Getting the right amount of calories to keep your mass gains on the right track can be difficult. For a lot of bodybuilders eating a huge amount of food is hard for some people and also can be very expensive.For others it is hard to find time at their job to eat a solid meal other then lunch.
As a solution to this problem many bodybuilders turn to the many weight gain powders on the market but again these can be expensive and a lot of them may not have the best ingredients in them. Many may also be lacking certain macro nutrients that you need to even out your diet.

To get around this I like to make homemade weight gain shakes that i can tune to give me the nutrients I want in the amounts that I want. Home made weight gain shakes are cost effective, easy to make and usually taste really good and can be modified to change the taste.

To save even more money i get my protein powders from www.illpumpyouup.com
