Diet help

Hey guys, I'm a male 5'8" 135lbs with about 4-8% body fat.
I'm looking to gain some clean bulk. In the past I've basically just tried eating more but my metabolism is extremely fast and I've had a hard time gaining any mass.

I was wondering if you guys could give me some tips to gain some more clean mass so i could stay cut.
Thanks


p.s. I did use the search button but I'm looking for some more direct advice than what i found.

Sorry, there's not much to say other than "eat more." Your body can't create mass out of thin air. You've got to give it building materials: food.

Try T Nation, or Bodybuilding.com, both sites cater to what you're looking for.

Re: Diet help

If you have in fact used the search button, then you surely have read about SS and GOMAD. Therefore, I can only assume you are looking for a simpler answer then that. I am not flaming or hating on you, but that is the only answer. Eat more and lift big. Gaining mass is not easy, esp. for some people (in fact most people), and you will have to consciousely work at it.

Whatever you have eaten in the past, eat more then that. Good luck.

+1 and I don't NEED to do that but, I thought the SS/GOMAD would help. If your metabolism is that good, you won't have to worry about the extra carbs milk will give you. Hopefully it's all go to muscle mass.
