I think real food is better than supplements

Cottage cheese is the life, man. Fat free, clean calories, 20g of protein to the cup... s'good. S'real good.

And make sure that peanut butter is natural, or at least whatever kind you find that doesn't include hydrogenated oils. The spelling of that term may be incorrect. Pretty much, the ingredients list should just be peanuts.

yea man, supplements roxorz if they are convenient and you can afford them and you can accept the somewhat less filling attribute of them.

^ Exactly. Supplement is the key word (i.e. not replacement).

I'm pretty sure that some people on these forums have liquid only diets. What exactly is the benefit of "real food" compared to getting protein from a suppliments?

I would work on your postworkout meal. I wouldn't have such complex carbs and drop the fat(butter).

when i did my bulk previously this year i was strugling to eat 5000 cals of solid food. i ended up making shakes to about 800cals and having them roughly 6 times a day. this meant i didnt have to spend all day in the kitchen and i didnt have to force feed which i dnt like doing if i can help. my bulk went fine i put on a bit of body fat but it is expected with a 28 pound gain.

He said "Peanut butter sandwhich OR Large protein shake w/ lots of protein"
not "Peanut butter sandwhich AND Large protein shake w/ lots of protein"
if he's having only protein shakes for 3 of his 6 meals that's not a solid diet.

You are right. Just drink 12 protein shakes a day and he'll be on his way to Mr. Olympia.

honestly... you are trying to be funny but coming off as a jackass. People on liquid or solid diets really only need to concern themselves with the amount of calories they are taking it... it doesnt matter if they come from a MRP, or a chicken club.

Sorry. I was just trying to say it's not a good thing to rely on supplements too much. I know they are useful. I down a protein shake post-work out too.
