Not everybody can eat massive to build muscle. This is why weight gainers were created in the first place. They are high-calorie supplements created to help individuals (who cannot hit their calorie requirements) gain weight. Gainers contain varying amounts of carbohydrates, protein and fat, plus vitamins, minerals, individual amino acids and other supplements such as creatine.
One serving of a weight gainer supplement can have from 300 calories to more than 1,000 calories and between 15 and 50+ grams of protein along with a large amount of carbohydrates.
Individuals who are trying to build muscle and cannot get all their daily calories from food usually use weight gainers. However, if you don’t need as many calories as you think and you start taking the high-calorie supplement, you may gain fat and not muscle. Getting too many calories from any source – even one marketed as a muscle builder – leads to fat gain.
However this is not an issue for Matt Stonie who is a competitive eater. The guy is known for eating incredible amounts of food in a short time. He even managed to eat what “the Rock” eats in a day – in a single monster meal. In this video Matt will try to drink a whole 5 lb “Arnold Iron Mass” weight gainer in under 5 minutes.
For those that don’t know, that’s whole lot of calories packed into one 5lb jug – 12 000 calories to be exact. Banana Cream flavor. Let’s see how it’s done.
I wonder how this guy stays so skinny. He must be an owner of a really “fast” metabolism, I guess.
