NUTRIENT AND CALORIE INTAKE – IN LIQUID FORM
People to overestimate their actual nutrient consumption when trying to gain muscle. In other words, they eat less than they think they need for steady and significant progress. Moreover, the so-called hardgainers have to face the problem that having calorie surplus by eating only solid food is almost impossible because of their very fast metabolism.
Weight-gainer shakes (made from weight-gainer powders) can solve this problem. These shakes contain fast-digesting protein and carb sources fortified with other active ingredients. These shakes are ideal for pre- or post-workout and morning consumption.
One of most important considerations for choosing the right muscle gainer is the carb content. Dietary proteins are the sources of nitrogen and indispensable amino acids which the body requires for tissue growth and maintenance. If you want to increase your muscle mas, keeping your protein intake high is extremely important (2-2.6 g per body weight kg is a good rule of thumb). If the total protein content of your solid meals and gainer shakes still doesn’t meet your needs, it is advisable to boost the solid meals with whey shakes
It is sensible to choose fat-digesting protein sources during mass-building – as opposed to cutting, when slow-digesting ones are better choices. So we recommend using whey dominant formulas during mass-building and casein-dominant formulas during cutting.
