i've recently made a change between weight gainers and also had to make a switch from using milk to water as a result of the consistency being too thick. my question is, knowing that milk will add more calories to the weight gainer, will this result in a loss of body mass?? i feel like i may have lost some mass in the process but not much or quite sure why.

1) Don't BUY weight gainers. Make your own. Whey + Casein + Milk + PB + Oats + Bananas + Yogurt + yaddayah.
2) Try mixing both water and milk. The added protein and cals of milk is definitely beneficial. But if you use water, you'll digest the shake faster and allow yourself to eat more/whole foods sooner.
