Any Weight Gaining Recipies?

I’m on a weight gaining diet and I was wondering if anyone has any recipies towards high calorie meals? also i’m trying to stay as healthy as possible (i know it’s hard).
anything would be great.

Thanks

shakes are good
cup of milk
2 bananas
2 scoops of protein
2 tbsp of pb
tasty :slight_smile:

1 c calorie countdown chocolate milk
1/2 c plain yogurt
2 TBSP Natural PB
1/3 c Pecans
1 scoop Metabolic Drive
5 ice cubes

650 calories IIRC

oh wait, according to some, it’s ok to shovel shit down your throat to meet caloric requirements, don’t do the above

Fill a blender, yes fill, with whole milk, peanut butter, protein powder. Enjoy.

Where do you guys get Calorie Countdown milk? I can’t find it anywhere - Safeway, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods…

i get it at giant.

go to the service desk at safeway and request it

I like adding oats and whey until I get to the calorie/macro level I’m looking for. Multiple cups of oats mixed with Grow! Whey and cinnamon is pretty darn satisfying.

Adding more PB is also an easy/tasty/satisfying way to add up calories in any given meal.

Or just simply add more meals throughout the day and make the portion sizes for each one larger than normal.

2 cups whole milk
2-3 scoops protein of your choice
4 ounces whipping cream
1 1/2 tbs of olive oil

1.5 cups of milk
1 cup of oatmeal
1 banana
2 tbsp of honey
2 tbsp peanut butter
4 tbsp olive oil
2 scoops of whey

My fave right there

Damn, thats about a 1450 calorie shake…nice.

I got a lot of body to fill out, I need that :stuck_out_tongue:

I think it’s closer to 1000 though. I usually don’t use the honey, and only do 2 tbsp of olive oil.

-Rattler

what’s the olive oil for?

i have about 5lbs left of pro-complex gainer left over, so i’m going to use that up. i also usually add a couple tablespoons of smart balance peanut butter to the shake. i was wondering if anyone has a good weight gain meal plan that’s AS cheap as it gets…just something i can base my daily diet off of.

I notice most shakes revolve around 2 cups of milk and 2 scoops of protein powder.

I do 3 cups whole milk and 3 scoops of protein powder.

Expand your horizons.

Just get a few dozen cans of chili and chug it.

1 Can of Pilchards in tomato sauce
4 Ice cubes
Handfull of walnuts
2 tbspns Carlson’s fish oil

60 grams of protein
Fats-don’t know
Carbs-no clue
Tomato Sauce-a little too much

Just be make sure the chili wasn’t grown deep in the jungle primeval by the inmates of a Guatemalan insane asylum.

thnaks guys you have a lot of good advice.

1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup low fat yogurt
1 banana
1 scoop of whey
2 tbsp Natural PB
Some frozen fruit for flavor

If you want to eat instead of drink.

2 cups yogurt with active culture
1 cup oats
1 cup fruit
1 scoop protein powder (flavor = your choice)

Its a good breakfast, mid morning snack, pre or post workout food… want more calories? double amounts !
