    How do you get your food down?

    I'm amazed when I read on here about people that can take down 4000 calories a day. I'm in complete awe!

    Right now its about 1pm
    and I've taken down the following:
    .75 cup protein shake + 16oz water
    2tbsp oil (hemp, flax)
    2 cups oats + 1 cup water +2tbsp honey
    16 oz coffee
    1 servings fish oil
    .5 lb ground turkey breast
    1 cup brown rice
    1 cup pasta
    1 cup lettuce
    2 piece of bacon
    1 chicken breast

    and still sitting here in front of me I have
    1 cup pasta
    1 cup veal
    .5 lb ground turkey breast
    1 cup brown rice
    1 serving fish oil
    I have to get down by 3pm to clear my stomach in time for my preworkout shake before the gym!
    forget about pw, dinner and my late night feeding
    *LOL* thats another huge list!

    and this is just to maintain!

    How do you guys do it?!

    It only starts out difficult. You have to start using a strict time table for your eating. And a bucket or two of N-Large wouldn't kill you either. Here's how I started out:

    8am Breakfast
    1cup oatmeal (1cup dry, it was much more when done)
    6-8 egg whites scrambled
    half serving of N-Large

    9:45am
    1 serving N-Large

    11am Lunch
    1lb (+/-) ground turkey
    1lb steamed carrots
    as much rice as I could cook in the pot (id guess 2cups dry but I dont know)

    12:45pm
    1 serving N-Large

    2:00pm Snack
    half serving N-Large
    either candy bars or some nutrition bar (3 or 4 usually)

    4:00pm Gym

    5:30pm Dinner
    2lb Foreman Grilled Chicken Breast
    1lb Steamed Carrots
    1 (yes, exactly 1) broccoli crown (broccoli is gross)
    6 potato mashed potatos (hope that makes sense)

    6:45pm
    1 serving N-Large

    9:00pm Bedtime
    half serving N-Large
    1 apple sliced and smothered in peanut butter


    The real key is that you don't have to eat fast, but you have to eat. There were a lot of days where by the time I finished a meal, it was time for the snack or shake or whatever. And by the time I finished that, the next meal was upon me. I would literally eat all day long for almost 2 weeks. Then the lifting caught up and large amounts of food just seemed like "just enough."

    The faster I eat, generally the more I can put down. That goes for drinking shakes too. Sure, the bowel movements are hell, but you've gotta do what ya gotta do.

    Yeah but did it start that way? I can do it now, but in the beginning I could never eat volume fast. It would eventually just backup and I've have a roadblack in my throat.

    SF are you sure your not a Prolab representative?!

    4000 cals is a sinch so long as your not doing it with rabbit food, Whole eggs, PB and whole milk will easily get you up to 4000 cals along with your other food. Also like others have said set strict times aside for eating and ensure that you get your food in 6-8 meals. It will be no problem, and some McDonalds won't hurt
    The only limits are the one's you place on yourself...

    I use a central line in the neck. Much easier to get those extra calories.

    Combine that with weight gainer, and protein suppositories, and I rake in upwards of 8500 cals a day.

    its hard to get to 4000 cals when youre eating turkey, chicken, and rice.

    include some beef, peanuts, PB, Salmon or other fish.

    eat foods higher in calories.

    dammit put some butter on that bread.

    4000+ is easy provided you just eat whatever.

    Mine while I was somewhat watching what I ate:

    1 apple
    2 bananas
    6 slices of bread
    1 cup cottage cheese
    4 large eggs
    3 servings of whey
    2 bowls of grits
    7 cups of milk
    1 cup of mozzarella cheese
    2 servings of Muscle Milk
    2 tbsp of natty PB
    1 cup of oats
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 orange
    1 can of tuna
    2 cups of lettuce
    8 oz of beef

    I'm not sure of the exact meal combinations, but some of that was shakes and so forth. Total was ~4400 calories, 159g F/386g C/354g P, at 33%/33/33 ratios.

    I have wondered from time to time if an IV would be a cool way to eat all day.

    Hehe, it would seem like an IV would be an easy way to get calories and maintain a near perfect metabolism.

    Unfortunately, there's a little something called "infection" that puts a hamper on that deal.

    Fat is good, just not too much saturated fat, and keep clear of the trans fats too.

    Calories are energy! A measurement in the metric system! More fat = more energy. More energy = more intensity whilst lifting. More intensity whilst lifting = grand results.

    I speak solely from a "I want size and strength" standpoint than general health. I'm told eating sticks of butter would be bad for the heart.

    It takes time, and getting used to. I never thought I would be able to eat 5000 calories a day, but I did it regularly this past summer. This is what I ate:

    Whole eggs (like 8 in a day)
    Lots of 1% milk
    Lots of oats
    Brown Rice
    chicken breasts
    tuna
    protein shakes
    olive oil
    yams
    "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?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "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."

    The cleaner the food.....the harder it is to take in more calories.
