    Ok so who's done it? success?

    Just started yesterday. was able to down half a gallon and today 3/4. hoping not to explode tomorrow when i hit a full gal icon_lol.gif

    ~2400 calories on top of my daily food intake (~2000)

    I plan on doing it for 2 months max to jump start my bulk. After that switch to a clean bulk, then cut for summer

    8/20/12 = 165lbs
    goal = 200
    ____________________________________________
    UPDATE: week 1. 8/27/12= 170

    I've gained right about 5 pounds in 7 days. I stuck to it Mon thru thurs then substituted cytogainer Fri and Sat due to me working weekends and not having the time to drink down so much milk. Sunday I took a break

    My bathroom habits changed for the bad. I'm going to need a lot more fiber to keep this up lol!

    On a positive note my appetite is increasing

    What's wrong with the way you are now? Maybe a little more lat, but dont ruin your great proportions and go all muscle-mag. That would be a shame.

    But if you're gonna do this....

    at 6'1 and 165 I just look slim. Id like to fill out my clothes in general. goal of 200lbs is for my bulk. in which id probably cut down to 180. at least i think thats how a bulk/cut goes icon_confused.gif

    I also heavily neglected my lower body, so this coupled with a good lower body routine should provide the gains I need.

    Thank you for that rec! I was looking for a supp to battle the war that is about to go on in my stomach lol..

    Are you buying the milk with BGH to get bigger? ;)


    It is important to remember that bigger does not mean healthier.

    My friend and I tried it for a week, gained 5 lbs but I cut down to half a gallon because I felt bloated and had to go to the toilet all the time. I'm gonna try taking Lacto to see if that improves anything. I've always hated milk and drinking a gallon a day was just not fun.

    I hate to be a bugger here.. but since several people have mentioned owning a cow... icon_smile.gif that's my specialty.

    The average Holstein heifer that has already had her first calf and is lactating can produce up to 8-9 gallons of milk a day. <-- WOOHOO!

    BUT, the taste is NOTHING like what you have tasted before in milk. It is warm, and sometimes can be gritty, depending on the mother's diet. On the brightside, it is very healthy and contains a lot of fat and lactose that pasteurized milk kill.. kill as in the natural flora that are found in stright-from-the-cow milk.

    BUT AGAIN on the downside, there are always risks.. I.E. it is like eating rare meat or sunny-side up eggs. the risk of getting a bug or a bacteria that will make you very sick.

    ----------------------------------------------
    On the subject at hand, I wouldn't recommend bulkjing up by milk. proper exercise and nutrition can bulk you up better. just drinking milk will ultimately get you sick... especially if you are drinking the milk that is full of fat.

    MOO

    Milk is cheaper there. They don't have supply management.

    It's the amount I was talking about, not the price.
    200lb, that gives a BMI of 26.4
    That's a bit high.

    There are also dairies that offer organic raw milk.

    http://organicpastures.com/

    I have a friend that ....goes to some farm and I don't know if it is called renting a cow or what but she goes and milks the cow herself. She said the kids love it.

    I hope that your dairy is doing ok. I hear that the small ones are closing all over the place because of feed costs being too high. I have also heard that Wells Fargo is pulling loans from dairy farms even if they have not been late because they don't see how they can make it with the high cost of feed. It looks like the only ones that are going to be left are the huge dairies and maybe a couple specialty ones....like the raw ones or possibly the ones that create their own products (like cheese) with them.

    For those meat lovers out there, they should see a temporary drop in meat prices soon because there will be a glut of it with ranchers killing off stock early so that they don't have to feed them and dairy farmers turning their cows into beef. The government bought a bunch of it though to try and stop it from dropping too much.

    After that runs out....we may see prices really get high in both meat and dairy. A lot of it depends on if this drought continues.

    (Personally, I don't drink cows milk or eat any meat)

    ive always drank milk from childhood to adulthood and a lot of it. usually a big glass for breakfast/lunch/dinner. what can i say i love milk icon_lol.gif

    so maybe im the lucky few who can handle that much lactose? i guess ill find out soon enough but so far no stomach issues to report (day 3). if anything milk has always settled my stomach..

    I understand theres some minor health concerns (saturated fat, sugar) but like I said, just a temporary boost to start off, then switch over to a cleaner bulk

    I see it as one, good motivation to see changes in the mirror quickly..
    and two, increase my appetite w/ the surplus of calories

    He's working out and eating to gain muscle. BMI is irrelevant. (It assumes that weight gain is always fat.) When I was powerlifting and got my weight up to about 200 lbs, my doctor looked at my numbers (not at me!) and warned me that I was getting obese. This was a woman with a fanny the size of two beach balls. Open you're eyes, woman, that's muscle not fat! I never went back to see her.

    I would not be able to handle this, but I was curious about how it compared with an off-the-shelf weight gainer. Here are some quick numbers:

    1 gallon of whole milk (3.5% milkfat) = ~2464 kcal
    2 servings of Optimum Serious Mass = ~2497 kcal

    Macronutrient breakdown (Protein/Carbs/Fat):
    Milk = 20/47/33%
    Serious Mass breakdown = 16/81/3%

    Protein:
    Milk = 124g
    Gainer = 100g

    Carbs:
    Milk = 204g (all sugars)
    Gainer = 504g (40g sugars)

    Fats:
    Milk = 128g (72g saturated)
    Gainer = 9g (3g saturated)

    So the really big difference between using this method is with milk you're getting the majority of your calories (close to 50%) from fat whereas with the gainer, you're getting the majority from carbs (around 81%). I could see this working for someone who is otherwise maintaining a fairly lowfat diet and getting the rest of their carbs from non-sugary sources (fibrous vegetables?), or for someone who gains fat easily on high-carb diets.

    I also worry a lot about hormones, pesticide-fed and GMO feed and pasteurization's effect on milkfat. That alone would keep me from trying it (raw milk is its own can of worms).

    Oh that's easy. A gallon is 4 quarts. A quart is 2 pints. A pint is 4 gills. And a gill is 5 fluid ounces. Unless it's a dry pint. A dry pint is 1.16 of a liquid pint. But milk would be liquid, so nevermind.

    You look bigger than 165 in your pic. I am 6'4 and weight 180 and don't look near as big as you. I would think most guys on here would think your body is pretty nice as is but I understand wanting to grow.

    As others have said I wouldn't recommend this way of bulking for very long. That much added sugar per day in addition to other sugar plus the fat is not going to be hitting the midsection pretty hard. Either way good luck on your bulking.
