FAQ (Frequently asked questions) :


1. What are weight gainers ?

Weight gainers are a high calorie powder that you can mix in virtually any beverage you want. Typically they are high in protein, low to moderate in fat with a good amount of their calories coming from carbohydrates.


2. What are the Benefits of Weight Gainers ?

The thing is, weight gains can serve a benefit to certain people, typically any one with a very high metabolism, specifically high school / college athletes trying to gain weight for sports, although they can also be helpful for any athlete who can't gain weight. Now, when I say “weight” I mean muscle but if misused, you can easily add fat – a lot of fat – from a weight gainer. Now, gaining weight is more complicated then just simply adding a shake or two to your diet. This is how most people do it and often I hear the “it doesn't work” compliant as a result. The truth is, weight gainers do work – they can't not work, as long as you know how many extra calories you require per day over and above maintenance levels to gain weight. You use energy no matter what you're doing, even when sleeping.


3. How to Gain Weight Quickly and Safely ?

If you're training regularly, putting on weight isn't always easy. It requires special attention to your diet and supplement routine to help you add the right kind of weight (increased muscle and reduced fat). If you're looking to step up your routine, weight gainers can help you put on the extra pounds you're after. If you're looking to bulk up, there's a science to adding weight in a healthy way. If your goal is to gain muscle and not fat, it's essential to eat a well-rounded, high-calorie diet that's also high in nutrient-dense ingredients. Foods that contain healthy fats, like omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, include avocados, nuts, seeds and cold water fish (anchovies, sardines, mussels and oysters). You should also look for foods that are high in fiber and protein, like dried fruit, granola and whole grain bread topped with nut butter. Adding these foods promotes healthy nutrition as well as weight gain. Even if you're eating properly, diet and exercise may not be enough to get you the results you want. There are a variety of ingredients to look for in a supplement to help you bulk up, so be sure to read labels.

The best ones to check for when shopping for a weight gainer include:

 Creatine: Creatine is a metabolite that helps create lean muscle while also giving you more energy to perform a greater number of repetitions while working out. Creatine commonly comes in powder form and can be mixed in with your favorite juice or sports drink. Mixing it with grape juice may improve its effectiveness since grape juice is known to help carry creatine to your muscles. However you decide to take it, stick to about 20 g per day, divided into four to five separate servings.

 Oils: An essential fatty acid that's packed with healthy calories, flax seed oil will help your body grow. This ingredient is also great for energy production and strengthening the immune system. Take 1 to 2 tablespoons per day, preferably after exercise or before bed, to help build and rejuvenate your muscles during sleep. Fish oil is another way to obtain essential fatty acids that promote the right type of weight gain. Fish oil comes in liquid form or capsules and also supports proper cognitive function and cardiovascular health. Stick to 3 g daily.

 Protein: Protein is another popular ingredient used to gain weight in the form of lean muscle mass. Proteins such as whey casein (milk), soy and egg whites are often available in powder forms to be added to shakes, drinks and other foods. They also help the muscles recover properly after exercise so you can be ready to train again sooner.

 Amino Acids: One of the building blocks of protein found is amino acids. The harder you train, the more amino acids you may need to add to your diet. Glutamine is a popular choice. Also, branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) help the body burn more fat and build lean muscle mass, while also helping to increase energy. BCAAs are so effective because they're absorbed right into the muscle tissue. You can find them in protein powders or take them in capsule form after a workout or before bed.


4. Should I use a weight gainer ?

Maybe... It depends on a lot of things. Are you looking at the weight gainer as a shortcut, a quick fix? The first question you should ask yourself is, “Is my diet in order?” In other words, are you getting enough calories from whole foods? Food is anabolic. Food is your first line of defense. If you don’t have your meals in order, then supplements just aren’t going to work as effectively. Remember, supplements are just that—supplements. A weight gaining supplement is not meant to be a substitute for food. It should “supplement” your existing food/meal plan.


5. So then who should use a weight gainer ?

Again, this assumes your diet is in order… Basically, you can use a weight gainer if you’re looking to add extra calories to your diet. It might be a convenience issue—it’s a lot easier to mix up a pre-made shake than prepare a full meal. Or, it might be that you have a small appetite. A solid weight gainer, because it digests quickly and efficiently (improved “gastric emptying”), will make it possible to eat another meal without feeling overly “full”. Food like oatmeal and beef, for example, take a while to digest. If you’ve already got food digesting in your stomach, you can see how hard it would be to eat another meal.

6. What should one look for in a weight gainer ?

A weight gainer should provide a nutritionally dense blend of the core macronutrients (i.e., protein, carbohydrates and essential fats). Second, it should be low in simple sugars and high in complex carbohydrates. Fat content should also not be overlooked since added essential fats help to increase the calories of each shake and aid in natural hormone production.

7. When is the right time to use a weight gainer ?

There really is no “right” time. Depending on your goals, a weight gainer can be taken first thing in the morning, between meals, post workout or before bed. Again, you should tailor it to your needs and what you’re trying to accomplish. There is no “one size fits all” approach.

8. How often should I use a weight gainer ?

This once again depends on your goals. Remember, a weight gainer is to be used to supplement the calories you are already getting from a balanced, bodybuilding diet consisting of numerous daily whole food feedings. Depending on your diet and particular goals , anywhere from one to three times daily can lead to marked improvements. Experimenting is the key.

9. What can I mix in with these supplements ?

Water / milk / juice . If you need some extra calories, skim milk does nicely. If you’re looking for slightly more calories, try whole milk.
