I've been working about for around 2months now, without no real noticeble gain in size, but definate improvment in muscle definition. I'm 5ft 7", age 18 and around 133lbs.
I've been hitting the gym randomly and not eating enough, or eatin the right foods. I'm trying to increae in muscle-mass, and with my current weight and height, i Need to eat around 2200 calories a day in order to increase in size, rather than improve my muscle defintion.

I've made my own shake of good nutrients (as u can see), just wondering if its ok?
i've just got some prograin and its "ok", but Im looking for something to mix it with. It says it should be drunk with water, but what else could I drink it with?

It says I should take half a scoop before workout and a full one afterwork out, or is it ok to have a full one before workout and a nice meal after words?

You are grossly underestimating the number of calories you need to consume in order to gain size.

Well, actually, caloric consumption can be trained for. The more you eat, the more you will expand your stomach. It is not comfortable, but you can expand it over time. You will most likely need to in order to reach your goals.
