no milk?

I dont drink milk, so no GOMAD, but I'm still trying to gain weight. Any suggestions?

Eat, eat and then eat some more. What are you're stats age/height/weight etc. ?

I'm 6'1, 170 lbs and 18 years old. I dont drink milk and I'm finding it hard to gain anymore weight than this and still eat healthy

When you say you "don't" does that mean cannot or will not? Sounds like GOMAD is what you need with that height/weight combo.

Otherwise, chow lots of good proteins. A lot.

I guess I'll tell you what I tell people at my gym when they say the same thing... stop eating like a little girl. If you want it that bad, then shove some more food down. You practically get 100 calories in a tablespoon of olive oil, IT'S NOT THAT HARD!

umm... you eat the same things you eat now, just more of it. Maybe a lot more. Maybe a sh*t-ton more.

I can relate, though. I run into financial issues with eating as much as I need to if I want to really put on substantial muscle. Even GOMAD is way, way too much money to justify... that's $100 a month on milk! Not a chance in hell am I going to pay that in my current financial situation.

So what to do? I say screw getting bigger... try getting STRONGER. I've at least doubled every single lift I've ever done since starting to work out, and only gained 5 lbs. I only weigh about 130-135. I went from scrawny to ripped and weak to strong as hell (for my size, anyway). Too many people think getting big is the only way to get strong... they are all wrong unless you're trying to get ridiculously strong. Especially if you're already 170, even at 6'1" (if you do the math, you've actually got a nearly identical BMI to me, telling me that you're not THAT skinny).

170lbs at 6'1 is really really really skinny. Eat more and put on some weight. Don't be afraid to eat starch during your weight gain phase.

Eat 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight, every day. Take in 5000 total calories a day. With consumption of fatty fish, eggs, sweet potatoes, and olive oil, this shouldn't be that hard....or all that expensive.
