Only if you mix 'em with ice cream.

Default Oh come now....FATTENING IS CHEAP!!

Everyone knows that America harbors the fattest poor people on earth. All of the cheapest foods are FATTENING! Losing weight is for the rich unless you have a fast metabolism, then it's cheap. Weight gain shakes are expensive!! Just go the value meals at McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's or stock up on a bottle of cheap frying oil, get yourself a used deep fat fryer and go to town.

White bread is 99cents a loaf everywhere....even here in NYC.....butter you can get for under 3 bucks a POUND......and cheaper in most places if you hunt. Salads and fish and fruits and veggies are quite costly, but, jeez....how can you think gaining weight is expensive? I gained my most weight ever when I was a starving student fresh outta college awaiting a job. Gained 65 pounds, in fact....all of it on junk food.

NO EXCUSES!! Eat on the cheap!

No. Ice cream is much better, but be sure to balance it out with carbs and vegetables.

weight gain shakes will make you gain weight, but your physical activity will determine what kind of weight.

No - in the form of spare genitalia. That's why you don't see fat peolple naked very often.

Spare parts. Lots of 'em.

Explains the baggy pants too.

Weight gain stuff made for bodybuilders (ie: people who lift heavy barbells) can be very hard on your kidneys if you're not making good use of the protein (ie: making muscle, not fat). It's not just a matter of calories, it's the type of calories.

I'd go with the ice cream plan if I was you.

um, if you cant afford extra food, how are you gonna pay for weight gain powder? i've never bought any, but i'd imagine it to be expensive.

Actually, muscle-building weight gain powder isn't that good for fattening. Muscle takes protein, so that's what that stuff has.

For fat, you want carbs (lots of calories, easy to digest) and fats (even more calories, plus they taste good so you'll eat more.)

The good news is most of the cheap basic foods are high-carb. Mac and cheese, crackers and cookies, bread, rice, potatoes, cereal, anything sweet...

Just get eating, and forget that nasty powder stuff!

If you don't do anything, you will die of starvation. So while it is best to limit your activity in general; feel free to get all the exercise you want in going to the kitchen and scooping out bowls of ice cream.

in short: yes. but chugging down any kind of medicinal supplement could fuck your system up. try it in moderation if you must, but like anyone slimming down should exercise and diet instead of taking pills or throwing up, anyone fattening up shouldn't really mess around either. eat and be lazy instead.

Most weight gain powders are not heavy in protein. Protein powder, yes, but weight gain powder is mainly filled with carbs and some fat.

Too dangerous. Best way is with real butter, use an ice cream scooper to make cones with it and dip in honey or corn syrup before each bite.

Well- you definitely want to carefully use the protien powders. As with the earlier comments - some of the 'muscle building' products that are put out by the fitness companies are not the best if misused. If you follow- the sport of bodybuilding - quite a few of the competitors have come down with very serious illnesses as a result of this regimine ; ie, Mike Mattarazzo, Flex Wheeler, Dennis Newman, Don Long, Steve Michalik to name a few have all had to give up the bodybuilding regimine cause these guys went overboard along with the riods and other supplements to abuse their bodies...

Now that being said there are ways that you can achieve your goals

1. eat six small meals (less taxing on your system)

2. work up to drinking a gallon of milk a day
(assuming you are not lactose intolerant).
if you are intolerant then you could consume some designer/whey protien powder and juice -BUT, you have to 'cycle' this one month drinking your shakes between meals and then two months off.

3. Do squats - or deep knee bends (free style or with weights). This will build your appettitite and endurance. Start with 20 squats per day and gradually increase to 500. The 500 squats can be broken into sets as follows

2 sets 250 squats
5 sets 100 squats
10 sets 50 squats

with the squats and six meals - you can easily gain 50lbs in 6 months

good luck

Not all of the weight gain shakes have protein as the highest ingredient. The one linked below is primarily Carbs followed by fats and protein.

Take that, add a yummy ice cream (use vanilla), chocolate syrup and milk and put less powder then it calls for, and you have a damned good tasting chocolate milkshake with about enough calories (3500) to equal a pound if you make a big enough one

Although the pound thing doesn't seem to work on giant fatties (yeah I know - trust me) but it works out to maybe .5 to .75 if you keep with your regular food regimen on a daily basis.

Your body may plateau at some point wondering what the heck is going on - run through that with lots of mini meals and snacks and you'll be back on an upward curve in no time.

Fat Hugs,
Heather

P.S. This is from my own personal experience and I've been healthy with no complications. I don't know what your body chemistry is like, so take things easy and make sure you aren't making yourself sick.
