    Optimum makes decent products but you would be better off with a homemade weight gainer. You can use whey, casein, eggs, bananas, oatmeal, natural peanut butter, flax, etc to make up the macros you want. Homemade option would probably be cheaper as well.

    Thats one serious protein mix,lol, talk about MRP. But i would just get yourself some bulk whey, and then you can add in w/e you want to make your own bulking shake. Much easier to tailor the shake to what you need/want this way, sometimes you might only need 500 calories instead of 1250. When buying stuff i always think of what i cant do myself, i cant make whey so thats what i buy.

    its full of maltodextin aka sugar not good. I like up your mass by mhp what I do is take half of the recommended dose 2 scoops and then add Pb, oats, milk, bannanas, water, and ice. That makes your 30 bucks last alot longer and helps get natural calories not just powdered knock off stuff.

    For a prepackaged gainer that is hig in cals and not that high in sugar its fine. It really does not give you anything a tub of whey and maltodextrin wouldnt.

    I liked Optimum Pro Complex Gainer better... tasted better... fewer calories, but I think it's healthier that way.

    Well i got my bas of serious mass today all chocolate and made my first full shake. Should have gone to the shed and grabbed my shovel, seeming its about the same size as the scoop lol. I drank it straight from the jug and it wasnt bad flavour. Felt a bit bloated afterwards but yea not as bad as everyone said. I plan to have 2 full shakes a day with milk so 3300 just from that plus all my other food on top.

    i don't think anyone needs 250g of simple carbs at one time, unless you're 260 pounds of muscle on gear.
