January 30, 2009Reviewer: Charles in Virginia* Do not get this product. I've taken a number of different weight gainers and this is by far the worst. If you follow the directions, the shake is so thick, it is not drinkable. My blender could barely mix it and stopped several times until I removed some of the mix. If you use one scoop, it might make a nice protein shake, but this is not in any way a good weight gainer.
I would recommend CytoGainer from Cytosport. The taste is good, mixes well using the full recommended serving, plus it has 3 grams of glutamine and 2 grams of creatine as well. With a good workout regiment, using cytogainer and BSN Cell Mass, I added 28 pounds to my frame in about 4 months. After my gains with very little cardio, I was still at 11% bodyfat. CytoGainer is the way to go.
