    I'd like to start the Muscle-Gaining Program next month and I realize one of the only ways to create more muscle is by increasing your calories. Eat More! Get Bigger! I understand the premise that you should fit 5 - 6 calorie-enriched meals spaced 2 to 3 hours throughout your day, but at times it seems impractical or impossible to do. Any suggestions on how to easily fit power-eating into an often busy and hectic schedule?

    Plan ahead!
    Whole grain rice goes a long way. Get a rice cooker, then you can make it at night or in the morning quick and easy while doing something else. Get lots of tupperware.
    In the morning, oatmeal is quick and easy and calorie dense.
    Also try meal replacement bars with low sugar. Or bake yams or potatoes at night. Use fish oil capsules. The toughest part is getting variety.

    Yeah, careful planning. There was a time when I would do stuff like make two protein shakes the night before and have them in the fridge for the next day so I could grab them and go. There are tons of things you can pre-make and refrigerate: meat, veggie purees, bean mashes, rice, etc. Just do a whole lot of cooking on Sunday and reap the time-saving benefits throughout the week.

    Protein Drink and a Greens Drink in between breakfast lunch and dinner. That's the easiest way to go. Then if you find yourself still hungry eat a hand full of almonds from time to time.

    Pasta! It's perfect for your needs. Couldn't be easier with prepared sauce. You might try the new microwavable Premium Pasta Sauce in a pouch from Bertolli. It uses quality ingredients and heats up in only 90 seconds. Info here:
