    Make your own. I suggest you get 5 pounds of whey, some oat flour or whatever carb you want to add and some 2% or whole milk, really that is all you need. This way if you want to get some in at night, you can just do protein with fats instead of lots of carbs too. They are a rip off, always make your own.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    I dont like weight gainers as they detract you from eating solid food and mess up your appetite.

    I eat smaller, balanced meals throughout the day --- then A pizza or burger and fries at night.

    So I hope I get 3000 from normal meals then 1200-2000 with my nightly feast. Its hard to eat with small appetite.

    U don't look like u eat a pizza or burger and fries... Everybody says they do though.


    OP, I don't mind weight gain powder at all...
    U need to use this and still eat many meals this is just iceing ok the cake.
    I used
    -Serious Mass (too many carbs)
    -Up Your Mass (good carb source)
    -Real Gains (taste was eh...)

    I heard true mass is good as well. Mix that up with milk, 2 scoops p butter and some 100% egg whites powder and a banana and you're rockin man!

    I don't need a weight gainer. I can gain very easily. Too easily. Anyway I'd rather chew my calories than drink them, besides I have teeth.

    Did what you recommended, looks good on paper but tastes like absolute ****. Couldn't think of a worse thing to consume in the morning. Now I see why gainers are quite pricey

    Hmm, I guess it would depend on the flavor of protein added. I use chocolate flavored whey, 2% milk and rolled oats

    I use to drink that all the time as well. You learn to get use to it. If the taste really does bug you (im assuming you dont like the taste of raw oats) substitute some kashi go lean original. More fiber and protein then raw oats and tastes better IMO
