Default another new guy in need of advice

Hey guys, just want to say that you guys have a great site going here, i have already learned a lot of good information about dieting and lifting. I am about to start lifting myself within a couple days with the intention of bulking up. I am the typical skinny kid. I am 6'5 and weigh 167 pounds and 19 years old. I have done those formulas to help figure out how many calories i need in a day. and i found out that i need 3000 calories to maintain, but i need around 3500 to bulk up.

I have no idea where to start in making a daily diet for myself. There is one problem though, i really need to do this on a budget. I am about to go back for my second year of college in a month and need to save as much money as possible. I have already purchased a 5 lb tub of gnc whey protein though.

The things that i have learned from talking to people is that you should eat 6 meals a day. So if someone can come up with a basic diet for me which involves gnc whey protein, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

3500 cals would be a fine start. 500 cals over maintaince should give you about 1lb a week as 3500 cals = 1 pound. Everyone is different , so if you gain too much to fast then lower the cals or the opposite . If your not gaining than increase by a few hundred cals.

Not too many people on here are going to write you up a diet.

The basics are :

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

You can come up with your daily totals with that.

Some food that will help you reach higher calories on a budget are :

Protein powder
Tuna
Nuts
Lean Meats ( grond beef )
Milk
Rice
Whole Eggs


If your trying to gain weight maybe eat higher carbs.

Hope that helps a bit - BTW there are tons of examples in here on how some people went about gaining weight , look into some journals. But you have to remember that what works for someone may or may not work for you.
