Go to the store and buy lots of Natural peanut butter, Oats, Bananas, and Some No fat or 1% fat milk. combo it toghther to your choosen! You could make it 1000+ calories if you wanted, Anyways those are my favorite food choices. Oh yeah buy some Olive Oil and put a tablespoon or 2 of that in there also its healthy fats.

NLarge isn't a great product. See the "Best of the Supplements Section" sticky in the supplements section. It has links to good threads of homemade weight gainer recipes.

No...Excess calories is.

Okay, but for a clean bulk only combinations of CARBS + PROTEIN or FAT + PROTEIN should be ingested. At least according to johnberardi.com, unless he is wrong..

Don't forget about lowfat cottage cheese and flaxseed oil, maybe some egg whites, splenda and flavor extracts for awesome no-cal taste.

Yes for a clean bulk. Hence the name "clean". It's really the calories though that determine if you're gonna gain or lose weight.

He's John Berardi, of course he's wrong.

Zachary what's wrong with John Berardi? Do you have suggestions of better online sources with good BB information besides this site here?


bignbuff whats the point of gaining weight if there is going to be alot of fat gain? I mean you can eat a jar of peanut butter a day, but that would not be a good weight gainer..

John Berardi's principles have been debated on many boards...mostly AL.

The point of gaining weight/bulking up is to gain muscle. The vast majority of people in this world cannot build muscle under natural circumstances unless you are consuming more calories than they burn per day. And guess what, consuming more calories than you burn per day equals fat gain.

bignbuff thx for the info, much appreciated. I'm a ectomorph and sick of being 135lb. Was going to buy a weight gainer, but decided I will be making my own. I want to use it post workout. Should I stick with Protein and hi GI carbs or add some fat to it and therefore increase calorie intake.

Yes. No need to use high GI carbs though. You can use oats as a more clean alternative.
