Want To Know The Simple Recipe For My Delicious DIY Mass Gainer Shake ? Read On....
In my article on How To Gain Weight As A Skinny Guy Without Getting Fat I explained how most mass gainer shakes consist of low quality carbs that will cause massive spikes to your insulin levels. This will most likely lead to greater fat gain and makes drinking them several times a day unhealthy.
Some supplement companies will refuse this claim by pointing to the low amount of sugar their product carries. In most cases, however, they simply use maltodextrin as a sugar subsitute. While maltodextrin is technically a complex carb, it is broken down very rapidly and has similiar effects on blood sugar and insulin levels.
So before I share with you my recipe for a cheap and healthy homemade mass gainer shake, let's talk about why you need one in the first place.
Why Do I Need A Mass Gainer Shake, Anyway?
A mass (or weight) gainer designed for people who have a hard time putting on weight. The typical hardgainer will feel like he or she can't gain any weight no matter how much they eat. While this might sound like heaven for people trying to lose weight, it actually sucks for people looking to build muscle mass.
For those people eating becomes a chore and sticking to their diet plan means hard work. If you fall into this category I'm gonna make your life a lot easier by showing you how to prepare a quality mass gainer shake. Back when I used to be skinny, I would drink one or two of these bad boys a day and trust me they worked!

It's up to you whether you want to use milk or water. I personally have a slight lactose intolerance, which is why I prefer to drink the shake with water. Feel free to also add ice or frozen berries (watch out for added sugars!).
