Good morning everyone I've put on 2.2 lbs on my first day of loading. I'm not sure how much weight I should put on. Is it around 5 lbs? Thank you all.

There is no set weight as it is about fats intake not pounds gained. I have seen up to 9 pounds gained by loading properly. If you focus is on fats only and not breads proteins etc you will do really well. Drink 1/4 gallon of heavy cream each day of loading and we will be sure to have sufficient fat in your blood stream.

I followed your advice and got the heavy cream. Thank you!

Great! The more fat in your blood stream the more comfortable you will be throughout your round.

What is heavy cream normally used for, I don't think I have ever tasted it.

It is whipping cream before being whipped... I never buy "cool whip" anymore, as I make my own using heavy whipping cream...

Yes, heavy cream and whipping cream are basically the same thing. I strongly recommend you never use processed food like cool whip.

Barf, I'm loaded to the gills and then some! I gained 8 lbs! Ugh, I don't like to see those numbers so I hope it drops quickly! I don't do dairy, but I did for loading. I forgot how amazing melted cheese is! It was a celebration of food and now I want to lose 20! Woohoo!

Sounds like you did a good job loading, Tiffany! Sometimes those low calorie days can't come soon enough.
