In my nutrition class we talked about the needs for people body building, etc. They can get all the proper nutrition from foods by sticking to a healthy, well-rounded diet. They don't need any supplements. Our bodies prefer nutrients from food first.
I would try to get an idea of what your daily needs are. Try going to mypyramid for some guidelines or a dietitian.
I would stick to lean meat-turkey, skinless chicken, legumes
Eat smaller, more frequent meals that provide energy.
Keep your electrolytes in balance and control salt (no extra salty foods, fried stuff)
try eating as much food that is nutrient dense- fewer discretionay calories or none.

Chilean Grapes, the reddish purple ones. Lots.
Spinach quiche (do not tell them at the gym)
Gradual weight training regime with inclined sit-ups
-- do not overdo it, but go to comfy limits for two days
-- increase to somewhat painful reps or weights on 3rd day
-- important to rest on 4th day (this is crucial part to bulking up, overworked muscle grows at this point, exercising on rest and bulk day is a no-no that will DELAY your progress, but a light to moderate jog, not on rest days, no strain or weights, is okay on days when gym is closed or on one weekend day -- in place of weight training, also better for diet slips like too much baked potato or pizza)
Repeat routine starting at slightly higher comfy limit
Gym helper should know best eqmt and routines for you
Stay away from pancakes, mashed potatoes
Occasional buckwheat waffle or lasagne is okay, maybe on that 4th day
No ice cream, cookies, candies
Oatmeal with chopped fruits in it
Some fish once or twice a week, clam chowder too
Baked potato w/sour cream is only for winter, not more than twice weekly
All the fresh fruits and veggies you desire, add walnuts in non-summer months
Turnip, diced chunks, and barley are better soup additions than potatoes or rice
Green tea or lemongrass tea
Apple or cherry pie on fourth day is okay if you skip the lasagne. No french fries, what are they? You don't want to look like one...
ALWAYS drink some water 30 minutes before any exercise routine. Especially important on any strain day, understand?
