Default Advice on Diet..What do you think of it?

Hi, im new to this forum. Ive been a fairly lean/skinny guy (im 21 and around 6'2 and 72 kg) most of my life and have recently started to bulk up. Ive calculated that the amount of calories that i need to gain weight is around 3775. The diet ive constructed would look something like this. I try to eat roughly the same amount of calories per meal.

Breakfast 7:00am
4 x slices of wholemeal bread
Yoghurt 175g
Fruit Juice 100 ml

8:00am - Hit the gym

10:00am - (post workout) - Protein Shake
I uses Horleys Awesome - Mass Anabolic Mass Building Formula
I generally add an egg, and 3 tablespoons of yoghurt to each shake to increase the protein content

12:00pm - 12:30pm - Lunch
Baked Beans and a banana

2:00pm - 2:30pm
Second Protein Shake

Tuna on 3 slices of wholemeal bread

6:00pm - 6:30pm - Dinner
Vegetables, Meat, Milk to drink whatevers going but i always keep it to around 430 calories

8:30 - 9:30 - Snack

so yeah im fairly new to this sort of thing so any help would be much appreciated.

ive not calculatet your nutrients exactly, but at first glance, it seems to me that your diet still does not contain enough calories. 3775 is maybe a little to much. id suggest you to eat about 3100-3200 calories a day at 72 kg bodyweight.
try to eat: 85-90g of fat
230-240g of protein
350-360g of cabs
your post-workout-shake sould contain as less fat as possible, preferably none, alongsides withe whey-protein and a fast carb, like dextrose or sugar
