    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    My low effort, low cost mass gaining diet

    I'm just some dude but I look built and have a lot of energy and rarely crave anything so I thought I'd post my diet.

    I'm not optimizing or maximizing anything, except maybe ease of shopping and ease of preparation.

    The cornerstone of my diet is skim milk and cereal. I get whole grain cereals with nuts and raisins and stuff. I switch off cereals when I get tired of a brand. I like kroger brand meusli, great grains, oatmeal squares, raisin bran, whatever. All unsweetened and fortified with vitamins. I always put an entire scoop of whey protein powder in my cereal before pouring the milk for more protein and more nutirition. I am convinced putting the powder into food lessens the "gas effect."

    The other thing I eat a whole lot of is cottage cheese. I've read cottage cheese is the quickest digesting protein. I buy 2% because skim just isn't as good. I always put two spoonfuls or so of low sugar jelly (apricot usually) in the cottage cheese. This is enough to satisfy any sweet cravings I get. Post workout sometimes I'll put a scoop or two of whey power in cottage cheese with applesauce to get carbs, protein, and milkfat in me quick.

    I always keep raw almonds around too. I eat a small handfull everytime I walk by my kitchen, which is quite often as I live in a studio and am always in my kitchen. Fiber, good fats, protein, nutrients, and all that. Almonds are great for your poop.

    About once a week I'll cook a pound of ground turkey breast with a can of veggies. It doesn't get much easier than tossing the meat in a pan, pouring a can of veggies in for salt/flavor, spinning the pepper mill for a minute, and stirring until the meat is cooked.

    Lunch is usually some frozen meal or a subway sandwhich always with 2% milk. I really like the Amy's and ethnic gourmet indian meals but they are pricey.

    I snack on a box of milk and either sun chips or a rice crispies treat in the afternoon.

    I supplement with fish oil, centrum, and creatine. And arginine pills before dates. I drink maybe 3-4 beers a week and no caffeine.

    I've been doing this for maybe 3 months and have grown muscle and feel good.

    Let me know if anybody likes/dislikes or has suggestions.

    Ha, no.

    I hear girls like big muscles, so I optimize.

    I bought the arginine before researching what it does and I think thats all its good for. I won't be buying another bottle.

    Cottage cheese is high in casein, a slow digested protein...

    Whey is the fastest digesting protein it's completely separated from the slow digesting protein casein and it better stimulates muscle protein synthesis try whey instead.

    ricotta's just not as tasty though.

    I suggest you read the stickies, do some research and look into this yourself. This has all been covered before in this forum, so you should be able to find further info.

    Oh, and bend over as TeM is probably going to do very nasty things...
