Weight and mass gainers are expensive. Why not make your own for a fraction of the cost? It will be better than what you get at the store.
Make Your Own Weight Gainer
Let me say I’m not a big fan of weight gainers. Too often people equate gaining weight with gaining muscle, which is simply not true. If it was, then overweight me should have been humongously muscular. Which I clearly wasn’t.
That being said, I once was a very skinny teenager myself and I know how hard it is to gain weight during that phase. This is where a weight gainer can help, but you don’t need to buy them for lots of money. Make your own, which will actually be better:
The Recipe In Writing
As linked in the video, here is the recipe in writing:
- 1 cup (80 g) rolled oats
- 1 cup (240 ml) low-fat milk
- 30 g whey protein powder
Put all ingredients into a blender and, well, blend. If you find the result too thick, add a little water.
Because tables always look so neat and orderly, here again also are the nutritional values compared to the popular commercial product:

|75 g carbohydrates||71 g carbohydrates|

Combine Weight Gainers With The Right Workout
Once more: weight and mass gainers make you gain weight, not muscle per se. To gain weight and muscle, you also have to work out. If you are just starting on that road, this is the plan you should follow. Also check out my special list with workout tips for skinny guys.
