some honey, a piece of fruit (usually banana again), some creatine, isotonic drink and vitamin supplement and a Vit. C capsule (1 gr).
    POST WORK OUT I LIKE TO USE DEXTROSE OR CORN SUGAR IF YOU DONT HAVE ACCESS TO THEM THEN JUST GET SOME PIXIX STIX OR SWEET TARTS. I WOULDNT HAVE ANOTHER PIECE OF FRUIT OR THE HONEY

    6. My dinner, usually some meat (veal or chicken) or big plain omelette.

    THIS MEAL SHOUDL HAVE THE SAME BASIC MACROS AS THE POST WORK SHALE. A NICE COMPLETE PROTEIN SOURCE AND A CLEAN CARB SOURCE

    7. Before I go to bed, plain omelette (if it wasnt in meal 6), salmon oil (4-5 capsules), onagra oil (insaturated fat).
    I WOULD HAVE A PRETEIN SHAKE HERE WITH SOME FLAX OIL OR WHAT EVER YOU CHOOSE
    And that is, tell me what u think. If u dont understand something please dont hesitate to ask, my first language is Spanish and Im not used to writing English.
    YOUR ENGLISH IS VERY GOOD MY FRIEND! WELCOME TO THE BOARD!
    Thanks!

    Maybe its the notation. "," in Europe is a ".", and viceversa.

    So, one million is written 1.000.000 here, and not 1,000,000.

    Maybe is that. Same number, different notation.

    Bummer you feel that way.






    I was at a party w/friends and we were having a good time.

    I won't even touch the middle-school "wigger" comment, that's sheltered thinking at it's finest. You should really get out more. My autosignature double-bi pic makes me look like a "wigger" too? What, is it just the hat?????



    Just put me on "ignore" then you won't have to see it.

    Problem solved.

    Hi!

    Ive read your advice and designed new diet, something near 4,000 kcal. I definitely need to eat more and thats what Im going to do.

    This is the result:



    Its just an example, as every day I will be changing third and fifth meal (chicken instead of veil, vegetables instead of pasta or fish instead of meat). Hope this time is a little bit better

    yo it looks like you're eating enough calories, but maybe the protein is not in check? Because I'm only 5'6 and I need around 280 of protein per day to gain, and what did you say yours was like 320 or something? Anyway, up the protein man and if you're eating like this on a consistant basis and training frequently I can't see why youre not getting results. Youll probably gain a decent amount of fat with this diet, but you should definately get bigger
