Question Weight gainer or protein?

The other day I had the choice of getting "wheygainer" or "whey-protein"......I chose the "whey-Gainer" because it seemed to have more "stuff"... Example---Protien/Energy/etc.
The thing was that the gainer and the protein were about the same price. Why is that??

They have different purposes. Gainers are usually high in carbs, and are generally used by hard gainers or someone in a bulking phase.
look at the labels and determine which best suits your calorie/macros neeeds.

get a high quality whey isolate(biopro is the best. it is not sold by itself, but in others peoples products, unless you buy a 50lb sack). most gainers have crapy protein.
