I need help gaining weight

Ok so i'm 21 years old 5'10 and weight around 145lbs. I just bought 100% Whey Protein Chocolate caremel flavor. My goal is to get around 175lbs. I don't really work out but i have some weights in my house that i can bench. Do you guys think this is enough? Just let me know any advice is welcome.

Re: I need help gaining weight

I can, I have the same problem. With me I put on weight by increasing my portions daily and drinking weight gain shakes, such as Reflex Instant Mass.

However, you must remember that results can be affected by your genetics and age. Things take time.

There is no point drinking shakes if you aren't going to work out. Forget the protein unless you wanna go for muscle, get Instant Mass (mass gaining shakes) to put on weight.

Good luck.

Re: I need help gaining weight

In a nutshell...

"Reflex Instant Mass is a high calorie meal replacement powder. It contains high levels of protein and carbohydrates with low levels of fats. The carbohydrates are provided by barley and oats, giving it a very low glycemic index, to minimise fat gain.

Ideal when gaining weight, as a recovery drink, or during periods of increased training intensity or duration."

Just like shakes, you take one after your workout but you also take them twice a day, say one with your breakfast and one between your lunch and evening meal. Stop 3 meals a day and do 6 smaller meals, for example...

Meal 1. Breakfast
Meal 2. Mass gainer shake + Banana
Meal 3. Smaller Lunch
Meal 4. Mass gainer shake + banana
Meal 5. Smaller Dinner
Meal 6. Snack.

You may find it's too much for you, so you can try to edit the meal layout to suit you.

[DELETED] I recommend Reflex as I've used it, it tastes like protein shakes and it gives good results.

No problem, good luck.

If you can't find Reflex instant mass go into a specialist sports store and ask for some reputable instant mass.

Re: I need help gaining weight

Hey guys,
I hit 6 foot at age 12 and weighed 120 pounds...wanna talk skinny!: I felt like a total freak in 6th grade.

I grew 2 more inches in the next couple years and ordered my Weider weights at 15...and never looked back.

Re: I need help gaining weight

Yes, remember to train minimum 3 times per week in order to see results.

You cannot simply take more food and mass gainer without training or you won't get any results.

Hmmm interesting. Is Gainers Fuel a protein shake? And how much did you drink per day. Thanks
