    25 bucks? ha. you can buy so many more calories in solid food with 25 bucks, why would you waste your money?

    its expensive and you don't get many servings, and i'm honestly biased against any gnc product, but my cousin used their weight gainer and got tremendous results.

    I don't care what you do, but JUST DON'T BUY FROM GNC!!!! If you like being overcharged then by all means buy from GNC but i bet you can get whatever you're looking for , for cheaper elsewhere!

    But hey, I just hate GNC

    if solid foods aren't helping you to gain weight then you aren't eating enough, calorie wise

    with or without weight gainer, if you aren't exceeding your maintenance calories by a large enough margin, you still won't be gaining any weight.

    if your maintenance calories are 2600, and you only eat 2000 and get another 600 from the weight gainer, it still isn't going to make a difference.

    track your calories

    how much are you eating?

    i'm ~155, and always felt like i ate alot & never gained weight, now i actually calorie count my way to ~4000cals/day (while consuming 155-225g's of protein/day). i've gained a healthy 9lbs over the past 6 weeks. .

    I drink it with water and mix it with a blender and it tastes fine, would taste even better if you used milk.
