    I've been using Cyto since I started my gain period (two weeks ago) and so far I've gained two pounds, a decent number. I tried the GNC Mass XXX but after a week of it I couldn't stomach it anymore; too sweet and too thick to take twice a day.

    Cyto Gainer mixes a whole lot better and is definately one of the better tasting. I'd recommend it for any serious gainers, though my opinion would weigh a whole lot more if I did, haha.

Cytogainer was the first one i tried, and it helped me go from 145 lbs. to 160 lbs. in about 3 months. I was not taking it as directed. I would only take 3 scoops after workout, and 3 scoops the morning following my workout. I did'nt want 52 grams of protein at once, i've read that a lot of protien at one sitting can wreak havoc on your liver.
    Heres a shake that i like to make after my workout: 4 scoops cytogainer, 1/2 cup oatmeal, 8 oz. lactaid lactose free milk, 1 tbsp. honey, 4 frozen strawberries, 1 bananna, 1/2 cup of ice, blend till smooth.
    I like it too because its cheap.

    And its low glycemic carbs
    anyways......

    The advanced MacrobolicT Nutrition profile in Up Your Mass provides the precise 45/35/20 ratio of macro nutrients (carbohydrates, protein, fat) your body needs to create tremendous gains in muscle size and strength. without added fat ! Whether you're a pro athlete who needs to pack on mass for an upcoming event, or a teenage hardgainer who has difficulty gaining weight, Up Your Mass can help you blast through previously unconquerable with traditional weight gainers. MHP's "Every Calorie Counts" credo is being proven by the many pro athletes who use Up Your Mass daily, including WWE Superstar/Olympic Gold Medalist, Kurt Angle, and America's Three Strongest Men - Steve Kirit, Phil Pfister, and Mark Philippi.

    Glycemix LGIT - Carbohydrates are the primary source of energy and are of vital importance to exercise performance. However, high glycemic carbs like sugars (Dextrose, Sucrose) can have a negative impact on performance and body composition. Glycemix LGI is a unique agglomerate of low glycemic carbohydrates (barley, oats and oat fiber), that provides sustained energy, improved glycogen replenishment and stable blood sugar levels.

    ProbolicT - This dynamic sustained release protein matrix (Supro soy protein isolate, whey concentrate, casein) provides a quick, medium and slow release of amino acids for both fast and long term nitrogen retention. The Probolic protein matrix supplies large amounts of Arginine, Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA's) and OVER 5 GRAMS of GLUTAMINE per serving critical for muscle building and recovery.

    Lipid Complex - Essential Fatty Acids are extremely important nutrients for health and performance. In fact, the right sources of fats may help improve hormone functions and provide energy. EFA's slow down the digestion of carbohydrates and proteins, helping to stabilize insulin release and improve nitrogen retention. Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's) provide a good source of energy and help preserve muscle glycogen. The Up Your MASS multi-functional Lipid Complex also contains CLA, which has been shown to increase lean mass.


    46g High Quality Sustained Release Protein
    Loaded with Glutamine & Branch Chain Amino Acids
    Low Glycemic Carbs
    Outrageous Taste

    I don't like any of them. My smoothy bar at gold's had a drink which has 3000 cals 80g protein and only 7g fat. It only cost $6.50 per and tastes great. Can't see the point in giving some company $7-$8 per serving for half the cals and protein and a fourth of the taste. Now if anyone knows of a weight gainer with these type stats let me know. Otherwise I'm going to start making my own.

    I'm guessing you meant 300 cals. Which is hardly worthy of being considered a weight gainer. Two scoops of your avg whey powder is gonna give you 230 cals and will only cost you 50 cents!

    At 3000 cals... given your other macros, that would be 654g of carbs and lets be honest here, thats just not possible in ONE shake. If it is, there is so much sugar in that thing it cant possibly be considered healthy.

    Sorry 2000 cals with 405g in carbs. Mostly fruit carbs whicj is a must after a high intensity workout. Need to replenish glycogen so protein isn't used for energy. But I'm sure you know that

    perfect waste of $6.50 in my opinion. Yes carbs are important after lifting, but replenishing glycogen is a 24 hour process, 405g of carbs at once is rediculous

    so what do we look for in a gainer? carbohydrates right? they are the main source of energy. sorry i don't know what calories mean, are they energy or bad?

    i know that most gainers suck because they use sugar as their main source of energy, that's something REALLY bad and will only make you fat.

    i found this gainer by reflex nutrition, what do you think?

    http://www.reflex-nutrition.com/spor...cument_5_2.php

    While other companies still use maltodextrin as the main source of carbohydrate for their weight gain formulas, Reflex Nutrition have taken the initiative and brought you a unique alternative.

