So I have been luckey enough to be blessed with the ability to work at mcdonalds...I work after school from about 4-11. How am I going to get all the calories I need? I was thining a weight gainer shake n just sip on it but are there any that are GOOD and not just filled with sugar?

any other ideas

Make your own weight gainer shakes at home and bring them with you. There's some high calorie shake recipes in the Recipes section of these boards. Store bought weight gainers are garbage. Is there a fridge you can put your shakes in at work?

How many breaks are you allowed at work?

I know when I worked at McD's in HS, I was able to eat some of the food while on break. In addition to a home-made weightgainer shake, bake up some grilled chicken for yourself. Many people I worked with would bring their own drinks to work, like pepsi or gatorade and stick it in the fridge while they worked. Just remember to not chow down on Big Macs or 1/4 Pounders all the time...that's what I did and I grew a tummy.

Wrong. There are PLENTY of weight gainers that contain glucose polymers rather than simple sugar. I'm with you on the homemade weightgainer thingy, but sometimes its a big pain in the glutes to weigh out and blend all these seperate items rather than just put 2 scoops of gainer in some milk.

You know what they put in? Maltodextrin, which is 2 glucose molecules together. Maltodextrin and dextrose have essentially the same effect in terms of insulin spike and GI value. The annoying part is that maltodextrin can be sold as a complex carb, even though it has the same effect as a simple carb.

I was referring to maltodextrin and/or dextrose. I haven't seen any fructose-containing weight gainers yet (which would be horrible).
