Grow! Whey or Metabolic Drive

I'm trying to put on mass right now and I'm stuck on which protein poweder to buy. Should I buy the Grow! Whey or do I go with Metabolic Drive Complete? What are the advantages of each? Which is better for gaining mass?

Grow! Whey is just pure whey, Metabolic Drive Complete can be used as a meal replacement as it contains high quality protein and carbs.

I’d go with the Metabolic Drive Complete.

Take Grow! Whey only upon rising or around your training sessions.
Take Metabolic Drive any other time.

So I would get Metabolic Drive.

Grow! Whey is a fast digesting protein while Metabolic Drive is a slow digesting one.

hope this helps

Ok, so since I’m planning on buying Surge for workouts, I should just go with Metabolic Drive?

Better for gaining mass? Mass comes from bombing a muscle and then feeding it the required calories in the form of carbs, fats, and protein, to grow back bigger and stronger. If cost isn’t an issue I would go with the blend of casein and whey from Metabolic Drive Complete as this has more calories per serving then the Low-Carb Version. If cost is an issue go with Grow! Premium Whey and add whatever calories in the form of milk, or fruit, or oil (olive/fish) that suites you.

If you TRULY are a hard gainer, which I doubt, the answer is calories. Most hard gainers simply dont eat enough to gain muscle.

If that is the case, I would buy Metabolic Drive Complete as ectomorphs tend to handle carbs just fine. Eat several times throughout the day and add in 2 or 3 Metabolic Drive shakes.

The Grow! Whey is a good shake to drink anytime protein requirements need to be increased. If you eat a meal with very little protein in it, throw 2 scoops into a glass and have at it.

Yes. When I’m not watching my carbs as much, I go Surge surrounding my workouts and Metabolic Drive either morning or night.

Just to make it clear, I never actually claimed to be a hard gainer. I am trying to consume more calories in my daily diet. My question was merely, which would be better. Thanks for the advice everyone.
