    Not too familiar with weight gainers, but I imagine that they have fat in them....Not a good idea PWO. If you are going to use one, I would use it as a meal during the day to try and bump up the cals!

    Bro just add more flax in your diet and more starchy carbs (not at the same time though) Skip the gainers they are junk...imo

    No. Look at the bulking sticky @ the top of the main page in the diet forum.

    No what? If oyu add more efa's and clean starchy carbs in the right plac ein oyur diet you will gain quite nicely withou having to buy gainer. Yes you should already be puttin gin plenty of green vegi's, but they dont add cals very fast unl;ike rice potatoes yams etc.

    That's too ambiguos to answer bro.

    I've seen your questions, and it's good you are trying to learn, but you are all over the place with questions/scenarios/etc.

    Too hard to give an accurate answer to most of the inquiries because they are truly situational.

    u think weight gainers r useful ??? most of em are malto and dex with crap quality protein and fat!!

    for a calorie boost wouldnt real food be better , ie: huge serving of oats and eggwhites pancakes / or brown rice and lean steak or chicken / protein shakes(2-3 times the average serving) with oats or flax shit like that instead of all that crap hes prob gettin from the gainer??

    That wasn't directed at you, it was directed at the thread starter. After reading his intiall post again, rather then say no, I should have said never.

    Doesn't annoy me, I just commented that it's not possible to answer many of your ambiguous queries. If anything, the lack of a response would bother you and no one else.
