    You need to give more info about where your muscular physic is, how much time you're spending lifting, how much you are sprinting, how long you hike.
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    You're carbs are pretty high for only 100g of protein: I did this for 3 months and it worked just fine, can be a tad expensive thought, look for sales, if you can't do four meals do three, and use whole milk.

    Breakfast: 6 eggs, a little bacon or sausage, cheese of choice, apple w/ almond butter, 2 glasses of milk

    Lunch: 2 chicken breasts, cup of rice, cup of veggies, 2 glasses of milk

    Lunch 2: repeat lunch 1

    post workout: 2 glasses of milk, 30 grams of protein powder

    Dinner: Steak, rice, veggies, 2 glasses of milk

    That's a lot of carbs and too little proteins and fats if you're trying to gain IMO. How tall are you and how much do you weigh? If you're not trying to lose weight then I guess the carb intake is ok but you definitely need to increase the protein and fats, particularly right after lifting.

    Why does he need to eat breakfast everyday? Plenty of ripped guys over at Leangains and they do not eat breakfast.

    i would stop the cardio as rug says. Not really adding much to your goals.
    2010 - 5,11 and 101KG

    2012 - 5,11 and 77KG

    Train hard, eat well and love life

    Meat and potatoes, dude! Old school, but effective. White rice would also be OK and would make it easier to get in 400g carbs. I agree with the previous posts that you'd probably do better with more protein and slightly less carbs.

    I am also an ectomorph and it took me a few years of heavy lifting and even heavier eating to build about 15 pounds of muscle. Consistency is the key.... and stuffing your face. After you've maintained your new weight for a while, it should be easier to keep it on and should not be a daily stuggle to eat enough. At least that's been my experience.

    Try using a tracking tool like Cronometer or daily plate to get an idea of what you need to eat to hit your target. Here's an example of a day of my eating from like a year ago when I was really trying to gain some weight:

    Yeah, this. If you are an extomorph and wanting to gain cut back on cardio. Getting enough rest is just as important as diet and stimulating muscle development
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    thanks guys for help :

    i used this calculator
    How to Build Muscle Fast: Muscle Building Tips to Build Muscle Fast

    my height: 5'9
    weight: 136.4 lbs

    i would drop the sprinting for x2 times a week and drop the hiking.

    if i randomly eating 6 healthy meals without calculator! should be fine? so the diet will look like this:

    meal 1: 4 eggs (3 white only & 1 whole) + oatmeal with milk, honey and banana
    meal 2: salad tuna sandwich
    meal 3: chicken breast + white rice + peas
    meal 4: same meal 3
    meal 5: 1 apple + 1 banana + 1/2 lemon + 1 pear + 3-4 stalks celery + 1/2 head spinach + 1 head romaine 1.5 c water and drink it
    meal 6: cottage cheese + peanut butter + black olive

    plus whey protein after workout and drink at least 2 liters of water.
    opinions?
