My typical training day meal plan looks like the following:

Meal 1:
13 ounces Sweet Potato
2 ounces Egg Whites
3 ounces tilapia
Animal Flex

Meal 2:
1.5 Cups Oats
2 Tablespoons Natural Peanut Butter
1 Scoop Casein

Meal 3:
1/2 Pound of Broccoli
2.5 ounces Chicken
4 ounces Egg whites
0.75 ounces Walnuts
Essential Fatty Acids

Meal 4: (over an hour or two leading up to my workout)
6 Slices Whole Wheat Bread
Animal Pak

Sip on Xtend during training

Meal 5: (Immediately PostWorkout)
1 Scoop Whey

Meal 6: (30 min PostWorkout)
13 ounces Sweet Potato
2 ounces Egg Whites
3 ounces tilapia

Meal 7:
1 Scoop Casein
18 ml Olive Oil

Total: ~3100 calories, 238g Protein (30%P/50%C/20%F)
Weight 159 pounds, BF: ~8-9%
1 cheat meal/week
Seems like a lot of carbs; however, I had tried more of a 40/40/20 macro split (at 3100 calories) but was still having trouble putting on mass. Does this meal plan look ok for a clean bulk? Thanks!

Depends what you rate of weight gain is

I recently moved the ratio from 40/40/20 to 30/50/20 (over a few weeks) so I haven't been able to fully assess the 30/50/20 yet. I have gained about a pound over the past 2 weeks though. Just hoping I am not setting myself up for too much fat gain.

rate of weight gain and sufficent protein is what counts. Macro ratios are essentially an issue of whether you're a person that feels better with high carbs or high fat.

The diet looks good man, you should probly put on more mass with this ratio over 40 40 20. If your getting at least 1g per pound for protein you hould be fine
