I am having a beast of a time topping 170. For those who don't know my story. I having been lifting for about 8 years. I am a typical hardgainer. I am trying to prep for a show in the fall. I want to get up to about 180 before I start to cut. My diet looks as follows.

Meal 1: 1.5 cups of Kashii.
Meal 2: Nlarge Shake(2 scoops)
Meal 3: 6 oz Chicken and Rice, 16 oz milk
Meal 4: Nlarge Shake(2 scoops)
Meal 5: Nlarge Shake(2 scoops) in water post workout w/creatine and glutamine
Meal 6: Meat and carbs(ex. chix/rice or steak/potatoe)
Meal 7: Nlarge w/milk and 5 FOC's(pre bed) EDIT: I prefer cottage cheese here, but I'm currently out. I'm just looking for some slow digested protein during the night.

That is a breakdown of yesterday. I am real busy, so thats the reason for the shakes. I can't eat at work, but I always have time to pop a shake. Please help me gain weight!

EDIT: you can check out my journal for more background/info. I also have some pics in the member pics section.

EDIT: EDIT: I rarely cheat. What you see is what you get. I also eat naturaly pbj's, tuna, salmon, steaks, etc. Very clean. Yesterday meal 5 was chix with rice, 6 was chopped meat and milk. The rest was as stated.

That's a lot of NLarge.

I think you'll be getting something from homeyield in a few that may help.

Gal: yeah I'm sure Will can help me, he has the same plight of having to eat a house to gain weight. I try not to drink the before bed shake, I like to eat cottage, but I'm out of cottage. Other wise I drink the 2 at work, and the 1 post workout. It's really only 1.5 servings of Nlarge. A serving size is 4 scoops, but I take 2 scoops in each shake.

I think you might start having to add more whole foods with some of the shakes. Even if it just a pb sandwich or something. When I was getting my total calories up, I found it didn't matter what I was drinking, it was total calories I had eaten that I had to start tracking.

Will: I can chow down a PBJ or Tuna sand instead of a shake, anything more time intensive would be an issue at work.

I might even look at the trioplex bars. I'm not sure if they ever got the complete macros and stuff fixed but they taste great and tend to be on the healthy side (somewhat).
