What is your take on taking a weight gainer [to help with calorie consumption] and a whey protein? I'm trying to burn the fat off my belly, which I know takes cardio and good diet. The weight gainer will not interfere with burning the fat off right? I have Weider Mega Mass 2000, it brings 530 calories per serving.
And is it okay to take two scoops of whey protein? Like ON gold standard? Caus eI read some stuff about, if you take 48 grams of protein, instead of just one scoop of 24grams, that your body will not take all 48 grams or something like that.
Weight gainer isn't bad. The major thing you need to remember is diet. What you actually eat and WHEN you actually eat. Weight gainer is good for building mass and you can build that mass while burning the fat off.
It's not bad to take 2 scoops or more than 24 grams. The worst thing that it will do is just be expensive for you. Depending on your body weight, you may or may not be able to consume 48 grams. But it's not bad for you if you took more than your body can digest as it will just go to waste like everything else your body doesn't use.
The main thing is just making sure the protein is high quality and doesn’t have a bunch of fillers or sugars. Your eating habits is what will really cut the belly fat. You could almost stop doing cardio and hold a strict diet and you would lose weight. Detoxing and cleansing your body is a huge thing too.
I live in the gym and my wife and I are huge into supplements/dieting/training etc. If you ever have questions just hit me up about it anytime.
