    I wouldnt or dont use either of those but thats just me.

    I think that boost shit is full of shitty types of oils if you look at the ingredients. (sunflower, vegtable, safflower).

    Some crappy stuff in there, but Im picky.

    actually I do, a book called Hardgainers Bodybuilders Handbook helped me ALOT. I just apply it to my mma training. As long as you put some kind of cardio into your routine you should just gain lean muscle mass and not bulk. Read the book but apply it to MMA training. I was 5'11 145 and like 2 months later I am 5"11 160. I dont know your height/weight but this book helped me. I did it all through natural healthy food, bodyweight exercises, and protein powder.


    here is what I do.


    to figure calories body weight x 24= total calories per day
    for carbs- total # of calories x 0.50
    for protein total # of calories x 0.25
    and for good fat - calories x0.25 divided by 9


    hope that helped

    thats all gram figurations BTW

    just so you know protein shakes are just milk with protein powder mixed in them (some people use water), you just use a spoon to mix them it literaly takes about 4 seconds


    this is a good website

    I use Optimum Nutrition Whey

    As far as I know creatine makes you put on a small amount of weight due to water retention in the muscles. The only thing that can truly "make" you gain weight is to take in more calories than you burn. its really a simple secret. But it is also the quality of these calories and not just the quanity. that is the dfifference between fat and lean muscle.

    As for Xyience, I am not familar with the product.
