    I am currently 162 lbs about 6'1" and fed up with it. So I am fully commited to put some weight on. I have tried before, I lifted for 8 months really hard, I got stronger, but only a couple pounds bigger, I'm hoping because I never really added to my diet. So here is what I'm starting on now:

    Morning:
    25g protien shake
    25g can of chicken breast
    Oatmeal or cream of wheat, a bagel, some fruit, whatever the caffeteria has

    Lunch:
    Whatever school is serving, usually a decent meal, hamurger or something.

    Dinner:
    Again whatever school is serving, pasta, pizza, chicken, whatever it is I can eat a lot of it.
    50g protien shake


    Obviously I will be lifting throughout the week, I feel I have a good workout that gets my full upper body and some legs throughout the week.

    I am not worried about putting on fat, in fact I would welcome a few % more body fat.

    So if anyone has anymore suggestions on what I should be doing that would be great. Thanks for the help.

    I'm pretty sure I get more than 2,000 a day. I eat tons for dinner, but thats really the only time I can eat till I can't eat anymore.

    If you're a hardgainer you may have to take up to 4000-7000 calories a day, depends on your metabolism, start your calories out at 3500-4000 and eat that amount for a week and see if you gain any weight, if you dont, add another 500 everyday for another week and repeat the process until you start gaining, it ain't rocket surgery :p

    Well its hard while living on a school campus. I have about 35 hours of classes a week, no fridge, and minimal food storage. I'm eating everything in sight though. I figure I'm doing about 3500 every day this last week. I just don't know what to eat, besides massive amounts of PB&J sandwiches.

    unless you have been counting calories for a while you dont have an accurate gauge as to "how many calories you ate." believe me, its very easy to stuff your face multiple times a day and be barely breaking 2k calories. find nutrition labels, get on fitday, whatever you have to do in order to track caloric intake. get familiar with the nutrition content of foods you eat daily and keep a list. gaining weight can be laborious but if you put in the time you will see results. good luck!

    35hrs of class? How? How many credits is that?

    You are going to need to eat a lot more than that. Buy canned foods and keep your room stocked. If you want it bad enough you will make it work.

    Going to school? Get a George Foreman grill and a membership to Costco. Boneless, Skinless chick breasts are you friend. While you're at it get some burgers, too.

    Like I said, no fridge room, so that means no freezer room. No where to even use a grill.

    But thanks for the help guys, I got some good ideas on what to be working on now.

    You can get a moderate-sized Foreman Grill for around $10-$15 that will easily fit anywhere in your dorm. You can cook your shit on your computer desk if you want to. As for no room for a fridge, just how small is your dorm? Pics? IMO that would be most beneficial for you if you could eat in your dorm. It'd be better than the crap they serve at the cafeteria. Probably cheaper, too, but I don't really know. :dunno:
