Description

THE BIGGER PICTURE OF WEIGHT-GAIN
Serious weight gain requires serious calories. However, those who need the extra calories most often have the toughest time consuming enough of them. For many aspiring to be bigger, highly-active metabolisms, weaker appetites, and on-the-run lifestyles make consuming sufficient calories through whole foods alone a real challenge. With Serious Mass, you’ve got nothing to lose and lots to gain. We’ve consolidated over 1,250 calories, 50 grams of protein, 250-plus grams of carbohydrates, and 25 vitamins & minerals with added glutamine and creatine into every serving. It’s time to stop thinking small; get serious – Serious Mass.

BEYOND THE BASICS

  • 1,250 calories per serving in water; 1,630-plus calories when made with low fat milk.
  • 50 grams of protein from a combination of faster and slower digesting sources including Whey, Casein,and Egg.
  • 250-plus grams of carbohydrates to support fueling of intense workouts and aid in the replenishment of glycogen stores - with NO ADDED SUGAR.
  • Enhanced with Creatine, L-Glutamine & Glutamine. Peptides, Choline, Inositol, PABA, and MCTs.
  • 25 Vitamins & Essential Minerals with an emphasis on B-Vitamins and Antioxidants.

Weight Gain
I love this product. When I first tried it I made it to the instructions on the package with milk it was too thick for my taste. So the next day I tried dividing the measurements 12oz milk and one scoop serious mass it taste much better. So I started doing this everyday only drinking 1/2 in the morning and the other 1/2 at night along with my meals or before so I still have my full serving per day. In 2 weeks I had gained 6 lbs. I also add fresh frozen strawberries to my blender. But I did notice when I used my blender the drink was really frothy so I would let it sit in the fridge for about 30 mins so the froth could go down. But recently I've tried just shaking it up and there is way less froth than the blender. Hope this was helpful.

Gaining
I have lost weight due to an illness and needed to gain weight. I started using Serious Mass and have already gained 4 lbs. in 2 weeks. I actually enjoy drinking it as a shake. It takes great and doesn't have that chalky texture or taste like so many others. I will continue using it even after I reach my weight gain goal.

I love it!
Chocolate peanut butter tastes great!! The only flavor I've tried and continuously reorder.. I use one scoop(half serving) mixed with milk(never water) twice sometimes three times a day. I drink it in between meals, not as a meal replacement. Adds the calories I need. I also use the "My fitness Pal" app to keep track of my daily calories.

Is it possible to bulk up using mass gainer while you’re 13 yr old?
BashdiBALDI on Jun 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If by mass gainer you mean some sort of protein like whey‚ then yes you can bulk up. However since you are only 13 your body is still growing and your metabolism is still very high. You'll have to make sure to have a good healthy diet which is high in protein along with the mass gainer to make sure it works to its fullest potential. Foods such as nuts‚ fruits‚ berries‚ eggs‚ wild salmon not farm raised‚ leafy greens and chicken will be a great start for a healthy diet.
