    First of all, I don't even know what breakfast is...there's meal 1..meal 2..meal 3..etc. Depending how much you weigh and your current BF levels, I'd say try to eat 6-8 evenly proportioned meals (thats including your pre and post-workout meals). Meal 1 for me is this in the off-season:
    -6 omega-3 eggs
    -50g carbs from Grits
    -If I feel my bodyfat is getting a little too high, I'll use oatmeal. If I need extra calories then I'll add a slice of whole-wheat toast.

      that sounds pretty good but if you are trying to gain or weight you should definitely get in some good fats at breakfast. You could put some natural peanut butter on the bagel or if you have omega-3 eggs, throw a couple of yolks in with your whites.

            Yea, it is oil. Since it's natural(no preservatives, sugars, etc added) the oil will separate from the rest of it. When you get it home just stir it up really well and blend the oil in. Don't pour the oil off, that's where all the good fat is!

              I think what to remember when trying to gain weight is that there is only so much room in your stomach. So pick food with dense values.
              You're not dieting so don't be affraid to eat some whole eggs (omega 3 of course). Say you're eating oats. Cook then in water as you normally would, but instead of milk use non fat yogurt. Somehow you have to get in more bang for space of your stomach.
              I can't eat huge meals like some people can so I try and get the most nutrient dense food I can.
              Perhaps this can help you out with your whole diet. Remember breakfast is only 1 meal of the day.

                How much do you weigh, what is your bodytype, and what is your goal.

                  I'm about 5'7, 130lbs, 17 years old. My body is ectomorphic, having both of my parents 5'6, mom(110lbs), dad (120lbs). Funny thing how my older brother is about 6ft tall. Anyways, My goal is to gain some muscle while maintaining the low body fat(even though body fat probably would never be much of an issue for me). I would like to gain about 10 lbs of muscle during the summer. I have about 9 weeks as of right now. 10 pounds of muscle seems a lot but I just wanna do as much as I can. Give me some advices please!! I'm only 17 years old but I'm very motivated and commited. I don't drink/smoke. And I'm not one of those teenagers who just goes to the gym only to get on the bench press machine everyday. Sometimes I choose to sit home when I could go partying all night just so I can get the meal in, but you get the idea.

                    At your weight I'd shoot for 2800-3100 calories a day. If you want to get big you are going to have to eat like its your job.

                      A good way to get extra calories in is with sauces, PB, and cheeses. If you're not too worried about your bodyfat, then I wouldn't freak out about these. You could put some natural PB and fat-free cream cheese on your morning bagel. Choose alfredo over marinara, stuff like that.
