    If you figure your macros and are eating the right amount of calories with protien, fats and carbs as well as training right I wouldn't worry about either. Those are supplements to fill in what you can't from your regular meals, if you need one go with a good whey protien.

    @yee Aaron is spot on! You only need to add protein as a supplement if you're not already getting enough protein from your regular diet. If you add up your totals for a normal day of eating and you're not getting enough protein.. then yes whey protein is the way to go. No need for a mass gainer really. Watch the video below if you haven't already!

    Stick with Whey protein only and AVOID all mass gainers. Mass Gainers are just glorified sugar drinks - no better than adding protein powder to a Coke. To get the high amount of calories per serving they advertise, they are packed with sugar. You will gain weight but it will not be quality weight. The best path to gaining quality weight is eating enough nutritious foods and supplementing with Whey and/or Casein protein to ensure you meet the required protein intake needs to support muscle growth. Whey protein is easily absorbed, a complete protein, and relatively inexpensive.

     

    There is no magic pill or supplement that makes this happen nor will replace eating quality calories from quality food sources. If you are a "hard gainer", it just means you need to eat more calories per day than someone who isn't. You may need to eat 3,500 to 4,000 quality calories to put on quality weight.

    Welcome to bodybuilding!

     

    Mass gainers are also known as 'fat gainers' or 'diabetes in a bottle' and so on lol. They don't add quality weight as they are packed with sugars so they aren't worth it.

     

    Get your protein from the basics: chicken breast, lean ground beef, lean ground turkey, fish, plain greek yogurt, etc.

     

    If you then need to add protein for your caloric needs, then whey is the way to go. I usually add a shake mid morning with almonds and right after training.

     

    Tip: you can always make a mass gaining shake at home (with whey, plain greek yogurt, oats, organic peanut butter, maybe a medium banana or blueberries, water)

    I’m probably a good example of most people’s view of a “hardgainer”, is 5lbs gain in a 3.5 - 4 month span about normal?

    Well it's not bad @joybulb, put it that way. Slow gains are still good gains, it means you have a better chance that it is lean mass rather than fat. If you've been lifting for a while then that's normal. If you're a newbie, it could probably be a little quicker.

     

    But look at it this way.. at this rate by the end of a 12 month span, you will have gained 15lbs if you stay at this pace, and that is AWESOME in one year!!

    You can try Cardarine, Cardarine, is a PPAR agonist that has been shown to have positive effects on muscle building, endurance, increased HDL (good) and decreased LDL (bad) cholesterol, and body recomposition. Cardarine currently has no human studies, but rodent studies have been very encouraging.
