About eating more for the hard gainer types

I was reading the other day, maybe in the new muscle and fitness or somewhere, that one thing that is really necessary for the traditional hard gainers (the ones that could eat a whole pizzza and still not gain any weight). They said to start with more at breakfast and this struck me because of my schedule (and laziness) I have been only having a protein shake for breakfast. I started eating more for breakfast about a week ago and have noticed a difference already. Much easier to get more carbs in each day that way.

Oatmeal is my friend!

Oatmeal with a scoop of protien, a heaping tablespoon of Glutamine, and a couple tablespoons of honey is your best-friend.

Oatmeal, grits, malt-o-meal...that is where it is at.

Throw skim milk into your protein shake instead of water...its all about them calories.

That is the only way I can do the shakes now. They taste so much better with milk instead of water! I buy 2 gallons of skim milk at a time now because I go through it so fast!

I drink about a gallon of milk each day, I was drinking whole milk though and I've gone down to 2%, I can't stand skim, it tastes like powdered milk or something to me (too watered down)

Using milk to mix with your shakes is great, it tastes better but drinking a lot will contribute to excessive soreness. All that lactic acid building up in your muscles can make a recovery extra painfull.
