Some examples of my diet when putting on muscle mass:
2L of chocolate milk a day with 2 scoops of whey mixed in (one scoop in the morning one after working out)
One meal of either homemade double cheeseburgers/tacos/pizza a day
Two average steaks eaten over two portions (one with mashed potatoes and broccoli/green beans - the other with eggs and cheese few hours later)
Breakfast would either be ham&eggs with toast (steak sometimes if I had some remaining) or a homemade burrito
Banana in the morning upon waking, and banana at the end of my workout. Blackberries throughout the day.
Huge glass of water every 60 minutes without fail
Once a week I would replace the steaks with a chicken breast or veal
Once a week I would replace the junk meal with a chicken breast or veal
Workout 4 times a week for 60 minutes. 20 minutes of cardio once a week.
That's not really a "dirty bulk", IMO, especially if the pizzas and burgers were homemade. That's a pretty reasonable diet considering the target caloric intake.
