    I'm trying to gain weight. Should I be eating as much and drinking protein shakes and such on days that I'm not lifting weights as on days that I am?

    You need a steady diet if you are trying to gain weight. Eat smart, lean, and often. If you are a hardgainer, this is especially true. Make an effort to eat even more on the days you lift since you will be burning more calories.

    What if you aren't trying to gain weight, should someone still take the protein shakes on there 'off' days?

    I'm definitely a "hard gainer". I've been stuck at around 170 forever. I'd love to get up around 180.

    Yes, the amount of protein should be the same whether you are trying to gain weight or not. If you are trying to gain weight then you should add more calories to your diet and lift accordingly.

    My secret weapon:

    Milk.

    Protein is the tool of the Devil. Protein is snake oil. Protein is false. You can get it much cheaper if you buy it at a flea market or from an online vendor you've never once in your life heard of. Protein is the absolute worst garbage known to man and is WAY overpriced.

    Source? Study?

    Absolutely incorrect.

    LOL I hope all of you who know me understood that this is simply an impression of the kind of shit that is simply NOT WELCOME here.

  13. And yea I know you are kidding. But seriously...milk has done wonders for me. Way, way, way underestimated for bulking. But of course if there were 5 page ads in "Muscle and Fitness" with "The New Breakthrough Supplement....Milk!!! Drink it and get huge," there would be all kinds of shmucks paying 17 dollars a gallon for it and saying how great it is.

    Wait a minute, it's defeating the purpose though, because you're eliminating a higher concentration of protein than you're intaking, I'm sure.

    Alright this conversation has officially gone into un-charted waters.

    Nah, he's in a forest with spooky lighting. If you've ever seen Aqua Teen Hunger Force, the "Universal Remonster" episode, they were supposed to be watching scary movies. I fucking HATE puppets, and every TV show they have on that cartoon (that the characters are supposed to be watching) is all puppets, so their scary movie featured this thing chasing around other puppets, laughing maniacally, and jabbing that knife into them. I thought to myself "they're trying to mimick scary movies and their mimick is actually freakier than most of the movies out nowadays."
