Workout days Totals: 3918 Calories, 347g Protein, 336g Carbs, 121g Fat.
Off days Totals: 3058 Calories, 322 g Protein, 138 g Carbs, 117 g Fat.

On off days I will cut the out meal down to 1/2 cup and take out the bananas.

What do you think?

I kinda want to lower the calories on training day, what do u think I can take out?
I’m 5’10, 200 lbs and 17yo.

I only have the jamba after I olympic lift since its right next to the gym I do it at. And thats only 2-3 times a week.

I think the calories are a little high though.
I am almost thinking of taking out the bananas and cutting the oatmeal to 1/2 cup for good. That way I will have less carbs and calories closer to 3700.
Then if I stall, Ill have something to move up on.

goal?

add mass to upper body, gain strength to lower.

I changed it, took out the casein and milk for cottage cheese and taking out the pre workout whey.

Looks pretty decent. I may advise against the Jamba Juice since I think they add sugar. I’m not sure about that though. I’d say just go for some fruit instead. Also, if you find that you gain fat easily, try to minimize the fat/carb combos à la Berardi. Now, I don’t know if you are the type to gain fat easily or if you are a hard gainer, so I cant really give you the best recs, but for me, as someone who gains fat/muscle quite easily when bulking, I would also recommend consolidating the carbs around the morning and peri workout, especially the starchier carbs. Veggies are ok all the type, especially fiberous/green ones. There’s my 2 cents.
