Boost/Ensure

  1. Boost/Ensure


    Has anyone use the nutritional supplements boost or ensure to gain some weight?


  2. Hell no You could buy a ton of steak and rice to do that while not drinking that nasty crap.

  3. Do they not work or do they just taste like crap?

  4. Taste like crap and as far as meal replacement for weight lifters there are much, much better products out there. I still suggest whole foods as much as possible.

  5. I have used ensure before when I had fallen rather ill.

  6. Yeah but that's because your syphilis was acting up and you're old.

    These are not supplements; they are marketted as meal replacements. As Jay has already stated they are not cost effective compared to whole food; for the same price you could buy some decent real carb and protein sources.

    One thing they do have going for them is convenience. IMO a better, cheaper convenient source for extra calories to gain weight is a protein shake with a lower GI carb source like milk and/or oats.

    I think what Size was saying that Ensure is only good for when you're too sick to get solid food down.

    (1) The nutrient content is far underdosed.(For gaining weight)

    (2) The negatives from the sugar content outweigh the benefits of the product.(For gaining weight)

    EDIT: Sorry Size, didn't mean to infer that it wouldn't help in a situation similar to yours.

    It helped me get nutrients and calories while I was ill. When healthy and able to eat, one has much better choices.
