    Calories, maybe. But protein equivalent only comes out to be about 12 eggs, which isn't hard at all. And the eggs' protein is much better. Higher biological value, which means you use more of it and less goes to waste.

    4 liters (slightly over 1 gallon) of milk is 2000 calories. You'd be an idiot to get that many calories from milk alone. But from those 2000 calories, you only get a little over 120 grams of protein that is going to be very, very difficult to digest. A dozen eggs will give you the equivalent amount of protein, in a much easier to digest form, a better quality, half as many calories, and half as much $$$

    Except the whole point of the GOMAD diet is weight gain for people who have a lot of difficulty eating enough calories. There are better sources of protein if thats all you want.

    In terms of using eggs as a protein supplement i agree with you, one of my meals at work is omega 3 scrambled eggs with chives, ham and no bread. Very cheap and good source of protein.

    Yes, that's what it is. But the person who asked the question already said the GOMAD is not for him, so now I'm suggesting eggs as a protein source that I recommend. Wasn't trying to start a fight with you bro.

    I have to agree with this. There is no need to have one source of protein to such an excess when you can have multiple sources in moderation.
    Milk, Eggs, Chicken, Cheese, Fish, Nuts, Protein shakes.

    After bodybuilding for about 6 years and going through the bulking and cutting phases countless times, eating whole chickens, 10 eggs a day etc..I pretty much have muscle gain down to a fine art, however I came to realise that a lot of muscle I was carrying was not functional, if anything it was a hindrance, my core strength was extremely poor and my cardio and flexibility was terrible too.

    When I started Muay Thai and MMA I totally changed my outlook on health and fitness, Size and strength are no longer a priority and now I focus mainly on Explosive power, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, core strength, Muscular endurance and speed.

    If you really can't gain weight, try the "jar of peanut butter a day" plan

    In my opinion, carbohydrates actually make a bigger difference in weight gain than protein does. Now, of course, you have to have a lot of protein. But there's only so much protein you can eat that will matter. As long as you have sufficient protein, increasing your carbohydrate content will be what makes the difference in weight gain.

    Do you follow the "twice your body weight in protein" idea?

    Well, that varies tremendously on which measurements you're using for your body weight and your protein intake. If you're measuring your weight in kilograms instead of pounds, it's going to be a very different result. I've never seen protein measured in anything but grams... but if for some reason you're measuring your protein in ounces or kilograms or something, that would obviously skew the results tremendously.

    My personal philosophy is as follows (and I cannot stress enough that this particular advice is simply my own method. It's the result of seeing all the different protein recommendations out there, consulting with a nephrologist on whether a high-protein intake is inherently dangerous for the kidneys [it's not], and finding a personal preference.):

    Protein intake (in grams) = desired bodyweight (in pounds). For example, currently my bodyweight fluctuates between 215 and 220 lbs, and I desire to increase that to 230-240 lbs. So my current protein intake is actually around 240-250 grams of protein. If you measure your bodyweight in kilograms, then you're not far off. Since 1kg = 2.2 lbs, then doubling your bodyweight in KG and converting to grams will give you pretty close to your preferred protein intake.
