Is Appeton Weight Gain a Waste of Money?

Have you seen the Appeton TV Commercial? Can a supplement alone help you gain weight? Read about my honest view on Malaysia’s popular weight gain supplement – Appeton Weight Gain.

If you are living in Malaysia, I’m sure you’ve all seen those Appeton Weight Gain (Adult) TV Commercials. They are funny alright.

Kelakar jugak la but does it actually work that way? Just 1 or 2 scoops per day cukup untuk menambahkan berat badan? The answer is No! A weight gainer alone doesn’t won’t “really” help you gain weight. So if you are one of those people who have bought Appeton or any other weight gainer, this post is for you.

So..How to Gain Weight or Bulk Up Lah?

Well in summary, you need 3 things: 1) A Reason to Grow, 2) Food to build and yes, lastly 3) Supplements do help. You can do without supplements but the first two are crucial! Lemme me break it down for you.

  1. Muscles need a reason to grow. When we talk about weight gain, we usually (or always) mean muscle gain….no one wants to really gain fat. Hitting the buffet and stuffing yourself with supplments IS NOT A REASON ;)… Weight training ataupun senaman mengangkat berat or main best is the catalyst for weight gain. Putting your muscles through stress and strain (the workout) makes your muscles literally wanting to grow. Why? Think of it as a defense mechanism. Your body is thinking that it needs to get stronger in order to sustain the “new” workload. That is why you need to continually diversify and increase the weights – to continually give your body a reason to keep on get bigger.
  2. Building Blocks or food. Yes this is where makanan dan supplements like weight gainers come in. Note this – Once your body wants to grow YOU THAN NEED TO supply it with “stuff” that it can build on. Food lah. What kind? Well typically you need carbs and protein (the staple ingredients of weight gainers). When? Well a must before ad after your workout and also throughout the day. So make sure you get your 5-7 meals per day. Wanna gain weight? Than yeah you gotta eat!
  3. Supplements do help. Tapi ingat, makanan tambahan don’t work magic. There’s nothing special in weight gainers like Appeton. They are mainly loaded with carbs (dextrose – think hospital drip), combination of proteins and yeah some fat as well. Thats usually it. So why buy them? well its up to you but they are convenient for pre and postworkout meals. I persoanlly use whey protein supplements daily. Why? Coz they are convenient and give me what I need. So remember to know what you are buying and know what you need ;) Other suppls like creatine and glutamine are great as well but, in my opinion should only be used second to weight gainers.

So is Appeton Weight Gainer a Waste of Money?

Without weight training – YES but if used in combination with weight training and a decent nutrition plan (makanan lah), weight gainers like Appeton are good and effective as they give you want you need. That said, most weight gainers are pretty good – regardless of brand. I personally prefer US based brands like Dymatize, Champion Nutrition or Prolab..but hey its a consumers choice ;) Happy Shopping.

  • hai..emm,sy nk tny ckit..mcm mana sy nk tambhkan ckit brt bdn??sbb,brt sy sekarang cma 40kg je..tak kurg sgt ke brt sy??

  • ooh tanx for this post!
    i’m trying to gain weight as well
    and have only gained 4kg after
    two weeks ok eat+eat+eat along
    with a weight gaining product.
    a friend told me it also helps
    to eat eggs everyday.
    RAW eggs…! is this true or
    just a myth?

  • em nak tambah berat badan ni susah sbenarnya.kita kene makan berkhasiat dan lebih dari apa yg kita guna(tenaga lah) ..saya ada baca buku dari org yg berjaya ni(tambah berat badan lah)(mcm ayat penulis lah hehe).
    eat raw eggs will give you bacteria salmonela make you stomach fell pain and groawling.
    p/s : grammatical english error

  • Dude – well eggs alone won’t do…you still gotta hit the weights and give your body a reason to grow.

    Masauaafa – “kita kene makan berkhasiat dan lebih dari apa yg kita guna(tenaga lah)” yes betul but kalau macam tu “tenaga” berlebihan mostly akan menjadi lemak dan bukannya otot. Kalau nak pastikan bahawa anda lebih banyak tambah otot, you have to berlatih dengan weights (pemberat)

  • I’ve tried it before and it works..before i’m 40kg and now i’m 49kg. No harm trying coz it really work.. :)

  • hi..im just curious with myself..i eat alot but still i didnt gain weight but loss it.is it because im a heavy smoker?b4 my weight 46kg which balance with my height 157.now my weight 40.5kg..pls help me n guide me what should i do….

  • My weight was 72Kg previously but sisnce I got diabetic in less than a year, my weight now is 62Kg. I look very skinny now. Can I gain weight with the same methode although I have diabetic?

