now please help me i want to bulk up
is my diet good enough to achieve my goal
guide me with better diet plan.


Ok so your diet looks real good to me and I don't think that is the problem, however I would shoot for 8 hours of sleep if you can. First of all I don't know what type of build you have and remember even though you can always make improvements in your body composition, you still can only go as far as your are genetically able. So if you are small boned and very thin, you probably will not ever be a 285 lbs. hulk (naturally that is). Try doing reps of 5-7 with heavier weights. Also don't do the same exercises all the time as your muscles get used to the same thing over and over again. So instead of doing barbell bench-press, try using dumbells. Throw in some cable flies and incline/decline flies and presses. Make sure to not work the same muscles 2 days in a row as they need time to repair and this could hamper growth.
Moiz try taking my suggestions and see what that does for you, I think you will se some results but be patient. Not everyone grows the same way. Best of luck.
