While consuming the proper amount of calories is definitely a focal point, if you're trying to gain mass you need to be sure you're keying in on your protein intake. I'd suggest adding a scoop of Vega to your morning oatmeal, as well as a protein drink/shake/smoothie post work out to feed those starving muscles!
Keep us posted with those results! Best of luck
Thanks for the tip. I have actually tried revamping my diet, which I will implement the start of next week - too busy/lazy to go to the store before Sunday... I was thinking the following might be better than where I am now (yes, I posted this in another section of the forum, but have yet to receive a reply):
Six meals, split over the day, to include:
M1 – 4 oz seitan, 5 oz lentils: 365 cals, 3.5g fat, 42.5g carb, 43g protein
M2 – 8oz tofu: 346 cals, 18.6g fat, 8g carb, 37g protein
M3 – 6oz tempeh: 396 cals, 19.8g fat, 27.6g carb, 36g protein
M4 – 2 slices Ezekiel, 0.7oz Peanut Butter: 276.9 cals, 11.01g fat, 33.85g carb, 12.97g protein
M5 – 6oz tofu, 6oz broccoli: 320 cals, 14.6g fat, 17.4g carb, 33g protein
M6 – 12oz watermelon: 108 cals, 1.2g fat, 25.2g carb, 2.4g protein
Total Cals: 1,812
Total Fat: 68g
Total Carb: 155g
Total Protein: 164g
Thoughts? Too few calories? Too much fat?
