    Its better than a gainer because your getting quality calories not just 4 scoops of maltodextrin. If you want just calories and don't care about getting fat, I would recommend Muscle Juice by Ultimate Nutrition.

    Whey, oats, and pb will be your best gainer that is good for you too. Not protein rich, but another good gainer is a simple pb&j sandwich. Use whole wheat brean, sugar free jelly, and natty PB.

    YES he needs to do research! Holy cow. Doing a great job in this thread Joebo - repped.

    GAINERS SUCK! Go with whole foods like the others have suggested. Also, WHOLE MILK, EGGS, STEAK, CREAM, GRITS, AVOCADOS, COCONUT are your friend.

    Also, don't say you're eating "a lot" without disclosing how much "a lot" is. 7 or 8 large meals (800cals each) a day is a lot. "stuffing your face during dinner time" is not how you gain muscle - continual measured eating throughout the day is.

    I'm not saying you need to eat 800cals 8 times a day, I'm just giving you a frame of reference - takes a lot of cals to fuel hypertrophy.

    If I was to gain mass how many of those protein shakes with all those healthy ingredients would I take in a day?

    Thanks,
    If you're stuck on buying one of those two then I'd go with pro complex but I agree with everybody else,make your own. I was sceptical at first also when people told me that on here.

    Right now I make one shake a day and I eat in in two separate meals. It's dank. I use bulk Maltodextrin because I can't stand using just oats as my carb source.

    1 1/2 cup Whole Milk
    3 Eggs
    1 tbsp natty pb
    75g Maltodextrin
    140g blueberries
    1/2 cup oats
    1 scoop whey

    Well over 1,000 calories. Something similar to that is ten times better than any weight gainer on the market...and cheaper.

    Like I said before, you really need to do some research on nutrition and diets. There isn't a set number of shakes you need a day. You have to find out your baseline caloric intake to maintain and adjust from there. Typically in 500cal increments as needed. Gainers in my mind are overpriced. Hell, just buy a tub of carbogain from NOW and add it to your shakes if you want even more calories. There is nothing special about gainers in general. The only one that I find solid is MHP "Up Your Mass" as it uses ground oats in it, but its way to expensive. Get a coffee grinder and grind your own and scoop in a shake as needed.

    Best natty pb i've found is Skippy Natural. No oil on the top, no need to stir, and tastes damn good.

    well thanks to everyone that posted, and helped.
    i know i need to do alot of research and i have.
    so now i have more of a better idea of what to do.

    I can tell gainers arent really anythign special, as some are just full of sugar.

    Thanks again, and so far i'v bin eating alot more oats for breakfast, occasionally Skippy PB.
    I'm still ganna stick with MRI Pro-nos as my 2 scoops of whey, and a banana after workouts.


    I hope this helps me gain,

    Thanks guys
