    omit all shakes imo. its too readily absorbed not really beneficial in any area except immediatly post workout and even then i wouldnt take more than 30-40g... hell i have bout 240lbs of lbm and when i do pwo shakes i dont go over 40g... its just absorbed far to fast to take any more then that.

    way more veggies... these lil fiberloaded phytonutrient morsals are a godsend for digestion/health. try to get serving of spinich/asparagus/(other green) per day

    also i' would try to keep all meals the same ~600cals meals every 2-3hrs. when u start fluctuating ur calories i.e. 1000cals one meal than 460 in the next your body goes WTF?! and starts inducing fat stores to prep for hard times... but if u can keep them even ur body knows what to expect and how to use it.

    rite guys ive done some working out please tell me if this is right.

    1g carbs = 4 cals
    1g protein = 4 cals
    1g fat = 9 cals

    4659 cals needed to put on weight. (as its +500 isnt it?) I have a Bmi of 26-27 (so therefore 4159 cals just to maintain weight alone)

    in diet suggested by milos sarcev on the videos in the sticky here he says

    50% carbs, 40% protein, 10% fats.

    currently 189-194 16% bf

    in summer was 224 15% bf

    Therefore Diet must consist of

    2080 cals from carbs (520g) (50%)
    1664 cals from pro (414g) (40%)
    915 cals from fats (102g) (10%)

    total – 4659 cals.

    and also make sure 2g protein per lb of bodyweight. This diet is 2gprotein per lb of bodyweight until i reach 207lbs, which will have to start adding more. I know i can easily weight more then 207, im 194 now and i was 224 in summer.

    So broke down into 8 meals

    So therefore Each meal would be:583 Cals 65g carbs, 52g pro, 12g fat.

    is this all right and sounds ok for me to start planning my new diet?

    thats the best i can muster guys, ive really got my thinking cap on, got rid of most of the shakes, only a few left, and ive added some greens in too? Things dont seem to add up though?

    Anyone got any more advice?

    any reason you have no cottage cheese (or dairy in general)

    Also last meal how about some AN peanut butter to slow down the digestion of the protein while you sleep + some EFA's.

    I would also swap the turkey breast in the last meal for the steak in meal 6, as again this is slower digesting.

    Possibly a banana with breakfast and half the dextrose to 20g and add a banana there too (more natural + potassium)

    This may of course be totally off but seems to fit in with what I've learnt about dieting the last few months.

    Also look at whole wheat cous cous, just as good a carb source as pasta and rice, has more protein per 100g (13.5g) and takes literally 2 mins to cook so easy to use.

    ive tried cous cous, my bird told me about it, seems a bit gritty to me, but il look into it.

    I have turkey before bed because it contrains trynotrophen which is a natural sleeping hormone, sends you to sleep.

    As for the banana PWO, il swap that in too.

    bump for more input, need suggestions for more carbs and fat?

    also more calories because if according to calculations it takes 4159 per day just to maintain my BMI, and you add 500 to gain weight (according to stickys) therefore im going to need 4659 cals per day, and at the moment im only on 4282.

    Would anyone suggest increasing portion size? But then again looking at it, portion size is more then adequate per meal.

    Bump for more input.

    instead of throwing in some olive oil, you could try tuna in oil, not in water or even albacore or salmon. but make sure that your meeting your protein because salmon is more oily but doesnt have as much protein.
