    Before you ask, I'm 5'6", 155 lbs. This is my diet ...

    Meal 1 (6 a.m.): Bowl of raisin bran, orange, cottage cheese with fruit
    Meal 2 (9 a.m.): Chicken sandwich on whole wheat bread with spinach, apple
    Meal 3 (11:30 a.m.): Chicken breast, sweet potatoes, rice, frozen vegetables
    Meal 4 (2:00 p.m.): Chicken sandwich on whole wheat bread with spinach, vegetable like green pepper or carrots
    Meal 5 (4:30 p.m.): Pasta, two hard-boiled eggs
    Meal 6 (8:30 p.m.): Protein shake, 1/2 cup oatmeal with blueberries and milk

    I'm usually in bed by 9:30 and I think I'll be stuffing myself silly if I try to eat any more. I eat on 15 minute breaks at work and don't have any extra time to eat more on them.

    Even eating six meals/day, I am finding that I am gaining no weight at all. I am just maintaining. So I am thinking to turn to weight gainers in order to supplement my diet.

    My main question is what's supposed to be a decent weight gainer?

    supplement yourself with musclemilk/cytogainer with good food.

    will help fill that calorie void.

    if you are set on a weight gainer shake, make you're own. it will be cheaper and healthier. milk + whey + oats + peanut butter + banana etc

    I'm not skinny. I just haven't really seen any weight gains (I'd like to get bigger) so I want to eat more.

    Thanks for the tips. Sounds like making my own is the way to go.

    Are you sure you're intolerant to lactose and not mil protein? You should be able to eat cheese even if you were lactose intolerant because the bacterias digest it. One could be allergic to the protein, do you stomach whey well?

    I don't know exactly. I would guess around 12%. I will grab my roommate's scale later on tonight and see. I just find I'm not getting enough calories in my diet where I'm seeing any weight gains. I'd like to see some muscle growth but I feel like I'm not getting enough calories to do it.
