    Would keep the weetabix or oats to be honest.

    As big_mal said, the sugar is junk and will cause an energy crash not too long afterwards, it'll make you crave carbs again, much better to stick with complex carbs and benefit from the slower energy release

    Gaining fat might seem like a good idea in theory if you're skinny but in practice it doesn't work out. You'll end up still skinny but with a sticking out belly

    Why dont you concentrate on eating a large amount of high quality nutritious foods as opposed to eating blatant crap.

    If you take a calorie surplus from nutritious foods you will gain more quality weight.

    If you take a calorie surplus from crap, you will end up looking like my skinny fat mates.

    What is more appealing in the long run.....

    a) Slow sustained gains resulting in a weight gain consisting of 75% LBM

    b) Fast gains giving a weight gain consisting of 75% fat mass?

    Your approach to bulking results in option b, whereas you really should be aiming for option a.

    ok enough is enough

    please, no more posting topics "i want to get fat" its becoming tiresome and does not send out a good message if supported

    coco pops are crap
    adding bodyfat quickly for the point of social acceptance is also not clever

    cheers
