    Question Quality of macros?

    I'm currently on a bulk and need at least 3000 calories daily. Is it better for me to invest in a mass gainer or protein powder? I'm currently on Serious Mass but I've heard it's just better to buy a whey protein as it has better quality protein and macros since mass gainer is full of 'empty carbs'. Would you guys recommend I stick to Serious Mass or buy a whey protein such as ISO100?

    More of Nutrition forum thread... You need to be getting your required vitamins, minerals, fibre, phytonutrients, protein and essential fatty acids from all the foods you eat.

    You are right to question replacing whole foods which might contain a broad section of these things with a processed product which only contains carbs and protein. Whey protein is good quality insofar as amino spectrum and bioavailability is concerned. There is no real way of describing carbs as "quality" or not since carbs are nonessential. When we talk about how good particular food choices are, we are more likely referring to what else the foods contains as well as just carbs.

    Practical takeway: put your diet into something like cronometer.com and check you are meeting RDAs for all the important things.

    Mostly up to you as far as how you wanna reach the 3000 cal goal. For me source isn't as relevant as macro totals at the end of the day. I personally like to keep as many whole foods in there as possible, so I very rarely do a "Mass Gainer" type of product.

    My first meal every day is one I make myself:

    80g oats
    1 banana (I try to go pretty green)
    100g spinach/greens mix
    2Tbsp Pb2
    14g coconut oil
    15mL Apple Cider Vinegar (I feel it helps with bloating)
    240mL Fairlife chocolate milk
    4-6oz water
    1 scoop of protein powder

    Use protein powder as a base and blend in anything and everything that you want to make it fit your needs. You don't even have to use protein. My shake has +40g of protein and +20g of fiber. It's the base for my daily nutrition.
    Supplement a good diet: don't diet on supplements.
