Been doing this successfully with 1% milk for about 3 weeks, with an otherwise extremely clean diet. I take in about 3500 cals a day, and I have put on weight and look leaner in the mirror as well.

Just curious if anyone else has tried this, what their results were, etc, as I plan on continuing this through an 8-10 wk cycle of Bold and the PCT to follow.

Macros for the gallon are:
40g fat (16 saturated)
196 g carbs (lactose)
128 g protein

Haven't had a problem with constipation so far. How long did you bulk for, what were your gains like?

I can think of a lot more creative, tasty ways to get 16-1700 calories
But if you like milk, go ahead (watch the farts)

i first heard of rippetoe having his athletes train with a gallon of whole milk a day with amazing results. from a bodybuilding standpoint, i though the lower fat option would be better, so i went with 1%. it doesnt taste like anything, goes down like water. obviously there are better sources of carbs than the lactose in milk, but there are far worse options too. as an ecto, i dont have to worry quite as much.

no one here has heard of GOMAD?

yeah its a pretty old school way of really bulking up - Personally i'd prefer to just eat a load of good food but its a great way to gain mass

Pretty much. Its an easy way to get down another 1600 calories, high in protein, carbs, and depending on what kind you buy, high in fat.


Alyion, I hadn't heard of "GOMAD" but it seems to be exactly what I'm doing, and working.

Ive been doing it for about a month, maybe a little less. Started with skim, went to 1%, then 2% and now am drinking a gallon of whole milk. When I started I would constantly be farting, started taking lactase and it slowly subsided. Now that my body is used to that much milk I have no problem with it. I love the looks you get when your at the store and you load up 7 gallons of whole milk in your cart. Ive had some lady ask me if I was seeing Kate Goesslin (sp?) because of all the milk.

Im gaining weight, calipers say Im staying at a constant bf%, veins are just as visible as they were before so I dont think Im gaining much fat.
My diet was low in fat before so I figured this was an easy way to get that fat in. And its tasty, my shakes have never tasted so good.

I pay $1.88 for a gallon of milk at one of those price clubs, which is less than if I bought weight gainer supplements anyway.

milk is like 3 bucks a gallon and that would be half your food for the day
its prolly the cheapest way to get 2k cals

any one do GOMAD with out getting too fat ?

This dude drank a gallon a day and bulked up pretty damn well

I Wouldn't worry too much about fat though in the end of the day, its not as if it's permanent or anything, although it's obviously better suited for a total beginner on a mass compound routine like SS

Borden makes a 2% high-protein plus milk. If I remember correctly it is 10 grams protein/cup.
