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.

On your behalf, I did some reasearch on "Weight Gainer 2200 Gold".

http://www.gnc.com/productDetails.aspx?id=350478&lang=en

Compare this to Twinlab Mass Fuel:

http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/tl/mass.html

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.

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.

Thanks for the input, but I won't be switching anytime soon.
