Opinions On My Diet?


#1

Hi, im new to the forum and well ive done weight training for a little while but never actualy gained much mass due to not really looking at my diet properly. My docter told me I should put on weight because Im underweight. My stats are 171 cm and I weigh 46kg. Yup im very light indeed.

I decided after countless thinking that Im going to take a no bullshit approach to gaining some muscle mass, If I need to gain weight what better then do it through a mass gain diet! Im not going to take any supplements as I dont have the money and my parents wont appreciate it either.

I do Martial arts so I do mostley non isolated workouts like dumbells, cables, body weights and the odd barbell workout.

This is my diet:

Breakfast: 7am
Porridge oats with semi skimmed milk, two whole eggs (is whole better or just the whites?), a heaped tablespoon of mixed seed butter and 1 portion of chopped fruit)
Cup of plain black tea (no milk or sugar, just plain)
1 multivitamin
1 fish oil capsule

Snack: 10am
can of tuna/sardines/mackeral
1 banana

Lunch: 12:30/1pm
Can of tuna/sardines/mackeral with mixed veg and salad, and some carbs either from rice, potatoes or wholemeal pitta breads etc

Snack: 3:00pm
Can of tuna/sardines/mackeral
1 apple

Dinner: 5:30pm
Meat (chicken, lamb, fish, offal, venison etc) with a portion of carbs (most of the time basmati rice) vegtables and sometimes legumes/beans
1 pot of fat free natural fruit yogurt

Before Bed: 9:00pm (8:30 if im going to bed earlier)
250gram pot of quark/cottage cheese with a heaped tablespoon of seed butter (Would a fish oil capsule work just as well?)

I would love to hear your comments and advice. Thank you for taking the time to veiw this (hopfully you are!) I appreciate it if its tedious to advice a newbie like me, I can understand if you guys wished I just knew it all already lol!! anywho much appreciated

Take the time to read the Beginner sticky and check out the links provided. Massive eating 1 and 2 would be great for you. Also, getting on a solid lifting program will be crucial. There are plenty of those there as well. Good luck.
