The general meaning there is eat... eat... eat...eat...
Here is the thing. If you want to put on quality mass you will have to eat alot of lean proteins etc... If you just want to put on size you can dirty bulk.
Overall though you will not put on weight if you do not eat. Keep a food journal and write down everything you eat. If at the end of a month you did not gain weight then you no you are not eating enough.
If you weight 128 pounds I will suggest thinking quantity of food not quality.
That sounds crazy and doesn't sound healthy either.
I do understand the theory behind it though.
I'm currently on Whey Protien which I take once every day between meals because I can't afford to buy in between meals all the time.
Just make sure you're lifting heavy without injuring yourself.
These are the reps and sets I do which can apply to every excessive and have noticed some decent gains.
warmup reps (12,15) normal reps heavy set (4,4,3) then back to a light set (10)
But yeah remember to eat eat eat as well. Preferably healthy food with high calories to give you all the energy you need to lift those heavy weights.
easy way to calculate is 18 * your weight for you it's obviously (18 x 128). which would be the average amount you need to maintain your weight. Once you got your number just consume more calories.
