    You mean like what you get when ask a question on a forum?. I could see if it was a certain specific question about a supplement which was asked in that sponsors sub-section. Yes that would be a good question to go with. But if you ask a loaded question that is extremely general in nature than you are definitely going to get thousands of individual answers to that one question depending on the person who responds. At least with a book or an article you can check out the author and his or her credentials before you blindly take the advice. This board is more geared towards supplements and supplement questions and less on actual training and nutrition. For training and nutrition I have always done my own research, just going on a message board and asking around isn't going to get you very far and is the easy way out without any actual work involved.


    *Note:Don't anyone get their panties in a bunch based on my opinion. It is just an opinion, we all have them including me which was kind of my point of this post. Try not to take offense to how I feel about or use this board.


  2. I'm not getting mad and I agree with you completely T-Bone on how the Internet is a great place to start If you are looking for a place to start for such a broad question. I'm just saying its good to at least present ideas to someone newer to the world of fitness. Then I agree with you, it is up to them to formulate their own research and conclusions from that research to apply to their routine

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  5. eat more calories than you spend, only way to increase your weight.
    there are many people who call themself "hardgainers", but the fact is that most of those are not eating enough to gain.

    Eat Eat Eat! And also, make sure the protein you take is a Mass Gainer as opposed to just a standard Whey. It should have at least 300 cals/serving or so

  7. I'm not sure if someone mentioned this because I didn't feel like reading through every post.

    One thing that has helped me is to download a calorie counter app for my iphone. It has a search function for all sorts of foods and a scanner that will use the barcode and download the nutrtion facts then you adjust your serving size and track it on your phone. You can set daily goals and all sorts of stuff. Without it I can definitely say I wouldn't be eating all my calories every day. Having it is more than just a reminder to eat. It's also a method to help reach attainable daily goals that lead to achievement of long term goals.

  8. Yea I had it to, very helpful but couldn't measure home cooked meals now I just keep track of my weight with it. One good one is myfitnesspal.

  9. Yeah hard balance I have the weight gain over fat, debating on lowering my carb intake heavily....

    Maybe about 150g a day wonder if that would work....
    Just takes weeks at a time tweaking to see what works.

After you are eating enough and find yourself gaining some good weight, that's probably when you should introduce supplements. For now, eat more food. You may not be used to eating a lot, which is fine, so to get more food in througout the day you'll have to eat more often. If you are busy this may be a challenge, so find what works for you.

    You also want to be healthy so don't eat 1000calorie big macs and think you got your bases covered. You may find yourself feeling like poo if you go that route. Eat good food like oats, eggs, peanut butter, MEAT, chicken, and lots of milk...among other things.

    Know that it's not easy or simple as people put it. It takes some conditioning and good planning to be able to get in as much food as its required to get big, so expect that you will have to take a couple of weeks to adjust.

    Also, stop training so much. 3 days a week and get plenty of rest. You don't grow in the gym so beating your body up everyday is counter-productive. And don't be one of those people that goes to a machine and does a set, then moves to another machine and does another set there, and keeps wandering the gym doing sets here and there. Find a good (proven) weight training program and follow it. Don't make up your own.

    Bodybuilding is a marathon not a sprint.

    My 2 cents. Good luck!
    Doesnt get any more cut and dry than this. EXCELLENT advice!

  12. To gain weight. I can't cook eggs. Would it be the same to blend them raw?

    Man sit cho country ass down and

    I just gave him advice that I use.
    Myself I usually wake up in the am and mix a gainer shake in milk 20oz with a banana and p butter, low fat/cal ice cream, egg whites (carton liquid) and a banana. That's well over 45g protein, 1000 or so cals and 40g fats and about 150g carbs roughly.
    That's what I do.
