    Bulking secrets/methods

    Got any great methods or "secrets" you use when bulking, that really helped you to get a few extra calories, and pack on pounds? Skinny guys like me need this kind of help so it would be great to hear any input.

    sorry, maybe i wasnt totally clear on this. What i mean is like a particular method you use to add calories. For example, here is one of my own:
    I just make a massive bulking shake right before bed and swig it down, about 1200 calories. It really tops off the eveniing and makes me that much further ahead in bulking. Now, I know enough about bulking that I think Im doing it right (eating til I almost puke 6x per day.) but what about little secrets that really put you one up, really helped you along your way?

    when youre thristy, drink juice instead of water(extra calories).

    always eat past full, but not so much you'll puke.

    set an alarm in the middle of the night for a midnight snack, something tasty and quick like yogurt or PB, then go back to sleep.

    take a shot of olive oil twice a day.

    fish caps are easy extra healthy cals.

    drink whole milk, or 2% instead of 1% or skim.

    there is no valid excusefor missing a meal.

    Sounds like you have an extremely high metabolism, but that's not a bad thing, especially at your age. I would just keep doing what you are doing, eat plenty of protein and try to eat every 2 hours. Personally I try staying away from too many empty calories such as sugars, etc even while bulking, I try to stay somewhat lean all year round though. It's just a pain in the ass to try burning off that unwanted fat when it comes summer time, but it doesn't sound like you are having that problem. Sounds to me though that you've got your calorie intake high, which is what you want to do, if anything up it another 500 calories a day and see where that takes you. I was always a hard gainer until I hit mid 20's and then I started taking off. Stick with it and don't get discouraged.

    I tell ya, DAG oil is pretty decent and has minimal flavor. I can't stand straight olive oil, but DAG oil is very palatable.

    Natty stands for natural, it simply means peanut butter made with peanuts and without hydrogenated oils.

    Here's a tip, 1 gram of Carbs has 4 calories, 1 gram of protien also has 4 calories, 1 gram of fat has 9 calories. Adding some fat to your shakes in the form of olive/fish oil will really help you up the calories

    If this was any other website you would be banned right now for that

    How about contributing to the website with your post instead of spamming the place up.

    with that said, after reading all this thread I have to ask : you are counting these calories right?

    Probably not, but then again a spoonful would quickly be out of your mouth in about 1 second.
