Mass builder scam


So you want to build some serious muscle? You’ve hit the gym, you’ve done the reps, and now you’re eyeing those big tubs of mass gainers that promise Hulk like gains in a matter of weeks. It’s hard not to be tempted by the allure of quick muscle growth, especially when you’re bombarded with unethical influencers who credit their muscle gain to these products.

When your goal is to gain muscle, it’s very important to differentiate between lean muscle mass and fat mass. Your body has a limit of how much muscle it can build in a given period and everything over that is likely going to be fat gain. But let’s be real here, if mass gainers truly had the power to turn average Joes into jacked superheroes overnight, we’d all be walking around looking like Chris Bumstead.

The Problem with Most Mass Gainers On the Market: 

  1. Companies use misleading advertising to take advantage of uneducated “newbies” buying into the hype of quick muscle gain.
  2. Low-Cost Junk Ingredients – Loaded with cheap carbohydrates/sugars and protein from low quality sources, usually containing soy protein and low grade whey/milk powders.
  3. False Protein Content – Amino Spiking is a major issue with these products, implemented by unethical companies as an easy-to-execute and fraudulent practice to falsely attribute nitrogen from a non-protein additive to the overall protein content by adding cheap amino acids like Creatine, Glycine, Taurine, Arginine, Glutamine etc. to “bump up” the protein content. These amino acids are NOT added to benefit the user, it’s just a marketing gimmick to cheat consumers and increase profit margins.

A better approach to building quality muscle is through a foundation of whole foods and balanced nutrition. Fuel your body with lean proteins, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats. Opt for better sources of nutrients, such as pure whey, chicken, fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Not only will you be supporting your muscle growth, but you’ll also be nourishing your body with proper macronutrients.
