View Full Version : Universal Weight Gainer

Hi, I'm trying to gain a few pounds of muscle without too much added bodyfat. I do some sort of cardio in the form of basketball or baseball or swmming nearly every day. Since eating 4-5 smaller meals doesn't seem to be enough, I'm thinking about adding a Universal Weight Gainer (Universal because my mom can get some items wholesale for a lot cheaper than you can buy online or at GNC) shake before bed. I was wondering if this would be more likely to increase my bodyfat than just eating more clean food.

the answer to your question is yes.. because most weight gainers contain way to much sugar.

You are better off eating clean food

Well in a sense yeah...

Weight gainers tend to be more simple, sugary carbs..

However If you are bulking you should not worry about this too much...

How about split the portion into 2 and have 6 meals or use it postworkout as one portion when those type of carbs are better?
