Several things here:
First, it’s very difficult to get fat on specialized workout drinks unless your training is lacking and those extra nutrients are un-earned. I doubt that’s true for you. The weight-gain issue is most-likely caused by something else.
Second, if you’re eating crappy foods several times per week – cookies, cereal, fast food, and the other junk you listed – don’t you think your fat-gain issue might have more to do with that than workout drinks? You’re simply eating too much. And you can’t out-train poor food choices. Now, you are a big guy and require more calories than a short 160-pound guy, but you’re clearly overdoing it if you can’t stop edging toward 300 pounds.
Also, while Surge Recovery was great for its time, we’ve greatly upgraded peri-workout formulas with the introduction of <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma. Plazma contains nutrient-partitioning, functional carbohydrates (highly branched cyclic dextrin). They are thermic in nature, meaning they help with fat loss instead of contributing to it. And of course it speeds recovery and muscle gains.
So, two main suggestions for you: clean up your diet (mom and dad won’t be too offended if you tell them you’re doing it to be healthier), then upgrade your workout drink to Plazma, or at least Anaconda.
If you’ve always had issues with carbs and easy fat gain, consider using <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/indigo-3g"target=“new”>Indigo-3G, which fixes the dysfunctional fat cells and nutrient uptake mechanisms that cause these problems. There’s a package deal available that contains both of those supplements. You can check it out here: <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/packages/plazma-reactive-pump-stack"target=“new”>Plazma Reactive Pump Stack
But step #1 is to get your diet in order. You don’t have to go on an extreme low-carb diet and start doing tons of cardio, just remove the obvious junk and plan meals better so you aren’t stuck with fast-food or cafeteria burritos.
One last thing: can you post a photo? That would really help, especially since you’re a bit of an outlier (being very tall) and it’s sometimes difficult to factor in scale weight when offering advice.
