Hi. I've been a diabetic for 5 yrs now. I lost a lot of weight from it. I'm looking to start a body building program and need to gain weight. I've been searching for a weight gainer that is low carb but high calorie. I want to use the shakes with meals and as a snack. Can someone suggest a weight gainer like that? The ones I've seen have an enormous amount of carbs and I don't want to keep my sugars in control or else all my effort will be for nothing.
By the way, I've got an unusual form of diabetes called Cystic Fibrosis Diabetes. My diet is high calorie high fat. I'm not really limited to carbs but I want to know the gainers with the least amount of carbs as possible. My diet is being monitored by a nutritionist and she gave me recipes for shakes and stuff but I'm looking for something already in a powder that I can add to my shakes or just take alone. I need to gain about 25-30 lbs. As I was 160lbs but now 125 lbs. Thanks.
Thanks and I love this site!

In my honest opinon you don't need a mass gainer.
Just make your own with only a few ingredients that can be found in any grocery store that are cheap and very nutrient rich. You will save a lot of money.
To make this shake, simply add the following ingredients into a blender, and mix well:
1 cups of Whole Milk
2 tbsp of Peanut Butter
1 large Banana
1 scoop of Instant Oats or Ground Oats
2 scoops of your preferred whey protein powder
Blend everything together with some cubes of ice and you will get the best tasting shake you have ever tasted.
