Depends if your bulking or cutting, if either. If your bulking i'd say go milk, high in cals but with plenty of protien. Stick with 1% if your trying to limit your fat from it, somone said its easier to drink cals etc than eat them at times. So true.
If your cutting however i'd say stick extra some oats or peanut butter mixes in there, clean and calorie dense.

I have the same problem. The key is to get up early. 7 or 8. And eat every 2.5 to 3 hours till bed time. My stomach got tiny from cutting last spring into summer and bulking into the fall and winter was tough getting all that food in.

Yeah go for a homemade weight gainer. The ones I make usually have some consists of these basic ingredients: milk, whey powder, pb, eggs, olive oil, cottage cheese, yogurt, ice cream, dry milk, bannanas and sometimes oats (although I find it easier just to eat oats by itself. I've been using the recipe suggested recently by I believe HanhB and its pretty tasty. There are plenty of others out there just use the search engine.

you need to systematically increase your stomach volume by steadily eating (or drinking) more cals...but if your having trouble meeting cal requirements its easier drinking cals then eating them...go with a homemade weight gainer-type shake...

What about eating nuts? They are very small portions and full o' calories.

just watch the salt content of nuts.

also, if you're trying to bulk, your carbs are WAY too low. Bulking phases usually put you at 2-3g of carbs per pound of bodyweight...it doesn't even look like you're at 1g.

I've also been using the recipe HahnB posted. It tastes awesome, and you can get over 1,000 calories and 60 g of protein easily and it goes down in less than a minute :)

Wuss! Stuff your face. Do it now! Why did you even bother posting? You should take that time and go to the kitchen to eat.

You're a wise man. Peanut butter is the key. You put 4 tbsps of peanut butter in that ****er and you wouldn't taste a half pound of limburger cheese if it was in there.

Peanut butter is the key.

Agreed. You don't even need to put it in a shake; just start downing it by the spoonful.

Yeah thanks again for posting it, as your recipe/ratios seem much better than anything I had come up with in the past. PB represent!! I think the eggs add a nice flavor as well, but oh my am I a gassy individual. I feel sorry for those who come in contact with me. :cry:

Take this with a grain of salt b/c I have a tremendous appetite. But try to get as many convenient dips, seasonings and toppings as you can in your diet. Make them healthy diet foods if you want or more liberal junk type foods as a last alternative.

Stuff like salsa, french onion dip, cream cheese, butter, syrup all the good stuff you can think about. Eat that with every meal essentially and pick really dense carb sources like bagels etc. to go with it. Again, how healthy or 'clean' you make those choices is up to you and your specific goals.

Usually it takes me more like 8000-9000 calories to really feel sated and comfortably full. But when I finally get to that point, I notice my proclivity is toward the most delectable foods I can think of to the point of wanting to avoid anything even remotely bland. Hence where my suggestion comes from.

eating is a chore, plan out when you will eat and then execute!

The easiest way to calories is imho tablespoons of olive oil. Have 2-3 with every meal, and you’re up a truckload of calories. I agree that you probably should eat more carbs though, but that is tougher.
