Okay, I am 22 years old 5'10 and about 145. I have searched around the net and found many different diets to try. Currently I am using GNC Weight Gainer Gold 2200 (That's what the guy at GNC said to use, go figure). In addition to that, I am consuming around 3000 calories per day. For a total of 5000. Am I on the right track, I have only been doing this for a week and I just want to know if I am doing this right. Are there certain foods to concentrate on and others to stay away from? My target weight is around 180-190. Any suggestions as to diets or eating, or supplements would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Read the articles here, and read some posts to get an idea of what you need to know.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
"You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial

Think protein Downs, because its the key to unlocking your potential. I've seen so many people, eat big, pump hard, and make very little progress. Then they end up trying protein shakes. 30g of protein per shake 3 to 4 times a day, plus regular meals (200g easy). Your body will be thinking what the hell do I do with all this protein, but it'll realise soon enough, if you remind it by pumping hard in the gym, that it's time to get massive.
So many of my gym buddies have really gotten packed with beef - by doing the shakes.
