This is my first post on this forum
I have discovered this bread by Burgen -Wholemeal & Seeds. But first ima provide my nutritional intake:
Now im 158 lbs [72kg] at 5'11 [178cm] and my goal is to gain about 20 lbs of lean muscle mass. I've been tryna eat clean and keep fat gains to a minimal and maximise muscle gain with a proper diet and high intensity workout.
I eat 6 meals a day spaced out by 3 hours starting at 6 am ending at 9pm, with about 30grams of protein for each meal which equates to a total daily intake of 180grams.
Whilst at the mall, i found this particular bread by burgen and it here is its nutritional value:
I CANT POST LINKS!? /Sigh
Burgen Wholemeal & Seeds Bread: Serving size: 2 Slices [83grams]

So technically, if i eat 6 slices of this bread i obtain around: 30g protein, 18g of good fat, 51g carbs, 21g dietary fiber. To further add, this bread has a Glycemic Index of 39 - which I believe is a good thing...
I was wondering if eating 6 slices of this bread for each meal would be a sufficient meal or not.. for me it seems to good to be true ><
A typical workout day would look like this for me:
6am - 6 slices of burgen wholemeal + seed bread [30g protein, 18g fat, 51 carbs]
9am - 6 slices of burgen wholemeal + seed bread [30g protein, 18g fat, 51 carbs]
12pm - 6 slices of burgen wholemeal + seed bread [30g protein, 18g fat, 51 carbs]
3pm - 6 slices of burgen wholemeal + seed bread [30g protein, 18g fat, 51 carbs]
6pm - Canned tuna in brine [30g protein]
7:30 - Chest workout - Flat bench 5sx6r - Incline bench 3sx8r - Decline bench 3sx8r - Pec flyes 2sx10r
9pm - post workout shake - 40g protein + 2 white bread + creatine.
I am quite new to this nutritional stuff so i'm not too confident in whether im eating properly or not.. but ima hoping if you guys could give me some valuable input as to help me achieve my goals (:
