Best weight gainer on the market?
So what's the best weight gainer out there these days?? My opinon is N LARGE 2 by Prolab!!!
05-14-2006 12:57 AM
I used N Large 2 back in the day when I was first starting out. It actually worked pretty well, but I think if I had kept using it it would have eventually made me fat. I started out underweight, so it helped me, but I know a lot of people feel it has too much sugar. I usually make my own weight gainer shakes when bulking, but if you are gonna buy one I suggest Cytogainer. Cookies and Cream is bomb!
If I want to have a home made weight gainer I do this: 2 cups 1% milk, 2 cups oatmeals, 1 scoop whey protein, 1 table spoon peanut butter, 1 tiny container frozen yogurt. Yum yum eat em' up!

2 cups milk
1 scoop choc protein powder
1/2 cup oat powder (grind it in a coffee grinder)
2tbl all natural peanut butter
1tbl flax powder
1tbl coconut oil
it breaks down to
cut out the coconut oil if you dont want that much fat but I like it for mct's to burn for energy, you can substute any kind of oil (olive, almond etc.) or just cut it out to get rid of 14g of fat. 12g of the saturated.

I have a hard time considering weight gainers as part of a diet. I can see myself drinking one if I really needed to.
Something like the above is a good idea..

agreed. i hate weight gainer. all it is is sugar. FOOD is the best weight gainer imo.

Cytogainer by Cytosport because it only has 5g of sugar. N Large 2 has 28g of sugar.

only 5g sugar right but here is what is in their add: "Carbs are complex maltodextrins from corn hybrids ". And it has 84gr of maltodextrins per serving or 56% malto. Nlarge has 89g of carbo per serving for a total of 59%. Basically the are both the same in term of malto. That is a lot of malto. This is not because they list only 5g of sugar that it's not gonna be fattening.

Prolab Lean Mass Matrix is not a 'gainer' but is very nice. 1 pack with 16oz of milk is around 550 cals and it tastes very good. Try Cinimon Oatmeal flavor. The profile is also impressive with mostly grains and whey.
Best protein product on the market currently.

I like how "On Mass" tastes with 1 scoop, 1/2 water and 1/2 milk. It tastes good enough to choke down twice a day.

This product looks pretty affordable. Anybody else use it?

Try any weight gainer that containes a good amount of dextrose and mix one ounce of safflower oil and 20 grams glutamine, 15 grams of BCAA's, r-AlA 200-400mg, and quality digestive enzymes caps. You might also want to include lecithin granules in that mix, especially if you have a history of high cholestrol. Also, I love sublingual b-12 complex since b-12 has poor bioavialability when ingested. Try this in the morning w/ a quality multi-vit. thats for active lifestyle and an hour after your post workout prot/creatine/arginine shake assuming your diet consists of quality whole foods like complex carbs, diary, meats consisting of lean cuts, and last but not least EFA's .
Every individual responds differently to a particular diet so always be consistent w/ a current diet and jot down every single change including what you ate, how well your intensity was at the gym, moods, and of course body composition. Hint never rely on the scale for any progress use the mirror.

Two cups of nonfat milk
2 scoops of BioPro Protein
1/2 banana (frozen)
1 TB peanut butter
1/2 cup of oats
Personally, I think BioPro is the best protein out there. 2 scoops has 36 grams of protein and 12 grams of glutamine.
