Gallon of Milk a Day...
Anyone here ever do the Gallon of Milk a Day (GOMAD) diet? I tried it in Cuba. Didnt notice much weight gain, didnt **** my definition at all. Was interesting.
We have our Physical Fitness Test (PFT) this Friday, so Im thinking about starting up GOMAD again. I will be on my H-Drol stack in a few weeks, and my lifting is all Olympic lifts, and supplemental lifts for Oly Lifting. I dont know the exact science with GOMAD, but from what i've heard, the free fatty acids help release igf-1...which is why you'll have whole milk or 1-2%.
I might try it as an experiement. GOMAD, plus hdrol stack, and Oly lifting (and copious amounts of running, thanks to the Corps)...Sounds like a good combination.

There's a decent amount of calories in 2% milk, for a gallon you're looking at ~2000kcal, hence why the GOMAD routine is good for packing on weight (liquid calories are easier to take in).
There is some evidence that caseinates help release IGF-I but at the end of the day if you're taking in a surplus amount of calories and lifting you'll grow.

I have heard/seen people doing it. I always hear warnings about sodium is all, but then again its a short term deal.
Interesting thhough, half a gallon of 2% a day would be an extra 1000kcal? That would be pretty amazing for bulks.

I personally would be confined to the bathroom with that much lactose, but a 'hardgainer' could easily add those cals to their diet just by drinking milk at every meal.
I don't think the sodium is a problem unless they have circulatory issues.

1K worth of cals is always welcome. Then again I have all but cut cardio to allow this weight to be put on. I think milk may have just become my other weapon beside Tuna!

I would do this in a heart beat id use whole milk tho even tho im not used to it its higher in calories and im a ecto. however convincing my mom to get 7 gallons of milk a week isn't easy shes already pissed at the amount im eating

1 cup oats
2 scoops protein
1/2 cup cottage cheese
water to desired thickness
Almost 1k drinkablecals with roughly a 40/40/20 split without tons of lactose or sodium (inexpenive too).
Add some psyllium and powdered greens and your doing your body a favor at the same time as bulking instead of consuming in excess.
Just my opinion in the matter.

Price in what? Dollars or your health?
1 cup of sugar is almost 1k cals and the cost is but pocket change.
My point was to consider an alternative that has a myriad of beneficial health aspects, packs the calories desired (and in a nice ratio btw) and is still in a drinkable form.

I do very often actually. On the way to the gym I pick up a gallon of either skim, or lowfat, and sip it over a 4 hour period or so. Easy protein when in a hurry, and def can use the calories as I usually have a hard time getting enough in.

I drink lots of skim milk, maybe a quarter a day, but not a gallon. Main reason is the sugar.
12/g sugar in crap load of servings per gallon.
