Well, I'm not an expert on putting weight on, but my view is that's an awful lot of calories for your weight.

Unless you're very active, your maintenance calories could be around 2300. A 1600 calorie surplus would certainly pack on some muscle, but I think you'd pack on a fair amount of fat too.

I hesitate to say this, because you shouldn't be scared of putting a bit of fat on. But I wonder if you would get just as much muscle and considerably less fat gain with a few hundred calories less. Say 3200 and see if you can gain on that.

Also, have you got any fruit and veggies in there?
