Not eating enough. I used to be afraid of my calorie intake and would only eat 2 or 3 times per day...I started seeing the real muscular growth and tone when I started eating the RIGHT way. 5-6 small meals per day.

Diet plain
Some key points to consider when creating your bodybuilding diet plan:

1. Eat 5-6 small meals per day, about 2-3 hours apart to keep your metabolism and energy up, cravings down and muscles fed constantly encouraging growth.
2. Determine how many calories you should consume each day, and stick to it. You must consume more than you burn to gain muscle!
3. Shoot for 40% protein, 40% carbohydrates and 20% fat of all calories consumed.
4. Get 10% of your target calorie intake in grams of protein. (E.g. 3,000 calorie diet: 300 grams of protein per day. 6 meals: 50g or protein each)
5. Drink water in ounces equal to 60% of your body weight in pounds. (E.g. 180 pounds: 108 oz. per day, or 3.2 liters)

These are all widely accepted fundamentals of a proper bodybuilding diet plan, so keep them all in mind when planning your meals. It can get really tough to find the time to meet all of these criterion properly, and follow the plan to perfection, but luckily there are pre-made meal plans you can tailor to your specific needs.

Many professional bodybuilders have come up with bodybuilding diet meal plans, but very few have done so for every level of caloric intake. So, you need to first figure out how many calories you're going to consume, then work with a diet plan that will work well for your level.

The funny thing about that picture, while Dr. Ken was a big fan of ice cream after workouts, Dave reportedly never touched the stuff and the picture was just for fun.
