    I'm young, dumb and need help!

    I'm 16 years old, weigh 205 pounds, and I'm 6"3.
    I workout 3-5 times a week for an hour to two.
    I bought ISO Mass Xtreme Gainer*
    And I want to know what kind of results I should expect with that?
    Will it make me fat?
    Build muscle?
    Size?
    I just want to be able to know what I'm talking about if someone at the gym brings it up and you veterans know your supplements!

    I think the effects all depend on your diet. If this is part of your daily macro's then you will need it everyday. If you have other whole foods that you get your protein/carbs/fat from on other days then I would say to just have the gainer on the days you lift arms. This way the extra protein/carbs/calories/fat will go to your arms. If you use it too much, however, it will definitely add some fat. The extra carbs and protein will end up turning to fat anyways. I think it all depends on what diet you have and any other supplements you are using. It's difficult to try and add mass without adding any fat. Personally I believe in bulking phases and cutting phases to try and build as much muscle as possible and then get rid of the fat that came with it afterwards.

    You're 16.

    Food.

    No need to waste [your parent's] money on supplements...Especially when you can just make gainers at home on your own.

    Ideally all you should need is protein, multi, and 'potentially' creatine at your age. You still have lots of room to grow from just eating food as you are still only 16.

    A caloric surplus will make you gain weight. A caloric deficit will make you lose weight. A good number of calories when bulking or cutting is either + or minus 500 depending on what your goal is. If you hit on average over 1,500 calories higher than what you what you would burn for a good amount of time, you will put on more fat, quite a bit actually. Although, you are pretty young and I am assuming that you haven't been training that long, so you wouldn't put on nearly as much fat in that scenerio as I would at my age and length of training.

    Weight gain will, typically, result from a caloric surplus. Focus on improving your diet and allow that to dictate what your body does.

    As for a weight gainer, make your own. YOU control the macronutrients. They are also delicious, affordable, and convenient. Consider adding the following ingredients: milk, peanut / almond butter, olive oil [optional; flavorless], liquid egg whites [optional; flavorless], banana, berries [strawberry, blueberry, etc.], yogurt / ice cream, oats, etc. Things like cinnamon and vanilla extract will add flavor, as well.

    I follow this recipe:

    2 Cups Skim Milk
    1/2 Cup Oats [Grind in coffee grinder]
    1 Banana
    2 Tablespoons Natural Almond Butter
    4 Ice Cubes
    1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt

    Blend. Top with cinnamon.

    As for the other supplements, take them back - there is no need for them. Get yourself a quality, affordable multivitamin and fish oil supplement. There is no need for anything else.
