I’ve always had issues with mass weight gainers, due to their texture and the feeling of fullness after taking it. I used to use mass gainer but I had some problems like skipping the meal after and the after taste. After using this one I never had an issue at all! Its light on the stomach, delicious and gives you the nutrients that you need. It’s only downside that it has only few servings comparing to others.

There’s no super sweet taste from the gainer. And I gain weight and certain mass of muscle after drinking this for 2months. I would like to keep buying this :)

Look at the number one ingredient first when choosing a protein powder. Number one here is maltodextrin. It's understandable, as this is a "gainer" but you're paying to take a shortcut diet wise. It's a high glycemic index carb filler and where most of the calories come from. The body absorbs it quickly, spiking your insulin level enough to be anticatabolic, but you could easily find a good whole food carb source to replace this. Maltodextrin is just like sugar and the body will store it as fat if there aren't muscles that need glycogen. Also check out the serving size, one heaping scoop might seem reasonable, but grab a kitchen scale and you'll find that it requires closer to 2 mostly full scoops to equal one serving of 165 grams of this stuff. It felt like the bag was lasting longer than the claimed 28 servings, so I measured it out on the scale and found I've been getting maybe 75% of the serving I thought I was intaking. You're honestly better off eating a fruit for carbs and using ON's normal whey and casein protein, both excellent products. If you do decide to buy this as a shortcut, don't take a whole serving at once...30 min prior to working out, take 83 grams of this (3/4 scoop), and immediately after working out, take the remaining 83 grams to equal the whole serving. It works better than just smashing all of it afterwords. (Was this review of use to you? If so, let me know by clicking "Helpful." "Like" Cheers!)

it's been 6 days since I started taking. I feel a little change in my body, the important thing is that my body is not tired. I once again ordered a tool that I think will help you achieve your goal.

I've been using ON Pro Gainer for a few months and I am quite happy with the results. I wish they had more flavours but those available are really good. I totally recommend it.

ON makes great protein, and this pro gainer is no exception. The scoop is huge, so it can be used as a meal replacement or to get those extra calories in. For the regular person who goes to the gym, the scoop size might be a bit much.

After testing several gainers, this is without a doubt the best one out there (at least IMP). Consistency is great - it's not too thick and can go down easily. The taste of all these line of products is never great but this one in OK. When you add a spoon of peanut butter and a banana it's even tasty. In the mornings a shot of espresso inside also does it justice. Regarding weight gain - I was able to add about 2kg after 1-2 months. However I did not use full servings and skipped days occasionally.

This one is very palatable. It does give you the tingly feeling if you're not used to pre-workouts
