man, i get all kinds of crazy shit back from blood tests.. sometimes high creatinine levels, liver enzymes, and most recently bilirubin levels. the shit you eat and your exercise routines most CERTAINLY effect your blood levels.

but to keep things on the safe side, id suggest sticking with organic.

if gomad is working for you, without much fat gain.. keep with it. it surely is an easy way out.

btw.. most of the gains i made on gomad, i lost when i cut back the fat.. for me it was a worthwhile experience, but id probably never do it agian.

THIS. Its an easy way to get in calories but it is in no way the best or even optimal. Look at the majority of people who have done GOMAD. They get extremely fat and may make strength gains but either way they add unnecessary mass killing their strength:BW ratio

That may be true for many people but my experience hasn't been like that.

Secondly, just because you're drinking plenty of milk a day doesn't mean you don't still need to pay attention to your body. Some people (like me) can handle nearly a full gallon of milk per day, some people can't. You need to scale up and down based on your own needs.

As far as it being a fad, milk-based diets have been in and out of the research for over a hundred years. There's a number of doctors, as in licensed MDs, that have used milk diets successfully in the past to treat all sorts of things. In the lifting world, GOMAD and variants (without such a catchy name) have been used for a very long time too.

GOMAD isn't the solution for everyone, but it's an effective solution for some.
