is this a good diet to gain muscle? also i know if you work out the same way everyday you body will get used to it and cause a plateau effect so.. (kind of a dumb question) can i follow this meal plan exactly the same every day with out causing some kind of plateau effect with the food or do i have to switch up what i eat.. again sounds dumb but i want to be sure.

    No, you shouldn't have a plateau effect with your diet. I will suggest you go with walnuts instead of flax seed. The walnuts have much more protein and are still high in the Omega 3.

    That's one hell of a diet though. Personally, I think the protein is a bit excessive (though I do not know your size and routine). The high end is around 1 gram per lb of lean mass. Also I have recently found that certain EAS products have been found to contain trace amounts of Arsenic (3 Myoplex RTD per day will put you over FDA safety standard). This sucks because I love the myoplex and am now searching for a new RTD.

    Anyhow. best of luck.

    Yea, your body does adapt somewhat to what you're eating. Some people do cycle protein and calorie levels for that very reason. But more importantly, you'll get bored of eating the same thing every day. Btw, there's little benefit to being so precise in your numbers. The main number that matters is the one on the scale. Is that increasing? Then you're on the right track. If not, you have to eat more, period. I would also avoid the myoplex if possible... real food is always preferable. I know that's not always possible, but if you can manage, it would be better. :)

    You're on a good start. However, you are probably going to need more than that if you are looking for some serious muscle gain.

    I did a custom Google search and this is one website that seemed to be pretty popular when it came to body building: http://f92a8c5qz4ok9r1gt8vi60pmg1.hop.clickbank.ne...

    Plan looks good. I'd lower the flaxseed oil though and add something else instead like low fat curd cheese for protein.

    Oh and I wouldn't trust those weird websites, they're usually after your money and trying to make you buy something.
