Alright, I'm sure alot of the new posters ask this here so I apologize in advance....but I'm just starting to learn how to get a daily meal plan in place. What complicates this though is I drive for a living, so being on the road 6-7 hours out of a 9 & half hour day is's my meal plans so far:

1/2 cup oatmeal + 1/4 Cream Of Wheat
1/4 cup raisins
6 egg whites w/3 tbsp salsa

1 whole wheat english muffin or whole wheat bagel
2 tbsp. peanut butter
1 apple

3 ounce Chicken Breast
1 cup brown rice or 2 small potatos
1/2 cup black beans
1 cup strawberries

1 protein bar (Metrx or Pure Protein)
1 serving of fruit

6-8 oz chicken breast, salmon, or turkey
2 cups mixed veggies
1 sweet potato

postworkout(9pm or so):
12 ounce Gatorade
1 medium banana or 30 gummi candies

1 cup cottage cheese or 1 cup nonfat natural yogurt
1 cup fruit salad

Any ideas of what I can add to a meal or snack to add more protein or carbs...These plan keeps my hunger at bay and I don't have any feelings of a "crash". I know the meal keeps my stomach full and satisfied, but I think I'm not getting the most out of workout with this plan.

P.S. I'm 5'11" and 170 lbs.
Thanks in advance!

what are your goals with diet and lifting? simple, gain weight, consume more cals then you burn. to lose fat eat less then you burn. so make sure you read nutrition facts and write then down to get a good idea. one thing definaitely is post workout consume protein instead of carbs, yes include carbs but first and foremost you need to consume a protein shake. consume the gatorade preworkout or during
