Little bit of cheese
Salad and Ranch Dressing

Meal 3:

Since fat gain doesn't seem to be a concern, I won't comment on the rest of your meals, but you should lose the fat and milk in your first meal.

Your body is in a catabolic state from fasting all night so you want to get some nutrients to it as fast as possible. Fats and milk slow digestion considerably so you're not becoming anabolic as fast your body needs.

You could maybe just have a whey protein shake as soon as you wake up and then have the other stuff 30-60 minutes later.

Good luck on your bulk and welcome to ABC!! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I'd suggest counting the calories and brekaign them down into macros. Fromt he looks fo it, you're lacking carbs.

Plus, get some dextrose for PWO. Read the Window of Opportunity under the nutrition tab.

Dextrose comes in supplement form. You can get it from supplementdirect.com

19 sets for chest is a little much...

Good luck on ur bulk.

For breakfast, why not have the whey right when you wake up then eat the rest 30 mins later or when your done getting ready. Two tbspns of natty pb will slow down absorbtion a lot along with the milk

And I think Im gonna workout shoulders/traps today, I'll post how it went later.
