    I basically need between 4500 and 5000 calories per day to gain weight. I don't want to be eating like 5 meals a day. What would be the easiest way of eating that many calories??? is there some kind of shake I can make myself to eat a bunch of calories??

    thanks

    Muscle Milk Protein Shakes have quite a bit of calories in them.

    2 scoops Muscle milk + 2 cups of milk + 2 bananas + lots of oats + 2 scoops of ice cream = win (maybe not the ice cream?)

    Two of these a day, plus as many regular meals between as possible:

    (blended, obviously)

    1 cup of steel cut oats (preblended before other ingredients are added)
    1.5 cups vitamin D milk
    3 scoops whey
    2 TBSP olive/flax oil
    +
    1-3 ounces of water depending on the desired fluidity of the shake.

    Comes out to about 1400 calories.

    2800 with two shakes

    Assuming you eat breakfast, a mid-day meal, and something before you go to bed, that's 4500 cals easy.

    5 meals a day is not bad at all.

    prepare them before hand and bring them to work or whatever

    if you want really calorie dense, get half and half. vitamin D milk = whole milk = more calories.

    sure, being that you are bulking, add whatever the hell you want in there. I use peanut butter, graham crackers, bananas, granola bars, whatever is around that i think might taste good. If you want to keep it around 1400 cals each, use less of the oil and try some PB instead, that should help with the taste.

    why dont you want to be eating 5 meals a day? its the easiest way to eat enough food if you have trouble getting it all down in 3.

    Sure, if you want to. Of course it doesn't taste great, but you get accustomed to it.. Then again, I don't mind the taste of plain oats at all.

    The way I do it:

    Pour it into a glass 4 cup measuring cup thing (mine comes out to a little under 3 cups, IIRC) Take a good breath, and start chugging

    I run out of breath about 3/4 of the way through. Don't breath through your nose at all the entire time, breath through your mouth. That way you won't taste it.

    Chug the remaining 1/4, then rinse all your shit out. You can either chase it with some OJ, or be a man and savor the bitter, oily aftertaste :drool:
