I read that it basically ensures everything you consume reaches your muscles and is not wasted. It's pretty cheap so I am thinking about purchasing it and see how it goes.

EDIT: Did some more research on it, doesn't seem like something I will be purchasing. Post if you'd like though.
Hey mojo,

I think your research is right. I've never heard anybody back up the claims of chromium picolinate. Chromium in general may help you stay on your diet as a slight appetite suppressant, but if your goal is to put on 11 lbs, I wouldn't think you'd get any benefit worth even the cheapest money from it. I'd say find yourself a reliable creatine product, a reliable glutamine product (that is if you don't already have these, and if you shop around you should be able to find them cheap as well) and eat lots of protein. Make sure you are lifting heavy for smaller reps, because if your goal is to put on weight, high reps with lower weight will not help you acheive your goal.
