First off: thats a lot of cardio for a bulking diet. It can be done, except you'll need a fuckload more calories.

On that note, you're not eating nearly enough. Search JB's massive eating calorie calculator to see how much you should be eating.

Also, you have your fruits in there, but no veggies. Add alot more green vegetables.

Ditto on the volume and fruits and veggies. Do like mom said, "Eat your fruit and veggies." Nobody ever got fat on them.

If you dont think you can eat much more for the cals, you should consider getting a shake with more cals. Then again the veggies... you could try an ounce of wheat grass! That has about all the nutritional value you need from veggies for the day!
