    snickers are a great pre/post workout

    carbs- protein fats.

    winning all the way around- it was never my go to until I realized it has so much more bang for it's buck than a pure chocolate bar that I would normally reach for.... so it's my go to when I need a quick higher cal snack.

    I'm sure they're great.
    I don't care for caramel lol

    Plus, a candy bar and a most protein bars have very similar stats but the candy bar is waaaaay cheaper lol

    OP - you have received solid advice, I suggest that you follow it. the one thing I noticed is that you do not weight your foods. If you are not weighting your foods then it is entirely possible that you are not hitting 3700 a day and are in fact eating less, hence, no gain …I would suggest investing in a food scale...

    Explain then carefully to the class please- if you would be so kind- how YOU would recommend someone add extra high calorie- but minimal satiating impact foods?

    We are ALL ears.

    Poptarts are fortified with micros. 1 box per day. No worries.

    Lets look at your activity. If you do a physical job every day then blast it in the gym, then you may be in a calorie deficit. Also, the type of training you are doing can have impact on your gains. A lot of things come into play here. I have been there, when I was young in my 20s I could eat 4000 calories and still lose weight. I trained briefer with more intensity, lots of rest and recovery. Do not eat junk, good clean food. Get your macros right. If you are a hard gainer, 3 maybe for super intense workouts a week thats it. And yes, bump up the calories about 500, go a few weeks, weigh yourself take measurements etc and adjust accordingly.
    Wrong. One doesn't need "clean" food to bulk. I ate 10 donuts on Saturday alone. I'm 45 years old and less than 14% at 220 lbs. To bulk you need calories, not super intense workouts.

    I would 'reverse diet'. Increase Carbs and Fats ever so slightly each week and monitor your weight. Until you gain around a pound or two each month. Slow steady weight gain. Hit the big 4 in the gym and go heavy.
