    although this same topic pops up every week its like this...marketed weight gainers are not budget friendly and you can make your own for less money, high calorie is high calorie...

    i have to agree with hvactech, it's better to do a mixture of whey and other foods as a weight gainer. it's better economically speaking and you can better modify the foods to meet your intake you need for the day. when i was bulking this past winter, i was mixing quaker oats with whey and greek yogurt, for breakfast and snacks

    but to answer your question. best powder form weight gainer in my opinion is ON pro complex gainer and to take a multi-enzyme formula while bulking, to help break down the foods better.

    Pat is on the disabled list for the rest of the week with some GI issues. Weight gainer is basically protein with a bunch of carbs and or fat added in. You can usually do better and tastier by yourself. Have you seen the ridiculous serving sizes? I cannot speak for anyone save myself, but that's why I don't use it

    I've had success with UN Iso Mass, but it doesn't mix well and doesn't really taste great but it works. I've also had success with Up Your Mass, that tastes pretty good and mixes easy. I just like trying new stuff, wanted to see what everyone else is doing.

    Here is a recipe I use. 1-2 servings of Whey or a protein blend, as much natty p-nut butter as you can stand, Yogurt (I use greek yogurt), honey, liquid egg whites, and milk. Calories depend on how much you want to use.

    As far as gainers, I have had to use them since 95. And I have used everyone that has ever existed it seems. My only advice is avoid the ones with a high suger count unless you love the hershey squirts. Universal Nutrition makes Real Gains and Gain fast. I've used these 2 for the past year because you can get them rather cheap and they offer 10lb bags for $34 and $46. Thats about 30-32 servings. I usually take half of the servings. Cytogainer, Up your Mass, Iso-mass Xtreme Gainer, True Mass, and beleive it or not Mass-Tech (only one time bc it was all I could get at the time) are all gainers that I have good results with.

    Food is a weight gainer. If you want to gain weight eat food. If your not gaining any weight, eat more food until you do.

    when i was a teenager i used to make this stuff called peanut roll. peanut butter, honey, and milk & egg protein (before there was whey and casein there were only two choices in protein pretty much - soy and milk & egg). mix it all up and roll it into a log. put it in wax paper and put in fridge. it was like eating lead

    sounds great.... so i guess we are a lil spoiled nowadays with our nutritional supplements. I mean some casein shakes taste like desserts well to me anyway i eat almost only meat and veggies so anything with flavor tastes even better to me.

    Soy milk?. You mean your not deathly scared of soy?. I've seen so many ridiculous threads on here about people avoiding soy like its the plague, thinking its gonna grow them a pair of boobs. I remember one thread where this kid was going into the supermarkets and looking at every single brand on tuna to make sure it didn't have any soy in it before he purchased. I don't drink Soy myself, but I also don't believe its gonna to turn me into a female. The hysteria about it on this board is sky high. If I get some soy in my diet so be it. I've even read that it can be beneficial.

    i know people roll their eyes when they say i drink soy milk. but i dont drink cow milk anymore because i dont think its great for my digestive system. and the other options - rice, almond etc. are all high in carbs compared to soy milk

    i dont drink anymore than a cup or cup and a half of the stuff a day. If i were drinking 5 cups then i would be concerned about estrogenic effects on the HPTA but a cup and a half is below any threshold of problems i believe.

    Wendy's Super Bar. I've got a friend that moved to Cali a long time ago. He gained over 60 lbs in one year eating at Wendy's super bar every day.
    He went from a skinny bean pole into a bloated tick in 12 short months.

    They had them in Massachusetts. It was all you can eat and included dessert. Honest to God I've seen people eat their weight in 'salad' and then fill a plate with a pile of chocolate pudding you could fill a pot hole with. Uggh. Long time ago though. Around '82 or '84 I think.

    it's funny that people **** all over soy for the estrogenic effects it might have, but then they drink half a gallon of hormone rich milk!
