    Change the beaters and 2 real eggs to 6 real eggs (whole). Do it!!!

    Eggs are a great source of protein and they help increase Test. Put a little olive oil on them or use olive oil to grease the pan when you cook them. Olive oil helps convert the cholesterol in eggs to test. If you put too much on them they will taste kinda nasty though.

    Peanut butter is an excellent source of fat and protein. As I've stated before, milk and protein are a very easy way to add serious calories, fat and protein to any mass-building diet. Steak and eggs are also good sources of fat. Try and eat steak as many times per week as possible. I know it gets kind of costly, but you will see a dramatic improvement in not only weight gain, but in your overall training as well. In my personal opinion, lose the Muscle Milk and other protein shakes and go with Champion Nutrition's Heavyweight 900. I use it and it works great for ectomorphs like us. It also has a fat source derived from beef in it. You would be hard pressed to find any other weightgainer on the market that uses a similar ingredient. In my personal opinion, you're not getting anywhere near enough carbs. More white rice, pasta, baked potatoes, and oatmeal for sure. What kind of "slow burning whey" are you using?
