I weigh 180 pounds and am supposed to take in about 4500 calories per day. I can easily take in enough protein every day, but the total calories is what gets me.
When cycling, is it necessarily a bad idea to take in a lot of calories in the form of traditionally not-so-healty foods, such as lasagna, pizza, burgers, etc.? It just seems like it takes forever to get in enough calories per day just by eating tuna and drinking skim milk.
What foods or products would you guys recommend? Thanks.

i would assume you are bulking and am looking for a calorie surplus.....it really doesnt have to be too hard to take in that many calories...if you can get in the protein then the carbs can come from potatoes, yams, rice, brown rice all very dense in cals and high in good carbs. also eat a lot of beef, and supplement with a good amount of flax oils, use olive oil on your salads...healthy fats and calorie dense....also you may want to look into a weight gainer sup. the only one that i would use is PRO LAB Lean Mass Matrix because the carbs are from whole grains not sugar and they are cheap and tasty.
