Budget Bulking

Page 2 of 5 First 1234 ... Last

  1. Bro, theres no big secret on bulking. With the rest of that money, go load up on red meat (lean) and broccli. The broccli will help pull the fat thrgh ur digestive system.

I definitely need to add veggies to the list. My diet lately has been lots of protien and carbs but I haven't had much in the way of fruit or veggies in the past couple weeks.
    I buy lemons buy the bagful and cut them up and squeeze them into my water. It does make it easier to drink since I am not a water person either. Lemons are cheap and have Vitamin C.

  3. Almost what eveyrone else said. Arnold used dairy to bulk. It just works. Makes you look a little fatter from extra water retention but you are bulking so shouldnt care about that. Drink a gallon of milk every two days, eat at least 6 eggs a day (whites), oatmeal, cottage cheese, yogurt, cheese, tortillas, pastas, etc. Bulking on the cheap is easy. Vegetables to bulk is not fun lol...you pretty much need to be eating them 24 hours a day to bulk haha.

    haha that sounds like Accepted when the retarded guy got fired for makin a shrimp slushy at work. I like tuna but I dunno if it would go down too easy as a shake

  9. The one thing i noticed when i was trying to bulk on a budget is that 1 Gallon of whole milk a day is like 2000+ calories by itself, I would buy weight gainer ($50 for about 9 days @ 2 Servings a day) but for about half the price i could have gotten the calories from milk(1 gallon of milk where i live is $2-3$ so for the same 9 days it would be $18-$27 which is about half the price). Only drawback is that you have to make frequent stops to pickup milk but it IS cheaper than ANY weight gainer/protein powder. Milk doesn't provide as much protein as a weight gainer/protein shake BUT you more than likely can get it from other food.
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    This is very true. I would say this is a great substitute when it comes to bargain bulking. The GOMAD diet was ok, minus the fact that it is increadly hard to drink a gallon of whole milk and a gallon of water for hydration every day. That was of course my problem, others may have been able to do both.

    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

  12. 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?

  14. Definitely a good idea. My girlfriend had her bridal shower today and we got a nice new deep frier. I'll have to put it to work.

    Its a bit embarrassing to admit right now, but last year, laid off, and fighting to be able to collect unemployment, I'd hit the free food pantries for 4, and only 4 items: powdered milk, powdered eggs, tuna, and peanut butter. 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.

But ya I found some sites that I can get 5 times as much stuff as at GNC so I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and order online.
    you can get vanilla visa cards for ordering online..

  18. For me, its:
    Oats
    Chicken breasts
    pb

    All from costco. All i eat in college lol

    This,

    Just whatever you do don't get fat free it's probably the weirdest tasting thing I've ever eaten and since your bulking then you want the fat in there anyways

    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... and GOMAD will have you ****ting and farting your brains out all day lol.

    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.

  27. Gomad would kill me. Ha ha. Too much Lactose.

    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.

  29. That's nasty. Yeah, I aim for the half gallon thing too.

  30. I think i'll aim for half a gallon too because i don't want to be constantly pooping/wiping :S
