So this is my first review...
first of all, I am from Czech Republic, so please excuse my english, as it is probably far from being perfect...
I started using this product about a month ago and i am actualy very happy with the results:
1) Taste (hardcore Chocolate)
I really DO NOT consider this very important, however this gainer tastes really good. To be honest, I prefer mixing it with water, as it mixes not so good with milk (I usually prefer milk, as most shakes taste better with milk) and taste is still pretty decent. It is little to sweet and strong for me but i think it shuld be OK for most people...
this product actually gave me excellent results - i was able to put on some serious muscle without to much fat - about 4lbs of lean muscle in 3 weaks with almost no fat. I do MMA nd play rugby - both twice a week, so i have enough cardio. It is possible that someone with less cardio can experience more fat gain as this stuff is really rich in carbohydrates and calories...
3) Side effect
To be honest, first time i took this product, I spent about an hour in the bathroom :-(
However, since that I have no problems using this - I strongly recommend to use only half of recomended serving (167 not 334g) twice a day - for me this is far mor convenient and effective then trying to mix and drink one full 334g serving...
NOTE:I do not have this confiremed, but I heard some guys complaining about very high lactose content of this product. It is no problem for me, but I know there are many lactose intolerant people and this can be very important for them. So please if this is your case ,I recommed to do more research about it...
I am not sure about price in US or other part of the world, but im my country this is actually pretty cheap compared to other products - about 45$ for 12lbs. On the other hand it will not last long considering the HUGE serving. Anyway, what you get for your money is excellent, at least in my country... Please note that in my county supply of supplements is probably limited and prices much higher compared to US :-(
5) Suggested Use
As I already told you, I recommend using half serving (167g) twice a day - morning and after workout. For those, who are afraid of unwanted fat gain or smaller guys, one half serving after workout should be enough. I am 6'5'' and 240 and do enough cardio so 2 half servings work fine for me... This product is NOT suitable at all for anyone who wants to lose fat or stay extremely slim.
6) Overall Rating
I am not saying, that this is the best gainer out there, but it really works fine form me and it is IMO very reasonably priced. So if you are looking for decent gainer for reasonable price I can recommend this one for sure...
