Anyone got suggestions for some good calorie dense, healthy meals?
protein and good carbs
eat about 6 meals a day and try to gain about 1-3 pounds a week
counting calories helps
and get a decent protein powder (don't go to gnc and buy one of those ridiculous "SUPER DUPER MASS 9000 XXX" tubs, biggest waste of money ever... seriously look on the label, yeah it says like "80 grams of protein per serving" but the only difference between that and regular whey protein is they tell you to use 3 scoops instead of 1, biggest rip off ever)
lift weights with more sets and less reps while trying to lift more weight, lift to failure (do each exercise with like 8 sets, and no more than 6 reps each)
