i put in 4000+ easy with a couple of homemade gainer shakes. here is the brief version. im just gonna list em inthe order i eat them throughout the day. all shakes are made with 1% or skim milk.

protein shake
oatmeal
banana and apple
protein bar
veggies and chicken breast
gainer shake
tuna salad or turkey sandwhich
protein bar
workout
shake
steak or chicken, veggies, baked potato
gainer shake

its like 4200 cals when its all said and done, its pretty hard to eat that if you arnt use to it. just bump up 500 calories a day for 1 week, and keep bumping 500 each week till you get where you need your calories to be.

I hope you are joking. I take in roughly 3100-3200 calories a day, and I am neither cutting nor bulking. Right now, I am too busy to actually starting either, so for the next 4 weeks and what has been already 6 weeks, I've kept it at that. i fluctuate between 206-207lbs. Why would you think that 3000+ would get you fat?!? 2000 calories would kill me

I just started bulking a week ago, my diet isn't down to a key yet but it works for me.

Breaky (Biggest Meal)

Bowl of Blueberry Granola
2 Eggs
Fruit & Yogurt Bar
Milk
Juice

Lunch: Tuna Fish On Flax Wheat With Cheese
2 Scoop Whey in Milk
Almonds/Peanuts
Fruit
Egg White
Fish Oils
Calcium Pill
Multi Vit

Pre Dinner:

Cheese on Wheat Beagle
Juice

Dinner:
Beef or Chicken Rice o Roni with 350 G can of chicken breast added
huge meal like 700 cals with 50 cabs and 35 protien (Mouth Watering) OR fish and veggies and sweet pot
Milk

Late night snack: Peanut Butter Banana Sandwich
Yogurt Fruit Bar
Milk

Tons and tons of water too

I'm not a big eater so eating this everyday is quite painful. works out to around 3500+ cals very clean too dont get much extra unwanted baggage.

How am i killing myself? please explain, by eating too much and gaining too much weight? I haven't gained a pound in 6 weeks, that's b/c I've wanted to maintain my weight. Where am i actually doing harm to my body?

Don't listen to Realbigguy123. Look at his previous posts on this site and you'll see why.

2000 isn't too high, 3500 4000 yes, but that is if your aren't working out. And since this is bodybuiling.com I would assume most people here are pumping iron . If your a couch potato and consume 3000/4000 cals a day then your killing your bod.

I am not picking on anyone's spelling... Lord knows I make my fair share of typos. This one just made me crack up. I've never had beagle, but I would imagine that it is high in protein.

P.S. Beagles are a good source of protein and glutamine.

I'm taking in about just over 3000 cals per day this is my usual meals:
(pre-workout) Cytogainer and fruit, hydroxycut hardcore for energy boost
(post-workout) 8 egg whites 1 whole egg, oats and phosphagen HP
Tuna sandwich on stone ground bread, scoop of peanut butter
Chicken breast/salmon/steak mixed vegetables, brown rice
Cytogainer, fruit
chicken breast/salmon/steak mixed vegetables, whole wheat pasta
(before bed) cottage cheese and a scoop of peanut butter

i'm drinking about a gallon to gallon and half of water per day, and i also snack on almonds throughout the day to curb hunger before meals. It's been working great for me!

its a medical fact. my aunt is a nutritionist and she says 2000 is almost to high. your killing urself man. if u dont respect urself repect ur body at least

it's not a medical fact :/ what is though, is that your calorie requirements are based on your genetics, bodyweight, and activity level. you think a 115lb girl and a 250lb bodybuilder need the same amount of calories?

1/2 cup steel cup oats ground up in a coffee grinder + 1 1/2 scoops of whey all thrown into a blender with 14oz of water = 460 calories 48grams of protein, 52grams of carbs, 7grams of fat. Pretty much a perfect shake and it only takes about 10 seconds to slam it down.

If you're doing 5-6 meals this is a perfect meal for you. Do that twice a day and there's 1000 calories for you. The last 4 meals are easy. Eggs, whole wheat bread, chicken breast, tuna, milk, etc.
