give us more info about yourself such as stats, (height, weight, bodyfat) might make it a little easier to help ya out.

But basic guidelines for bulking are-

-protein= 1 g per lb
-carbs= 2-3 g per lb
-fats= .5-.75 g per lb

Good Carbs for bulking-
-brown rice
-shredded wheat
-whole wheat pasta
-sweet potatoes
-whole grain bread
-cream of wheat
-cream of rye
-mixed veggies
-green fibrous veggies

Good Fats-
nuts, fish oil, natty pb, olive oil, flax seeds

you should aim to gain 1/2 lb a week or so, most people who gain faster are gaining a fair amount of fat.
