So, for any other hardgainer reading this, it's obvious to me now that, if you REALLY want to gain quality mass and muscle, you're going to have to step out of primal, or at least, expand your "primal borders."
I went out to my local health store and bought
3 bottles of pure goat milk
3 tubs of pure greek european yogurt (one of them had 34 gs of carbs per 1 cup serving!!!! But, you're going to need alot of carbs, don't make the same mistake I did)
1 stick of pure, pasture, cultured, lightly-salted butter
I'll have to find some better butter next time, but this isn't that bad
Also, eggs will be your best friend here.
Instead of GOMAD, I'm doing what mark suggested, ADEAD "A dozen eggs a day"
Honestly, I'll probably go past that.
Breakfast is going to be MY biggest meal of the day, that's what I've decided.
I am at a small, private university, and my primal options at our large cafeteria are VERY limited. Therefore, most of my quality protein will come from outside of the university food. I'm trying to find a good farmer's market right now.
Anyways, the un-natural eggs I can deal with.
I'm getting too far into this right now, so like I said, the day that I eat, i'll record what I ate that day, so i'll update my diet as I go along, along with everything else.
WISH ME LUCK!!
