Gallon of Milk a Day Program

Aspiring weight trainers and bodybuilders want to get big fast, and one of the best programs for doing so is the "Gallon of Milk a Day" plan, coupled with some heavy lifting.

When you want to get big really fast, there is no substitute for lots of calories. In fact, you need to add 500-1,000 calories per day if you want to gain weight. And really, the more the better. If you find yourself getting fat (it will show up in the belly first), you can back off a little or do some cardio work.

The GOMAD diet, as it's commonly called, has been around for decades. It continues to be used because it works!

It's very simple to follow, too.

  1. Go to the store
  2. Buy a gallon of milk
  3. Drink it in one day, preferably over the entire course of the day!

That's it!

Lots of folks who have used the Gallon of Milk a Day program have reported that they've achieved great success with it. It is recommended that you ease into the program; start off by drinking 1/8 to a 1/4 of a gallon a day at first to see how your body responds to it.

Obviously, if you're allergic to milk or dairy products, this is NOT the system for you. Additionally, if you're lactose-intolerant, tread lightly here.

Remember, the whole idea about bodybuilding is to achieve a heightened fitness and health level. Don't destroy your health by eating food that doesn't agree with you.

By the way, this eating program works great with the hardgainer program I put together.

It's also a great start if you're a beginning bodybuilder.

There's an awesome discussion over at Strong Lifts about people's success with this program.
