alright from all the strenght coaches i have read from(mark rippetoe, bill starr, super squats) they all recomend eating pounds upon pounds of meat and gallons of mil each day. im not really trying to gain such huge amounts of fat aswell, but i am on mark rippetoes routine should i do a normal bulking diet. lie 1g of protein per lb of BF or should i do rippetoes lots of milk, mac and cheese, and hamburger helper?

Eat more than usual, if you don't gain weight eat more than that until you do.

This is the key, just work your way up to a weight gain level your comfortable with. I have mine set at about 1 pound/week and I enjoy it. Took me about a month to find that sweet spot but it was worth it.

How do you know you'll gain too much fat on his diet? Follow it and find out for yourself. The guy is real good at this stuff. BTW, to gain muscle, you HAVE to gain fat. Much like, in order to live, you HAVE to breathe.

In all seriousness, with that attitude, you'll never get big. You don't need to worry about it. People don't accidentally get big. It takes a lot more work than people realize.

Yes but you want to gain weight.

Just eat more healthy foods like chicken, beef, whole wheat pasta. If it makes you feel better about gaining fat, take it slow.

so eat less than that. Why are you making this so complicated? Also you need to post pictures of that, or learn to take a **** during your 2 week bulk.

At that weight it's easy. I thought we were talking about a man trying to gain weight. Gain 20lbs when you weigh 250+ and you'll see how tough it is.

But, you don't need to be that heavy, so...

I'm not trying to sound like an ass, but you did not gain 20lbs in 2 weeks.

You can gain 20lbs in 2 weeks, easy. Especially if you're hydrated and eating like a bird. It's not all muscle, but it's doable, no doubt. Especially at that weight.

HELL YEAH it's doable!!! Anyone who says it isn't is dead wrong. Hell, I can gain 10 lbs in a weekend. :cool:
