    Hello

    I've always had a hard time eating enough to maintain my 150 lbs due to a fast metabolism, and riding only makes that problem worse. I've been using Boost Plus/Ensure Plus to supplement my diet which are reasonably well balanced high-calorie drinks; the problem is that those little bottles are expensive and generate a lot of trash. Does anyone make a powdered equivalent that I can buy in bulk?

    Edit: I know that Ensure sells its regular stuff in the powdered form, but it has significantly fewer calories than Ensure Plus.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    ever try cheesecake? Check out the Protein Factory website.
    They have weight gainer powder for shakes that have much macho calories.

    Have you tried making one of these sandwiches?





    I think 30,000 calories apiece should do it!

    Thanks guys, but I'm looking for a healthy non-bulky solution. I already eat huge quantities of real food.

    Non-bulky, eh? Fats have the highest calorie-density for their volume. So... have some greasy thick creamy cheesy foods. Fettucine alfredo/carbonara is some the most calorie-dense foods I've found. You can take in 1000 calories of carbs, 500 calories of protein, 2000 calories of fat for a total of 3500 calories in a single plate! Add some extra bacon and pastrami from that sandwich and you can be over 4000 calories.
