    I'm looking to buy a weight gainer to help me get a little bigger. I've been eating my ass off (gotta love having a cafeteria at school) but my metabolism is ridiculously fast, so I figure I might as well try a supplement to try to help gain weight. I was looking at CytoSport Cytogainer, because it's the top choice on bodybuilding.com but I am open to other suggestions.

    I use cytogainer and have had great results while taking it. Tastes great, mixes well, and I cut the serving in half and use pre/post and before bed.

    Any more questions on cytogainer let me know and I'll try to help out...

    universal real gains is good. high calories, low sugar, low fat.

    what works better is: milk + 2 scoops whey + oats + banana (all blended)

    What flavor did you buy? I'm probably gonna buy the 6lb tub of it because it's fairly cheap.

    This works very well too and is cost effective and tasty.

    Cytogainer ftw, but cookies n cream is NASTY, IMO. The vanilla shake is way better, and it mixes GREAT with orange juice or some other healthy fruit juice. Blend it up with some rolled oats and it's even more awesome

    Those weight-gainers are 90% maltodextrin and are far worse than most fast food.

    MRI Quickgainer. For some reason I got 2 tubs for $19 each, normally $60. Tastes great, but I only do have the powder or it's like drinking toothpaste. I use it to help in the morning since I'm not a big breakfast eater.

    I'm kinda afraid of using cytogainer because I noticed it has 3g of creatine. I've never taken creatine but I have heard some of the side effects are pretty bad...

    this x10000

    after almost a year ive come to realize that if you have the time, make your own gainer shake. Track the macros and if it fits, and its relatively clean the blend, drink, profit.

    Hair loss, acne, and it can fuck with your liver/kidneys. :dunno: I guess I wouldn't be opposed to it if I read up on it more.

    I can't tell if you are fucking around or if you are actually worried about supplementing with creatine :dunno:
