    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.

    That doesn't sound bad either. I might do that. Used to do something similar to my oatmeal.

    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.
