How's this weight training nutrition plan?

Hi everyone,

Just started weight training, and aiming to add 10# of muscle in 3 months (a bit ambitious, but setting a goal I think is attainable). Currently 20 yo, M, 6'5" and 173# (underweight). I have everything figured out in terms of what weights, how much, how often, etc. But, need some opinions on my nutrition plan. Here's what I have planned out:

Workout days:
9:00- Oatmeal, whey protein shake (30g), banana, cup of water
11:00- Workout
12:00- Whey protein shake (30g)
1:30- Chicken, white rice, slice of cheese, cup of water
3:00- Shake consisting of Greek yogurt, cup of milk, banana, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter
6:00- 2 tuna fish sandwiches, cup of water
8:30- Chicken/steak/salmon, cup of water

Total protein intake: 225g

Seems like I'd be getting sufficient complex carbs in in the morning, and simple carbs/protein after workout. Only reason for the peanut butter and milk is that I'm trying to gain just a bit of weight early on to get started. I'll slowly cut these out after some progress.

Now, for "non-workout" days, I have the same planned, but only because I still do some bit of exercise (cardio ~20 mins, or just basic abs stuff), but I obviously don't go as hard on my body. Just simple stuff to keep the blood moving. Would it be OK to keep the same plan for "non-workout" days as workout days? Should I cut anything out/add anything?

My other issue is that when I add bulk foods like peanut butter, I always gain weight in my belly area. It just doesn't disperse well throughout my body. So, I can't really follow the bulk first then cut method, as I'd just get a huge gut and no muscle gains.

Thanks for any advice in helping a newb!

I don't like your diet- I say this with a smile and thirty more years of experience.
It's all my opinion - and I don't know your lifting schedule or routine - but I'd feel awful repeating your diet for more the a couple of days.

Why not some breakfast cereal's; corn-flakes, Cheerios, RiceKrispies ? Afraid of the malted sugar? They are fortified (not naturally)
Where are the nuts and tomatoes and blueberries? The different leafy greens? Potatoes and root vegetables for minerals.
I like a tuna sandwich but canned tuna is not the highest quality, get in some egg salad.

As much a crazy MF'er Lee Priest is - watch his videos on Youtube observe what he eats and how he trains. Even though the age difference - he has great info.

I would also suggest a hand-eye routine once a week: like boxing training or tennis/basketball.

Protect your joints and Crossfit is a joke so don't copy that crap.

In the end you got to get as many opinions and knowledge as possible and make your own decisions on how to train.

Great reads for nutrition are 4 hour body and Living Lean. Both guys are pretty headstrong yet quite smart. I agree diet is lacking in most things you need and far too boring for a human. PM me if you want some help. Not to toot my own horn but im a 2 time pro athlete and have a masters in human performance and have written two books. I am not smart just well read

If you're trying to put on muscle, it is much easier to do so without following a strict diet. You're body is very wise and you will crave foods with the nutrients you need. Right now I am cutting weight and have to follow a stricter diet as I am limiting the nutrients and calories I am taking in.. but I would say just don't over think it and give in to your cravings while starting an exercise plan as that is probably what your body needs

No vegetables? Your carbs are coming from junk sources (white rice, nope). As others have said, add more greens, and other assorted vegetables for the nutrients.
