Does anyone have any recommendations for lactose free weight gainers? I have major stomach issues revolving mainly around gas and sometimes diarrhea. I'm going to be getting a food allergy test to determine what food(s) might actually be causing my stomach disruptions.
So does anyone have any experience with weight gainers (especially lactose free ones) that give or don't give you gas so I know what to avoid and what to get. Ive been taking Muscle Juice and I believe that is one thing that has been giving me a lot of gas and frequent bathroom visits.
Ive been looking into Cyto Gainer, ON Pro-Complex Gainer, Universal Real Gains, and BSN True Mass. Anyone have any opinions on those in the way of lactose/ no lactose, ingredients, and how its worked for them?
I really want to get rid of this gas problem and hopefully find a good weight gainer...and protein supplement for that matter.

I know, it's shocking and all... but you could buy any protein powder you like (an isolate which is lactose free) and then add malto to it (a product like Carbo gain for example) and you have a gainer which uses your protein of choice and costs a heck of a lot less than a pre-made one.
All those ones you named have whey concentrate I believe.Latest Reviews:

Actually Ill look into that, that hasnt crossed my mind. Ive been reading the Best Weight Gainer forum topic and have come across some posts with people mentioning that Cytogainer and Universal Real Gains are lactose free. Is that true? Im sick of always having so much gas, even when I dont have a weight gainer.

Just asking to see if anyone out there lactose intolerant has found any success with any weight gainers/ proteins and that it didnt give them any stomach issues.
Any other suggestions from anyone? Appreciate all comments so far =)

Well if I can gather some extra money for food and a blender I might end up making my own seeing as how that could be more convenient by controlling whats in your drink. Sounds like a better option.
Thanks for those suggestions eldawg, terminator and picketts!
Any other opinions? =)

Weight Gainer Bars
Take about a half a tub (500grams) of pitted dates and add about 300 to 500ml of smooth peanut butter, 3 or 4 scoops of your favourite protein powder (I use sun warrior all vegan protein - easier to digest, no lactose, gluten free, etc)). Also, I add about 1/4 cup of goji berries, 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, and 1/2 cup of hemp hearts. I mush it all together with my hands and depending on the protein powder it might be very flaky or fall apart on you, just add more of the peanut butter up to the 500ml or add a few tbsp of water until it turns into a good mold-able dry paste. Then take a 9x9 pyrex glass pan and push it down so that it's all flat, cut into 10 bars. Ea. bar is smaller than a chocolate bar and approximately 500 calories. You can add things like chocolate chips or coconut flakes for flavour or apple sauce (instead of water), great recipe that you can play with once you know what consistency that you're looking for.

There are not to many lactose free, pre-made weight gainers on the market that I am aware of..
