gomad is the most stupid idea to gain weight I've seen in a while.. it's like a recipe made for mentally handicapped people.

ahah

I think Gomad is pretty retarded too. Any such concept is silly in my mind anyway.

I think the essential idea is promoting milk protein, which as been shown to be a good complete protein for MPS

I think this thread was edited or something because I sure as hell didn't start it.

Regardless, the whole GOMAD thing is from Rippetoe and co. and does work very well for those young 17-25 guys who are rake thin and go to the gym every day and complain that they are a "hard gainers", when generally speaking they are a small eaters, and given that it takes about 5grams of carbs (or 20cal) to turn a gram of protein into muscle that protein shake alone isn't going to cut it.

However most of us I think generally are trying to do the opposite, and in which case this could be relevant:-

Yep, this thread seems to have been split at some point.

No idea where or when or by who (sure wasn't me).
