why not a shake

milk
peanut butter
chocolate protein
banana

all of that could easily be a 1000 calorie shake...if you're in a hurry, shakes are usually more convenient

You don't have any break time at work? Most of us have pretty hectic schedules and find time to eat a lot. Shakes help a lot as well as calories dense foods like peanut butter and other high fat snacks.

If you eat too much peanut butter - You're going to get sick of it, FAST. Especially in those damn pb shakes. I want to puke just thinking back at those disgusting shakes.. What I do now is just get some protein bars. Usually have around 300 cals.

Shakes are the way to go for getting in a lot of calories when time is a problem. If they're out of the question for whatever reason, nuts are about the most calorifically dense food i can think of at the moment. Without resorting to eating pure lard of course...lol.

shakes definately the way to go,i drivea truck at night around 11-12 hours round trip each night so no i dont have breaks per say but i know im just driving down the road im just concearned about storage because its going to take 2-3 shakes to do the 3000 cals so im worried about milk going bad if i pre make them then throw them in the cooler.the tub of lard idea is not going to work because thats not exactly the clean eating i was hoping for,sounds tasty though lol. thanks guys im new here and im giong to be asking lots of stupid questions untill i get educated on some of this stuff so im sorry in advance

I checked with my Physician, my old college chemistry Prof., and Jesus, and they all said that that is not humanly possible.

Some truly funny comments here!

Why don't you buy a cooler for your truck and stuff it with a bunch of food, then you can eat all night.

I second that... I eat two tablespoons of peanut butter out of the container with two cups of milk... twice a day. Along with my kinda random diet, it satisfies my fat intake for the day and it totals to about 800 calories. (400 calories each) Thats snack.

Beef, Bread, cheese, onions, pickles, ketchup, mustard.

What part of that is unhealthy? If your daily cals are 3000 and you're training hard, I don't see anything wrong with it.

Beef that has coloring, flavoring, scent additives and anti-nauseants, should not be compared to the beef you would buy in a grocery store.

McDonalds is loaded with synthetic garbage. (I still eat it occasionally. :)
