Weight Gainers
 
wtf is up with weight gainers and having so few servings per container. i've been looking at products like optimum nutrition gainer: Pro Complex Gainer - Get Big, Not Fat! - On Sale Now! | Muscle & Strength and others of the sort but they're all not worth it in my estimation if there's only 14 servings per container. Does anyone know of any quality weight gainers for a reasonable price that will last me more than 2 weeks?

Good luck. its about the $ per serving that supp companies are trying to stick you with

I like to see what gainer will give me the most cals. for my money. I also take into account other nutrient values but I'm mostly concerned about how many cals I get for my buck.

why not go the milk route?

strkout35 02-04-2010 04:08 PM

i try to get as much milk as possible but sometimes its tough so i was just thinking about cheating a bit by adding some weight gainer, who knows just a thought. but all these products piss me off haha
