Homemade MRP (Weight gainer) Recipes

July 27th, 2007 by Paul Johnson

Bodybuilders can make their own homemade weight gainers at home for a cheaper price. Plus they will taste a lot better too and without all the other junk added in them. You can customize below in a variety of ways based on if you are cutting or bulking. The main 3 things is the protein, carbohydrate, and fat content.

1) Protein. You can either have 1-2 scoops of protein powder or 1 scoop of protein powder and 1 cup of milk or 2 cups of milk. If you are cutting, you should go with only the scoops of protein powder.

2) Carbohydrates. You can either have maltodextrin, grinded up oatmeal, or 1 to 2 fat free yogurts. Maltodextrin is high glycemic so should be avoided if possible, to help avoid insulin tolerance long term. If you are cutting you should go with oatmeal.

3) Fat. Fat is optional in your homemade MRP and could be either flaxseed oil or natural peanut butter. If you are having maltodextrin, then you should add a tablespoon or two of flaxseed oil to slow it's digestion.

    I find it so much easier just to buy the powder and pour the milk inside instead of making it myself. In the long run I don’t think it saves much money anyways sinnce weight gain powders are so cheap now.
