GOMAD alternatives

Hi all,

Wondering if there are any reasonable alternatives to GOMAD that would produce the same affect. For example, eat a stick of butter (easob) or drink a cup of olive oil (dacooo), eat a pound of lard (eapol). Please ignore the acronyms but I was just curious. I'm not currently doing GOMAD nor have I done it but I've read from a number of posters that they've had difficulty stomaching the volume a gallon a day. So is there something else thats easy to get, cheap, calorie dense, lower volume?

Thanks, Noah

I think the beautiful thing about milk is it has carbs, protein, fat, and calories all in one. Butter, olive oil, and lard are unfortunately all fat.

Sorry, I know you probably didn't mean for it to be funny but I just made a very akward loud roar in the office when I read that. Nathan has it right on BTW.

No alternative that does the same. Start slow and gradually build up.

Re: GOMAD alternatives

Yep, progressively load your milk consumption. If I can do it at about 150 lbs with a relatively jumpy stomach, you can too.

Combine that with the BOBAD and you've got a winner.

Re: GOMAD alternatives

I like topping laden frozen pizzas as an alternative.
