    Pro Performance is a pretty generic brand (I work for a GNC), so don't be surprised if you inevitably come across better products like the Macrobolic MRP from MHP, or the Micellean from VPX, both are more expensive though.

    If you're using them as meal replacements for your big meals, breakfast and lunch are the ideal 2 to replace.

    Also I'm wondering about gaining weight when taking in so much protein. I am training pretty hard now so I'm right on weight or alittle under. With hitting the gym 2-3 times a week and training 3-5 times, how much weight can I expect to gain? Any ideas? What experiences have yall had before?

    Just be consistent with it. Try it a month and im sure you will like the results.

    Plus using it as a meal replacement really makes it a quick easy meal. Nothing to think about and once you have it... you really do feel full.

    Ive had good results every time ive gone hard on protein and training. I just recently started back up this week.... Ive lost weight but im training 6 times a week on the mat. and then running 4 times a week added on to that... Im trying to drop to 195 from 210.

    Gaining muscle mass is as much about the kind of training your doing as it is what you're intaking. Heavy weight lifting = BIG muscles. Also rest is probably one of the top 5 most important things for seeing significant gains. So there is no sound base for how much you can gain based on the weight gainer and a very standard regimen alone. You can gain as much weight as you want, it's all about how you approach it.

    Don't 'replace' any meal. Take it in on top of your existing meals. I eat 5 meals and 2 protein shakes a day. I hate 'meal replacements', I had this GNC shit, took me an hour to drink, thick as pudding, and it just all around sucked my balls, so I don't do meal replacements anymore.

    If you 'replace' an actual meal with your shakes, then you're not really gaining anything at all.
