Choosing a weight gainer is not that complicated. What needs some good advice, instead, is choosing the best weight gainer.
Let me ask you: when you go to a vitamin store, or visit a website master in bodybuilding supplements such as bodybuilding.com or Amazon.com, do you get lost too when it's time to choose?
Just type whey protein, or weight gainer... Did you get less than 10 different products to choose from?
Hmmm...I didn't think so!
That's great when you have many options.
The real problem is that many times we don't have a clue of which is the best and maybe we end up buying something that is low quality or that brings absolutely no results.
This is what I figured during these years...
Black Box = Bad Luck!
Call it Murphy's Law or whatever you like, but when you don't know what to choose you end up choosing wrong, despite what happens in the movies where they're always lucky.
Same principle applies here when you hope that what you purchased is the best weight gainer.
Diversify Products and Brands
I've tried sorting by Top Rated and Best Sellers...I've tried reading a bunch of reviews hoping to find the best product...but it didn't really work.
I came to the conclusion that, unfortunately, you have to spend some time (and money) trying different brands before you can really find out what works for you.
Someone told me "try this" or "try that" because they were the best weight gainers ever.
Yeah, for them, not for me.
In bodybuilding the "general rule" doesn't apply very often. What works for others doesn't mean anything.
Because we're all different!
Every person is unique, and each body reacts in a differently to bodybuilding supplements.
If you've read articles like Best Testosterone Supplements or many other articles where I talk about the best of something you've probably noticed what I always say...
Nobody Can Tell You What is Best for YOU
All they can tell you is...what is best for others! Based on their experience!
That can certainly help, but don't take it as a rule.
Take it as a starting point. Definitely something to try first before you just guess.
All I can teach you is this:
- Try a product and see how your body reacts to it
- If you like it and see results, stick with it for a while
- Cycle, change after some time
- If you don't like a product, write it down in the black book, your search is now narrower
