Default Weight Gainer + Protien Shake?

Is it a good idea to take both?

It all depends. Some weightgainers suck for postworkout nutrition. Beverly International's mass maker, for example, only has somewhere around 10 grams of whey in it. I would highly recommend mixing some whey in there. Others like N-Large-2 have around 45 grams of whey so mixing more would not be beneficial. Most of the time if I'm on the go, I'll mix 1 scoop of 100% whey in with a half serving of Serious Mass. Serious Mass has 2 scoops for a serving, and somewhere around 10 servings per container. So if I take 1 scoop which has around 150 grams of carbs and a scoop of 100% whey, that's a good way to stretch out your supply.

You can take a gainer during the day and a casein at night to avoid sugar and fat.

Thats overkill man, youre just wasting nutrients. The body can only absorb so much at a time.

I think you'd find it's more economical to just buy some protein powder and then add the calories. You could mix protein powder with whole milk, fruits, flax seed oil, etc. I'm willing to bet you could get your calories and protein this way.

Remember--diet and training are the most important keys to putting on mass. Supplements just help us fill in any gaps in nutrition.
