    I'm going to start taking weight gainers and whey protein, and I was wondering if you guys have any recommendations as to when I should be taking each (when each day).

    Thank you.

    spread them out. weight gainers are just whey, sugar and some other stuff thrown in, a waste of money

    I wish I had your problem, but just eat lots of foot and eat healthy. Natural Peanut Butter with whole grain bread will do wonders for gaining healthy weight. Just make sure you are doing some cardio or weight lifting as you don't want to gain fat.

    ^a healthy pbnj sandwhich is a great snack in between meals. if you are talking about weight gainers you are going to be working out right? you should probably take a protein shake after your workout, within 30-40 minutes or so of your workout. weight gainer shakes could be taken anytime i guess because it is just a bunch of calories and protein. try to eat full meals and drink plenty of milk. eggs, tuna, chicken are all easy too.

    Let me tell you a little trick i used to do when i was into all that muscle head crap

    first of all dont mess with regular createine u are wasting your time
    get Krealkaline way safer and way way way more effective

    heres the real trick though
    go to a place like super supplements that has an OPEN BOTTLE RETURN POLICY

    buy the weight gainer then empty the container replace 3/4 of the container with flour and then put the original contents as the top 1/4

    keep the leftover 3/4 in a plastic bag and then return the bottle and get your money back
    works every time

    trust me when you are young and have no cah this is the only way to do it

    creatine mono is the most proven at the moment.
    weight gainers are still expensive mixes of whey, sugar and a few other overpriced supplements.

    just drink milk, eat eggs
    the 5 lbs were most likely a bunch of water, and then more muscle than fat. good work

    Ummmm, unless you're taking 20g or more of creatine mono (For those of you who have never taken it, that is a ridiculous amount; more than 90% of it will be out through the pooper in an hour.) there isn't any danger to your kidneys.

    Milk just ain't milk anymore. Are we talking no fat, low fat, full cream...

    Stupid question!

    Which is the best type of milk to pack on the pounds with?

    Buy the book Starting Strength and and drink a gallon of whole milk per day in addition to eating food like a man.