  • berat asal saya 82kg dan saya dah berjaya turunkan sehingga 77kg dengan melakukan aktiviti di GYM..Soalan saya , bagaimana untuk build muscle ? adakah dengan hanya weight training atau dengan mengambil supplement sebagai faktor tambahan ?

  • Sakh – you obviously should check with your doctor but there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to gain weight as a diabetic….you should however avoid sugar rich weight gainers.

    elle – you need weight training. Quality weight training

    shah – yes anda perlu ketiga2 untuk muscle gain: 1) pemakanan asas, weight training berkualiti dan makanan tambahan seperti whey protein, creatine, NOX etc sememangnya menolong

  • Junko: What did you do? sounds impressive, perhaps a must try for me.

    Well, curiously enough, what kind of diet should I practise if I were to gain weight.. Apart from the supplements rich in lysine, creatine, NOX and such?

  • hello nitrogenius,

    for weight gain or loss, supplement are always the last part of the equation. Firstly you need an enough coming in to create a calorie surplus but then you dont just wanna gain fat so weight training is the catalyst for lean weight gain. No weight gainer can simply make you gain muscles….its BS ;)

  • Hi Kevin. I’m trying to gain weight. i’m 15 and right now 48 KG with 175cm of height. That really skinny. The problem is my lower body is not skinny but my upper body is skinny. My leg and peha is already good. Just my lengan is skinny. I tried to do weight training at gym. I gain some biceps but not weight. Plan to go to gym after the exam on OCT. I have some problem with need to eat about 5-7 times a day. I really don’t have that much time. What do you think Kevin?

  • hai again kevin,nice to see you,
    a)do you think about other brand than Appeton?
    well i see at grocery, Enercal and ensure? it is good to drink to increase calorie? and gain weight? cause i dont afford appeton so expensive

    b) my fren at work eat eggs like this, he dispose a yolk and just eat eggwhite? i know they want avoid colestrol, but it is yolk have more vitamin and other that whites?white have more protein only

    c) some say on internet that ingest 100gram protein daily may taxing your liver, i try to eat 3400calorie a day and just count calorie without counting protein requirement. that all, i think i’m fine that

  • nak training kene ada cara yang betul beb, kene tau pasal repetition, periodation, never train to failure and dont use high rep if you want to gain muscle and size.. you in vein when u enter the gym and do 20 reps because u use low volume, and you just increase cortisol level that can shrink you muscle,goal.

    ”COZ klu otot da injured,protein2 yg kte mkn tue akn dgunakan oleh bdan tuk repair.So hrapan la bdan nk besaw..B4 pg gym,better korunk mnum 100plus,Pepsi or coke..purata 1 tin de 44kcal energy..so t bley r push out the limit cket..”

    mana patut minum coke,pepsi,100plus? you know what, that’s a toxin substance containing in a can of coke like aspartame, asesulfame or whatever called.it will kill your abiltiy to gain weight,increase cortisol level,blah blah….

    eat 3/4 egss will give you more fat and feel bloating,so just use white eggs better,if you can tolerate the taste of its after boiling thats.I’m better eat oat+milk+peanut butter that contain 800cal.

  • helo kevin.
    i’m extremely sad cos i’ve trying to put on weight but i failed. my boyfriend left me and no one think i’m attractive enough. i became depressed everyday and it effects my personal life and my confident.

  • hi! im ectomorph.but all my siblings even my cousins are all big.endomorph.my metabolism works very fast.when i got older i loss gain.im so skinny.and i want to gain weight.what should i do?

  • haii..tumpang tanye..berat badan saya 40kg dgn kerendahan 148cm..adakah ia berat yg ideal?..saya rasa saya sangat kurus dan kecil..family saya juga kurus2 belaka..adakah ia disebabkan faktor keturunan..jika saya berusaha untuk menambah berat badan adakah ia akan berjaya?…tolg ya..

  • ei,aku minum dutch lady full cream milk tiap tiap hari ada guna tak?i jog 5 hrs every week+some workouts..saya main dumbbell juga!14kg,beratnya!!muscle i boleh tengok la…tapi saya nak kasi dia besar lagi!skrg 60kg,173cm,cukup tak?

  • jogging tak akan membantu menambah berat badan laaa..tgk org yang kuat joging atau marathon runner, semua mereka kurus kerana tenaga hilang. semasa berlari juga tenaga tersimpan dalam otot dan lemak akan dibakar..

  • nak tnyer lah…susu weight gain tuh,tmbahkan berat bdn kan…..thats mean,kita akan jdik berisi jugak ke……sy nk tambah berat n nak nmpak berisi skit sbb terlalu kurus….

