Bit late again, but if you're trying to pack on weight, there's nothing better than a GoMaD approach.

That's Gallon of Milk a Day.

Herbalife is so much bullshit. SO. MUCH.

I do drink protein shakes, mainly because I'm underweight and it's an easy way of getting calories when I'm not hungry or I'm in a rush. Previously used egg white powder (makes everything taste like uncooked cake mix, surprisingly delicious) but ATM I'm slogging my way through Ausbodies 100% whey, which tastes utterly terrible.
I'm told that whey protein without a proper weight training programme won't bulk you up .... But I'm no nutritionist.

I swear, if I drank that much milk, 1) I'd be flat broke in a fortnight and 2) I'd be horribly ill.

I'm not looking to bulk up, protein powder adds calories to your average milkshake. Calories are the most important factor in getting bigger.

It shows! Luckily heresay and conjuncture count for diddly squat in science. It's been known since the 80s that a higher protein intake causes a positive nitrogen balance. Hyper trophy is a different matter all together.
