dude you need to sort the diet. when i was your age i thought i was eating lots as well, but i wasnt. i bought loads of supps like bcaa's and glutamine and still didnt really get anywhere. you need to set a good diet which you can stick with and then be CONSISTENT. its no good eating plenty of good food sometimes, or training sometimes...if you want real results you have to train hard all teh time, eat well...all the time.
protein shakes will help, as might a good weight gainer - ie. a gainer with low gi carbs rather than sugars and maltodextrin - but overall diet is what counts.
you also seem in a hurry to pack on lots of weight quickly. as youre still young and small you will be able to put on muscle fast under the right conditions (eating well and training hard) but there will be a natural limit as to how quickly you can grow. dont overdo it by trying to eat too much or stuffing yourself with extra calories. i assume youre naturally lean so try and maintain a decent bf% when adding mass. i bulked a bit too fast and now i have to diet to cut off the fat...wish id been patient, watched my calories and put on less fat when i was bulking up.
in short: DIET. but protein powders/weight gainers may be useful...just dont put too much faith in them alone.
Good Post Agree with Kaldog . Repped!
As posted above you need to fix your diet, When I was younger, just the same, I thought :yeah im eating heaps (3 meals a day), and taking "instant mass 3000" + £100's worth of the next super supplement. I gained but diet is the key, dietery supplements are just that, a addation to your diet. Bodybuilders in the 70's etc didn't have all these powders and supplements. Hard work and lots of food.
Supplements are not needed to gain weight or in bodybuilding weight training, but many including myself find them very conveintiant and quick way of getting protein, carbs, increased recovery etc.
I recomend you work up to 6 small meals a day, when i say a meal, I mean, for an example: a chicken breast, some rice and some salad. If your eating 3 meals at the moment (probably cornflakes and sandwhiches and a propper meal) work up over a few month's changing your diet. Monitor gains, are you gaining fat or muscle? Cut back on the carbs a little if you notice excess fat gain. Also eat clean lean foods, good advice in diet forum here!
Eatining 6 meals a day can be a chore so 2 of these can consist as shakes, i.e milk, ground oats, whey and some fruit blended.
post workout whey and dextrose works well, you can add milk to up the cals'
EAT clean, regualr, train hard and SQUAT SQUAT SQUAT!!!!
Good luck Buddy
