    Good point i didn't think about the gallon of water a day too, guess you'd have to camp out at the urinal haha

    I've always been called crazy for drinkin as much milk as I do. Since I was in junior high I have tried to drink at least a half gallon a day every day. At first I just like milk, then around 9th grade I started about strength trainin and figured out it was helpful. The only problem I have with drinkin it now is that I'm only at home, awake, for about 4-5 hours during the week, so drinkin a whole gallon aint possible. I have done a lot of work lately to fix my diet, but my biggest problem now is getting enough calories at work. I get two 10 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch, but it is around 120-130 degrees in the plant so if I eat very much, I get sick from the heat. I drink a bottle of water every hour and I am still slightly dehydrated and starvin at the end of the day. Any ideas of extrememly high calorie, not very filling, food?

    That's definitely a tricky one, first thing i thought of was Deep-Fried something.. Time to google it!

My 'welfare bulk' cycle. i had cases off the stuff on my porch. I would mix 'em all up in a blender for a 700 calorie and 60 gram protien drink.


    Yeah, it tasted like arse (I think even Ostarine tastes better!). My daughter called it my "Fear factor" shake.


    I also discovered powdered milk is a little easier on the gut, if you are lactose intolerant.

    Im thinking a nice breading consisting of some whey powder. I wonder if you could coat chunky PB balls in that whey breading and deep fry it if the PB would hold up...Sounds like some Epic Meal Time Sheet!

    That's my trick as I too get sick of just drinking water, but I can down ice tea all day long, I just buy the publix brand bags and make it almost every two days.

    I think a half a gallon a day max is best overall, full gallon everyday for weeks or months is overkill. Everyone I know that has tried that has given up after 2-3 weeks from all the ****ting and farting. My old neighbor stopped b/c he said his a-hole was hurting so much from ****ting and wiping it felt raw lol.

    No clue, Maybe around 1200 calories for whole milk, 65 Grams of protein, 90 Grams of Carbs and 64 grams of fat.

    I just went with half of whatever this site said for a gallon. http://dailyburn.com/recipes/gallon_of_whole_milk

    Whole milk I love, but the low fat and skim ones I don't care for. And I hate the soymilk my gf drinks, just taste odd and watery.

    And chocolate milk rocks, extra cals and carbs and I love it in my shakes. Not much better then some high quality/tasting protein like TruNurtritions cocoa ones, half frozen banana, and pb with chocolate milk. F'n amazing.

    I'm definitely gonna try that this weekend. The best solution I have found to not being able to eat much at work without gettin sick in the heat has been Cherry Cream Cheese Danishes from the vending machine lol. They aint filling at all so I can still have some vegetables from home with it and it has nearly 600 calories and 75g carbs in each one. I started eating yogurt on the way to work and oatmeal with honey as soon as I get off, and then a massive dinner after my evening run.

Spend 5 seconds in a store and you can find a thousand things full of carbs, fiber, vitamins, etc that are cheap and prepackaged, easy to eat on the go stuff, but for something with a whole lot of protien, you either have to cook somethin, or spend a bunch of money.

    Good for protein, not so much for bulking (depending on rest of your diet). You'd have to eat a ****load of tuna and eggs, I mean a can of it is only like 100 cals. If it's all you can afford then both are good sources for protein, personally I'd go nutz if majority of my diet was egg's and tuna, that would get old real fast lol. Plus eating high amounts of each will end up getting pricey as well, money that could have gone to red meats etc. Much rather eat bread and bananas and PB with honey like a mofo all day, that you won't get sick of LOL.

    Ground meat is great for bulking, usually the cheapest of the meat cut's and so many different ways to prepare and season it. I usually just make some scrambled egg's with spinach and feta once a day.
