Thanks I check out info on both...yeah I need way mor calories...I'm a real hard gainer and it turns into a bit of a chore ..I always love to eat but lately I've been really trying to put it on and I feel so bloated and look preggo
That's why I always saved the "bulk" cycle/phase for the fall. Sweat shirts and hoodies so I could get bloated and not give a shit how I looked.
Just gotta force the food down and try to supplement good calories where you can. Milk for water, olive oil on various foods, etc. Don't forget to up the water to help flush out the excess sodium. That might also be giving you the water retention and bloat, that comes with an excess in calories.
