Best Tasting Weight Gainer?

Not to familiar with high calorie protein (weight gainer ) powders.

I know GNC has something like a 1840 or 2200 or something?

But what other powders are available that offer so much calories?

Yes, yes… I love the Biotest products too. But curious what else is available.

I personally like the Ribeye (cooked med), baked sweet potato, sliced avocado, and a glass of milk weight gainer.

Seriously, I couldn’t tell you. Probably because you’re better off using a homeade version, something like a couple scoops of Metabolic Drive, 2 Tbsp Natural peanut butter, cup of oats, cottage cheese, milk, walnuts, EVOO or flaxseed oil, ground flaxmeal, etc. You can put a slew of things in there to get the calorie content you’re looking for, well over 1,000 cals is easy to achieve. These are all high quality cals and not sugary fillers that you’ll find in most weight gainer products.

Good post.

My bed time shake is 1400 calories full of goodies. Don’t buy the sugary weight gain crap.

I am a fan of the ISS research gainer matrix mixed with thier whey matrix. It mixes really easy and stays about as thin as whole milk so it’s easy to drink. Not to bad expensive.
I use

2 scoops gainer
2 scoops whey
1 bannana
1/3 cup PB
3 cups skim or 2% milk

ends up being 130 grams Protien 200 or so carbs and some fat, about 1500 cals. I drink it 1/3 of it 45 before work out and the PWO.

I haven’t tried Surge or Grow yet but it is supposed to be pretty ausome stuff.

The sugar in that one doesnt seem too bad but I still rather get my carbs from oats but hey, what do I know?

Milk, does a body good.

I tried Pro-Lab’s N-Large a year ago. Good mix of macronutrients, good price, tastes like a chocolate milk shake (which it should with all that maltodextrin).

mmmmm… Ribeye and milk

Ribeye and skirt steak.
