05-09-2001, 08:14 PM
I'm new to this forum and i've been doing a little reading on some of you people's forums and i have to say that you all have some good ideas for body mass and getting your intakes of protein. My problem is that i have pretty much hit like 3-4% body fat
i've used a calliper so i know.
What I've found that has made me get bigger is that i have had to change my diet around dramatically.
I have a very High metabolism so i have had to slow it down. So I stopped Smoking, I eat Very Late at night
I usually Eat 2 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and a glass of mass gainer with whole milk and some berries. but i have also found that when i added FLAX SEED Oil into the shake it gave me some more FAT to use for muscle and has really helped me getting some serious MASS.
I Have gained about 30 lbs in muscle in
2 1/2 -3 mnths
My Proteins are thru the roof as well I eat lots of Tuna and Chicken, unfortunately I don't like EGGS so i'm kinda S.O.L.
Well I hope My regiment works for someone

He is an ectomorph or a mesomorph DYork.. If his metabolism is that fast then he can easily put on that much weight and it be almost all muscle. If his metabolism is that efficient then he can be natural and gain that much easily! If he is eating enough.
Alot of people blame size on " Juicing " but the fact of the matter is that it is nutrition and hardcore training that are the most important factors in bodybuilding. Whether you are juicing or not. 30 pounds in 2 1/2 months is more than doeable!
Welcome aboard man!

I can personally attest to gaining that much weight in 2-2 1/2 months - I quit smoking in mid-Jan, started eating 6 small meals a day and by late March I was 185 (from 155). While some of it is certainly fat (especially around the midsection), my strength is up quite a bit since Jan and continues to increase pretty steadily - thanks in no small part to the great info that I've found on this site! smilies/images/icons/smile.gif Only supps are whey, glutamine & creatine...

Great example John! Everyone likes to blame gains on the juice when the main factors in bodybuilding are nutrition and hardcore training!

Well hello again:
Lets see umm Dyork you think that i'm juicin and your wrong cuz I don't like to Anabolic Frolic around a Gym! But i Am Increasing My intake of Proteins More and More each day
By eating more Tuna, And lean meats
But Also I have chosen to try to eat some eggs even though I can Spite with them.
One big problem i'm still having is gaining Fat For muscle which Dyork put on his forum is that most of the foods i'm eating are very High Fat levels but if he knew what he was talking about he would know that you need Fat to build muscle after all you turn Fat into muscle so i'm still eating HI-Fat levelled foods very late before I go to bed
along with a weight gainer and then going to bed plus i'll have a weight gainer shake before i go to work
It seems to be helping more and more i can see some serious difference
but i still wanna slow my metabolism down more so i can build consistantly.
Well i'll check back in a little while

as a matter of fact chief, i do know what i'm talkin about. the 85% remark was a gross exaggeration, but it was to illustrate a point. and to the fat intake, fat is responsible for certain VERY important natural anabolic hormones. but, you CANNOT turn fat to muscle, it is not physically possible- no matter what - to turn one tissue into another, end of story. but, if you wanna gain fat free mass, as soon as possible after training, consume a meal [preferably a shake] in a 4:1 [120/30g] carb to protein ratio, than about an 1 1/2hr later consume a high pro, mod carb, mod fat [ 50g/50g/15g]meal or shake. at in 2/12-3 hr intervals, and EAT BIG. keep protein high and dont really worry about fats and such, and dont sweat junk every now and again, but center your nutrition around leanand high cal proteins, starchy carbs, fruits, veggies,and whole grains, and you will gain
