Help me gain weight bros. 5'9 140lbs I'm a hard gainer, the most I weighed was 160 when I was working out and eating like crap. I have acne at the age of 27. I cut out out gluten and lost 20lbs within 3 months, it seemed to help my acne too.

I've been taking a mass gainer that seems to help, but I have a feeling all the sugar in it is not good for me. I'm using this since it has no sweeteners Ultimate Nutrition Muscle Juice 2544 at Bodybuilding.com: Lowest Prices for Muscle Juice 2544 but look at all that sugar.

How do I gain weight without eating like crap?

Yeah mass gainer is lots of sugar. Buy regular protein. 2 scoops in the morning on ur way to work, 2 scoops at night after the gym. I wouldnt recommend it as a main source of calories for more than a month at a time.

In the morning try a chicken breast w/ rice or boiled potato, maybe some eggs as a filler.

between then and noon eat a pbj sammich

then lunch. same as breakfast but more of it... same with dinner... rice, broccoli or whatever u like, tofu mixed in. etc.

when u get home you can eat 2-3 spoon fulls of pb out of the jar.

Jumping jacks suck, I don't want to put repetitive lateral stress on my knees like that.

Even though he has terrible gym etiquette and bench presses in the squat rack like a bro, triple88a is probably the most qualified guy to listen to in this thread (a fitness thread on a Miata board entitled "Can you pinch my awful fat folds?") for the topic of putting on muscle weight because he has actually done it.

The short answer is, "eat a lot and lift a lot." I've personally given up on the idea of putting on a lot of muscle mass because I'm not committed enough to put the weight on and eat like that forever in order to maintain the size.

Carb cycling is king. Sweet merciful Brodin has blessed me with gainz.

Was 200.00lbs this morning before my morning duece. Total loss of 135lbs. I'll be 199/198 tomorrow and will most likely fall to the ground and cry.

Best set of deadlifts last week: 225x12, 275x12, 315x6, 385x3, 405x1. I'll lift heavy again in 3 days, take a week off and then try a 450lb pull.
My total is easily over 1000lbs now......with a 260lb bench, lol.

Thanks for the input, I'm dropping the mass gainer, too much sugar. Going to focus on staying healthy. I'm going to try this whey protein from new zealand No Soy Lecithin Whey protein Isolate it's kind of pricey compared to others but I just don't want to be putting sweeteners and other crap into my body.

I've been limiting gluten for a while now, so I'm going to remove starches and introduce more fats and protein. For those that have been doing keto for a while, any negative effects?

-Hit macros correctly and put on muscle while burning fat
-LOL @ hamplanets who can't lose weight while you bacon your way to smaller clothes

I have no idea what is. I've had two days of drinking this year. Both were at the Lake House meet and I was drunk as ****. That is the only time I've had alcohol this year. Honestly, I've nearly lost all desire to start drinking again.

Looks pretty damn good, it does have sucralose in the ingredients though Avoiding alcohol is going to be rough, I like my craft beers so I don't think I can eliminate it completely.

You mentioned carb cycling. How often do you do it and for how long?

Is sucralose worse for your body than alcohol If things like that are bothering you then I suggest you look into everything you eat.

I stopped doing keto because, basically, I wasn't losing any more weight. I got to the point where I was lean enough to keep me at a stall (because I lift and eat like a barbarian).

I carb cycle similar to IF Lean Gain. Basically it's an intermittent fast that works as a macro "flip" for fat/carbs. On lift days I eat 2-3 times a day and my macros should look around 5% fat, 40% carbs, 55% protein. The majority of my carbs come immediately after lifting. First meal and last meal should be in an 8 hour window. I usually stop eating at 5. Then a scoop of whey before bed.

Off/rest days are basically a keto plan. Macros are flipped and look around 45% fat, 5-10% carbs, 50-ish% protein. I do some cardio on off days, too.

Most people who do keto and are sedentary DO NOT have carb-up/recomp days. However, I highly suggest that you lift weights and/or do some form of exercise. Living with keto becomes much easier when you can up your caloric intake and have carb-up days. I used to cycle 10-ish days.

Edit: WTF! You're trying to gain weight?! No keto for you, my friend. Get your *** aboard the IF express http://www.leangains.com/

I like this whey powder. It's concentrate, not isolate, but there's hardly any extra crap added, it's from very clean dairy, and it has a nice mild vanilla flavor, not that terrible, chemical, oversweet grossness.

If anyone encounters some non-dairy protein powders that are not horrible, please share. I have a real mild dairy allergy of some sort, so even whey isolate bothers me. It's a reaction in the throat and glands (one of my siblings is full anaphylactic).

The best I've found I've found, in terms of mixing and flavor, was this egg protein mix:

Amazon.com: Healthy 'n Fit 100% Egg Protein, Vanilla Ice Cream, 2-pound Bottle: Health & Personal Care Amazon.com: Healthy 'n Fit 100% Egg Protein, Vanilla Ice Cream, 2-pound Bottle: Health & Personal Care

I've also tried some cheap pea protein. Horrible.

Amazon.com: Now Foods Pea Protein, 2 Pound: Health & Personal Care Amazon.com: Now Foods Pea Protein, 2 Pound: Health & Personal Care

Currently, I'm using a beef protein. It's not awful, but I could only get the fruit punch version in the smaller container. Not as ideal for mixing into shakes as is my preference.

Thanks for the tips viper. I'm not sure if IF would help me. I still want to try the keto diet for health reasons and to clear up my skin. Even though it's not bad at all since I stopped eating gluten. Being completely acne free would be nice, I'm hoping to maintain weight or gain. I got the myfitnesspal app on my phone to keep track of my calories and protein/fat/carb ratio. So far so good, my **** smells awful so I'm guessing I'm in ketosis. I'll see how my body reacts after a month.

For people looking into going ketogenic, I found some good info here http://www.reddit.com/r/ketogains/wiki/index

Have you guys experienced ketobreath? I was reading that bad breath is one of the side effects.

Well I entered ketosis over a week ago. Been supplementing magnesium (capsules), potassium(morton salt substitute) and sodium. My acne is pretty much gone as of yesterday. I did lose a bit of fat around the waist area. Strength at the gym seems about the same, maybe a little less than before. I'll try to stick with it for a couple weeks more and see how my weight and strength is. If I'm dropping too much weight or strength I'll introduce more starches and keep the fat and protein high while still avoiding gluten.

I think the problem for me with keto to maintain weight, is just not being able to get enough calories in. With work, school and gym, I just don't prepare enough food. Totally my fault.
