    The bottle says that its only good for 10 servings (5 scoops) and each serving is either 830 calories with water or 1000 with skim milk.

    Now I wanna take half a serving a day so that this lasts me 20 days.
    So do you think I can see good gains in mass with 417 calories a day (With Milk) or 354 calories a day (With Water). I'm hoping im not cutting my self short by only taking half........but i figure I don't need 1000 calories a day plus what I'm eating.

    if I was you I would only take the gainer after a workout and try to keep that shit around 300 calories and 30 grams of protein

    i almost garauntee you if you kill down 500-800 calories at a sitting of weight gainer you'll waste it all away by taking a massive shit.. guraunteed.

    even if you ate some type of casein protein, or cottege cheese or a few glasses of milk or even a shake before bed.. think about it, you're about to go 8-10 hours without food or any nourishment.

    that's the perfect time for your body to start using muscle for energy.

    it seems stupid, but seriously man.. it's perfect to wake up, hit that shake and keep your body constantly anabolic, and go back to sleep.

    and this isn't somthing I just made up, I've also read a lot of information from trainers suggesting the same thing. only their midnight mixtures contained more than just protein in it.. i keep it simple.

    when you wake up isn't your stomach growling and you're hungry as fuck??? man, I sure am... this way I keep on a constant intake of food all day, keep my metabolism up.

    lol.. he doesn't know shit then. only if you're a nutcase about the gainer.. use the shit like a protein shake and you'll be fine.. don't live and die by weight gainer, you should be eating 5-7 times a day in smaller meals and keeping your metabolism up.

    if you're keepig the calories to a minimum per serving with the gainer.. like I said about 300 AFTER workout.. I doin't see why you would gain much fat. keep the post-workout shake to about 30 grams of protein or so. I'm assuming you weigh about 180+.

    and you're gonna get some fat anyways, if you're trying to BULK aka GAIN WEIGHT. it's not possible to bulk + get leaner at the same time in quantity, unless you're using drugs.

    I don't even use just a basic whey protein... I honestly only use a gainer as my protein supplement... just use it wisely.

    I can't believe I miss this thread.

    Most weight Gainer is shit and loaded with sugar. (That's why the dude said you will gain fat)

    You're better off making your own.

    Yeah you can find some gainers low in sugar, gotta watch em though because there are some that have a huge amount. 6 grams isn't bad.

    It also depends if your getting your moneys worth.

    For some people it doesn't really matter because they can afford it, but most people can't really drop 200 a month on supps like Snikka.

    Not really, you must be fat kiddo.

    Just a tip:
    Don't eat carbs before you go to bed, because all that stored energy is just turn it fat deposits and try to consume some casein protein. Found in milk and cottage cheese. its a slow digesting protein so your body has something to work with while your sleeping.

    I drank "muscle milk" (cookies n' cream!) last night, I woke up and I could tell the casein worked because I wasnt as hungry as I usually am waking up.

    Well I work out at 7:30
    So I eat whenever I finish which is about at 9.
    I might have to start eating at 5 or something but I have a crazy tight shedule and I used to eat before I worked out but I got cramps.

    muscle milk is paper fam, how much it cost you?
