    No, mass gainers just make it easy to get what you really need to grow. Calories. You don't need the weight gainer at all if you eat enough. That doesn't mean anything and everything. It means enough of the right things. Good Luck sir

    Ive always liked making my own weight gainer, that way i can control the macro's and caloric values based on my current diet.

    I would start off with 2 scoops Protein and a 1 or so cups of Oats grounded up, from there you can either add water or milk, you can add peanut butter for good fats and banana for a bit quicker carbs aswell. Very versatile thats why i liked it soo much.

    Whether you use a gainer or not is irrelevant - if you're bulking, all it is useful for is to get in any extra calories that you might not be able to get in with food (and food should always be your first port of call). You can use MyoFusion and make your own shakes with oats, yoghurt/ice, fruit, etc. Your gains are going to be dependent on whether you are eating enough/getting in enough calories!

    Watch your nutrition - start at only ~200 calories above Maintenance and see how you go. Adjust it according to your results - if you don't make gains, go up to ~300 calories above Maintenance and so on. Common sense, really.

    Look into calorie/carbohydrate cycling (yes, it can be done for a bulk, albeit not often for a traditional bulk). If you're bulking you can expect to add some bodyfat - where it goes is individual-dependent - so don't stress it (you can take of off easily enough afterwards).

    If it's that much of an issue, consider trying to recomping instead (monitoring nutrition is essential here).
