I haven't personally used it, but 40 grams of sugar I guess isn't to bad, it depends. There are cleaner mass gainers out there in terms of sugar, but the sugar will add calories to. I guess it depends on what you feel comfortable with. If your looking to mass up though I don't think it could hurt to much.

imo i would go with thegainer, its a much better overall weight gainer its only got 6g of sugar thats your best bet its got whey for fast acting protein and casein for slow acting proteins thats your best bet

Thanks man. I was lookin for somethin high in calories and came across this. I will look into it tho

I think you would be better off making your own gainer. All you really need is a blender, whey/casein, oats, and milk. other options include fruit, PB, cottage cheese, nuts, and yogurt.
This would be better nutritionally and you would be able to adjust the macros to fit your needs.

I have already finished 2 12lbs bags. In that period i have gained about 20 pounds. Now i cant say all of this comes from eating protein, but normally i do have hard time putting on the pounds. The taste is alright... i am thinking about vanilla next. Adding milk makes it clump up pretty bad, but it is more shake like. The scoop is ridiculous. I usually take 1 scoop in the morning and 1 after working out. While the price of the 12 pound bag is cheap, it goes real quick. there is only like 13 servings (2 scoops per serving). That the only bad part i can say. I currently live in a dorm so i dont have a blender. but i recommended getting whey protein and adding oatmeal and pb. itll be cheaper in the long run. good luck with it

I bought some today. Chocolate. Cost me $26
Put 1 serving(2 scoops) in the blender, with milk and some peanut butter.The taste was really good.
I'll try out a bag of 2 and see where it gets me. I have a very hard time putting on the pounds.

i used the chocolate once.
youll need to start out with half a serving (1scoop) a full serving is alot to start with trust me.
Definately use a blender. Its been awhile but i think i would use half milk half water and add Peanut butter, sometimes other stuff. It puts on the pounds and for the amount you are taking in 40g of sugar isnt much compared to other gainers. I think its a good buy but a cheaper solution is like what others said....a homemade gainer, but if youre lazy then this stuff would be my pick. Good price imo and full of vitamins.

Its a toss up between cytogainer, ON serious mass, and ON pro complex gainer. (all vanilla)

i had bad expirence w/ ON serious mass .. best thing to do is .. take 1/2 at once then another 1/2 later ..worked better .. i tried drinkin 1 serving at once .. and jus had stomach problems. do you have a vitamin shoppe retailer near u ?

its 20g sugar. I think its better to blend 1 scoop with skim milk & 2tbsp peanut butter. This would lower SM sugars to 10 (b4 adding milk).
if Fructose is ok check muscle juice.

40g sugar isn't too much? Unless your a hardgainer like myself I wouldn't suggest anyone else using that unless you want to put on some fat pounds too. Like mentioned there are cleaner weight gainers. I have to actually pick up a weight gainer for a cycle coming up but it sure ain't going to have 40g of sugar.

Heres the best weight gain shake..
2 scoop whey
2 tbsp PB
2 tbsp honey
2 cup oats
skim or whatever milk you prefer and throw in any extra aminos you'd like.
Then a banana or strawberries is nice, depends on what flavor whey you have..

I've made my own gainer before like the ones stated above, and this is the first time I've bought a specific weight gainer product.
I'm pleased with it so far. I drink it(the blender full) in about 3 servings. All at once would be a monumental task.

I love mixing the chocolate with scoops of PB. It really does taste very good. I think I might have just found a staple product.
I ordered some for our store yesterday.

even tho i know the low down on weight gainers and how you can make effective homemade gainers i still have thought about picking this stuff up again.
