    Hi I'm just wondering I just started using GNC health products as the moment. They have lots of protein builders and weight gain supplements I really need to gain weight. But I'm not sure if it can help me since my metabolism is so fast. No matter how much I eat or gain I easily burn it.

    I worked at a graveyard shift in this telemarketing company and I go to school in the afternoon. I know that it affects my body a lot but what can I do I'm living a harsh lifestyle. Need to earn to support my studies and need to finish school at the same time.

    well it says you only lift 1 time a week. so you might want to start lifting more often. Don't buy the properformance stuff buy the cytosport stuff (muscle milk or cytogainer) they sell it at gnc.

    Just on GNC, I've found their markups are just unreal. I use Isopure protein powder, and at GNC the 3lb jars are "on sale" for $52.49 on their website right now, but at anyplace else, like a1nutrition.com, where I get mine from, they're $29.99. That's kind of a crazy difference.

    It's worth looking around at other sites for supplements rather than just fork it over to GNC. Even with the GNC gold card, you're still paying 50% more than you have to. Easily.

    GNC is an absolute rip-off. As mentioned, you are far better off buying your supplements online. Their markups on virtually all their products are unreal. I learned my lesson about 5 years ago and haven't shopped there since. Would suggest you do the same!

    W0w thanks for the suggestions. But the problem is I don't have visa or credit card yet to use on purchasing online. I don't have stable job yet so applying for a credit card is not advisable for me at the moment. But I'll do keep in mind the suggestions you gave me...

    I'll first deplete my GNC products before looking for new one I'll try those products you suggested. Beside I'm using GNC since I have a friend who uses it as well he's just supplying me with a few stuff since he heard i wanted to gain weight fast despite my metabolism.

    Most banks also offer a "gift card" of sorts that you pay for with cash and can use like a pre-paid Visa card. You may want to look into that as well.

    Personally I get almost everything at gnc mainly for the fact that it's the closest place to me, there's a vitamin world in hte mall that's like 45 minutes away but if i'm going to go there or buy it online after the gas or shipping I may as well just get it at gnc with my gold card. Plus my local gnc is a small one cause it's a small area, they don't do a whole lot of business so actually a lot of stuff is marked DOWN not up.. There is one in that mall that I mentioned too but their stuff is always more expensive.

    If you have a checking account (and seriously, everyone should) you can have a debit card that you can purchase reasonably priced supplements online.

    And to join in with the choir, GNC is an amazing rip off.

    Totally agree. They are overpriced and a lot of hype at GNC. Their guys work on commission so you really cant trust what they are suggesting. I pay 80 for 10LBS of protein. This amount there would probably cost 150. A good google search will find you some great deals on protein. Should change their name to SMH instead of GNC for "screw me hard". You can sometimes (in a blue moon) find a box of protein bars on GNC's clearance table for $5 but that is all they are good for.
