Weight Gaining?
 
I have been lifting 5 days a week for a month and a half and maybe have gained 2 or 3 pounds. I have been eating so much more and so much healthier food since I began lifting again. I mean I am able to lift a lot more than I used to but I lack the size.

Weigh - 123

2 Teaspoons of Trac (Powder)

Eating roughly 100 - 130 grams of protein every day.

Sets - 2 or 3

Reps - 8, 6, 4

45min - 1hour work out

I have been considering buying a jug of weight gainer but I'm not sure if it will show me results. I wanna put lot's of weight on and so far what I am doing really hasn't paied off.

I'd have to say this to you bud, go visit the clean bulking section in the Nutrition Forum. Says in there what to do, I'd have to say add more fats, good fats to eat. More protein, just a 'tad' bit more, say 160 grams or protein, bulk up more on carbs.

Need a little bit more info on what you eat, amount of calories/carbs/fats, and ect,.

Just keep eating higher calorie 1.5g-2g of protien per lean body mass for bulking.

What are considered "good fats"?

No comment on the weight gainer?

Check out the Clean Bulking sticky.

Also Trac = bad. i used to use Trac. People here and other places turned me around. It's liquified creatine which is no good. And way too expensive. Look into creatine monohydrate or creatine ester ethyl (CEE).

Eat. Eat. Eat. Maybe 1 1/2 times your GOAL bodyweight in protein. You wanna weight 150#, then eat 225g of protein.

And once again, check out the clean bulk sticky.

The fact that you gained 2 or 3 lbs is good in that amount of time but you diffenently need to eat more. At least 180g of protein a day and about 2000 cal a day. Good fat is fish oil and flax oil, cottenseed oil, almonds.

It's just hard to eat that much when I have such little time so I am just eating things that are easy and fast, like tuna, 3 shakes, low fat cottage cheese, and every once in a while I will make some steak or chicken. Just always pressed for time.

Eat tuna in olive oil, good fat and extra calories. Yor just going to have to plan your meals.
