what are the best foods for bulking up???

1. Foods that taste good to you.
2. Foods that are heavy in weight(steaks, fish, milk, cheese, cow)
3. Foods that give nutrution and not just high protein (Salad, nuts, peanut butter, wheat, peas, beans, lentils, garbanzos, soy beans, tofu,)
4. Foods that contain low fats or healthy fats (fish oils, soy oils, canola)
5. Eat a **** load of it all!

Anything that has more than 200 cals per 150g serve, so just eat 2lbs of it 6 times a day...

To start with you have to keep in mind that while you do want to eat a lot of food you also want to keep your metabolism active. With that said you need to alternate HIGH, MEDIUM, and LOW calorie days.

Long Grain Rice, whole wheat cereals, green vegetables, chicken, steak (eye round), PB are all staples in my diet and they are proving to be very beneficial to my current bulking routine.

Check out my journal for more on diet and training

Could you please provide some context to this statement, and how it relates to gaining muscle? Perhaps a physiological explanation?

Just like muscles your metabolism can get use to the same intake (training) and once it finds out that things are not changing it will not work as hard. If you talk to any middle aged person their biggest complaint is that their metabolism has slowed way down, in turn making it harder to keep the unwanted weight off. so in my opinion it would be better to address this right off instead of trying to figure it out later.

Also if you alternate your caloric intake your body is more likely to absorb the nutrients from your meals due to the fact that everyday it is supplied with different amounts of the nutrients.

That's not based at all in physiology. I'm looking for an explanation as to how or why this happens in the human body.

You know, something that explains the laws of thermodynamics don't apply.

Your last sentence is quite something, again, I've never seen anything that would show that to be true. Could you perhaps explain, again using basic physiology, or perhaps a study?

I'm not suprised, since there is no physiological explanation, and the information you posted is pretty much rubbish.

It's easier to get calories through liquid. It may cost a bit more, but drink 8 scoops of protein with milk every day on top of regular meals. That should do the trick...or it least it was for me until I ran out of nitrean (and I have to take this older vanilla stuff which can't shake a stick to my chocolate nitrean).

Why watch the fat in them?

With regard to the high, medium and low carb days, while many of us eat this way out of comfort (hand goes up), my feeling is that whever partioning benefits there may be over conventional eating paradigms would be at best minimal.

But it really IS a comfortable way to eat, particularly if you're one of those souls without an "off" switch to appetite.

I honestly think the best foods for bulking are the same for cutting. You just gotta eat more of it. may not be as quick but your gut will thank you.
