Chase, write down your calories rather than just typing out what you're eating.

Until you add everything up, assume you are not eating enough. Because I still don't think you are.

I'm sure I'm not. Not even close in fact. It's gotten to the point I'm trying to eat large amounts and am getting full (a feeling I'm not really used to).

This morning :

- 32 oz nestle chocolate milk (1400 or so calories and like 120 g of protein)
- lots of water
- 4 egg cheese omlette (no clue)
- Cliff bar (200 cal?)
- fish oil, ginko bilboa, 1-a-day

That's it thus far.

it's a waste to be eating hundreds of grams of protein per sitting; your body is probably only capable of digesting 40-50 grams, if that. spread it out into smaller meals. eat every other hour if you have to.

also, im getting the feeling this is why you thought you were eating 12000 calories a day; i think youre overestimating, which can be dangerous if youre eternally skinny and trying to bulk. most chocolate milks are something like 200 cal and 10g of protein per 8 oz. i kinda doubt 32 oz of your chocolate milk is 1400 calories and i REALLY doubt 32 oz of anything gets you 120g of protein. i dont think you could even liquify a steak into 32 oz and get 120 g of protein out of it

That I can do. I'm going to see if i can buy those nestle things in bulk. If I could have one of those every day, that would be a hell of an additional supplement. I'm sure I could also make protein shakes that were as effective but they wouldn't be as tasty

Had a big chicken sandwhich at lunch with fries and honey mustard. Almonds as snacks throughout the day. Sourdough pretzels also seem like a decent snack?

plan out your meals better.

You need calories but there are better ways to get them.

Drink the gallon of milk a day. Drink it with every meal and you'll get there.

Eat like 6 eggs and a cup of oats for breakfast and a few scoops of natual pb and milk.

For a middle morning snack eat some almonds, chicken, brown rice.

late afternoon eat more meat, breads, rice, potatoes etc

workout

drink a big protein shake with milk

eat dinner, much like other meals

before bed drink more milk and eat some pb&j sandwiches.

I think you can eat pretty dirty since you're metabolism is high. Do this for a few weeks and see how the results come along.

track everything. Write down the calories and make a spread sheet to make it easy for you.

This way you'll know your totals of cals, protein, fat, and carbs. You will see everything. If you do this you will realize what you're getting.

replace the fries with another chicken sandwich. eat beef jerky instead of pretzels. almonds are fine

There are many apps for your smart phone that make tracking nutrition easy that you might look into. You search for what you just ate, select the portion from the list, and it adds up all the nutrition information at the end of the day.

I use a free one for the iPhone called MyFitnessPal.

Hey Chase, here is an example of my consumption yesterday for my bulk diet (..in no particular order); sometimes I have to move certain meals around because of when I workout (..and I still think that I'm a bit under)
  • Corn Chex
  • Milk
  • Egg
  • Egg whites
  • Oatmeal
  • Whole Wheat Bagel
  • Cream Cheese (..1/3 fat)
  • Peanut Butter
  • Tuna (..2 cans)
  • Brown Rice
  • Chicken (..8 oz.)
  • Casein Shake
  • Whey Shake (..Pre-Workout)
  • Apple (..Pre-Workout)
  • Whey & Casein Mix (..Post-Workout)
  • Gatorade (..Post-Workout)
  • Ground Beef (..6 oz. of 93/7 lean)
  • Taco Shells
  • Cheese
  • Lettuce & Tomato
  • Hamburger Patties
  • Hamburger Buns
  • Broccoli
  • Casein Shake
  • Almonds


I'm missing a couple of meals from that list, but I'm basically eating every 1.5 to 2 hours. I'm consuming around 3700-4000 calories a day (..trying to muster up 4300), and my breakdown is something like: 310g protein/105g fat at 180 lbs. currently.

I regularly consume 2500 calories a day to maintain my definition and currently musculature, so to add another 1500-1800 calories a day (..clean) has been work.

You would only develop this much muscle, even as an Olympic swimmer:
