    That looks good for a maintenance diet but you won't gain 20lbs with that.

    Personally I would never eat a meal without at least 30g protein so right away meal 4 and 6 jump out to me. Meal 4 is okay as it is between meals but for meal 6 being it is your last meal of the day, I would add protein to it for sure.

    The calories on that diet won't be enough to bulk 20 lbs but as stated above stay consistent with it. After a week or two on this diet come back and post an update regarding how much weight you gained/dropped and make the necessary changes from there. I don't know how your appetite is but to me that isn't a lot of food which is a good thing because it will be that much easier to add food when it is necessary.
