Default This May Not Fit.

I'm not a loser I'm trying to gain. I'm 39 and since 10th grade I have weighed 155lbs. I have always been lean. Over the last few weeks I have been hitting the weights hard. I would normally eat 1500/2000 calories a day. Lately I have been trying to stuff down 3000/3500 calories a day. Good food not junk. That's a lot of food. My appetite has grown but I am still having to force those last few bites. Not saying I know how it is to be used to eating more then trying to eat less but being used to eating less then trying to eat more sucks too.

Careful on the calories, they'll give you weight you don't want!

Peanut butter is your friend when trying to pack it on. and if you don't mind working it off, mix it with syrup and dip in your favorite bread.

Calories don't build muscles...

I won't get into a fuss about calorie intake and muscle growth as it takes a combination of many things to build real muscle. Just trying to help the fellow out, peanut butter is a calorie dense food with good mono-unsaturated fats, omega 3, and protein used as a staple in many powerlifting and body building diets when trying to make gains.

Boss, do not worry about how much you eat. Eat what you can and DO NOT over eat as it will not help out anyway. I would also add, make sure you eat at least 1.5 to 2 grams of protein per lean body weight. That is the key along with the other calories that you need as well. I have been lucky and had a larger frame to begin with, but what put me over the edge and hitting my goals was a high protein LOW Carb diet (eating the right calories at the right time of the day). There is more to it, but those are the key ingredients to putting on muscle quickly.

You noticed I did not talk about your workout routine. That is because as long as you're hitting the weights hard and pushing yourself to its limit that is all you need to do for working out.

Weight gain is 70% diet, 30% workout routine

I'm not looking to bulk up just put on a few pounds of muscle. If it takes time that's fine. If it doesn't happen that's fine too. I'm in pretty good shape already but have started working out as a preventive measure. My job is pretty physical and keeps me in decent shape but I want something more to help with muscle loss due to aging. I guess it's my ounce of prevention so to speak. I don't go to a gym I workout at home. With work and family I just not able to be at a gym for an hour or two everyday. At home I can hit the weights when I have 10/15 minutes to spare. I keep going back anytime I have spare time. It may not be the best plan but it has to be better than doing nothing.

My problem with peanut butter is that it taste to sweet for me. I do not eat sweet stuff. On the rare occasion I do eat something sweet it will be a small bowl of ice cream.
I also do not drink milk. I love dairy foods and things made using milk but you will never see me drink a glass. Weird I know. Lol

I'm waiting for a grass fed beef pitch, I'm guessing you aren't over marketing for the farm. Lol

Peanut butter is not the way to go about it unless you want to put on fat, especially dipping it in syrup on bread. This isn't the 70's and we know a lot more about nutrition now.

8 grams of protein per every 180 cals, and those 8 grams may not get used.

"Protein" isn't a single thing, so protein in peanut butter is not the same as protein in chicken. Well rounded amino acid profiles are what you need for building muscle, not some fat gainer that swells your face.

Aim for 1.5 grams of protein per pound of body fat, spread it out evenly through your meals (38 grams per meal in your case), lift heavy in the 12 rep range doing super sets, and save that syrupy peanut butter carb ball for right after your workout to give back to your muscles what was depleted in your workout.
