It's garbage, as are all weight gainer supps I think.

+1. If you look at their content and serving sizes, they really don't have much more calories per gram than plain whey protein, they just have massive serving sizes and are cheaper. "1250kcals per serving!" is only impressive until you realise the serving size is ten times larger than a standard serving of whey; as if anyone who actually needs weight gain so bad could possibly consume that much in a single sitting.

I'll admit I fell for the ON Serious Mass stuff a while back. I was excited about getting 1500 calories in one serving....until I saw the size of those scoops you are exactly right heh.

There are quality "weight gainers" out there. They are basically a meal replacement. The primary difference between this and a whey protein is that whey protein contains virtually no carbohydrates - which is not optimal for weight gain. A quality weight gainer will have both protein and carbohydrates, with very little sugar. The product below is what I use as a high calorie meal replacement when I don't have time to prepare a meal.

Pre-Workout: DS Craze.
It's some pretty wild stuff, I even like it better than Jack3d.
I think after this runs out, I think I will just switch back to black coffee. I keep getting way too dehydrated off the pre-workout stuff.

ON Whey
One-A-Day ProEdge (Sucks, will pick up some animal paks, orange triads, or now adam sometime soon)
ON Fish Oil, Costco Fish oil.
And I have some ON Creatine but I don't take it. Don't know how I feel about creatine yet.
