Just wondering what I should eat on a bulk diet and what I should avoid?

Eat foods that fit your macros..


Avoid a calorie deficit

Eat whatever you want as long as it fits your macros and make sure to get sufficient micronutrients in your diet from vegetables and fruits. You don't need to avoid anything.

If there's one thing I have learned, its that there is no foods that are inherently "good" or "bad" for you (well, maybe trans fats?).

The most important thing is to hit your calorie requirements for the day (not over, not under), hit your protein/fat needs (or more, doesnt matter how much as long as you hit the min number), and have enough carbs to fuel your workouts. Related to carbs, try to total like 25 grams of fiber from whole grain sources (super easy to achieve) and then fill the rest with whatever you want.

Cliffs:
#1 Figure out TDEE (maintenance), eat 110-120% of this in order to gain weight, eat 80-90% to lose weight.
#2 Figure out macro- (and micronutrient) needs
#3 Meal timing is irrelevant, hitting your needs for the day (#2) is vastly more important
#4 Eat whatever you like, as long as it fits your daily caloric intake, in addition to hitting your nutritional needs (#2).

P.S. you won't gain any noticable mass as a Gunners-fan.
