unless you are working out with weights it will most likely only cause an increase in body fat. just wait until july. 52 grams of protein is way to much for post workout. I would cut that in half and add something like a banana to it. that way the ratio of protein to carbs is still close to 1:3. Edit: what's wrong with fat? the fatter you are the harder it becomes to increase muscle mass. the level of body fat that a person has is a direct indicator of their bodies current ability to utilize nutrients efficiently. a lean body equal high insulin sensitivity in the muscle cell, muscle gain is easy. a high amount of body fat equals low insulin sensitivity, muscle mass is gained in minimal amounts when the body is in this state. fat or adipose tissues is also a major conversion site for testosterone to estrogens. there is simply nothing positive or healthy about a steadily increasing body fat %. unless you are currently in single digit body fat then you should try to keep fat gains to a minimum while increasing muscle mass.

If you'r in the US, quite likely nothing. Supplement makers bought loopholes in the law that allows them to put inaccurate labels on products so buyers dont know what they'r getting. If you really need an edge in arms n chest n legs, do more exercise unless that'd be over training; and optimize your diet. Do you know your protein intake? If you'r using supplements, you cant be sure bc you dont really know how much prot is in them. The most prot you'd need would be 1 gram / 1 lb bod wt, and that's for a maxed out routine of wts & cardio. Get prot from food so you know what you'r getting. 1 large egg white is 6-7 grams of prot, no carbs and a trivial amt of fat, and prob 25 cals. 23 grams of skim milk powder [1/3 cup] makes one cup of liquid milk and has 8 gr prot, 12 grams sugar and 80 cals.

It's hard to grow big and keep your abs. The point is to grow big and then diet down to get the abs. A weight gainer is not what you're looking for if you want to gain muscle but still keep your abs while doing so. You have to figure out how many calories you need in order for your muscle to grow without gaining any fat. Just to let you know, abs on a skinny guy are not cool or good looking. Every skinny guy has abs...

weight gainer is a rip off. Whey is very good. Do heavy weight training. I use Max OT for training google it. This helps to gain muscle. Also 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after take your whey. 20 to 30 grams off protein before, and in your post workout drink up it to 40 -60 grams of protein. Plus eat and apple with it to get the sugar to kick start the process of fueling you muscle recovery. Also rest do not overtrain.
