    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The ultimate weight gaining method.....

    I am(was) skinny as hell.

    I tried damn near everything to gain weight. Changing my diet, eating at different times, eating certain foods while working out. None of it worked for me.

    I tried eating as much as possible while weight training, no difference.

    A few months ago I got a product called 2200 Gold from GNC. It's a powder that when added to milk, produces a 2200 calorie milkshake.



    Well I tried it for a day and couldn't force myself to drink it. It was way to thick and way to chalky tasting.

    About a week ago I talked to Lu, who also has used it, and he reccommended that I break the one glass into smaller portions throughout the day.

    I tried this and not only did it work, but it worked vastly.

    This is the 4th day of myself drinking it, (1)2200 calorie shake a day- broke into the 3 small portions, and I have already packed on 6 additional pounds.

    This is the biggest I have been in my entire life, and I want to continue to put on more but I have to stop for now until after my fight(145 limit).

    The only negative side I can see so far is that I have become pretty tired and lethargic in the morning.

    So for those who of you who are looking to gain weight( I have seen a few on this board) try this. It's pretty much made up entirely of egg,soybean, and milk and runs for around 35.98 at GNC. However, the GNC near me is running a special where you buy 1 get one free. The only negative thing is that you get around 5 servings inside one container, so it's about 11,000 calories total. I just finished my first one and gained about 6 pounds. Lu reccommended that I have one in the morning, one before I workout, and one right after. I have been sticking to it and so far the results are far more than I expected.

    Six pounds in four days would make the majority of that fat. You probably feel lethargic as well because you basically doubled your caloric intake in a short time, so your body needs to get used to it.

    Well I am also heavily weight training. So it doesn't turn just to fat.

    6 days a week at 1 hour periods.

    Sunday - Upper body
    Monday - Lower body
    Tuesday - Upper body

    and so on....

    Rest on Saturday

    Not all of it's going to turn right into muscle though.

    Weight gainers are a great product if you break up the dosages and realize that you are taking the "always-save" line of products. Cheap protein + cheap CHO source + sugar + fat = high calories.



    If that is what you need, then use it. At least it is cheap.




    This discussion is similar to the premium vs. cheap beer talk.

    I just needed some mass to work with, before I couldn't pack on an ounce to save my life.

    I was going for the Danny Glover look, but Arnold is another nice one.
