Default kinda feel like a douche bag...

i was always an eat eat and eat kind as far as diet goes while lifting. I sat down and did some math after some enlightening reading and found out that all of my past weight gains were pure luck... my calorie intake could vary as much as 600-1200 calories from day to day.. but wow i kinda feel like an idiot... but i feel better... i always thought i was just a hard gainer... not that even tho i ate my ass off i still just wasn't getting what i needed.

but ok... i've said i am a college student dorms and all that... i live in the dorms at the moment and eat cafeteria food... only problem there is i can explode before i get what i need... i know... i lost 4 pounds the first two weeks of this session
but any body have any ideas on weight gainers with the best ratio of cheap to effective?

found one on the store link that's pretty good... just gotta make every dime count for now...

I dont know if you can get a blender and mini fridge in your room but, my favorite homemade weight gainer is

16oz milk
4 tbsps peanut butter
2 scoops whey protein (vanilla)
1-2 bananas

Cheaper than anything you can get at stores but you will need a mini fridge and blender. Fell free to add any fruit you want or ice depeding on the texture you're going for.

btw it's 1000+ cals

Well, I don't know about recently but last year I ordered a bunch of IDS smart gainer and Muscle Juice, the former being my preference in taste, and additives. There are a few things you can be doing if your not already, you dining hall might have hard boiled eggs on a salad line or something of the sort which is always good. Most of the food there, especially the meats are essentially sodden with oil/fats and makes for a pretty anabolic meal. Whole milk, with every meal. My dining halls place PB out with the rest of the condiments in gigantic tubs. I mean, there's no way that ****s natural, but hell, why turn down free calories.

My meal plan seems to be a tad different then yours, we just use a debit system and buy whatever foods/sides we want here... my all time guilty pleasure though is cheese, I gnaw that **** off the block. Actually I've got some in my hand right now as a matter of fact. Besides for pb, if your really really really desperate for calories you can try dairy cream, or condensed milk in your protein shakes (but you might as well be drinking olive oil fyi). Also I'd pick up some dextrose (I think that the right sugar, not 100% though) from you super market and through that stuff in. And CMKs recipe looked good, I've made drinks like that before - I think they have protein shakers that double as blenders if you've got some change to spare.

Bump.

I don't know much about weight gainers. But if you can get some almonds, peanut butter (goes great as a healthy snack with dark chocolate), whole milk it can help.

Are you allowed to get single burners?

Walmart.com: Aroma Single-Burner Portable Electric Range Hot Plate: Appliances

I had something like this and would make Ramen or mac and cheese in the dorm for extra, cheat calories.

I go with guv'nor Arnold's suggestion - snack on peanust whole day long - they have a nice macro profile. And if you need to check the efficacy of peanuts, just google up Bill "Peanuts" West.
