    it is pretty pricey for the servings available...but since i dont supp with anything except a multivitamin and the gainer...its not that big of a deal.

    Heres a link to another article on how to pick the right gainer:
    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/bigj3.htm
    You shouldnt have a problem picking one after checking that out. Also if money is an issue...just google for weight gainer recipes and you will get a lot of peoples homemade gainers.

    IMO, a gainer is basically a must...especially for hard gainers like myself. Start picking them out and trying them. Odds are you wont find the perfect one for you right away....like i said, i tried a ton of them. But yea....def find one and use it.

    ight thx

    no I have not been going for 6 months its been about 2-2 1/2 without ANY weight changes. I've been at 155 forever its starting to scare me. I'll have to get back to you on the calorie intake im not keeping track i just eat when i can and im full all day.

  3. "I just eat when i can and i'm full all day"

    Heres the problem, your body gets used to your dietary habits. If you feel full all day and your not eating particularly much then theres a good chance that

    a: you have a small stomach, caused by not eating alot. To you the thought of getting in 3000 or so calories in a day is absurd, you couldn't possibly eat that much. You can, you've just got to eat that extra mouth full in each time. Just like like you push out that 1 extra rep on the weights.

    b: Your metabolism has slowed down to a crawl. If your body doesn't know where its next meal is, if your just feeding it as-and-when, and it could be 2 hours or 6 hours between decent meals, then it'll aire on the side of caution, expect the worst and slow your metabolism down.

    Perhaps if you dont feel you can eat the required amount of calories right now, then just focus on eating well and often. Once you've got your metabolism sped up, then the calories should go down much easier.

  4. I can completely sympathise with you mate, I'm 29 and I've struggled to gain any weight my whole life. When I finished school I think I was around 63kg or so, slowly over the years I've put on weight to where I am now which is around 74kg.(Sorry it's not in pounds guys, I'm in Australia and we work in kg) Everyone told me that as I get older my metabolism would slow and I would gain weight easier, I've not really found this to be true. The times I have put on weight has been when I've been serious about hitting the gym and made sure I eat well. I would still consider myself to be quite slim and I'm just about to venture into another attempt to put on weight. Reading around the forums and seeing a few real life transformations has definately inspired me to reach out again to achieve my goal of 80kg. I wouldn't like to go much beyond that or I'll be too heavy for my surfboard.

  5. I just recently started gaining and liquid meals have been a big help. I'm not talking about weight gainers full of maltodextrin. Eggs,oatmeal,fruit,peanut butter,whole milk,protein powder, and whatever else you have rolling around. I can toss 2 eggs,some egg whites,a cup of oatmeal,olive oil,a banana, and some whey in the blender. I would NEVER be able to eat all that food solid.

  6. you might want to change up your training program. post up EXACTLY what your routine is:
    Monday-
    Tuesday-
    Wednesday- etc...

    if you lift weights for 1 hour 4x a week, you don't have to do cardio because lifting can clear your mind just as well.

    Weight gainers will help you get calories, but if you're not lifting proper, you won't gain either. Weight gain is a matter of breaking down muscle and allowing for proper recovery time (ie don't work out the same muscles every day), proper nutrition, adequate rest/sleep

    weight gainer - whole milk, whey protein powder, oats, peanut butter (500 calories at least right there.)
