So I have dealt with many many guys that are all about bulking and getting as big as possible. They will try a massgainer and they will tell me it doesn’t work. So once again it is a supplement. It adds to your diet. All massgainers work they are simple basic calories, loads of them. The problem is you are not following the rest of the rules that you need to. I remember bulking when I was eating so often I was throwing up half the time. I ate more sweet potatoes in a day then should ever be eaten. Yet there are guys much bigger then myself that eat more. So do not say it doesn’t work, just eat more! If you stop gaining, eat more than that! Here are the absolute basics.
Eat every 2-3 hours without fail. Keep pushing yourself no matter what. If you are on the road, use your massgainer shake, otherwise calorie dense meals. Increase all your portion sizes slightly and when you hit a plateau, increase them slightly more. Drink your calories if you need to, add oats to your shakes, drink smoothies, even milk. Use oils on your foods such as canola and olive oil, drizzled over your veggies or meat. Eat rich calorie veggies such as sweet potato and do not neglect your beans. Load up on nut butters like almond nut butter or my preference is macadamia nut butter. Use your sauces over your meals and spices to make them taste better so that you do not struggle to get through your meals as much. A little bit of sauce goes a long way. Eat carbohydrates with every single meal even before bed, wild rice, quinoa, potatoes. Do not forget to load carbohydrates around your workouts, including pre, intra and post. It really is a simple formula, eat, eat, eat! Do not bulk up using takeaways and processed foods you will only bulk in fat.
The formula is simple but it is not by any means easy. Many times you feel you can’t eat anymore or you just can’t fine time. The main thing is patience. Stick to your formula and be patient, the results will come!
