Are you looking for a Whey Isolate or a blend?
I'm thinking it might have to be chocolate flavored, since my experience with anything vanilla flavored is pretty nasty. So far the only advice I've gathered is not to go with anything muscletech.
Right now I've got a thing of GNC brand Mega MRP Extreme vanilla flavored, and man it tastes so bad I think I might have to throw it out.
Are you looking for a Whey Isolate or a blend?
I've only used two brands for the past two years or so: Anabolic Innovations (I'll miss you peanutbutter whey isolate ) and Optimum Nutrition.
Edit: We posted at the same time...Those are lofty goals. Supplements are just that...supplements to your diet and training. I doubt you'll get 20 pounds in 1-2 months off of almost anything (that's hefty even for gear). Diet is going to be key regardless of your goals. Search the bulking forums. There's way more info there than any of us will ever be able to read.
Start by figuring out how many cals you need per day and then search macro nutrients aka macros. Are you an athlete? Why the need for so much weight in such a short amount of time? Bodybuilding is not a sprint, it's more like a marathon (I think I read that here somewhere...I'm not that poetic...it might have been B5150 or BigV )

Whey Isolate absorbs faster than casein and blended proteins, which is most beneficial post-workout. If you're looking for a protein powder to use in more of a meal replacement or pre-bed scenario, a casein based blend like Xtreme Formulation'swould be a good choice IMO. That's what I use.
protein anddefinitely wont put 20 pounds on you in 1-2 months. those are steroid results, not protein and NO results.
I personally prefer Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey...Cookies and Cream flavor. It tasted great so I stuck with it.
My favorite isolate protein is ISO-100. You can get it from nutraplanet at:
It takes awesome! It will by no means pack on 15-20lbs in 1-2 months however. With your stats though, if you eat like a damn horse you can probably gain 10 lbs in 2 months. Eating and sleeping are the two most important things. Make sure your getting atleast 8 hrs of sleep a night.
IMO NO products are junk, so I won't even comment on that aspect of the thread.
Your best bet is Xtreme formulations Ultra peptide. It is an blend of 51% MC and whey isolate. Or Ergo Pharm GF PRO which is an isolate.
For putting on pounds, your best bet is steak protein, and lifting heavy ****!!!!!
If your 6'0" and 150 you may want to look at some weight gainers with a little more calories in the protein. For post work out optimum is ok because it has a little hydrolized protein for post-workout. Muscle Milk is another easily available shake that you can use for bed time or MRP and will have a little more calories and some slow digesting casein and dietary fat.
for bulking up i love ON's Pro Complex Gainer. I like the chocolate and banana is actually really good. ive used this on numerous bulks. its not one of those 1200 calorie gainers more like 620. very easy to drink. 1 shake/day can easily put 1lb/week on you for sure. add that to eating like a horse and creatine mono. if you want to get big your diet has to be in place. 20lbs is a bit crazy for 2months. its taken me all year to put 25lbs lbm on.
i lifted for a while and didn't use protein shakes even. once i started having protein shakes and a **** load of eggs i gained 10 pounds in two weeks. i went from 150-160. it was a weird ass diet. i had eggs at breakfast eggs at lunch with two turkey sandwiches and then just ate "a lot" haha later in the day. i had decently sized meals but i was by no means eating properly or anything. anyways... whey protein 3-4 times a day could add a good amount of weight on you. i had 1 at breakfast, 1 lunch, 1 post workout, 1 before bed. many suggest casein protein because idk the words for it but whey puts the protein right into your system and casein protein is a longer lasting kind of thing. hopefully you kind of understand it more now?
If you looking to Bulk I would just get some of GNC's bulking product in chocolate, because its hard to messs up chocolate. Just take it like twice a day on top of what you allready eating
As for protein ON whey Double chocolate is good, but there vanilla tastes like ass
A cost effective way to bulk is to go to Sam's Club and get the 6lb bag of EAS 100% Whey for $28. They have chocolate and vanilla. Mix that with some Waxy Maize Starch from NutraPlanet and presto, instant weight gainer.
Why recommend GNC products? They are a rip even if you have the finances! Order in bulk from nutraplanet stick with a quality brand such as Optimum nutrition.
