Actual Newbie Needing Some Advice
 
Hey everyone,

Just joined the forums, looking forward to getting some help from the pros.

Just wanted to see what everyone thinks I should do and tune up for my current nutrition stuff. My goal is bulk (who's isn't, right?) Right now I am 6ft 3 and about 186 pounds. My overall goal is to hit 225 pounds. Here is what my typical meal schedule looks like: (This is everyday)

Morning: Two multivitamins
One protein shake (100% Whey Protein)
Maybe a peanut butter snack bar


Lunch: 1 serving of pasta with sauce (they change the sauce a lot since I am in college)

1 small serving of salad (i only put lettuce and carrots, no dressing, i know i am a freak, but whatever)

2 cups of Mt. Dew (yeah this crap is bad for me, but this is why I am asking you pros out here)

2 slices of cheese pizza

1 cup of roasted potatoes


Dinner: The same stuff as lunch, but I sometimes add a desert in there (pudding, ice cream, etc)

Pre Workout: One protein shake and one scoop of Creadrive from GNC

Post Workout: One protein shake


Alright guys, what stuff should I change in order to get to my goal, I am a really quick adjuster, so I can start right away without crying about it, lol Thanks guys!

You are getting practically 0 grams of protein from your diet... 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight is a good rule. It's best to get your protein from your diet, not from shakes although everyone supplements. If you're bulking, then you need to eat significantly more than what you listed. Eat a big breakfast. Eat meat if you're not a vegetarian. Your caloric intake should be very high. Don't take your multivitamins at the same time. They're designed to be time released, so space it out. You already know that you need to cut out the soda, so go ahead and do that. The first thing posted in the nutrition forum is "How to bulk". Read that and then come back with questions.

Eat a better breakfast, get some good solid food with that protein shake. Oats, eggs..ya know. If it means getting up earlier..then do it. I know you wanna sleep in and just grab something on the way to class, but the old saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day is very true when it comes to bodybuilding.

Get some more meat in there, along with more whey if you have to to fulfill your protein needs. Like Ross said 1-2grams of protein per lb of bodyweight

No more pudding or ice cream, and definitely no more Mountain Dew.

Im assuming you want to get to 225lbs being fairly lean right? If so, cut out the pizza for lunch, replace it with lean meats.
