On your behalf, I did some reasearch on "Weight Gainer 2200 Gold".
Compare this to Twinlab Mass Fuel:
One serving of WG 2200 Gold is 493 grams, for a total of 2200 calories.
One serving of Twinlab Mass fuel is 169 grams, for a total of 620 calories.
493 grams / 3 = 164 grams, which is comparable to the Twinlab serving size.
2200 calories divided by 3 = 733 calories.
OK, so it has 100 more calories. Now, let's compare the content:
MG 2200 protein = 74 g
Twinlab = 51 g
74 grams divided by 3 = a pathetic 24.7 grams!
Look at the sugar:
MG 2200 = 131 grams
Twinlab = 8 grams (!!!)
131 grams / 3 = 43 grams of sugar!
MG 2200 is composed of dextrose, maltodextrin, and FRUCTOSE. The fructose is the big problem here, it is a simple sugar that will eventually make you gain more fat if you have too much of it.
The Twinlab supplement is composed of maltodextrin mainly, which is a complex carbohydrate and is very beneficial.
There is a little bit of fat in the MG 2200 supplement as well.
The twinlab mass fuel also has arginine, glutamine, and creatine. All in all, I believe the Twinlab Mass fuel is superior to the GNC supplement. My advice is to finish off the GNC supplement or sell it to a friend, and pick up some Twinlab Mass fuel or Cytosport Cyto gainer.
Any supplement that claims over 1000 calories in a serving is either loaded up with sugar or a scam. They raise the serving size to make it appear as if it has more calories.

Well until I don't gain weight, I am sticking with what got me here in the first place.
If it aint broke, dont fix it.
The amount of protein in the GNC brand supplement is not good. Your weight gains will be mostly fat, trust me. Ditch it after you run out of it.

Err, I typed that all wrong.
But seriously, how much of this could be staying on my body and still be fat?
I am working 3-4 hours a day cardio, and atleast 30-60 minutes on the weights.
What kind of cardio? You burn 9 Calories per minute jogging. Times 270-360, that's close to one serving of the stuff.
How long you lift has little to do with it. Muscle just doesn't build that fast. If you could gain 1 pound of muscle per week, you'd gain 52 pounds per year. You know how many people would kill to grow muscle that fast?
Actually, if it's only been 4 days, then I think it's still all in the form of **** in your gut. Take a few Mega Dumps and you'll probably be back to normal.
thats minus **** weight. haha.
