    hey guys just wondering if the following diet ive been trying to follow is good/bad/healthy etc for trying to bulk up. abit of info about myself, i weigh 66kg about 175cm have very low body fat, early 20's and have started going to the gym pretty regularly for about 1month now (trying to go atleast 5 days a week). My goal is to bulk up abit and get ripped as well.

    Breakfast:
    eggs x2
    Bacon (3 short rindless pieces)
    hash brown x2
    Chorizo sausage x1
    Bananna
    cup of milk

    Lunch: (post gym)
    1x Whey Protein shake (24gs protein per serving)
    chicken breast x1
    toasted sandwhich with ham/salami/cheese

    Dinner:
    Salmon fillet
    steamed vegs
    rice

    my only concern is about cholesterol, is having bacon and eggs everyday a bad thing? or just 2 eggs, no bacon?

    also how many calories would that diet have in it all together? i don't know how to calculate it per serving.

    search the internets for "salmon fillet calories"

    That's not enough protien, read the stickies

    also cholesterol in the body is more highly correlated with carb intake than cholesterol intake

    that's not enough food. You can do 2 egg whites and one whole egg instead of 2 whole eggs

    the hash brown is not healthy at all if your worried about cholesterol or gaining fat (unless you made it at home) .... it looks liek your not eating enough to bulk up. Look at my diet :)

    couldnt imagine eating bacon every day. fucking gross. eat oatmeal. add snacks between meals like nuts, fruit, peanut butter.

    been said, and it's not enough food.

    if your 66kg, then you need to continue eating throughout the whole day.

    You should never NOT be eating. or not feel full

    Count Calories and START at 20xbodyweight in LBS. (2900 calories a day), at that size some even say (22+)xbw.

    you should be eating meals between those meals. at least 500 calories each.

    Yes but if he's worried about cholesterol then it would be better. He needs to eat more so I don't think eating one less egg yolk would be a big deal.
