1 carnivore mass protein shake.

Lunch 11:15
1 bag of instant pasta
16oz glass of milk.

Same goal man. Try to eat 5-6 times a day,like 3-4 hours between meals. Best breakfast is oatmeal with fruits. Eat chicken breast,turkey,tuna,eggs. And the most important thing- train your legs and core. Good luck

Your body type from your picture appears to be an ectomorph. As an ectomorph you will benefit from a high caloric diet to gain small weight pluses but keep in mind it will have to be over a long period of time (2-3 years). You will need to cycle on a mass building diet then cycle off onto a lean diet (this is necessary to bring out the muscles and prime them to grow).

Also your training would have to stress the muscles a lot so you need to pick up exercises such as gymnastics or cross fit to push the growth envelope of your muscles.

6 months high caloric meals (5 meals a day lean bulk)
6 months low glycemic diet (5 meals a day low GI)

Repeat for 2-3 years and you will see tremendous results!

Thanks Noel, I'll up my calorie intake a but more and really put some stress on the muscles. I'm currently training in a freerunning gym around town, which is similar to gymnastics, but outdoors. Any other tips let me know, very appreciated.

Be sure to supplement Glucosamine sulphate 3x a day Protein of course with all your meals (powder and food sources) Veggies - kale brocolli spinach Complex carbs such as sweet potatoes, brown pasta - the occasional simple carbs such as potatoes, etc. Creatine BCAAs Multivitamins Vitamin C and ZMA 30 mins on empty stomach before bed Flax seed oil 3x a day

Keep in mind the bulking part is the ugly part where you get heavy - you won't look your best so be prepared. But once you lean down after the 6 months bulk, you'll see noticeable strengths! I usually bulk in winters and lean in summers.

That is the look im trying to avoid getting at all times. I dont want the bulky almost fat look, i prefer to stay lean and cut all year round if i can. i dont want to get huge or jacked, i just want to appear lean and cut, for my body to be able to do what it was made to do. that is why i prefer my workouts to be calesthenics and plyometrics rather than big bulky weights, i have no need to lift 250lbs over my head. the need i have for my body is all natural movements and motions, due to my freerunning training.

I mean no disrespect and I appreciate all of your help, I really do. I'm just trying to avoid that bulky look at all costs. I don't like it and it doesn't suit me and my dreams for my body.

No worries and no disrespect taken. You won't be bulky or chubby per say it's just that you won't be AS RIPPED... Ectomorph getting bulk would look like an endomorph ... With slightly less definition.

I'm a bit intrigued exactly how many calories do you consume, and what does your typical workout look like?

A solid weight gainer is carnivore mass. $50 gets you a week supply and you drink it twice a day at 750 calories a piece. Back in December I was 140 and I've been drinking it since then and have hit 160lbs at highest weight. But I dropped back down after starting a workout regimen.

i would suggest a HIIT schedule. it help with lack of cardio but also builds muscle, or take your cardio down a bit. i've read a few times that to much cardio is bad for you. hence why you see those people at the gym that do nothing but cario, but never lose weight. you should try to limit your cardio to 2 hours a week, unless you're a runner of some sort, you shouldn't need much more than that.

Try to add a table spoon of peanut butter after your workouts..helps you gain mass effectively and it provides you adequate calories since we will lose calories from cardio and workouts
