    Advice on what to eat to pack on the calories and what to take for post-work out protein? Right now I'm just taking whey after my workout on the days I do lift.. They days I'm recovering I drink a shake slightly before bed so that my body absorbs the protein slower and doesn't waste it. I am also eating 4-5 meals a day in which I'm trying to bump up to 6. My only problem is I work full time from 7:30AM to 4PM.. Doesn't leave much time to eat.. just some thoughts on high calories snacks that are easy that I can make at work? Open to any suggestions from people who have seen large personal results/gains doing whatever they're suggesting..

    Thanks guys! :hsd:

    High calorie protein bars, cashews, peanuts, figs, granola, peanut butter, almonds the list is endless.

    After workout- 50 grams of whey and 100 grams of either dextrose or vitargo or gatoraid. Some people drink whey, oatmeal and chocolate milk.

    Eat a pound of meat 3x daily. Eat a few meals in between that. Easy as pie.

    Well some of my days I don't have oppurtunity to eat like you so this is what I usually have for snacks on those days.

    Beef jerky, peanut butter, alomonds, peanuts, cashews, granola bars, protein bars, and some protein powder.

    I also drink 50-75 grams of some form of dextrose(mainly gatorade) mixed with creatine. Then 10-15 mins later my 50 grams of protein

    My av is so small you can't see it!
    I always add 3-4 bananas to each of my shakes.
