I would personally recommend Universal Nutrition REAL GAINS Vanilla which is the weight gainer I'm taking now. It tastes great by itself and even better when you throw a banana in it.It tastes like a banana milkshake when I throw it in there. The powder is dense so it mixes great and it doesn't leave the shake clumpy and bulky.
Here's the nutritional content:

Really? Damn I've never thought of that? lol I just saw the cholesterol content right nowOriginally Posted by alguard
Oh well, I guess I'm going to have to cycle weight gainers if I can find one with lower cholesterol.

NEWSFLASH: Maltodextrin is technically not a sugar, but it acts just like one. It's a high GI carb and it's great at spiking insulin levels.

I've read that a Maltrodextrin/dextrose blend is optimal to include in your PWO shake.Originally Posted by Moyer

I think 99% of the weight gainers on the market are crap, nothing more than a sure fire way to put on boatloads of water and fat weight and small amounts of muscle. I've though about this and next time I bulk i'll probably just use double servings of Prolabs Lean Mass Matrix, that way i'm getting 100% quality ingredients. The only gainer i tried was Mammoth 2500 by Interactive, it tasted good and gave me tons of energy but i put on stupid amounts of fat. It's not worth it. Nutrabolics Isogainer looks good as does MHP's up your mass, they have the right idea.

Danny - read the nutrition forum or search for low GI post workout.
Dex/malto for post-WO is not optimal.
Unless you want a higher propenesity for body fat storage with your shake....

Like the others said, it's not really optimal. BUT, if you're going to have a low fat, high GI weight gainer, PWO is probably the best time. Either that or split it up so you drink a little at a time all day, thus avoiding the big insulin spike.Originally Posted by dannyboy9

Actually - I think before-WO would be better in that regard Moyer.
Then you have a much better chance at the carbs being used as fuel than deposited as blubbery fat (like what's over my abs).

It's just something I heard...its not like I do it myself.Originally Posted by jmh80
I could be less interested in how beneficial or not it is cause I'm not doing it.
I've read the nutrition forum.

Yet you just advocated the use of a weight gainer with malto as the first ingredient? If your not interested in learning then you are in the wrong place.Originally Posted by dannyboy9
Edit: This in from your log.
AST VP2 Citrus Splash = Post Workout w/Gatorade
MHP Glutamine-SR = Post Workout w/Gatorade
Gatorade is dextrose

Sorry if I came off that way. I write pretty much to the point and I forget I'm on the internet and people might perceive what I'm saying 100 different ways. My apologies sir.Originally Posted by bpmartyr
I apologize if I came off rude or arrogant. Those weren't my intentions....
I don't think a weight gainer with maltrodextrin would be extremely detrimental in any way because I'm not taking it PWO, would it? I thought that's what we were talking about....post workout nutrition?

Yeah I know. I just started doing that about 4 weeks ago. Seems to be working.Originally Posted by bpmartyr

'Biotest sucks' comments aside, there new 'Metabolic Drive Complete' MRP/gainer looks an awesome ingredient list (with exception to their choice of fat used) although a tad on the expensive side.
Just finished up a bag of Serious Mass, had great results (or was it from the TST/TRN/superdrol). Good way to get a hell of a lot of calories on a semi clean bulk, since the scoop is more of a shovel, price is a winner too. I mixed in some ON Gold Standard to reduce the carbs and up the protein.
As people has stated making your own is often the best option
