Optimum Nutrition knows that if you’re looking to grow, there’s no way around getting in adequate calories. Sure, it may seem easier said than done at times when no matter how much you eat, the size just doesn’t seem to come despite your efforts in the kitchen. Whether it’s a matter of a fast metabolism, a lack of appetite, or simply not enough time to get in the calories you need to grow, the fact remains to gain just one extra pound, you need to consume approximately 3,500 calories-above and beyond what you normally consume through foods, beverages, and supplements in a week.
Optimum Nutrition also knows that you can’t judge a gainer solely upon its calories per serving. When it comes to fueling your body for growth, not all calories are created equally and many of the gainers out there are high in unnecessary sugar and fat. Optimum Nutrition Pro Gainer sets a higher standard, packing in 650 calories per serving with 60grams of blended protein, 85 grams of muscle fueling carbohydrates and minimal sugar.
The 60g of protein in Pro Gainer are comprised of high biological value proteins for easy absorption and optimal digestion. Next, up, you need carbs for fueling and rebuilding from your workouts and fats for fueling optimal hormone production and metabolism. Each serving of Pro Gainer provides 85 grams of carbohydrates and 4-5 grams of fiber with only 5 grams of sugar. They don’t skimp on the fat aspect either, as Pro Gainer utilizes medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and other energy-dense lipids for metabolism and energy.
Then of course, you can’t forget about the little things like vitamins and minerals. While they may be micronutrients, they are a big player in the growth process. Without these micronutrients your body cannot effectively process proteins, carbohydrates, or fats. Pro Gainer addresses this by providing 26 vitamins and essential minerals per serving.
By focusing on quality and not quantity, and supplying complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), digestive enzymes, vitamins, essential minerals, and great taste, Optimum Nutrition has created the ideal lean gainer.
SHAKER CUP: Add 1 heaping scoop of PRO Gainer™ to 16 oz of cold water and shake until thoroughly dissolved. TIP: Using milk will add additional calories, carbs and proteins to the nutrient profile of your gainer shake. You can also stack your shake with creatine and other size-supporting supplements.
ELECTRIC BLENDER: : By using an electric blender, you can turn your gainer shake into a nutrient-dense mini-meal. Add in fresh or frozen fruit, peanut butter, nuts, seeds and size-supporting supplements. TIP: Adding a couple of ice cubes can improve the consistency of your shake.

Amazing product when you need to replace a meal or boost protein intake in a high prot. diet. Great taste and flavor. Smart choice. =)
Love the product use it as a postwork out shake
This stuff works. I tried both the serious mass and the pro gainer, I prefer the taste of the pro gainer by a lot, also the fact that it's just one scoop per serving, serious mass is 2, it's a lot. If you did 2 scoops of the pro gainer you would get a whopping 1,300 calories, 120 grams of protein, 170 grams of carbs and plenty of vitamins and minerals. Serious mass has more carbs and 1 gram of creatine per 2 scoops, but that to me isn't enough to pick the serious mass over the pro gainer.
Gold Standard wasn't helping me gain weight, so I decided to try out ON's mass gaining supplement. One tub doesn't last as long as I thought it would and it can be tough to choke down this many servings, but I did experience great results (gained 8lbs in 2 weeks).
