just remember, consistency is the key, well relative consistency. What I mean by that is if you fall off the wagon one or two days, with in reason, it will not kill you. But the more consistent you are the easier it will be to figure out what you need to tweak in your diet and training from the base line you have created by staying consistent.

Also, I see that you have in some of your meals with a solid pro. and a whey in it... Not needed. If you can eat solid protein in one meal then keep all protein solid. if you are going to use shakes, use it for all of the meal. All in all, if you can eat solid do it more than liquid.

I'm no expert (by any means), but the diet seems pretty good, just knock off about 1000 cals. to make it about 2700, like someone else recommended. The only time I have protein bars, (aside from the ones I make=sugarfree) I only have one about 1/2 hr before a WO. I'm not sure how late you have meal 6, but I tend to have some protein powder w/ water, and/or some lean meat if it is late-under 3 hrs before bedtime. Also, I've been told to stay away from pastas, since they are processed.

I have the majority of my fats (they're healthy fats) before bed. And pasta isn't as bad as bread or rice. Especially when cooked al dente. Especially, especially whole grain pasta cooked al dente.

No love for my sticky lol?

Forget about the formula. You need to figure out a starting point, THEN start raising cals at around 250-500 per week UNTIL you are gaining only a few pounds every week. If the best way to gain 25-30 pounds is to increase your calories by a ton right off the bat, half of it will be fat. And being extremely bloated is no way to go through life. Take my word for it.
