    Why are you getting rid of the yolks? You know that's the most nutritious part of the egg, right? Also, you want more calories, so it doesn't make sense. Dietary cholesterol, in general, does not raise serum cholesterol levels, so that should not concern you either.

    Also, oatmeal is not recommended. It is often cross-contaminated with gluten in addition to having some nasty gut-rending proteins of its own. Try some cold sweet potatoes or something instead.

    A
    Squat 5×5
    Pull-ups 5xFailure (add weight if “Failure” is becoming more than 12 reps)
    Overhead Press 5×5

    B
    Squat 5×5
    Deadlift 1/2/3×5 (your choice; deadlifts can be incredibly taxing, and with exhaustion comes poor form, so be careful; sometimes it’s better to do a really heavy load for a single set)
    Bench Press 5×5

    C
    Squat 5×5
    Pull-ups 5xFailure
    Overhead Press 5×5

    If you want to gain then stop with all of the cardio. Sprint once a week.
    You can gain plenty of mass without eating craploads of carbohydrates. Up your fat and protein intake, cut your carb intake in half and eat 75% of those carbs within 90 minutes of training.
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.
