    Quality mass gainer recommendations

    Brothers,

    A friend of mine relatively new to bodybuilding and proper diet has appetite issues so he asked me to recommend a quality weight/mass gainer. Im in the dark and am doing a little homework but any advice/opinions/recommendations re a high quality, nutritionally solid mass gainer based on personal experience or word of mouth would be a welcome push in the right direction. Thanks in advance..

    I really liked quickmass by allmax. Mixes well and had decent flavor.

    I liked the hyperbolic mass gainer from Gnc, its usually on sale for half of what the others go for.

    Vanilla is the better of the bunch

    I was making my own at the beginning of this cycle too.
    2 scoops whey protein isolate
    1/2 cup rolled oats
    1/2 cup peanut butter
    powder cinnamon for flavor
    ice
    top off with milk to make a thick shake

    I'd take this before bed. Has almost 1,000 cals. I was gaining like a mofo. Unfortunately it gave me gorilla gut, and due to my physical condition, back aches also. So I had to drop this. But damn! With this, i was at 4000cals/day and gaining 2 or 3 lbs a week.

    My point is that there really is no need for the commercial mass gainers, unless you don't give a shit about the cash in your pocket

    Re: Quality mass gainer recommendations

    Making your own is the best way.
    But if you want something quick and simple
    Stick with your high quality protein I like
    Isoflex by allmax. Then add waxy maze or carbo
    Powder.
    Weight gainers nothing more than low quality protein
    And carbs. It's expensive. You might get 20 servings out of a 5lb container
    Stick to a high quality protein and just ad your own carbs. It's much cheaper
    And you'll get better results.

    For those making their own:

    What brand whey are you using and where do you get it from?
