    Gomad?

    Shop Now
    Have anyone heard about "Gomad"? where you drink like 3 gallons of milk a day alonside with paleo eating to gain muscle size really quickly?

    I know is not really primal, since it comes from a cow :P and we don't process the lactosa very well and so on, but what's the science behind it?

    I mean, it is a cheap source of protein, carbs and fat that can go with paleo.

    What do you think?

    It's called broscience.

    You're fast becoming one of my favourite posters on here.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    It's not broscience....it's just a simple way of getting calories in and protein sufficient for gains. Milk is great for muscle gain, milk exists for young animals to grow and it will also help you grow. I feel like the only time I'd go full on "GOMAD" is in the situation of a very skinny guy trying to bulk up. You can achieve gains by eating enough calories and protein, milk is just an easier way of doing it.

    You wouldn't want to be in the same room as me if I drank a gallon of milk.

    its not broscience at all. its basically a cheap and simple way of taking in an excess amount of calories, with a pretty solid protein/fat/carb ratio. its often unnecessary, when an ample amount of calories are being taken in by eating whole foods. although someone who is trying to gain mass would still benefit from drinking an extra quart to 1/2 gallon of whole milk each day, on top of their normal caloric intake. a 1/2 gallon of whole milk contains 1200 calories, 64 grams of protein, 64 grams of fat, and 96 grams of carbs, and only costs a few bucks.

    I would definitely have a problem with all that milk:
    - not sure I would break down all the lactose ...
    - not sure I wouldn't react to casein one way or another

    Seems highly unhealthy to me. Why not, if you really really want something of that kind, ingest some high quality, sugar free whey powder ? You will get the protein boost, insulin spike but at the same time, keep blood glucose stable (glucagon at work).

    Milk makes baby mammals grow. If you're a baby mammal and looking to grow, drink some milk, if you tolerate it well.

    If you're a six-foot tall 130 lb teenage male and you want to put on some serious mass, squat heavy and do GOMAD or ADEAD or whatever is necessary to put some meat on your bones.

    Bulk/cut cycles aren't broscience, but they're for people who are willing to deal with a little pudge down the road in exchange for facilitating their gains. They're not for everybody. Neither is leangains, which operates toward the opposite end of the spectrum. Both are valid choices so long as they align with your goals.
