This is getting frustrating. I keep bumping the calories up 500 at a time and I still haven't gained a pound. My body weight is at the exact same spot. I stay the same weight if I eat 3000 or 4000 calories. ARGH

Hopefully this will help. Sure helped me.

If anyone is having a hard time eating oats or getting enough calories. Stop and listen to this post. Grinding steel cut oats up in a coffee grinder and throwing them in a shake is by far the easiest way to slam them down not to mention you can make some extremely cheap weight gainer shakes that are very good for you.

Step 1:
Buy a coffee grinder. They are cheap and you can buy them almost anywhere. I bought one at Target but anyplace like Walmart will have them. Here's an example:


Step 2:
Go to this website and use the store locator to find a retailer close to you to purchase this product. This stuff is gold. 560 calories per cup and the store by my house sells it for .99 cents a pound!


Look at the nutritional value on this stuff:

Step 3:
Grind oats up with coffee grinder and throw them in your favorite shake. If they oats are took thick in your shake just add more milk/water.

EVERY day I have serveral of the following shakes.

16oz ice cold skim milk
1/2 ground steel cut oats
1 scoop of ON whey.

Obviously you can experiment with whatever you want to throw in there. Any fruits, peanut butter, etc etc. work perfectly.

Talk about a cheap, high quality shake that is easy to make and takes under a minute to drink.
