    Now Carbo-Gain / Maltodextrin weight gain?

    I am trying not to eat like complete crap as I do a bulk, but I am realizing it is VERY hard to actually gain decent weight while eating decent. Getting my 200g protein each day isn't that difficult especially with some whey isolate and/or protein bars on the side, but I have only gained like 2-5lbs (depending on when i step on the scale) in the last 2 weeks. My lifts are still rising, but feel like I need to be putting weight on a bit quicker.

    I have like 1/2 to 3/4 tub of Carbo-Gain I got last year that I have ONLY used as a PWO drink. usually mix 1/2 cup in water and add 1 scoop whey protein for my PWO drink.

    If I am going to be drinking my protein shakes at various times during the day, should I just start adding 1/2 cup of carbo-gain to it, instead of the protein alone, just for energy and weight gaining reasons?

    Should I be taking any carbo-gain Pre-lifting as well?

    thx

    2-5 pounds gain sounds pretty normal for lean muscle development in the 2 week time period. I think if you put on anymore than that per week, you'd be getting some fat too?

    that is encouraging to hear then. I can never tell what my real weight is LOL, usually I weight myself in the morning. But I might be 173 in the morning, and 179 at night.

    But I did start things off closer to 170, so I know if I am hovering between 173-175 its a 2-5lb weight gain.

    But I still might throw 200-300 calories of carbo-gain at my system during the day, probably can't hurt especially on lifting days.

    This is quite normal. Your weight varies through the day as your fluid balance & the amount of food in your gut changes. First thing in the morning - after you've been to the bog - will give you the most reliable baseline. Disregard any other scale reading.

    2-5 lbs of LEAN muscle gain? In 2 weeks??!? Really?

    Disagree.

    More like 0.25-0.5lbs... Rest is water/fat.
