    Best value for money weight gainer?

    Looking for a weight gainer which people would consider best value for money.

    I can get 10kg of MAX'S supersize (50g protein - 750cals) for $180 which is so far the best value I can find so far.

    However, one serving is three 40g scoops, so drinking 2 shakes a day = about 6-8 weeks worth....which is what I get out of 4kg of pure whey protein.

    Any suggestions?

    Buy Oats, protein powder, Peanut butter and make your own.

    2. You save tons money.
    3. Gainers are pointless, eat real food.

    homemade gainers are an awesome option, but if time is your enemy, Beast has a new gainer coming out called Gargantua so keep your eyes peeled for that one

    very nice man.

    other easy additions:

    fruit, EVOO, EVCO..

    too easy & convenient to make your own shake, without having to resort to pre-made, over-priced, sub-par profiles..

    This. Gainers are ok if you have the money to spend and want the convenience. But I just eat my oats with my protein shake in the morning. If I need want more calories, I'll eat some peanut butter. Just takes about 10 extra minutes and saves you a lot of $.

    Also, eat more REAL food. If you're considering drinking two gainer shakes a day, you're probably not eating enough chicken/rice/steak/fish/etc.

    The thing is, I am that lazy that I will happily pay extra for the convenience of having it all in one powder...especially because half of my shake consumption is at uni or work....I cannot foresee oats and peanut butter mixing well just from shaking my little wire ball in my shaker

    Screw that. Spend your money on real food. I'd take the instant brown rice and chicken I just ate over some sh*tty weight gainer powder any day.

    It takes some trial and error, but I've mixed that combo many times in my Blender Bottle.
