Default Chicken && Milk

My diet lately has been pretty heavy, I am pretty skinny right now trying to Lean bulk. I take in about 4 skinless boneless chicken breast each day. I also drink about 3 cups of fat free milk with that. I know that it is tons of protein

Chicken 27g protien each
Milk is 9g a cup.

I also take in a Turkey sandwich and PB Sandwich each day with milk

This is a pretty good bulk diet right?
What should i add/subtract?

man i don't know your stats but the hell that is enough protein for a dude who is lifting.

27 x 4 = 108, +27 = 135g. protein.

throw in a sandwich and some peanut butter, plus maybe some more milk, and what you get is:

1) how are you not starving honest to god
2) that is maybe enough protein to do nothing
3) your macronutrient ratios are all out of wack.

read the stickies on how to bulk and just on nutrition on general... there is a lot of very elemental stuff that you are missing here.

A) Milk is good, but don't depend on it for a protein source. You're trying to utilize it too much. 1-2 glasses a day, fine. Trying to use it with every meal, not the best.

B) Carbohydrates are your friend. Sure, you're getting some from the milk, but that's not the best primary carb source. Neither is the bread with your sandwiches. But at the same rate, don't think that carbs are a 'free' thing.

C) Try to take in mostly unprocessed, whole foods.

D) Most likely, you need to up your cals.

E) Man up and eat some veggies too.

F) Vitamins? EFA's?

And btw, what's your weight? What are your calorie and macros levels per day? If you know, that is... which if you don't, you need to learn to do that.

Not really.

And quite honestly, you've got to learn what good foods are.

Chicken is good. Peanut butter (natural) is good (not as a sandwich, though). The milk is good in smaller amounts.

Like I said before, stop trying to depend on milk for a protein and carb source.

Read the 'what a bodybuilder eats' sticky. And just in case you're not getting it...
READ THE 'WHAT A BODYBUILDER EATS' STICKY!!!

You've got to learn some basics with nutrition.
