GOMAD is exactly what it says on the tin, you take in 1 gallon of whole milk a day. I believe it started with starting strength from Mark Rippetoe as a way to get people struggling to get enough calories in, to start boosting up. Both books its shows up in (SS and SL) state that you will get increased mass, though it does not state the sort of mass you are going to get. A casual check of people who have kept logs while on it reveals mixed opinions.

Weight Gain. 25lbs weight gain during the 1st month is common on GOMAD. Read the GOMAD success stories, especially Bluestreak's.
If the thing limiting your progress is insufficient calories, protein etc then clearly GOMAD will help. However, I would caution that, if you wish to follow it, view it as a supplementation, not as a true long term fix.
I have never heard of it increased to 3 gallons of milk. 1 gallon should give you:
200ish grams of carbs
120ish gram of protein
100-110 grams of fat.
IT is however certainly a cheap way of getting said calories in.