    Organic Source of Carbohydrate

    Instant Mass is the first high quailty weight gainer to contain an exclusive blend of organic barley and oats. This organic source of carbohydrate provides a low glycemic source of energy along with naturally occurring vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre.

    52 Grams of Whey Protein and Micellar Casein.


    Organic
    Organic agriculture is a safe, sustainable farming system, producing healthy crops and livestock without damage to the environment.

    It avoids the use of artificial chemical fertilisers and pesticides on the land, relying instead on developing a healthy, fertile soil and growing a mixture of crops. In this way, the farm remains biologically balanced, with a wide variety of beneficial insects and other wildlife to act as natural predators for crop pests and a soil full of micro-organisms and earthworms to maintain its vitality.

    Organic is a term defined by law and all organic food production and processing is governed by a strict set of rules.


    i hope it works

    I like the fact that its organic, but its kinda ironic that it has nutrasweet in it, not that they have been proven bad or anyhting, but they arnt natural, and usually organic stuff is natural everything, no GMO(genetically modified etc...) just kinda ironic

    ya and im sure that 2 lbs is muscle

    All I said was it's maltodextrin; don't be fooled into thinking 300 calories of carbo gain is the same as 300 calories of oats

    im not trying to disagree with that in any way, im just stating for the purpose of the thread the main ingredients of one of the weight gainers discussed is basically what i take for a cheaper price.

    real food > all

    2lbs to me is 2 more lbs of enthusiasm to go out there and work that much harder to reach my goals.

    have a good night guys

    As an ecto, I've been using weight gainers every day for the last 3 years along with a solid diet.

    Cytogainer is my personal favorite; low fat and most importantly LOW SUGAR. Only drawback is its expensive.

    Prolab N Large 2 is reasonably priced and easy to find. A litte high on sugar but still acceptable.

    Still, I'd much rather just mix oats, whey, milk and olive oil. High in fiber (oats), healthy fats, very, very low in sugar and extremely cheap.

    All the URL's I list lead to my review of the product.

    My favorite:

    Cytosport, Cytogainer

    This is my favorite for the reasons of a solid profile (typical of a weight gainer), good flavoring, and a good price. Additionally, it does not have the tendency to make me feel full, which I have experienced some with other gainers.

    I also recommend...
    Universal Nutrition, Real Gains

    Real Gains has maybe a slight advantage profile-wise over Cytogainer, however their flavoring doesn't really keep up with Cytosport's! I would rank this number 2 overall

    Optimum Nutrition, Pro Complex Gainer

    Very smooth texture, this stuff is decent. The biggest drawback to this product is the price. I cannot recommend it, as I just don't find it cost-efficient. Find a good price for it, and it's pretty good!

    MRM, Massive Muscle Gainer

    This one is pretty good, and comes quite cheap for the amount you get. The drawback? It really fills me up the most out of all the gainers I've tried so far. This can be a problem, as it can give the tendency to want to cut out food after drinking it.
    I remember being relevant.

    I like the organic part myself plus it has a good amount of proteins although at the expense of low amounts of carbs (therefore lower calorie content compared to CytoGainer). I hate artificial sweeteners so I would think this is a little bitter or the sweetness will taste weird or leave a nasty aftertaste. Although this can be disguised by quality flavoring, ON's Pro Complex with Splenda tasted sickeningly sweet. Reflex has artificial sweeteners (sucralose, acelsulfame k) and 'flavourings' of which we don't know if that is aritificial or natural. Natural sweeteners include erythritol, xylitol, pure maple syrup, molasses, stevia, agave nectar, Rapadura (dehydrated cane sugar juice), Sucraisin (white grape juice), rice syrup, barley malt, date sugar, and raw unfiltered honey.

    I have tried stevia (the higher the stevioside and rebaudioside content, the sweeter it is). However, it has a bitter and liquorice-like after-taste, especially at high concentration. I bought 10 packets from Vitacost to try it but i'm not sure if I can ever get used to the taste. I read that the more rebaudioside in stevia, the less bitter aftertaste. I probably got a bad brand.
