    Up your total caloric intake by adding in added carbs along with the protein. Adjust your training (have you been using the current training program prior to the start of this bylk?). Also how many calories are you taking in (and are you an endo/beginner?) because thats a lot of weight for 1 month.

    Start adding olive oil to your morning shakes. Go slowly with about 1 TBLSP (118 calories) a day to check your tolerance. Increase as needed. Heed my warning on going slow or you will wind up with a case of the hershey squirts. This is the method they use on the DC training when weight gain stalls and it seems to work very well.

    I agree, you're in a totally new caloric requirement category for bulking at your weight class now; compared to when you started. That's an insane amount of weight to put on by the way.

    You will get some from cooking but when you work up to 3-4tbsp it is hard to get that much from cooking.

    Hard to believe you did that with no supps even being that low, but i'm a hard gainer haha so it seems impossible to me. i'll take your word for it though. good job bro. But once you start getting bigger it becomes harder and harder to gain weight. so no offense, just dont expect that 210 to come as easy as the 180

    If your doing this naturally, there is NOWAY you could possibly put on that much muscle on in 34 days. Most likely, most of your gains you have made is water and fat. Realistically, if your natural, you should be aiming for about a 1 pound a week. The only two situations i could think of where this would be fiesable is if:
    1. Your new to training, and your a genetic FREAK
    2. Muscle memory, you've been at that build before

    "If your training naturally, you can't force muscle on, it's a long process, consistency is key"

    my advice to you is to figure out your maintance calorie intake, add 500 er so calories on top of that. Every week weigh in. If your up in weight, continue with that calorie intake. if your at the same weight, up the calorie intake another 250 to 500 calories. This process will allow you to maximize lean mass gains, while keepin fat gains at bay.