  • how should i gain weight?..i dont know how,i eat my meal 3 times a day but just a little amount of food every meal because my stomach felt full already in just a little meal only.i felt nauseatic if i eat too much but i want to gain weight.what should i do to gain weight?pls help me.. .

  • mcm mane nk tambah berat badan, sedangkan saya nie kuat makan 4-5 kali sehari. keturunan saya semua kurus dan saya nie aktif dalam sukan bola atau futsal.

  • im very skinny and im planning to buy appeton weight gain until i red this..

    thanks so much kevin!!!

  • hello abg kevin-sy nk tnya..apakah jenis senaman yg sesuai untuk orang kurus seperti sy??sy niy kuat makan tp xnaik2 jugak..dan sy pelik coz my friend ckp sy dlu xdelah kurus sgt..tp smkin umur sy mningkat sy smkin kurus plak..ini pnyakit ker??sy harap abg boleh mmbntu sy-diameter tgn sy kuruss sgt..malu gler-pleaz reply!!

  • hii abg kevin…sy da masalah peha besar bdn da okey cuma bhgian peha tu yg susah sket nk turun knape yea?dulu sy pnh la diet n bwt exercise jogging mmg peha saya kecil skit..tp bila sya kurang mlakukan exercise peha saya kembali spt asal..knape yea?

  • @kajor – untuk tambahkan berat badan, perlunya senaman beban or weight training untuk merangsangkan tumbesaran otot.

    @bb – car badan menyimpam dan membakar lemak ditentukan oleh genetics badan. kita tak bole nak spot reduce lemak pada bahagian tertentu…. but if bb teruskan usaha untuk membakar lemak secara berterusan, tentunya akan membakar pada bahagian peha jugak nanti.

  • keturunan saya juga kurus giler – giler…

    tapi selepas pi gym selama 5 bulan, badan saya jadi lagi solid..dan baik minum protein drpd minum appeton ..dua -dua sama harga rm 95 ….
    minum protein and angkat berat yg btul – betul berat….

  • hi.. you’ve mentioned in your article about your preferred brand “Dymatize, Champion Nutrition or Prolab”. I seached for it in the internet but I found a lot of products. Can you recommend a specific brand name for me. Also, how many hours do I need to spend for work out in a day?
    I’m hoping for your immediate response.
    thank…^^

  • hello, based on my experience, any US weight gain product will do the job …. make sure that you are able to read the nutrition labels and know what you are looking for in terms of calorie needs, carbs, sugars, protein etc ….

  • hi.. saya berumur 31 tahun.. tinggi 198cm dan berat bdn 58kg.. saya mempunyai berat badan yg tidak ideal dgn ketinggian saya.. saya ingin bertanya.. adakah kadar metabolisma saya tinggi.. dan oleh sebab itu bdn saya susah untuk mendapat berat yang ideal? saya makan secara normal.. saya juga perokok tegar.. bolehkah kita mengurangkan kadar metabolisma bdn dgn mengambil ubat ubat tertentu?

  • hai, kevin zahri. saya sebelum ni pernah menjalani PLKN. Semasa di sana saya telah menjalani pemeriksaan kesihatan. Pada masa itu berat saya 48 kg dan tinggi 168cm. Doktor telah memberitahu sepatutnya berat saya boleh mencapai sehingga 55 kg.

    Jadi saya telah makan banyak setiap hari yang kononnya dengan makan banyak boleh menaikkan lagi berat badan. Tetapi sehingga kini berat saya masih lagi 48 kg.

    Apa masalah saya sebenarnya Kevin ?

    Saya ada terdengar “Orang gemuk kalau nak kurus memang senang, tetapi orang kurus kalau nak gemuk memang susah”.

    Sejauh manakah kebenarannya Kevin ?

    Hope you can reply this comment.

  • owh kevin..only God knows how depress i am being skinny. people keep saying that im thin-thinner. owh..how to gain weight safely and fastly? for your information, when im pranatal, my mother was suffered from TIBI.so, does it influence my physical traits-weight,skinny?

  • so maksudnya aku kene wat exercise like weightlifting tu lah n then makan weight gain ni so that barulah beart boleh naek?mcm tu ke?tapi bila berat da naik bdn kite mcm mane?gemok ke?

  • @Ed Bettencourt, feroz ahmad, nurol, naziff – thanks for your comments.

    To gain weight you cannot makan ubat or makan semata2 kerana badan perlukan sebab untuk “membesar” …. anda perlu lakukan weight training untuk merangsangkan tumbesaran otot/badan. Tanpa weight training ataupun senaman beban, usaha makan atau ubat/supplement sia2.

