Recently I've been doing some research on the idea of a weight gainer.
I'm a bit of a hardgainer. I definitely see my body changing a lot, but my actual weight just doesn't seem to budge very much. I'm very proud of my gains since I started working out, and I see and feel visual evidence of my progress, but I just want to see that damn number on the scale change!
I'm not the biggest eater in the world. I definitely don't under eat, but I just don't have the biggest stomach. The internet tells me weight gainers are a great solution to this problem, but.. when I go to my local supplement store, first of all I'm not even sure they have weight gainers, but more importantly, the guys there always tell me not to use them. They throw a bunch of reasons at me but the biggest one seems to be the concern that the user of a weight gainer is likely to just get fat. I definitely don't want that.
I try very hard to stick to my 5 - 6 days per week working out, so I really think that this sufficient lifting + the fact that I can't eat a huge amount will yield good gains with a weight gainer.
I just definitely don't want to go back to being flabby though, so I'm nervous to try one. It got a little intimidating walking into the supplement store looking for weight gainers when all I see are bottles of weight burners!
SECOND question: Do weight gainers come in a pill form? I'd really prefer not to have a powder.
If you can provide me with a link of where to buy one online (providing you think I should take weight gainers) then that'd be awesome.
