    Oven baking is superior. I have yet to try a real grill, though--apt. liver, and all.

    It seems like you aren't giving your arms time to rest: if you do a chest and back day right after shoulders and arms, you're working a bunch of the same muscles. If you want to keep the days so...

    Are there any heavier guys (in the 250 range) who are doing 2x? I'm 6'4, 230, ~13%, and that's on a cut: when bulking I get around 250, and even a 1.6 at 250 is like 410, I think, and I'm nowhere...

    Skim Milk blended with dry milk is a great weight gainer: I used to blend 3 cups of skim with 1 cup of dry, chocolate syrup and 4 tsps PB. About 1000 cals, 70 g protein, and good as hell, though ice...

    I would think that cottage cheese, yogurt, whey and eggs would provide sufficient protein if you ate enough of them. I have days when that's all the protein I get, and I can still get around 250g...

    It's a mix of peanuts, egg whites, wheat germ, and flax oil. It's a lot like powerbutter.

    Naturally More Natty PB

    Has anyone else tried this stuff? It's really good, though expensive and a little lower-cal than regular natty PB (170 v. 200). I just eat it with a spoon, so I'm not sure how well it spreads.

    Kashi is good for cutting, and probably no worse than any number of disgusting healthy things (like olive oil--bleah).

    I really like their 12" Roast Chicken Sub with double meat. It's not too bad nutrient-wise, either--something like 900 cals, ~60-70 g protein

    I'm probably the only cat, but I hatehatehate olive oil period, and it sucks more in a shake, because it seems to settle, even when blended, so I get a big sip of olive-y chocolate at the end :( ...

    I'd agree too: why don't you try mixing your protein shakes with 2% milk? Or some PB on the crackers? A few cups of 2% would add about 500 cals, I think...

    calories: too many/not enough...?

    Hi, all. This is my first time posting here, but I thought it'd be appropriate b/c my measurements are pretty similar to another guy who posted who was 6'4 and 220.

    Age: 27
    Height: 6'4
    Weight:...
