    25 cents each is a pretty damn good deal, BTW.
    If I buy bars, I go for below 75 cents per bar.
    Strange enough, this is how I buy my hookers.


  2. Is it also ok if i have a big meal like 30 mins before i go to sleep. Ive heard from some people its ok and some people No.

  3. If you are looking to gain weight - that's fine.
    If looking to lose fat - have protein and some good fats only, no carbs.

  4. I like to eat some oatmeal before bed. Like a cup. You can take a little protein with that too. Ideally casein, but whey will work.

    Eat, if you can't gain weight eat whenever you can, don't sweat all the details unless you start getting fat. It's very individual, some can eat and eat and barely put on a lb, while other hard gainers have to be very careful about timing or they just pack on fat. Just try to keep your cals from fairly good sources, and get 'em up to at least 3000. The bars are fine but don't rely on them, once your used to taking in higher cals start replacing bars/mrps etc with real food. Assess whether or not it's enough then add the mrps etc back in with the increased calories and repeat. You have to find what's going to pack about 1lb a week onto your frame. Tracking your cals and macros should be your biggest concern, keep learning along the way and when you need to adjust you'll have the knowledge to know how.

  6. Hey i found this gainer on ebay Im probally going to buy it but i want to check with you guys first on your opinion.

    The link isnt working but its on ebay and the item# is 330018708638

  7. Err... I posted this on another topic already, but I think that it will apply in here as well. This is what I eat when I'm on the build... I wrote it @ 172lbs. or so. So, it's based for someone around 175lbs. (170-180). Here it is:

    Meal 1:

    2 scoops of whey protein in 16oz. Of skim milk
    3 eggs cooked
    2 cups of oatmeal (cooked)


    Meal 2:

    1 South Beach Diet Meal Replacement Bar


    Meal 3:

    4oz. Chicken breast, or 4oz. Turkey breast
    4 pieces of 100% whole wheat bread
    1 cup of cooked brown rice


    Meal 4:

    1 large baked potato (plain)
    ¾ cup of fat-free cottage cheese


    Meal 5 (Pre-workout):

    2 scoops of whey protein in water (or meal replacement shake –more calories)


    Meal 6:

    8oz. Of Extra-lean ground beef
    2 cups of cooked broccoli
    2 large baked potatoes (plain)
    4 pieces of white bread


    Meal 7 (Before bed):

    2 scoops of whey protein in water
    1 cup of oatmeal (cooked)
    1 banana


    Now, you could eat exactly what I have posted up there. However, you won't need those levels to grow. That would be a little overkill. Ideally, you'd want to cut probably 1100-1200 calories off of that. If you decide to do that, just remember that it was set up pretty close to 50/30/20 carbs%/protein%/fat%. I don't know a lot about what good mass gainer formulas are out right now, I never take 'em. I'm a firm believer in shoveling whole food down the 'ol gullet.

    This kid is ~135lb so your diet doesn't help much...What I would suggest is he does the following -
    Bodyweight x1.5=Carbohydrates in grams
    Bodyweight x1.25=Protein in grams
    Bodyweight x0.5=Fat in grams
    That would mean 202.5g C/168.75g P/67.5g F = 2092.5kcal

    If we're keeping this simple I'd have his diet look like this-
    Breakfast - 80g Oats/Rice/Pasta, 5 Whole Eggs
    Mid-Morning - 50g Tuna
    Lunch - 120g Oats/Rice/Pasta, 150g Chicken, 1 tbsp Flax Oil
    Mid-Afternoon - 50g Tuna
    Dinner - 80g Oats/Rice/Pasta, 75g Chicken
    Mid-Evening - 50g Tuna
    Supper - 40g Oats, 45g Casein, 1 tbsp Flax Oil

    I'm not sure when this guy works out so I assume it's around lunch time, if he doesn't want to eat whole foods post workout he can replace the lunch meal with the following -
    120g Oats, 45g Whey protein, 1 tbsp Flax Oil, 200-300ml milk.

  10. Agreed, that's why I said to drop the calories . I didn't have time last night to do the math on it.

  11. Tuna, Tuna, Tuna everywhere, aaaaah! I eat about 1 can a week myself, canned chicked, chicken, steak, beef jerky etc etc there are other choices to put in place of the tuna (just in case he's not a tuna lover like yourself).

    Yeah I know, I just couldn't figure how to drop ~1000kcal from that diet and guessed he might not know either.

    Who said I like tuna? "No Pain, No Gain"

  13. Tuna cookies??

  14. LOL, I don't think even I would be able to take that kind of punishment
