Alright, folks, my previous protein shakes were 400+ and 500+ calories, respectively, now, I swig a 800+ calorie protein shake 3-4 times a day!

The ingredients and nutritional values are:
1/3 Cup Carnation Instant Breakfast Rich Milk Chocolate (130 cal, 1g fat, 27g carbs, 5g protein)
1 Cup 1% Low Fat Chocolate Milk (160 cal, 2.5g fat, 1.5g sat. fat, 11g carbs, 8g protein)
1 Cup Skim Milk (90 cal, 0 fat, 12g carbs, 8g protein)
1/3 Cup Saco Mix'n Drink Pure Skim Milk powder (80 cal, 0 fat, 12g carbs, 8g protein)
1 Scoop ON 100% Whey Gold Standard Protein Powder (120 cal, 1g fat, 0.5g sat. fat, 3g carbs, 24g protein)
3 Tbsp Carnation Malted Milk powder (90 cal, 2g fat, 1g sat fat, 15g carbs, 2g protein)
1 Tbsp Bob's Red Mill Natural Raw Whole Flaxseeds (53 cal, 3.6g fat, .3g sat fat, 3.6g carbs, 2g protein)
1 Tbsp Olive Oil (120 cal, 14g fat, 2g sat fat)

Totals are:
843 calories
24.1g fat
5.3g saturated fat
71.6g carbs
57g protein

Try drinking 3-4 of these down each day with and/or between meals, and then get back to me on how much you've gained! Try it for a week, and if you don't gain a pound, your next shake is free!

My 1000 cal shake has more protein and fat for less ingredients, why not all whole milk?

I want to get healthy fats from nuts and oils. I eat walnuts thoughtout the day, snd add flaxseeds to my oatmeal and some shakes.

What's the best weightgainer?
