Thats a pretty bad diet…check out some of the bulking articles on the site to get a better idea of proper food choices. Also if you must take a commercial weight gainer have it early in the day as oppose to nighttime so your body has time to utilize all the carbs from it.

c the thing is…the guy in question…has managed to put on 16 pounds of mass while maintaining very very low % of BF

While it’s not the healthiest diet in the whole world, if it’s helping him reach his goal then it’s effective for him.

Now imagine he ate a decent diet, most likely his gains would have been better. That being said if he is gaining quality mass with what hes eating and its more of a convenience/money factor then so be it, keep it up.
