    i'm 6' 165lbs, and am trying to bulk. i just started using fitday, and figured i eat around around 2800-3500 calories a day. i still cannot gain weight for the life of me though. i figure if i get 3500-4000 cals a day i should hopefully start gaining weight. what are some foods or snacks i can eat to help get in some more calories/carbs/protein? i already eat a lot of pasta, meat, oatmeal, poptarts, whey protein, ect. im going to start taking 50/50 maltodextrin/dextrose for PWO carbs as well.

    can anyone suggest other things i can eat to help put on some more weight? also, should i take whey protein and malto/dex 7 days a week, even on off days?

    any type of walnut, peanut, etc, is loaded with calories.. carry some of those around with you

    you need just as much protein on your off days as you do the days you train. Make sure you getting ~ 200g protein per day, and getting your EFA's. Somewhere in the range of 1.5-2.0g EPA/DHA per day. Other than that, eat things you enjoy, it will make it much easier to consistently get the amount of calories you need, which is the most important thing.
