    that like the above poster said

    or try your absolute hardest to replace your weight gainer with whole foods and healthy fats. stick with the weight gainer when your in a bind and need the calories.

    Is no one going to point out the ridiculousness of those lifts and how they make no sense?

    no offense but 3 times a day is stupid and a waste of money. you only need 1g/lb of body weight for your protein intake. weight gainers aren't healthy. it's just whey protein and dextrose and/or maltodextrin (artificial sweetners)

    I only take one scoop of protein post workout, the rest of my diet is real food

    Eat real food. It's absorbed better than any weight gainer you'll buy, your body doesn't like synthetic. Or make a homemade weight gainer to control what you put into it.

    Try some Karbolic by ProSupps if your looking for a quality Carb product. Taken post workout it has high glycemic carbs to replenish those depleated glycogen levels.

    Dextrose powder is great postworkout for skinny guys and its dirt cheap. If you want to gain weight eat some f'in pizza, ice cream, pop tarts, and fried chicken. If ur not gaining weight ur not eating enough carbs and ur activity level is too high. Cut down workout lengths and up the "bad foods". This advice is not directed to anyone who isn't a hard gainer :P
