Re-Defining the Freshman 15

My school’s meal plan only allows us to eat 3 times a day during the week, 2 times a day on the weekend, and only at certain times. I’m broke so I cant afford to buy 2 more meals every day.

Ive been lifting hard using only compound movements and have been drinking a weight gainer before I go to sleep to try to pick up some weight but it doesnt appear to be doing much, and I am running out. Is there any way I can turn this into a good diet to pick up some weight for cheap?

Add milk to your diet. Great for gaining weight on a budget. Drink with meals, between meals, before bed. Cheap! Effective! You can buy it everywhere!

dude, do what i used to do in the cafeteria, take 2 empty plastic containers, and fill one up with whatever protein is in there as well as the other for whatever carbs you want.

Also take in a big water bottle and fill that shit up with whole milk.

be as lucrative as possible and leave with your food for the rest of the day.

I’m assuming your cafeteria is all you can eat. if not your school sucks dick and you should transfer.

best of luck!!

Well said. When I was at ASU, I easily ate between 4000-6000 calories a day on 3 all-I-could-eat meals.

I agree with what others have said.

Start buying milk. A gallon a day isn’t very expensive.

I wish my Uni had all you can eat meals… it doesnt :frowning:

+1 all rest have said. Only time I’ve ever grown “easily” was down to shitloads of milk, shame it made me have the shits constantly eh.
