Help an up and comer.(Photos coming soon)

Greetings,

Hello MMAFORUM i'm quite new, i've been doing a bit of trolling around the forums and believe this is the best one. My name is Duncan and I hail from Australia, 20 years of age.

I'm actually inquiring at an MMA gym tonight (infinitemixedmartialarts) and hopefully begin training as soon as tomorrow. I'm 6"0 and currently weigh 65.6 kg = 144.3 lbs. So i'm Skinny, I have a reach of 6"1.
(You will be able to make fun of the skinniness when I find my ipod cord and upload the pictures).

WHAT I NEED HELP WITH -
I need an appropriate weekly diet for weight gain, so I can at least try and obtain to make the 155pound weight division. And i can buy supplements If it's totally necessary but would prefer to save on money for the MMA classes.
I think i'm pretty right with how to put on the strength in the weight room, I find Wukkadb (Sorry if that's incorrect spelling) guide in the S&P Development forum really useful, so will basically be going off that as I'm new to the whole weight gain & MMA in general.

Any handy/helpful hints or tips would be greatly appreciated. And i am committed I promise you that, once I put my mind to something I stick to it, end of discussion.

Thanks,
WolfenTosh.

P.S - Hopefully this is easy to follow and have a good day!

Go make an account on bodybuilding.com use AbilityMMA as your referral when you do

There is a MILLION threads on weigh gaining there...

P.S that doesn't mean switch forums. We want you here, but a bodybuilding forum is obviously the right place to read up on weight gaining.

I'm struggling with the Bodybuilding.com site, the post about calculating your needs, is very hard to understand, a nice (Foolsproof) guide on how to calculate it.

I dont really understand the whole
This food has 35g of fat
60g protein, and so on and so forth.

I just eat:
Eggs for breakfast
Snack on Nuts (Insert Gay Related Jokes Here)
A sandwich with White Bread, Turkey, Cheese and Tomato
Snack on Nuts Again
And Tea/Dinner - Either Chicken, Steak or Fish with vegetables.

I probably will get some whey protein. Seems pretty cheap off the site previously mentioned ^ ^ ^

Cheers,
Duncan.

What you just posted has no where hear enough protein to be on a bulk? I eat 160g of protein and I'm on a cut!

Also, white bread? That's the worst, get whole wheat bread

Yep. I'm pretty amateurish, i'm trying to find a good diet on bodybuilding website, but I cant seem to find one. I'll keep looking and get back to you. Cheers.

If your really trying to gain mass the protein supplements are a must.
