    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.
    The above statement/post does not represent the opinions of anyone in real life. This is the internet. Not real life. Anyone who cannot grasp the difference between the two lacks the basic intelligence necessary for survival and should not be allowed to form opinions.
