    Here is the protein/supplement powder I recently purchased to gain muscle and weight. I was wondering if anyone has tried this, if it's effective and safe for those wanting to gain weight quickly?

    Well I hope you didn't pay much, because you just bought a bunch of sugar, cheap soy protein and egg protein. If your looking to gain weight, and actual muscle why don't you eat more of your regular foods?

    If you are looking for a great shake, pick up a good taisting choloate protein power then put that in a blender with some oatmeal thats been cooked in the microwave then put into the fridge for a min. (real 100% oatmeal not that instant crap) Throw in some peanut butter and cottage cheese and bam. It taste kind of like a peanut butter cup but 1000000 times better. I made these last year and they helped a lot as each shake had about 1000 calories. I have found that biotest grow protein taste the best, but its more $. I think right now its 25 bucks for 2lbs but at least its whey and casein. trueProtein.com is also good and cheaper. Get the black star labs flavoring though.

    But you can't have that shake everyday and shouldnt need to anyways. I would assume and even if you could it sounds like you should put some effort in changing your diet and researching what you should be eating. Whole wheat bread, natural peanut butter, any nuts, brown rice, oatmeal, beef, chicken, fish, oilve oil, cottage cheese are all good foods to look for. Don't forget your veggies and fruits too.

    Thanks

    Well hampshire, thanks for the response and advice....I need more protein and vitamins in my diet, and am looking to add about twenty pounds so I thought this might be a quick fix. I do not want some crappy sugary supplement though and would much rather gain weight on real food, naturally.
    That oatmeal/cottage cheese/pb shake sounds delicious. All three foods are staples in my diet already though...I never thought to combine them into a drink. I don't use natural peanut butter though. I mostly buy Jif and generic brands. I do use real oats and not the pre-packaged kind. Also, I drink a lot of milk for protein/calcium....and eat nuts regularly. Nothing seems to be working. I think I get plenty of fiber (maybe too much) and that fills me up.

    www.fitday.com use that site. its free and it will help you track your calories. I have an exam right now but I put on a good 30lbs of muscle last year after my kidney injury(long story) but ended up going from 160 to 190. Are you currently keeping track of your calories? Its a pain at first but as you do it more it gets to be a lot easier.

    Here's MY question. If you aren't familiar with the product, why didn't you ask these questions BEFORE you gave them your money? Really, people, think about these things before you blow your wa...llet. These companies aren't interested in promoting your health-just appropriating your cash.

    Good question...however, I am not the one paying for it. My parents recommended I try it and I basically just chose the flavor.

    Just eat more if it a calorie substitute!! If you can't be bothered eating meat then consider a protein shake but the calories should be made up by eating other foods. Go eat some yummy stuff like pasta and unsaturated fats. These added vitamins and crap would all be unneccesary.
