Switching mass gainers
 
I am switching from your basic 800-1000 cal carb heavy mass gainer because I am running out and haven't seen the gains I am wanting. My idea is too do 90-100g of protien and a TON of fat.

Thoughts (for post workout):
3 scoops of protien (30g each)
heavy whipping cream
1 cup of almonds (almost pure fat)
1/4-1/2 cup of oats

1st question: what are the effects of massively decreasing carbs and increasing fat short term/till adjusted (I plan on doing re-feeds twice a week)

2nd question: what else can I add to this fatty deliciousness that I will be blending

I hear coconut oil is great to put in shakes to add calories, i like to put honey in mine.

Intrested in what responces this thread gets as i am on a low carb diet and im getting my energy ( healthy fats) from mainly fish/eggs atm, would be nice to find some more sources.

Question 1... You will drop water even if eating the same. You will also feel like blah for 3 days.

Question 2...Melted dark chocolate, fruit. My top 2.

I also wrote an article with 10 weight gainer shake recipes:

You'll feel pretty lethargic at first, but like BTB said it'll pass in a couple days. Quicker if you really pound down the fats and restrict the carbs, forcing your body to go through a metabolic shift. But the twice weekly carb re-feeds might make that difficult. You could always just have one really big carb re-feed on like Wednesday (if you train on Wednesdays) post workout. Then the other one could be all day Sunday. That's something that works for me really well.

Dark chocolate, macadamia nut oil (olive oil works well too), avocados, peanut butter, regular butter if you're feeling feisty. Might as well eat a block of cheese too if you like cheese.

LOL that is the best advice I have ever gotten in my life. What if I dip bacon in cheese. Now that is a plan

Today was my first day trying out the new shake. This week I'm still using 2 scoops of carb mass gainer (down from 4) and adding almonds and about 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream... It is so creamy and tasty I kinda wanna forcibly funnel it down a vegan throat to show them what they are missing. It is all sorts of wonderful
