Well some people are lactose intolerant and can't handle large amounts of milk and in some cases none. I like almond milk though. Doesn't taste good but its good for youOriginally Posted by AaronJP1
i use almond milk all the timeOriginally Posted by R1balla
Dare I say weight gainers CAN have their place but should only be used to complement not replace proper foods..
Whole milk + ultra skim milk imo is the ****. Get saturated fats from the whole milk + 11.4 g of protein per 200ml (boosted with calcium and vit D) from the skim milk (which has more protein due to the reduce fat content). As the OP is mildly lactose intolerant this solution doesnt apply but this is a much cheaper alternative than a weight gainer. IMO anyway.
Damn where do u shop! Lol thats killer cheapOriginally Posted by R1balla
Thats not too bad cost-wise, depending on how much servings you get. Where i am a weight gainer costs double that hence myon them. In the wrong country for supps im afraid haha
i used to use cytogainer all the time. now i use basic whey, myofusion, with pb and fruit.
i use dymatize elite mass but one of the major online supplement stores has their warehouse 5 minutes from my house and i have a friend who works there. has about 16 servings (2 scoops) but i only use 1 scoop and i add alot of my own stuff into the shake to get the most out of it
cytogainer doesn't taste half bad actually, forgot about that stuff
What's $30?Originally Posted by R1balla
I've tried a few, don't mess with too many now. Home made ones are pretty easy to make, just a bitch to clean the blender.
I've used Real Gains, Up Your Mass, & Serious Mass. Serious Mass tasted pretty good but 250g of carbs!
Been wanting to try Carnivor Mass, but don't think I'll be messing with too many gainer shakes too often in the future. We shall see.
Make your own gainer bro. These off the shelf ones are all sugar laden with some marginally better than others. Just load the blender with skim milk, oats, cottage cheese, and almond butter. Weigh out the ingredients so you know it's a 500 cal shake. You will get wayyyy better results doing this instead of some hokey mass produced gainer
Agreed. If you are in this game then you know nutrition is key, and time must be alloted, otherwise you short change yourself on gainsOriginally Posted by mr.cooper69
Cooked sweet potato, couple dashes of cinnamon, plain greek yogurt, 1 scoop of vanilla protein. Love it. Get good carbs, protein, and some probiotics
