I like n large 2. Cytogainer. And I love isogainer by nutrabolics. Up your mass is awesome too just wish they had a better protein profile

But if you wanna do a gainer, I like Isomass by Ultimate Nutrition. My gainer recipe was:
16oz 2% milk
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1-2 cups frozen blueberries.
I don't do a gainer now I think they are a waste of money personally. Buy food or if you want a high cal shake, mix 1 cup oatmeal with 2scoops whey or casein, and 16oz milk. Good carbs and a lot of calories/protein.

I forgot to ask, what's your diet like? What is your macronutrient breakdown you eat or are going for?

I make my own now personally also. But out of the ones I've used those stand out.
I use 2 packets oatmeal or cream of wheat. Protein powder and either PB or mac nut oil or evoo or even coconut oil

Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
yea weight gainers are just a whey with a bunch of maltodextrin. You end up gaining fat because you are taking it 200 gs of carbs per serving NOT after workout. You are definitely better off making your own by adding PB, oats, berries, some carbs, to a big whey shake. Eating late at night is crucial if you want to slow down your metabolism a bit to gain weight. Cook a pound of whole wheat pasta and feed on that with your meals throughout the day.

My first weight gainer was Isomass. Gained weight like crazy, 10 lbs in one week (probably 50% of it was water retention though). But it tasted like ****, I gagged each time I drank it.
I've been currently on Quickmass cycles for the last 2 years. I'd say I gained around 10 pounds from it for those 2 years. Tastes pretty good.
I ordered some Megamass 2000, should be getting it in a week. Seen a picture with Fedor and Alexsander Emelianenko they're pretty jacked and they look like there sponsoring it ot it must be good stuff lol
The best weight gainer though I would say is Russian Bear 5000. It's got roids in it I bet. I couldn't get my hands on it though cause it's illegal in Canada. I wouldn't use it unless I tried something less drastic.

Complete waste of time.
For night, drink casein protein. It is slow disolving, low grade protein that keeps your stomach full for the 8 to 10 hours that you're sleeping. I personally use Syntha-6. Tastes awesome and I dont have a sore belly in the morning (Makes it a bit hard to eat a full breakfeast though)

I beg to differ on the olive oil/flax seed. Good fats not only help add size but help with healthy hormone production. I always added flax/evoo to my shakes when bulking.

I never tried it myself but ya it probably would help if used in moderated quantities...

My personal favorite is up your mass by mhp. I know it has alot of fat but a high fat diet works for me
08-02-2009, 03:44 AM
I use Serious Mass by ON. Good stuff right there also vanilla tastes awesome
08-02-2009, 09:54 PM
cytogainer id say is the best tasting but chalk full of malodextrin. it does work wonders in terms of weight gain though even if its fat haha

IDS Smart Gainer:658 calories (2 scoops), 51 protein, 88 carbs, 11 fats, 7 sugar. Its great stuff plus packed full of aminos such as glutamine, arginine, creatine malate, leucine, valine, ect... I love it and it taste great very smooth not chunky great for hard gainers

Very interesring to see everyones opinions

1.5-2cups ground oats (coffee grinder)
16oz Soy milk (whole milk would be better, but my stomach doesn't do that any more)
2 scoops whey
1tbsp coconut oil
This is roughly
900 cal, >65g protien, 27g fiber, >70carbs
The taste is great w/ the coconut oil. Plus between the coconut oil and all the oats it has to be good for my cholesterol.
From here you can add a banana, apple, blueberries, ect or just drink as is.

Of course it depends on your Cal/protein needs and what else your eating, but 1-3x a day including the 1-2hr before bed meal.
I eat 7-8 times a day. About every 2hrs right now.
I will usually consume two of these daily, then get my other 3-5000 cals from the 5-6 other meals.
Just finished my mid morning meal which was one of these with an apple and blueberries. By noon I will be starving for lunch.
