Is Olive oil good for bulking?
 
I heard that if you take olive oil straight it is good for bulking. I do want to bulk up a bit so is this a good option for me? If so how much would I take of it a day?

I don't advocate drinking olive oil. Use olive oil or butter on your salads and meats. No need to drink it. Olive oil, red win vinegar, salt and pepper make a very tasty salad dressing.

It you need calories, add cheese, sour cream, whole milk, etc. Don't drink olive oil. Why torture yourself?

I'm with BtB, I love it on a salad mixed with vinegar or dipping bread in it, but I wouldn't just drink it.

I heard Dave Tate say he used to put it on everything during bulking. Like a pizza topped with olive oil.

Depending on the pizza, that can taste great. But if you don't like olive oil, just get 2 pizzas! :chow:

Technically, any oil is good for bulking, because it's calorie dense...but, as stated already, no need to go overboard on it, you still need solid food.

I saw one cyclist, going across the globe making friends as he went, who ran out of food but had a bottle of olive oil left and I have to admit watching him drink it straight made me wanna gag :tomato: Don't get me wrong, I like olive oil but drinking it straight, erm, no way!

This is all really good info to know. I hate how oil tastes, but if someone told me to drink it to bulk up I would. I am glad that there are other suggestions though as it sounds really gross.

Poured olive oil on my tuna today as I was out of mayo and didn't feel like making more. It was as terrible as it sounds.
