New to bodybuilding

Hi, im 16 (17 sept) i've not long started my diet and been going the gym 3 times a week, i enjoy all the foods so i suppose that helps a lot, obviously i wont see huge gains in such short time, but i have noticed personal changes, for instance i have noticed my arms are slightly bigger, and i have gained 3 pounds. I have been doing this for 2 weeks and enjoying it, just thought i'd post up my diet and see what you all think, bare in mind im not really working properly just the odd day now and again so i can't afford major foods etc.
But anyway heres my diet

7:00am whey protein, 2 scoops

7:30am porridge with a tablespoon of honey

9:30am boiled egg and a piece of fruit i.e banana/apple

12:00am meal (chicken breast/tuna in springwater/wholemeal pasta/brown rice/jacket potatoes/new potatoes/beans/chick peas) any of these mainly chicken or tuna.

3:00pm whey protein 2 scoops and piece of fruit

6:00pm main meal any of the above from dinner time meal

9:00am protein shake 2 scoops

if theres anything you can spot that needs improvement, according to the budget i have.

Thnaks, wes.

    Seems you are relying too much on whey protein.

    No healthy fats in there either.

    7.30am, 9.30am, 3pm and 9pm meals dont have enogh protein or carbs mate.

    Just a few things you could change

    Cottage cheese is 45p for 100g and gives 13g protein.

    12 eggs are 90p

    Healthy fats like flax seed oil and peanut butter

    Tuna is dirt cheap.

    Make your own bulking shake too....for example blend 3 scoops whey, 50g oats, 1 banana, pint semi-skimmed milk, large tablespoon peanut butter and some water.


    Take a look at this bulking diet http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/article-mass-gaining.asp

    Take some examples from it.

    thnk you, i bought some cottage cheese yesterday, i will try it at half 9 with a boiled egg and tomorrow or later today i will try making my own bulking shake.

    Tuna i get for 50p a tin from asda, not too bad i suppose as its in spring water

    sorry to be a pain but also is there anything else other than peanut butter i could use, as i cant stand the stuff lol ?

    I you dont like peanut butter you could eat a handful of nuts....almond and Barzil nuts are the best IMO.

    A handy snack i have during the day or last thing at night is to blend 100g cottage cheese with 100g tuna and a half pint or so of water.

    Make sure its well blended. Goes down my neck in 20 seconds and is full of protein.

    Do a search on this site for "bulking" or "bulking diets" and see what others do.

    Good luck mate.

    you simply need to eat, eat and then seat some more. there is no requirement to think of toning, you simply need mass

    a quick question, i do try to eat more in each meal but from the diet i do, will i get gains/improvement? i dont like nuts or peanut butter so is there any other suggestions for snacks, i also just manage to buy the food i have as it is, and the protein shakes, so im just wondering weather i will get progress with the diet i am doing?
