    If you don't have the genetics then yes you need to use suppliments that help you put on mass. Yes they can make you fat if you don't stick to a workout regime

    I'm not a fan of mass gainers. Mainly because it has a bunch of hard to digest protein sources. Not good for lactose intolerant people. icon_lol.gif

    For extra calories, I just add fruits to my post workout shake. Also, I have a light snack an hour or so before my workouts.

    It's very possible to gain muscle mass without making yourself fat. icon_biggrin.gif

    As someone who probably too heavily relies on it, I can say you don't NEED it if you get your calories and protein in other ways.

    However, if you're trying to hold down an all day job and school this is simply not feasible because you can't sit down to 3 1,000 calorie meals every day. There just isn't enough time. Use it but don't become reliant because supplements can ravage your organs and bodily functions.

    Fat wise - if you're bulking you'll gain fat. That's just the nature of the game. You gain more then you want and then later cut the fat.

    Both. Hopefully you'll be sticking to a rigorous routine for gaining mass and getting in other sources of protein.

    Like I said, fat gain in mass gain is inevitable.

    I ate about 3200 calories yesterday and 700 of that was from a mass gainer. Don't worry about it, as long you gain about 1-2/week and hit your PRs on gym days you'll be fine.

    A lot of people don't know what their calorie intake should be so they just BS their meal choices daily

    I used gainers for years while maintaining a very low body fat. Gainers are a convenience and can be used, but they are not the best option if you want plenty of calories to maximize your anabolic potential while minimizing fat gain.

    Find a good sports dietitian. He will make a diet for you. For your schedule, for your budget, for your taste. People in this forum can give you general guidelines at best. If you want something truly specific and useful to you, you will need professional assistance.

    supposing you're not being satirical...
    -judging by your age, height, and weight, you're going to get supper fat if you are not working out 6 hours a day or one hour with a highly physical job.
    so
    NO
    you don't need it.

    Supplements are ok but not Mass Gainer. That stuff just makes you fat. I was a skinny, hard gainer for years. I tried Mass Gainer and that stuff made me look bad. Just stick to good old fashioned diet, eat more throughout the day, take protein and creatine and u should be ok

    Taking advantage of this thread (so I don't make another one)

    I just got the real mass from on. I gain weight really really hardly. I also don't have much time to eat because I work/study in college. I go to the gym 6 days/week at least 1 15. Rarely miss it.

    Planning on taking one scoop in the morning and 1 whenever I get back from gym. That would make the recommended serving.

    Go ahead or get only 1 per day? Or less?

    I weight 130 and my goal is 150 but I, as well, don't want to get fat. Never had a big stomach and i don't plan on doing so.

    Suggestions? Comments?

    One serving before your workout. And another one after.

    You don't need mass gainer per se, as you can get your macros from normal food as well, it's just a convenient source

    I'm not lactose intolerant, but some of those heavy protein shakes would MAKE me lactose intolerant. I prefer to stick with the no more than 200-300 calories per shake.

    Besides, anyone see the price on those things? It's like $50 for 10 servings.

    I use a mass twice a day, before breakfast and post workout. My caloric need is so high, I can't eat enough food to meet it. The two servings of mass gainer add 1400 calories to my diet.
