I've been using this for well over a year now and found the best way to drink this is by using a blender and using milk. By doing this is tastes a quite good. However, I'm constantly working and don't have time to grab a blender or carry milk to work. Using water and just a protein shaker does not mix properly. No matter how much water or how long i shake for, there are always clumps. There's also grains left at the bottom regardless of whether milk or water is used. Using a blender makes no difference. Despite the flaws, I have stuck to this product mainly because it does do the job. It just takes some time to get used to.

Lot of people complaining about the mixability of this product and having large globs....it's called a shaker bottle for a reason....shake it!!! And dont scrimp on the liquid, this stuff is thick, but doesn't sit on you or make you gag, I can still eat a meal within 45 minutes of having this straigh after the gym. I love the taste of the cookies & cream and this really helps up the calorie intake whilst keeping the diet clean. Great product for great gains.

Great Product

Been purchasing this mix for over a year now and never had any complaints. Always found it to taste great and mixes well. I mix mine with water (milk can get expensive!!) and it doesn't form many lumps. Have put on a good amount of muscular weight since using it - I take one a day, but sometimes miss a day, but still with the results I want. I can certainly tell I can go further in the gym. Would highly recommend. Cannot fault this product! PS. Service from MyProtein was top notch as always. Standard delivery arrived next day!!!

Going well

This is the first weight gain formula I have used. I weigh around 10 stone, my aim was to put on another stone. Month 1: 1 scoop twice a day, once just before the gym, the other in the evening. I didnt notice a huge difference. I had a little more energy at the gym but that was about it, maybe an extra pound at most. Month 2: Started mixing 1 scoop of total gainer and 1 scoop of oats, within around 2 weeks I put on about 4lbs. Still another 2 weeks to go but its definitely going in the right direction. Im lifting heavier weights and more of them. It definitely gives me more energy in the gym and is adding the weight. Im not sure I could deal with 2x 3 scoops a day as it suggests but if I did I reckon I would be a right fat ....... within a week :-P Taste is nice - vanilla. Mixability is pretty poor but if you squish it around the glass and then mix it it mixes ok.

Value gainer but beware when using a coil shaker

Good nutritional content (and rare to find a weight gainer with no creatine - I like to choose when to add this into my supplements myself) and not a bad tasting one either. I went for cookies and cream and thought it tasted fine. I quite often have a problem when using a coil shaker though which results in a large lump of product getting caught inside the coil. Don't know if this is just happening to me but it's a bit of a nuisance. All in all though not a bad product.

BLOATING

It has everything you want and does what is says, the product is so awkward. I have found it near impossible to train on days I consume this product. Maybe this is just the banana flavour but the sickly flavour stays with me all day along with a huge bloated stomach. I can feel it sitting on me. Ive tried mixing with water, milk and half and half and still its difficult. Won't mix without a blender either so you might need a spoon. I wouldn't recommend, this product you are better off sticking to whey and adding oats.

It works for mr

I've been buying the vanilla for just under three months now and so can feedback with some authority. I drink one 500ml mix of three scoops, one just under half semi skimmed milk and the rest water. It mixes fine in the Myprotein blender bottle. Sometimes I add a little milk or water at the end to mix the remaining powder caught in the wire blending ball. I go for the vanilla and it tastes good, no complaints there. As a protein supplement to my gym routine, I have gained 7lbs in weight, muscle in that three month period. I was a little concerned at first that I might put on weight in fat, but I haven't. I'm impressed enough to keep using a Total Gainer.

I'm very satisfied with this product as this is the only gainer I tried which, after a month, brought some progress. Therefore, I have no doubt in quality of this product ingredients. Mixability and taste might be a problem. First pouch I tried was Cookies and Cream. Didn't like the taste and mixability was really poor. You won't be able to get a smooth shake using a standard shaker. Second pouch which I'm currently taking is Milk Chocolate. Taste is much better and mixability is improved. Otherwise I have no problem recommending this product as I'm convinced that with solid workout program it will give you good lean muscle gains.

Works just fine

I bought this as part of a bundle. The only quibble I have is that one couldn't choose the flavour that came with the bundle; you were stuck with banana, which is not my favourite. But as banana powders go, this one isn't bad, and you're really savouring it for the taste, are you? It goes down just fine with no chunks or lumps to speak of. Only been using it about three weeks now, but as far as i can tell, it also works pretty well: gained about a pound or two.

Why I'll be buying again

I was wary about buying this at first. I wanted something that was high in protein but would help me gain a few pounds to compliment the weight training. In a little under a month I've already put on a couple of pounds, no less than I would expect st this early stage. I chose the vanilla and I've no regrets there either. When mixed with two thirds water, one third semi skimmed milk, it tastes very nice, thick enough but not too thick. It mixes okay, sometimes I top it up when it's near the bottom to dissolve the remainng powder. I could use a blender, and I'm sure it would be smoother but it's just not worth the bother. I find it stops me needing to eat breakfast until an hour or so after exercise. The bag mentions 2 or 3 a day, but I stick to the one in place of breakfast first thing.

Great product, I use it as my only protein shake and meal replacement now. I was on Whey protein from 'My Protein' for many months, which offered great recovery and what my body needed after the gym, but I didn't see much gain in muscle, even though I workout 3 times a week. Since switching to this product, within weeks I have gained a few kg's in muscle, and haven't changed my routine, finally I can see the efforts from my workouts. I see people reviewing this product and have said it is lumpy, but at the end of the day, it works..well it does for me and if you want it lump free, there are many ways around that...either mix with more water/milk, which I do, infact I have found if you add the liquid first, and shake it well in the container, its smooth, and there is always a hand blender. I use two full scoops in each serve.

Mass gainer - Best product I've purchased so far

Mass gainer has by far been the best product I have purchased from Myprotein so far. It's effective with 35g of protein per shake and a quick way of pumping the calories back in after a big workout. If you're looking for a winter bulk this is the supplement to get, along with Milk whey protein which is great to have before bed, instant oats and taurine for pre workout and creatine monohydrate. Two shakes a day of Mass gainer you will almost immediately (2 weeks) notice gains, and by 6 weeks you will have noticed a huge gain.

You don't need a blender for this, you just need the shaker with the steel ball inside it. A few tiny lumps never hurt anyone, they are nothing to cry over. I bought cookies and cream flavour and it takes some getting used to but after a few days I can get it down without a problem, I would definitely recommend and will be buying again once I am through with the second packet.

Very good!

I've been struggling to maintain my weight since training and although I was getting stronger I wasn't really getting any good size increases. The Total Gainer had all the stuff I needed in terms of complete recovery and it doesn't mix bad at all. If you have a blender it's no problem, if you have a shaker cup than add little increments of water and mix it up with a fork to ensure there are no lumps. The taste could be slightly better but than again it's not about the taste is it... Since using this product I have found my muscle mass increase and my nutritional goal are better met. Thanks MyProtein!

Total gainer vanilla

Total Gainer has a fantastic taste and does what it says on the tin. It's not a bad price either if comparing to other brands. Sometimes small lumps form when mixing but I think that comes from the powder being compact, it needs a bit of separation before adding milk or water.

OK so far

Ordered Total Gainer in Strawberry flavour so that I could potentially mix it with my strawberry protein if needed and so far it seems ok. Mixability is a bit poor. After attempting to use my hand mixer to blend, it wasn't working too well as the whole batch of powder started spinning like cement so I used a normal blender and after that it's been a breeze to work with! It is very thick though once mixed and once I've put two 50g scoops into my blender I do have to blitz it with a lot more liquid - be it milk or water, in order to get the consistency I like. Taste is nice. It's also nice knowing that you're getting some protein in there by default too, as well as some other important ingredients/carbs. It may also be worth noting that I do have quite a sweet tooth, so this drink on its own isn't quite as sweet as I normally like, so I tend to mix it with a sweetener such as Fructose or Dextrose to help sweeten it up if necessary.

Goes Well With:

Protein powders, Tri-Mixture, BCAAs, Fructose, Dextrose and anything sweet.

Superb

Total Gainer is absolutely fantastic. I have had my fair share of shakes over the years. I'd been passed to one brand after another by health professionals to mates and nothing compares! This stuff is absolutely amazing! As corny as it sounds I am still absolutely amazed every time I make a shake! I read the reviews before ordering and from what I read a lot of people are concerned with its mixability and from previous powders I have noticed it is indeed a little tougher to mix but with a blender or even a whisk it mixes fine and I put it down to this one just having more of the good stuff and not just over priced flavoured dust like so many of the other brands. I had only to have four days worth before I noticed its effects surprisingly it increased my diet. I had been on a dire weight loss streak (not intentional) and having an extremely demanding workout I just did not have the calories and could not complete my workouts. Having a busy life I don't have the time to constantly try and eat meals outside of normal meal times... So this combined with meals has boosted my energy and although I've not put on enough weight to effectively say its the powder, I have certainly been more active and hungrier, so much hungrier! The flavour is astounding... I have never known a shake to taste so delicious! Some may find it a little too sweet although I'm a way away from getting sick of it yet. I suggest any of you men whom like me find it virtually impossible to gain weight. You seriously need to give it a shot. And for this price... why not?!

The only downside I would say at this stage is that it doesn't seem to mix well with milk. Also, I find I need to remember to fill my mixing jug with water or wash it straight away otherwise the remaining mixture dries and forms a suitable replacement for cement. Other than that, I am pleased with the product so far.

