If I eat my chicken breast (60g protein for 8 oz), and then my weight gainer shake (75g protein), is that way too much? Considering I'll be getting more protein from tuna during the day as well.

I'm gonna stop taking the weight gainer once I finish it and just get powdered oats and drink that for extra calories in the future (with added whey? Good idea or no?),

I was just wondering if for the time being if this is too much.

I weigh 139 pounds btw (around 63kg? I think)

Eat big to get big. Weight gainers typically contain high amount of carbs so if you've reached a level where you want to have a stricter diet that is when I would stop taking it but it all depends on your goals.

1.5 - 2grams per lb, so yes it's decent, could take more though.

You're probably eating more protein than you need, at your body weight, 70g - 110g would be enough for the 1-1.5g per kg of bw per day guidelines.

No that's fine, but damn, one weight gainer shake has 75g?!

I'm the same weight as you, not even particularly bulking (and female) and usually eat between 100-120g a day without even really thinking about it tbh.

If you're not suffering from gout you're not eating too much protein.

dont use a wait gainer trust me.
Get your protein from food and lean shakes.
Trust me all gainers do is give you a belly because they are full of sugar which and carbs which will take you a long time to get off.
Its just unnecessary

you're an idiot if you don't think eating a lot of protein, and lifting hard won't get you big:rolleyes:

Lol you need a moderate amount of protein, I make perfectly good gains on 100odd grams a day

Lifting hard is a pre requisite

nah 25g per shake, i plan on taking it twice or three times a day. although later i think i'll just drink some oats for calories, seems healthier.

the ingredients don't seem too bad (65% oats is pretty good right?)

i do try to get protein from meals but obviously use the shakes to help with the calories.

would drinking oats be a healthier alternative? (with an added serving of whey or casein?)

i found some "instant oats" on the myprotein website and it seemed pretty good http://www.myprotein.com/sports-nutr.../10529296.html

heres the weight gainer http://www.myprotein.com/sports-nutr.../10529988.html
