Muscle Milk. Okay let me explain drink protein drinks within an hour of recovery and it will help your muscles heal faster. You also need to be eating more if you want to gain weight 5+ small meals a day. But Muscle Milk is one of the better tasting and higher protein content drinks, but it does cost quite a bit.

Unless your diet is protein deficient, you don't need protein supplements. And, using a supplement in place of real food makes no sense. The most popular protein supplements are no more than milk with the nutrition extracted leaving the whey which is then sold for several times the amount you would pay for dehydrated milk. The result is you get less nutrition and spend more money. How does that make sense? Your body does not store protein as it does fat. It makes the protein it needs when it needs it. And, if you're building muscle, it needs it over the entire recovery time between workouts and not just before or just after working out. That makes the idea of dumping a bunch of protein into your system at one time senseless. Most people grossly overestimate the amount of protein they need. Here's how much you need according to the NIH. --> http://www.cdc.gov/nutrition/everyone/ba... . Most people in the developed world get that amount of protein in their daily diet because it amounts to no more than a glass of milk, some beans, and a piece of meat. Excess protein is just wasted and excreted by the body. The secret to building muscle, burning fat and eating healthy is very simply to eat the correct and optimal amount of whole and varied foods as recommended by the US National Institute of Health. That means food, not supplements, and in the proper proportion for your body's needs. Here is what the US National Institute of Health warns about supplements. "Always check with your health care provider before taking a supplement, especially when combining or substituting them with other foods or medicine." Ref: http://ods.od.nih.gov/Health_Information... Check out this video --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4_UY_kIP... And then this one --> http://www.youtube.com/user/scooby1961#p/search/1/Xcuhi6RaZ24 You didn't say why you wanted to gain weight or if you want to add muscle, fat, or water. And, all three would require slight variations in your diet. A protein supplement is a poor choice for all three if you're getting sufficient protein in your diet as are most people in the developed world. A much better choice is nutritious food. Good luck and good health!! ♠ PS: Check back and see how many thumbs down I get for this answer. Protein supplements are the biggest myth in all of bodybuilding promoted by a multibillion dollar industry of scammers like Weider and GNC.

Drop the weight gain and protein stuff. Eat a lot more! I'm talking nothing less than 6 meals a day. Don't binge eat (too much food in too little time) Work on gaining weight than start working out more than 2 days a week. Your job no matter physical it may be is not a gym and your not targeting any specific muscle. You need a schedule to work out about 2 to 3 body parts a couple of times a week. My suggestion is to keep working out on a minimal basis. Remember the more your work the less likely you are to gain mass. Eat 6-7 meals a day. Gain 20-30 lbs. then start working out hardcore (as in heavy lifting) if you want to get a big built individual as opposed to a skinny individual with some cuts. It will be harder to get cuts as you get big. But once you get them you will be in better shape than the average-sized individual going to gym and getting cut (getting cut is the best result, most people won't see a difference.) Your back will never get bigger if you don't have the mass to go there. Get the weight on then hit the gym hard!

protein powder is supposed to give you more energy, to help you build muscle. try going to one of those health/excercise stores that sell that kind of stuff, and ask someone who knows more about the stuff.

Norm Originally Answered: What type or brand of protein powder or supplements should I use to gain weight?
You will not lose weight if you start lifting and protein will help you gain weight. Of course, yes, calories are the most important thing and you should probably talk to your doctor about ways to gain weight. I don't necessarily recommend eating anything you get your hands on. Sure, you can eat tons of calories to gain weight, but just because you physically cant pack on the pounds does not mean your heart isn’t feeling the unhealthy effects of the junk you are eating. So yes, eat ridiculous amount of food but not necessarily unhealthy food, just make sure you get the calories. You mainly want high quality protein from chicken and lean meat. If you want to pack on the weight via weightlifting, you need to lift everyday for about an hour, alternating muscle groups each day. An example would be chest/triceps/shoulders one day and bicep/back the next day (your typical push-pull routine). You can do sit ups whenever, and work in legs a couple times a week on one of those days. As far as supplements are concerned, you should definitely take protein if you are trying to build muscle. I would also recommend creatine (ethyl ester not monohydrate) as well. When using these supplements you need to be sure to drink A LOT of water, this diminishes the harmful effect these supplements might (not if you take them safely) have on your kidneys. I believe the rule of thumb for protein is that you should not exceed 1 gram of supplemental protein per pound of body weight (some people will say per kilogram, ask your doctor). I'd take two grams of creatine before lifting, although people will say to take 2 before and 2 after, that stuff can be a little more detrimental than the protein so I'd play it safe there. The other supplement I will note, but not not necessarily require you to take, is an N.O./caffeine supplement. This includes, N.O. explode, Nano Vapor, and the brand Wal-Mart carries, NoX Blast. These help with motivation more than anything. The caffeine hit gets you amped to lift and the N.O. (nitric oxide, not to be confused with the gas nitrus oxide) gets your blood flowing. Unfortunately, this supplement is a little pricy. Also, gauge your tolerance carefully when first taking this stuff, you can feel nauseous if you take too much. For protein, take Whey after you lift (and potentially before if you want) to help recovery. If you eat right after you lift, and what you eat is already high in protein, you probably do not need to take the Whey after. At night you could consider taking Caseine protein. This protein is not absorbed as fast as Whey so its feeds your muscles for a sustained time as you sleep. To build muscle you should take in plenty of protein throughout the day, try to spread it out a little and have something high in protein at each meal. As far as lifting is concerned, you probably want to do low reps high weight, but that's a whole different matter. To sum up, if you want to gain weight take the above supplements, consume a crap load of calories, and lift hard everyday and you should be set. - Side note: You can get all these supplements at Wal-mart. If you do go to a weightlifting supplement store, most will do online price matching. You are also going to need to buy a shaker to mix this crap.
