I know all about having to change it up to trick your body when you plateau, but that just doesn't work for me. I don't have a bunch of money to go on some kind of weird diet, nor do I have the time in a day to consume huge amounts of calories. I do eat a lot, though.
It's very simple. Make sure you squat and deadlift and if you are serious, consume 5000-6000 calories a day of red meat, eggs and dairy. You'll gain weight, mass and muscle.
