okay- heres my basic plan (this is what i use to maintain weight):
first meal (6:30am): protein shake, granola bar (organic)
Breakfast(8am): 2 Whole grain waffles with agave nectar, 3 pieces of bacon, 2 eggs, fruit juice 12 oz(cranberry, grapefruit, OJ)
snack (10:30am):Half protein shake, granola bar
Lunch(12:30pm): Veggie sub (cucumbers, onions, carrots, red cabbage, spinach, raddiches, bell peppers, mushrooms)on whole weat bread with oil and vinegar, cous cous (or tabouleh), 20 oz. water, fruit (mango, bananna).
snack (3:30pm): other half of protein shake, mixed nuts- dry roasted, no salt.
Dinner (7pm): Sushi (usually eel and mackrel rolls, some tuna, brown sushi rice only- no soy sauce), green onion soup (made with chicken broth-low sodium, low fat), watercress and black bean salad, 20 oz. water, 12oz. green tea, steamed pork dumplings, steamed veggies.
snack (10pm): herbal tea, whole wheat toast and fig jam.
now, obviously if you're trying to gain weight, i'd replace dinner with something more italian. you know, pastas and more proteins. prob should add some more carbs and more protein to lunch as well. could also change the half shake snacks to whole shakes.
as for the maltodextrin and stuff, just drop it. they are a waste of money. you can gain weight by eating right and supplementing with a good protein shake or gainer shake.
Note: when increasing protein, keep fat low. when increasing carbs keep fiber high (20-25g fiber/day) and if you are going to supplement, take a good multi-vitamin. GNC Mega Men Sport is a good one since it has an energy blend and a glutamine, taurine, etc added.
