Weight gainer
Jul 19, 2003

Will a high calorie weight gainer such as gnc's brand before bed add weight? If so how long will it take?

Response from Mr. Vergel

It probably will but be careful with the sugar content and any bloating/diarrhea. Weight gainer supplements only increase weight if you use them as supplements and not as meal replacements. It is hard to tell how long it would take. Also, try to exercise with weights and machines to ensure that you gain more lean tissue than fat. Nelson Nelson
