I am 5'7" 145-148 lbs.
I wanna gain a good 15 pounds of lean muscle.
I am taking weight gainer in the morning, and a protein/glutamine shake after my workout.
I am also eatting about 2000 on average calories (mostly chicken meals) add that to my shakes it is close to 3000 calories.
Lastly, I am doing a low rep high weight routine since sept (i am on week 5)
Does anyone have any suggestions to help me gain my goal?
Keep eating and keep working out. Personally, I'd choose whole food over weight gainer.

I would love to eat more food, but 1. i cant afford it, and 2. i dont have the time to eat that much being in college and having such an erratic schedule
real food can be cheaper. But I agree with the prepartion thing.
"It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"
"Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
"Bah. You know I hate poor people."
what type of food would u suggest then....
I have always had a problem getting "good" calories into my diet.
Like what would a typical day of eatting consist for all you guys?
Are you getting adequate carbs post-workout? You can find dextrose at any brewery supply shop for about a buck a pound. Add 60 or so grams in with your protein shake. VERY important.
As far as getting dextrose in my post-workout shake, I just throw in some fresh/frozen fruit. Is this enough/the proper kind?
I personally think you may not be getting enough cals - but too many more may make you fat - everyone is different - if you really are getting these cals from high quality food then that's great.
To gain weight I suggest you really focus on the "proper" exercises - squat, deadlift, bench, chins, dips........
