    * I started using Optimum Nutrition 2:1:1 Recovery post-workout, and felt that getting a 2:1 ratio of carbs with my protein helped extend the pump and speed recovery. But the price seemed high, given that much of it was a blend of cheap carbs like maltodextrin.

    So when the 2:1:1 ran out of stock, I looked for a replacement, and found that the Gold Standard Gainer has the same ratio of carbs and protein, costs less, and I like that it includes MCTs and more fiber. You can always add a bit of your favorite protein powder if you want to adjust the carb/protein ratio.

    I adjusted the serving size so I didn't gain weight, and while using it, I dropped a belt size and added muscle. If you're looking for a recovery product that includes a healthy mix of carbs, give this a try.

    * My husband needed to gain weight as he had dropped during a hospital stay. This is the only product that is consistent with his weight gain. He gets the Colossal Chocolate as (he says) it taste just like a Chocolate shake. Very well tolerated and taste great. Shipping time was great also. Very happy with the purchase.
