I am 25 years old, height is 6-3 and I weigh 185 lbs. I am looking to bulk up and gain more muscle mass and I am trying to get to around 200 lbs. Currently I have a basketball players body type. Long and lengthy, and its very hard to gain weight for me. But I would like someone to critique my diet and give me ideas for snack foods or foods to pair with my meals.
A typical diet for the day looks like this:
Wake up around 8am
1 nature valley peanut butter bar
Workout, followed by a shake of whey protein
3 sunny side up eggs
3 turkey sausage links
small helping of hashbrowns
1 piece of cinnamon raisin toast with peanut butter
also some sort of fruit
Either salmon & rice/ steak & pineapple or chicken with a bag of frozen pasta vegetable mix
I work from 3pm-11pm
First break at 5:00pm
1 nature valley peanut butter bar (looking for other snacks for a 15 minute break)
Dinner 7:00 pm
Either salmon & rice or chicken with a bag of frozen pasta vegetable mix
Cup of blueberries and some other fruit
Cup of almonds
I have another break at 9:30, sometimes I eat a small snack, other times we get off early or I will be off soon after so I wait to eat when I get home.
Meal before bed
Triscuit crackers with hommus or some ego waffles
Sometimes another whey protein shake
Mainly I would like advice of when would be the next best time to squeeze another shake into my day. I would also like suggestions of other before bed meals.
So I would like to know what else I can do. I know I should be eating a good quantity of egg whites in the morning. My hardest part is pairing foods with the main part of my meals and eatting good snacks that aren't empty calories. So I would appreciate the help from all of you. Thanks in advance.
