    Arrow Bulking Diet Help!

    Hi.
    To start off, i'm a 5'11, 168lb ectomorph (not extreme ecto). Since september i have began a bulking diet and have put on about 6kg so far. I currently do rowing as my main sport and as you may or may not know, it mostly includes cardio. I train everyday of the week, apart from wednesday and sunday. Approx 3 weights sessions, the other 4 cardio.


    My diet/routine is as follows:

    7am: 4 boiled eggs, 1 bowl of porridge
    11am: 1 tub of tuna pasta (medium size)
    1:30pm/Lunchtime: Nothing
    4:00pm: Training for 2 hours max
    6:00pm: 1 tub of tuna pasta (medium size)
    7:00pm: Dinner, 1 meat 2 veg
    10:00pm: 4 boiled eggs then bed

    Although i've put on some weight, i feel like i'm making slow progress because i'm missing out a meal at lunch etc..

    How would you improve this diet, so that i can put on more weight and bulk more?
    What foods would you suggest i should change/add in?
    What can i eat and lunch, that i'm not already?

    Thankyou so much for your help!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    (P.s, i need foods high in carbs due to the huge amount of cardio i have to do)

    Picture taken before bulk, i don't look much different atm

    Firstly, you're not an "ectomorph" because somatotypes are just disproven nonsense.

    Secondly, the names of the foods you eat, the times of the day when you eat and the frequency of your meals are largely irrelevant to the outcome of your diet.

    What matters is total daily energy intake and micro/macronutrient sufficiency.

    That said, one thing is obvious: your intake of tuna is sufficiently high to pose a health risk.

    Possibility of mercury contamination. Not worth the risk IMO.
