    No.

    Your body has two nervous system - a sympathetic and parasympathetic system. You activate the sympathetic system for catabolism while parasympathetic system for anabolism. The only way for you to grow is through anabolic pathway. Remember, everyday your body is put on a stress mode and the more you add in to that, the more activation on sympathetic. This means - stress at work, traffic, deadlines, and even merely EATING and BREATHING is part of a stress on your body. Then now you are supposed to be resting your body to promote recovery and growth, you pushed more stress on the body activating your SNS further, and guess what happen - catabolism. Your body tears down more muscle, which are already torn down, then when you are supposed to work out, it's already torn down and further going to get damaged without giving a rest or time to grow and recover. Over time, this will lead to fatigue and chronic inflammation.

    Your food intake is irregular.

    Your sleep pattern is irregular.

    And now you want to introduce a bigger variable - mass gainer for muscle growth?

    I can guarantee you, your money will go to waste. Fix your food intake. Fix your sleeping pattern. Optimize your recovery. Create a healthy routine. THEN, let's talk about supplementing your program.

    It's like saying, oh hey, let's buy big fancy TV but we don't have electricity and lock for our house.
