I take GNC Weight Gainer 2200 and usually take it in 1/2 servings... It has about 2200 cals and 400+ gs of carbs when taken with milk per serving (also has 70 or so gs or protein)

I was wondering if there was anything else that was really good on the market and what others were taking.

I have noticed when I am on this stuff with a decent set schedule my weight, gains, and muscularity differences go up a lot quicker.

I'm too poor to buy suppliments. I would love to if I had the cash. For now I'll chug milk by the gallon, and eat peanut butter by the spoonful.

It it necessarily bad to be taking weight gainer? I have tried to do it "naturally" but I can't eat enough.

I do sometimes.

When I started I used to substitute for food... went through 12kg of it over Summer and now the taste/smell makes me feel sick.

I used Peak Mass weight gainer - 45g protein, 50g malodextrin per 100g

Now I use one serving a day on top of a steady diet to add extra protein to days which I feel are lacking.
The malodextrin makes it ideal for a PWO shake and it's simple to put it in my flask, add water at the gym and chug on the way home.

Like I said, the taste and smell makes me feel sick and I have about 1kg left.

Once I'm done with it I probably wont buy any more weight gainer. I prefer food.

The only supplements for me are creatine and caffeine! :D

It's not bad, it's just not very economical.

My stuff was 30 (~$50) for 6kg

Think how much oats, peanut butter and milk you could buy for that!

i like muscle milk. its a tad bit on the expensive side, though, but it tastes absolutely great. vitaglo.com sells them for the cheapsest i have found. ~$19 for 2.4 lbs. if you order $50 or more, free shipping. if you dont, i think shipping is $5

Shift. There are two of them, I know they're not that hard to find.

I make my own "weight gainer shakes". I have complete control over what goes in them and they are cheaper. Usually they consist of whey, milk, PB, and oats.

I've tried making something like that before.. It just was so thick I nearly choked twice :(

Let's be men here, please.

Use more milk. Put in some PB, some whey if you'd like. Mix the $hit up...and chug it. Done.

That's one hell of a weight-gainer, Maki. 1258kcals a shake! I think I better double up my shakes.

With my hectic schedule it's very tough to eat meals. So I have to have a shake or two.
