For my daily workout can I drink ensure plus and boost?

Yes: I assume you are trying go gain weight or muscle mass after a workout? Ensure plus and boost contain a large amount of calories and protein. Drinking one of each after a workout shouldn`t cause a problem. ...Read more

Will ensure plus help me gain weight 25 pounds in about 6 months?

Will ensure plus help me gain weight 25 pounds in about 6 months?

Depends: If you keep ur regular meals stable, could use 3-6/day to add protein calories (better be working out or will just convert to fat). Likely much easier & cheaper overall to use powder protein (usually whey best), and make shakes or fortify other usual drinks w/protein ~20-60grams/day, depending on ur weight now. (don't over do it-->kidney risk & fat conversion risk). ...Read more

A matter of balance.: To gain a single pound, you must eat 3500 calories more than you use. This would translate to an increase in calories of 500/day to gain one pound in a week! continue to be sure that your extra calories are nutritious, not junk. Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, almond butter on whole grain toast, smoothies are other good examples. You probably don't get much sympathy, but it can be hard to gain! ...Read more

Are boost shakes better than ensure ?

Are boost shakes better than ensure
?

Both are good: Both ensure and boost have about the same number of calories (250) as well as more in the plus varieties. Both suppy good amounts of protein, and can be used if you are lactose intolerant or need a gluten free diet. Cost and taste could be a factor, and are both better if chilled. My patients seem to like them both about the same. Consider carnation instant breakfast if money/taste is a concern. ...Read more

Asking for general T boosting..please if u cud help

Aromasin: Aromasin is used to treat certain types of breast cancer. As a 25 year old male it is unlikely you have breast cancer but it has happened. I presume T is testosterone. If so, have your doctor send you to a lab to get your testosterone measured. If it is normal - most likely - do not take any testosterone! As for clomid - NO! Like anything else in life "too much of a good thing is no good for you ...Read more
