Yes not technically paleo...but we all know where that argument leads.
Has anyone tried the GOMAD protocol with good results? Ever thought of trying it with goat's milk? I tolerate dairy very well, and have basically no ill-effects whatsoever from goat's milk. Is it incredibly detrimental in the long-run to my gut health?
I'm lacto-paleo, and have a hard time gaining weight, even eating prodigious amounts of protein and carbs PWO. The only drawback I can see is the cost.
I also eat in a leangains style with a 16/8 approach, and hope that because of this I will be less likely to gain BF. I suppose I'll just have to try it and report back.
I've been gomading for a month or 2 now and before that I was drinking about a half gallon for a couple months. I personally love the convenience of milk and the cheapness of it, the fact that its loaded with nutrients and is a muscle building super food is a just a plus. At this point I see no reason to stop drinking a gallon a day anytime in the near future. If you tolerate dairy i say go for it, I have yet to see any major drawbacks.
I never got all the way to a full gallon. Just before turning to the Paleo diet, I went on the milk weight-gain diet, as I was significantly underweight and had tried other approaches that did not work. It blew my gut up at the time, and I only made it up to a half gallon or so a day of whole milk. I did gain about 12 lbs in 2 months. Ultimately, what I found was that it helped my body adapt to consuming an increased amount of calories. When I stopped drinking the milk, I was hungrier for more food than I was previously. I tried goat's milk, lactose free-milk, and seemingly every other option. It all blew my stomach up. It was probably the significant fat intake, rather than lactose, but I cannot say that for certain.
A Gallon Of Milk A Day (GOMAD) is something made up for skinny hardgainer teenagers who simply do not know how to eat enough to grow. If you're everything else but a raging fat burning skinny teenager I'd advise against it.
Unless you really want to gain as fastest fat as you can possibly can in the shortest amount of time.
