np bro, thats what I have done over the years, and I'm still learning a ton. but the best thing to do is always listen to your body, and always push yourself to go a little bit harder and do a little bit better. there is no such thing as good enough.

I've since then laid off bit i have been missing it.But your making me want to go back !lol I'm not doing good today and slacked abit yesterday bit I'll see what else I can put down before I pass out!Originally Posted by CountryLiftin

suggestion: a whole smoked mackerel of 350 grams equals around 1000 calories, add in a dressing of olive oil with dill and some other stuff 1200 cals easy
3-4 whole eggs with mayonaise on top and salt/pepper, handful of walnuts, down it with a russian bear/mammoth shake of 1250 cals if you can easy 1500-2000 cals
smoked mackerel as above 1200 cals
4 o clock:
unroasted, unsalted nuts 175 grams with a handful of raisins or berries
8 o clock:
steak, bread with herb butter on top, salad on the side with olive oil for veggies and extra cals, add dessert
and add another russian bear mammoth shake, this makes around 600-700 plus shake 1250 almost 2000
not so many meals, not too much to eat, 4000-5000 cals EZ
drink some olive oil shots in orange juice if you wanna man up and get easy cals

the nuts also make more than 1000 cals and pretty nutritious
you get enough protein if you eat like this, maybe a bit too much fat but for some ppl that's better than more carbs instead of fat
other good stuff: eat as much full fat greek yoghurt with walnuts and honey till your stuffed, good for the bacteria in your stomach as well
there's this debate on whether 6 meals is better than 3 and the general consensus is cals in vs cals out at the end of the day is what counts, i say just try above and see if you can handle such large amounts of calories in one sitting (your stomach that is) or add some digestive enzymes.. some ppl will say the nuts are not a whole meal well screw it i am not looking to go on stage i just wanna live healthy, and bulk up a bit and look bigger and stronger and healthier but i don't wanna eat 6 rigid meals without much variation
nuts, olive oil, fish fats, red meat in moderation (you can switch out steak and make a delicious duck breast glazed in honey and carrots glazed with honey/butter as well watch some masterchef episodes to inspire you and have a completely different meal), eggs, salad also good for you, some saturated fats from herb butter also can't hurt that much, and you need dessert every now and then (pannacotta yummie! or some creme brulee from the supermarket) or you'll go crazy
make your diet interesting and add some shakes you should see some nice weight gain
good luck man

Haha I drank a shot of extra virgin olive oil once, fugging nasty stuff. I recently decided to just eat whatever I want on leg day and dam it feels good. Easily 2500 cals on my first meal alone.Originally Posted by cumkwakka

Daddydee, I went through every page here and read every post and got to say there is some solid advice here. I am exactly you 5'11" and 155lbs. How is all of this working out for you? Have you switched your diet to the 3 big meals instead of many smaller meals throughout the day? If so how is this working out for you. I like the sound of having 3 bigger meals, makes my day easier. What type of results are you seeing so far? good gains? good strength? feeling great? I am planning on starting a regime in about 2 weeks, just hope i can afford to feed myself all of this food! haha Thanks, Any advice/criticism is good for me so long its constructive.

What's up gforu, yes alot of solid advice, I did try three meal (lean gain) diet. It wasn't ideal for me because sitting down to eat 3 1000+ meals a day just wasn't working , but some times I was forced to do it because of sleeping late then waking and eating heavy for the rest of that day. It all depends on the person, try it it may be good for you! I basically just stopped trying to eat so clean and I'm eating everything I see, but this is what I want to do and may not be for you, I'm not worried about being shredded. But I do eat as clean as possible and will clean it up when on epi cycle. It would be better to eat 3 big meals, saves time so I'm working at just having more cal rich food but still get the macros I need! If I eat junk I'll b overeating, too much fat!Originally Posted by 1gforu
Ive also been told to layoff the milk , but I'm going back to it, just the lactose free stuff this time , it's has good cals and protien. But eating good does make me feel alot better and you will feel the same, i meed to eat more but gains are good I'm at 157 now. Strength I want to improve but only training will solve that. Are you going to do a cycle?

Daddydee, Man i am just curious what kind of $ you are spending weekly on groceries? Im on a fixed income so i have to budget things out, Any idea of a weekly cost for foods? $100? lol it may seem dumb me asking this but food can cost alot of money really fast and its gonna do me no good if i cant afford to eat like i need to. lol

Lol I spend more than that but I'm a father, but ofcourse you may spend more if you consume more, but If you plan it good with cal rich food, you can get by, just start budgeting and only buy real food meats veg brown pasta/rice milk fish shrimp believe me just sit and make a plan , find out each foods macros then hit the numbers you need. I'm still getting it straight cause i eat all over the place, I'm not organized enough but I'm almost there.Originally Posted by 1gforu

you said "this is what I ate today" and that's your first mistake.
you need to write down what you're eating and eat it everyday, that way you will KNOW if you're eating like a bitch or not. If the scale goes up SLOWLY you're good. if it goes down then yes you're eating like a bitch. Bodybuilders don't just eat and 'hope' they're getting the proper nutrients, they make schedules and then see if the schedules take them where they want.
I only have one test cycle under my belt but i've gone from 155lbs to 230 lbs in 3 years, most of that was natural because I'm borderline obsessive compulsive with my food. And don't let some of the fat asses on here tell you to eat everything in sight either, that's stupid
10-29-2011, 11:13 PM
oh, and btw gainers = ****. there's no way in hell you could get me to use those again. chicken, beef, and flounder for protein. oats, brown rice, and sweet potatoes for carbs should cover most of your macros. I personally think I get enough fat from the beef and flounder so I don't add any nuts, but that's just me. 1 serving of fruit, and green veggies will go a long way too. look into post workout carbs too "maltodextrin/dextrose" blend is my favorite, and 40$ worth will last you about 6 months if you know where to shop.

Thanx noID I'm tryin to shake the shakes, but it's just an on the go , time saver sometimes. And I put up what I ate that day to describe what I had that day.
11-03-2011, 03:01 PM
I think it would be alot easier to judge if you just wrote it all how you ate it seperate meals.. ex: meal 1 eggs + rice.. Meal 2.. banana.. etc..
But yeah dude instant oats is garbage for dieting.. At least if you're eating the "Peach and oats" packets, those have sugar and whatnot.. MANUP! Get some real oatmeal (gluten free maybe?) and put cinamon on it
11-03-2011, 05:40 PM
this^ get some real oats! I eat mine cold, and whole grain! no microwaves at school!
my friends used to call it "야물" which is like animal fodder :P

add some P&B sandwiches and add more milk into your diet and you will see the weight being added on.
