Will Taking a Mass Gainer Make Me Fat?
If you use a mass gainer like Serious Mass without working out regularly or hard enough you will likely wind up putting on fat as opposed to muscle. If you're going to take a mass gainer make sure you're going to be training hard, otherwise you may be better off just increasing the amount of lean protein in your diet.
Can I Use Serious Mass as a Meal Replacement?
While some users who have a hard time fitting in meals will use Serious Mass as a meal replacement, that somewhat defeats the point of using a mass gainer. Mass gainers are typically used on top of your 3 meals per day. In addition to allowing you to add additional calories and protein to your diet, the best way to take in nutrients is through real whole foods.
Should I Only Take Serious Mass on Training Days?
Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass can be taken on training and non-training days.
