you have a good routine
Doctor :  
but if you want to make muscles then you will need some more protiens
Doctor :  
let me suggest you
Doctor :  
as you are taking four egg whites in the morning that too empty stomach, it is not a very good practice. Protien absorption is only with carbohydrates
User :   ok..

Doctor :   i will suggest you to take two egg whites before exercise
Doctor :   then you should take two egg whites along with your breakfast
Doctor :  
so that there will be good protien absorption
Doctor :  
next modification in diet is
Doctor :  
take non veg atleast 2-3 times in a week
Doctor :  
by non veg i mean fish, chicken.
Doctor :  
best thing is to have white fish, next option is to have chicken and the least prioroty you should give to meat
Doctor :  
did you follow?
User :  
yes..
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
are you taking any protien powder
Doctor :  
?
User :  
no
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
if you want you can take protinex or whey protien along with milk once daily along with breakfast
Doctor :  
if you will follow this routine then your weight gain will be in terms of protiens only
Doctor :  
and you will have a good muscle bulk
Doctor :  
also you should take plenty of green vagetables and atleast one serving of fruits per day
Doctor :   also take atleast 3-4 liters of water per day

User :   Is protein supplement good for health

Doctor :   yes protien supplement you can take but never take any medications to build muscles
