    Allergic to Dairy and Seafood, Diet Help for the Newbie

    Hey everyone. My name is Rich and I am new to the forum. I would like to thank all of the experienced gym rats who dedicate there time to posting educational threads on this website, especially Austinite! I'm 31 and weigh 150 at 5'-9". I have been in and out of the gym for around 5 years. I have always struggled to gain weight, but after visiting the diet section, I see that I need to get my caloric intake up. My metabolism is through the roof, and I'm HIGHLY ACTIVE. The biggest difficulty I have always had (especially regarding protein intake) is that I have a lot of allergies. I'm allergic to all dairy (Milk, cheeses, eggs, WHEY, casein, etc) and all Seafood. In the past, I supplemented a pre-workout shake of some kind with nitric oxide, vitamins, caffeine, etc included, creatine monohydrate, amino acids, and a soy protein shake, but my results over time were always minimal and I plateau easily. I have never been big on breakfast, which needs to change, I usually eat a descent lunch, and 4 or 5 meals from around 6-11pm for dinner. I probably need to be eating more during the day. I'd like to get my weight up a little before starting a cycle. Some say unless you weigh at least 200lbs, a cycle is useless. I believe Austinite has a thread with recommended weights based on height, which stated 175ish I believe. 25lbs doesn't come easily. I guess if it was easy, anyone would do it. Thoughts, comments, concerns.

    Hello Newbie, and welcome to the forum! The 200lb weight minimum is nonsense. The most important thing regarding weight is BF. It's best if you cycle with 15% bf or lower to reduce the occurrence of side affects. Hit up the diet and nutrition section, they can help you find a diet that will work around your allergies. Good luck bro!
