Use 1 with more carb: This will increase ur caloric intake. If u make ur own, add milk or ice cream. Gives u fat, sugar also.

Sure: Bodybuilding, right? As you get better in the sport, you'll actually get a feel for how much your body needs to grow while staying lean. I'm glad you're doing this -- it's a wonderful gift to yourself.
