Not an expert by any means, but I do think you can tweak your diet a little bit.

If you’re aiming to be big, then you’re probably gonna have to eat a lot more than that. Your training day calorie intake is 2500 tops. That level is probably closer to maintenance for you.

Any reason why you’re spreading out the Flameout so much? Don’t eat the Flameout immediately after working out, you need protein and carbs which is what the Surge is for, fats slow it down.

Overall not bad, but read a few more of the articles here, they’ll give you a few tips on eating to get big. In general though, you need to remember that to get big you have to eat big.

Why do people list individual foods out?

Just do the math yourself. How many grams of protein are you eating? How many calories? It’s not rocket science.

Do you expect someone to say, “Oh, you’re eating rolled oats at 3 p.m. You should wait until 3:15 to eat your oats.”

Unless you’re eating ding dongs, food choices do not matter nearly as much as you think. I know it’s the “in” thing around here to brag about how many fruits and veggies you eat. It’s also the “in” thing to be 160 lbs.

I’ve seen many of those “clean eating” braggarts. (Go to a seminar.) Most need to worry less about WHAT they’re eating, and worrying a lot more about HOW MUCH they are eating.

Whate are your goals. Is it working??

Id sat more good fats drop the Light mayo and use the real deal all the do is take the egg yolks out and replace it with crap carbs. Use the real thing Mayo not miracle whip.

Your breakfast cereal Prob Honey Bunches of Oats is a Bunch opf Crap IMO but at this point thats nit piocking if you like it go for it.

make sure your also getting your fruit and veggies. Fear not lean beef.

In the end Is it working thats what matters most along with health