Everlasting Energy, Size Gainer

I bought Total Gainer seeking a pre-workout shake that will boost my energy, as I was finding I'd start getting very fatigued after about 40 minutes of training, and I'm not one who likes to use caffeine-based products and all those other weird and wonderful products. I just want carbs and calories. This product has transformed my training and I can easily workout for at least an hour and a half, without suffering fatigue and muscle aches. The effect was instantly noticeable and I even set my best bench press during the session after my first shake (even I was shocked at its effect). This product is great for anybody, like me, who doesn't want to eat a ton of food before working out. Although the shake is a weight gainer, if you supplement it properly you will not gain weight (fat). For example I only have one before I work out, then have a regular low carb whey protein after, then get the rest of my protein from food when out of the gym. I have not gained weight (fat) at all, but I have definitely seen a great increase in mass and bulk after about a month of using it. I can't wait to see what the results will be in the future. I terms of mixability it isn't bad at all, as long as you don't mind getting a hand blender. I mix it with a shaker for about 20 seconds then take the top off and put the hand blender in for about 20 seconds and it is the smoothest shake I have ever drank. I have the Cookies and Cream shake, it tastes fantastic. It's sweet, smooth and tastes like vanilla. The shake has never upset my stomach. Each shake contains over 30g of protein, which is great value for money per shake. If you're wanting to gain mass, get healthy and easy energy pre-workout, then I highly recommend this product. Do not be put off by the product being a 'weight gainer' because if you use it properly then you can use it for whatever function you want. Whether you're wanting to gain weight in general or gain mass and size, then this product is for you. I will be using this product for a long time.

A low carb, post-workout whey protein shake and a good diet.

I've been taking this Total Gainer for 5 weeks now and have put on 4 1/2 kgs. I am most definitely a hard gainer, but over the past few weeks along with regular meals I have been able to put on weight easier than I could have ever imagined. Hopefully my skinny figure is long gone and from now on I can start bulking up. I will definitely be purchasing another bag! This gives the best results in mixing: add milk 500ml of milk to shaker first, then add 2/3 scoops. Shake like mad and you're ready. I started a creatine cycle which has also helped!

Great Product.

As an ectomorph, and a teenager, I usually struggle to put on any form of size easily. This product is definitely worth having if you want to gain mass, it is an easy and effective way to get extra calories into your diet healthily. The strawberry tastes nice, not too sweet as most shakes are, meaning that you are more keen to drink it rather than avoiding it as you do with some badly flavoured shakes which make you feel sick when and after drinking. I have been trying many different gainer formulas over the past year and I have to say this genuinely, this is the one which has made the most satisfied, so much so that I have purchased another bag after a week of use. The only issue which I have found is that it is not as easily mixable as some other shakes, there are a few lumps per shake, however I do not have the most state of the art shaker! All in all, this product is exactly what it says it is and is definately worth your money.

Consistent and Effective

I've used Total Gainer about 10 times so I have good experience with the product. I usually buy cookies and cream or chocolate smooth/mint. All of those flavours have tasted great mixed with water or milk. I have even used it to make some high protein/calorie recipes and it has worked pretty well. Cookies and cream is my personal favourite and is the best tasting protein shake I have used. The only downside to this would be the mixability. It can be a little lumpy, especially with milk. However this is not a major issue to be honest. It tastes great, and when I get lumps in the cookies and cream flavour it is just like little lumps of cookie dough! In terms of effectiveness, it will be really helpful if you don't have time for a cooked meal. I don't really track my weight but I do track strength, and when using this on a daily basis along with a high protein whole food diet, I have seen considerable strength gains. I have also seen minimal fat gain when using this (weight gainers often get a bad rep). This isn't a substitute for a good diet and training program however. The effectiveness really comes down to how good your diet and training is to begin with, not a supplement.

Tastes amazing

First of all I would like to say that taste/flavour is not the priority when purchasing supplements. I ordered the cookies and cream flavour of Total Gainer, and it honestly is one of the tastiest protein shakes I have ever tasted! I have only mixed using a blender so far, so I am unable to comment on the mixability through shaking, but I always blend an hour or so before consumption anyway and then give it a thorough shake. I only do weights twice a week and attend Thai boxing and BJJ classes, and I need a good quality shake with the right balance of ingredients to recover and grow. I stack this product with essential amino acids and medium chain triglyicerides to increase the amino acid profile for recovery and fatty acid intake to maintain and build lean muscle. If you are unsure as to whether this product is right for you I can assure you it has one the best all round nutritional profiles of MyProtein's products.

Healthy Gains

This Total Gainer is an all-round great product. I was originally taking the Impact Weight Gainer and although I saw some improvements, they were nothing compared to the gains I've seen with this product. I have been taking this shake 3 times a day, once in the morning with my breakfast, one to sip during my workout (which is great for that extra energy when you're fatigued), and then one straight after my workout, for about 3 weeks. I've tried both the banana and chocolate mint flavours, the chocolate mint being the tastier of the two. 3 kilos gains in 3 weeks - fat gains also apparent obviously but hey, gotta eat big to get big. Be warned though, the mixability isn't great and you'll probably end up having to waste a bit of it if you don't have time to use a blender as it congeals in globules in the bottom of your shaker. I'd still recommend it though, despite this minor setback.

First of all, Total Gainer actually tastes like cookies and cream, so don't worry about the taste It does what it says on the packet - you gain mass but not too much fat, so it's perfect if you're not ready to start cutting but want to put on some lean mass.
