mmmm

So last night I had a giant piece of banana nut cake, with about a half of a gallon of milk filled with chocolate weight gainer.

I fully expect to break 3 million pounds keeping this up.

This is for any of you "hard gainers" out there

No such thing as a hard gainer.

Re: mmmm

Ever read that 70s big thing about "hard gainers"? I think about it anytime I want to whine about eating more. I would sit in the dining halls last year and consume a 2,000 calorie meal. This article prevented me from feeling too cool for school:

NOT WFS
http://www.70sbig.com/blog/2009/10/i...t-eat-the-man/ NOT WFS, f bombs.

OK I just did some math by using the McDonald's website, Pizza Hut website, and the two liter bottle of olive oil I have here.

Egg mcmuffin 300
Sas bsc w egg 510
Bac egg cheese mcgriddles 420
Saus egg cheese mcgrid 560
Mayonnaise = 400
=2190

Pizza Hut large meat lovers pizza 480/slice = 3840 for whole pizza

Half of two liter olive oil bottle = 7980

14,010 and that’s without the Chinese buffet.


Either way, good job Daniel! That sounds delicious. You better be ready to bring your Thanksgiving game.

I already called him out about turkey day.

That article you linked was pure gold. I enjoyed this especially:

Now before you lay into it, I want you to sit on your couch and just stare at that . I want you to understand that that pizza right there is keeping you from your goals.

Re: mmmm

I had a large italian sausage, pineapple, and canadian bacon pizza from pizza hut today. Get some. The night cap is 5 fried eggs.

At what ambiguous point does an undereater become a hard gainer?

And another one for the skinny folk strawberry hulks from smoothie king. Wow.

Re: mmmm

I don't get why anyone would want to be a massive hulk of muscle...

Is that even healthy?

I think at one point I was on some level malnourished.

When I graduated high school my vision was something like 20/100 in both eyes. I got into college and started training to enter the military.

Gainer shakes, fish oil and a multi-vitamin. Went to OTS and had 20/45 in both eyes. Fast forward, in spite of being in the water ridiculous amounts, military grinder pt, and cf I went to get my class 3 and my vision was 20/20 in my left and 20/25 on the right.

Now not having to be in the water so much and do a bunch of beatdown pt (largely due to a foot issue) my weight has exploded to 165! Heck yes.

Now the vision thing could be a natural progression but I don't think me stuffing my face all day to maintain and slightly gain a bit of weight hurt at all.

Oh and why I quoted you.

The strawberry hulk is an amazing concoction by smoothie king.

I don't want to become a heaping slab of strawberry hulk. Jeez.
