    Make your own, get a protein powder with a good profile, through in some natural peanut butter, or flax seed oil, some oats and or a banana with skim milk and you could easily get a 1000 calorie shake that will taste good and has solid low gi carbs and good fats and substantial amount of protein.

    Yeup, store-bought weight gainers, with all their maltodextrin, are a big contributing factor to the spare tire around my gut.

    There is one made by MHP with low GI carbs, it's the best I have seen but its rather expensive IMO. Homemade one with oats, why, and natty peanut butter is your best bet. And I'd also recommend All the Whey, I'm very pleased with the taste even when mixed in water with oats.

    Does anybody know where to get a large amount of natty peanut butter at a descent price. I'm currently buying mine from the grocery store, and paying quite a bit.

    Make your own. I'm sure you can find a recipe online. I made it before when I was in grade school for a project...many moons ago.....

    Or try some bulk retailers like Cosco, or an online source.

    That's a good deal for natural peanut butter. I'm paying around five for a little jar right now.

    As cuffs said I would look into making your own. You can buy peanuts in bulk for very cheap. Here's a recipe with some suggestions though I have never done it myself. Let me know how it comes out if you try it:



    -Combine, in your processor or blender, 1 c. roasted nuts or seeds and 1 Tbsp + 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil. Process at medium to high speed, scraping down the sides as needed. Blend til smooth or leave a little "chunky".
    -Be sure that you store in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator. Warm to room temperature to spread.
    -Makes about 1 c.
    -Some suggestions for nuts and seeds:
    Peanuts
    Cashews (Raw or roasted)
    Sunflower seeds
    Sesame seeds
    Macadamia Nuts
    Almonds
    Hazelnuts

    Here's another tip.

    Buy a coffee grinder. Grind an entire large container of oats up (it makes it into a fine powder, much like flour or protein powder.) Then put it back in the oat container.

    Next time you want a weight gain shake, just take a big glass of milk(or water) and add a scoop or two of protein powder, a couple scoops of ground oats, and a little flax oil or light olive oil.

    Save the bananas and peanut butter shakes for when you actually have time to blend them up.

    You can also grind up whole flax seeds to use, instead of buying flax oil, but I have not tried this yet.

    Also, when you get a coffee grinder, don't bother with one of those 1/4 cup ones. These will only frustrate you. I'm currently looking for a high capacity one online.

    Actually, I'm now wondering if if I could just use oat flour instead of grinding oats up on my own.

    want to know what the anabolic effect/feel you get after drinking that stuff? I tell you buddy, I have used it only once but it has remained in my mind for a long time now. As soon as you workout(I mean a real hard workout, not just the average joe workout ofcourse!!) your body is in a catabolic state, u r breathin' hard and your body is literally craving for lots of water atleast if not anything. just rush and pick up the twinlab gainer fuel and have a half or a full serving of it and instantly your body is full of energy and you can feel your already sore muscles instantly pumping and pumping. I have tried other weight gainers too but nothing like this. This is just what I have felt personally, so if you want to take a chance with weight gainers, twinlab gainer fuel(chocolate tastes really great with some skimmed milk) is the way to go. Try it and you won't be sorry.

    optimum nutrition's serious mass. cheap as hell, and it isn't thick. all the other weight gainer's ive tried (along w/ adding peanut butter, oil, coconut, whatever the **** else in regular whey)... are thick as hell and hard to get down. serious mass is awesome.

    I like Optimum Nutritions Complete Protein Diet. It is high in casein (you can taste it) so its not the best tasting/mixing stuff in the world. But it is one of the few MRP powders you can get for under a dollar per serving. Add some oats and PB and you are good to go.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH hilarious dude...some of these weight gainers turn my gas into tactical-room-clearing stink bombs.

    Best is getting off the elevator after you have left your guts inside and seeing people make that uncomfortable look like "omg what is that stink, no human could produce that..."

    HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

    I'm bored at work...
