50g pasta

4:
250mls milk
100g chicken breast
1 cup broccoli
1 cup beans

5:

Comes to about 3900cals. Im doing ‘Stronglifts 5x5’ (3 days) and fasted cardio (2 days x 20min).

I’ve been on a cheap-ass bulking diet all year and I’ve gained 15lbs. Everything is from Sams Club. This looks fine to me, I’m sure you’ll do fine as long as you keep increasing calories.
