Folks— it's still 5000 Calories. I've used all 3 renditions of Russian Bear 5000 and have made consistent strength and weight gains when used properly. First of all let me say that all formulas equal to the 5000 calories when mixed with 635g of powder. The only thing that has changed is the serving size. The first formula contained a milk and egg protein protein powder with added ingredients such as: Yohimbe Bark Sikadeer Antler powder Schizandra chinensis Eleutherococcus Inosine HXR Colostru Boron Chromium Picolinate The second formula took out some of the ingredients and added tribulus and tongkat. Deer antler was removed probably due to the FDA'S concern with it. It also suggested dividing the shakes into 3 6oz drinks for a 21 day supply. Still you would mix 5 scoops in 1 gallon of milk. The current reformulation removed the non fat milk solids and replaced it with 80% Whey Protein Concentrate. All of the original anabolics were put back in including deer antler and on top of that the tribulus and tongkat. The flavor is less sweet and the prescription is to take it 3 shakes a day 16oz of whole milk and 60g of protein powder. Also added are digestive enzymes. 1 scoop is roughly 80g of powder. If you do the math and use a scale, the calories is still exactly the same. I recently picked up and older tub of the "21 day program" and concluded that I like the newest formula the best as it is easier to digest. The taste is less sweet probably due to the lack of stevia, but I do like the modernizing of WPC 80, added deer antler and digestive enzymes. All of their updates are on their website in which you can google.

So, I have used many, many mass gainers and other kinds of weight gain shakes. I have to say, this not only taste fantastic, but I gained the most weight using this shake. My metabolism is extremely fast so it is hard for me to gain weight, but this stuff worked. It still does, I use it once in the morning, once after workout, and once before bed. I love it.

The last time I used this product was in 2014. I see they've changed the label since then. But it looks like they're still making disingenuous claims. Like, 5000 calories? Sure, if you mix one third of the jug with 1 gallon of whole milk. Who is going to drink all that in one day? And then they say it contains "anabolics" like Deer Antler and Yohimbe. LOL, you call those real anabolics? And even if that stuff is beneficial, do you really think they'd add enough of it to make a difference? It reminds me of bottled ice teas saying they contain ginkgo biloba or pomegranate, but the amount they give you is so miniscule it ain't gonna accomplish anything. My other complaint about this product is the cheap carbs. They act like glucose is high-tech, LOL. And then they say it contains "milk solids" for protein. OK, but is it whey or casein? And if it's whey, what KIND of whey? Isolate, concentrate, or what? Why can't they tell us? Frankly, I think the main reason people buy this stuff is the whole "Russian" allure, like as if it contains some super-secret Russian steroids or something, LOL. I mean come on, there are MUCH better products out there. For approximately the same price per pound, you could get Ultimate Nutrition Iso Mass Xtreme Gainer, which has MUCH better ingredients. Or MHP Up Your Mass, which contains complex carbs from oats and barley.....not cheap glucose.

Do not waste your money on this product. This product is now absolutely horrible. It was good before they changed the formula. They took out & lowered some vitamins and minerals. They also lowered the protein & calorie content. It was called Russian Bear 5000 because when mixed as directed you got 5000 calories per gallon of whole milk when mixed with 5 scoops. I usually got 4 to 5 gallons from one container. You got 184 or so grams of protein mostly from egg whites & healthy fats from coconut mcts. There was no added sugar & no fat - it even contained molybdenum. When used as directed you'd have a gallon of the stuff ready made so it was easy to just drink a cup of it or make a shake or even pancakes or bread with it. It was even good with fat free milk, coconut, or almond milk. It was a great product. Now you don't get 5000 calories, you don't get 184 gms of protein, you don't get molybdenum & other stuff. They almost completely changed the formula of something that worked for over 20 years. Now its just powder...that makes you pee for some reason. I actually just threw 2 sealed canisters in the trash along with a half full one. They f@!%ed up. I recommended it before, but not anymore. I told them this on their website too...shame on you vitol...shame!
