Food.

In addition to food, which should be your main priority if you want to gain weight, you can consume a lot of extra calories quickly by drinking shakes throughout the day (helpful for people who don’t have much of an appetite).

Make them yourself using a good quality protein powder and other stuff like peanut butter, milk, bananas, etc. (do a search for more suggestions on what to put in a shake).

Most people here will tell you that the calories in weight gainers mostly come from sugar, and you could get these calories in better form just by eating healthy foods.

If you really want a supershake put this in a blender…

whole milk
oats
peanutbutter
Metabolic Drive complete

Throw enough of listen in there, and it’ll be well over 1000 calories. Add two or three of those inbetween meals and you’ll gain weight.

Other than that, most weight gainers are crap and just have a lot of sugar in them.

I like all the stuff with oats and peanut butter etc. But usually find it much too filling.

What I do now is chuck 1 cup of skim milk powder and 1 or 2 scoops of whey protein in a bottle. Then when it’s meal time I just add water and shake it up. These shakes have loads of cals. and you’ll be starving within 2 hours and be able to pack away heaps of solid food.