    If berminat, schedule a personal consultation session or training with me supaya you can learn the proper techniques etc.

    Hope to see you all soon.

  • hye..tinggi sy 160 dan berat hanya 47kg…mcm2 sy search ttg menambahkan berat badan ni..sy pernah try susu weight gain tp nothing at all la..ermm betul ke kalau selalu jogging kite xdpt tambah berat badan? ape senaman yg sesuai untuk golongan yg ingin tambah berat badan?

  • jogging ialah senaman aerobic, anda perlukan anaerobic exercise spt weights lifting untuk tambah berat badan.

    dn janganlah berharap minum satu tong weight gain product saja dh dapat result. at least a year, good diet + training

    Harap maklum.

  • Saya sekadar berkongsi cerita byk member2 yang cuba utk menmbah berat badan dan ternyata ia agak sukar berbanding utk mengurangkan berat. Apa2 pun usaha yang berterusan disamping penggunaan produk yg sesuai amat penting dan hasilnya tetap positif walaupun mengambil masa yang agak panjang, contohnya my friends gain their weight lbh kurang 2kg dalam sebulan, kira ok dah tu kan? Yang penting kena betul caranya..

  • hai…saya sedang mencari cara-cara utk menambah berat badan sbb sgt kurus…saya harap ebook tips utk menambah 5kg berat bdn dr KEVIN ZAHRI dpt membantu….harap segala email saya dpt dibalas dgn bantuan KEVIN sendiri..

    saya juga ingin tahu sama ada supplement weight gain yg dijual HALAL atau tidak???coz im MUSLIM…:)

    thx in advance for answering….:)

  • Kalau ingin naikkan berat badan, konsumsi makanan dengan protein tinggi, (chicken breast, beef, egg white, oat, red beans, etc). Lebih baik kunjungin website fitness untuk mengetahui pola makan yang baik dan benar. http://www.duniafitnes.com or http://www.bodybuilding.com.

    Tidak ada naik badan dengan instant, just drink a milk whole day..? Itu hanya iklan dan akan menguntungkan perusahaan saja.

    Kalau mempertanyakan halal atau tidak, lebih baik jangan konsumsi, karena kebanyakan para pengguna tidak memikirkan halal atau tidak, mereka hanya memikirkan otot mereka bisa tumbuh dengan cepat.

  • Hai kevin. i just nk taw, i ada tgk product from website maugemuk.com utk supplement tambah berat badan. i just nak taw website ni betul k tipu..sape2 ada info tentang website ni tlong ye

  • salam semua. saya ada tips untuk naik kan berat badan. seperti yg saudara kevin terangkan, badan memang memerlukan sebab untuk naik/turun. so senaman adalah jawapan yg paling tepat. untuk naikkan berat badan cara tradisional.. 1)mkn 5bji telur separuh masak(4biji putih shj + 1biji termasuk kuning) kuning telur tidak digalakkan byk krana kolestrol tinggi. 2)mkn pisang 4-5biji sehari. lakukan selama 6minggu + senaman gym atau lain2..

  • bro zahri…i’m looking forward to gain weight n build body….presently, i got too skinny body…also, i got weak appetites n i guess only a supplement can help me on this…need ur advice bro…TQ

  • Kepada yang kurus tu, meh saya nak cakap awat hang kurus…

    gini..awak makan banyak, tp still kurus.
    Hal ini adalah kerana, metabolisma (metabolism) tubuh anda adalah sangat tinggi.
    apakah itu metabolisma?
    metabolisma ialah proses yang mana makanan yang dimakan, akan digunakan/ dibuang oleh badan,
    Jadi, kalau kadar metabolisma anda tinggi, makan lah banyak mana pun, tak naik jugak punya.

    Kenapa tak naik? Sebab makanan (specifically, the nutrients) yang diambil x digunakan untuk membina tisu/ otot (muscle) dalam badan, instead dibuang.

    So, kalau da makan banyak tuh, sila la bina otot sket. (i.e. joging ke..workout ke)

    kepada yang kurang selera, Weight Gain (eg: Appeton’s) ni ade nutrient yg ok untuk penambahan berat, so xyah la terasa ‘forced’ untuk makan bnyk2. Minuman ni dan makanan yang utama korg makan dlm seharian rasenye da cukup.
    (appeton weight gain tuh, botol kecik rm63, org kate vanilla kureng sedap, so amek la coklat)

    btw, ni komen hanyalah dari org yg buat research sndri2 dari internet, kalau ade silap, mintak maaf,dan saya sgt2 menghargai kalau yg membaca boleh betulkan saya.
    (bnyk lagi saya nak share nih tp mcm lebih2 pulak..sorry yer panjang sgt)
