Champion Nutrition Heavyweight Gainer 900
Champion Nutrition Heavyweight Gainer 900 is a very good weight gain powder and among the best I have ever tried. I quite thoroughly enjoy it, and drink it either alone, or mixed with my regular whey protein powder. It is a very tasty gainer mix and comes in three flavors: chocolate, strawberry and vanilla.
I find that it is very sweet and drinking it alone is sometimes hard due to it's sweetness. Since I'm such a health buff I avoid sugar quite a bit and as a result, drinking a very sweet gainer shake wasn't easy at first, while my non bodybuilding friends found it to be a delicious drink (whose diets are not as bodybuilding specific and are used to sweet tasting drinks and snacks).
To reduce the sweetness a little, mix it with a lot of milk or water. I normally drink it in smaller portions, that way it isn't too sweet, and I space out the shakes I have throughout the day, rather than having one large shake. I will drink several small shakes a day mixed with a lot of milk and water, which I find makes it taste just fine.
Sometimes I will add a bit of heavyweight gainer in with my regular whey protein shakes, or sometimes the other 'whey' around (bad pun). Start with one scoop and add enough milk or water until it is at a taste to your liking. Just experiment and determine what you enjoy the most. I find it is very thick and a shaker container helps the consistency quite a bit.
