dont be afraid of surgar man, eat lots of carb dense foods and try to eat every 2 hours. you should be eating everything and anything IMO.

don't bother with the weight gainer, it is just sugar and protein, if you look at the ingredients you'll see the first one is probably maltodextrin, its just and an unsweet version of dextrose

when I was bulking I used this shake:

2 cups milk
1/2 cup blended steel cut oats, not the instant kind
2 scoops ON chocolate whey protein powder
1.5 table spoon flax seed oil
1.5 table spoon olive oil
and whatever fuits i had laying around

good for around 800 cals, I drink skim so it would be more if you drank 2% or whole

i used to grind up a bunch of oats like once a week and keep them in a sealed container

I found one recipe for a weight gainer on bodybuilding.com that was like 1600 calories. But i can't find it. I did find this article tho. There are some decent recipes here that sound pretty good.
