I Lost 10 Lbs! I Lost 5 Lbs!

List the supplements you are taking and the reason why you take them.

Currently, I am supplement free. However, in the past I have taken the standard supplements and observed good results:

  • Whey Protein
  • Creatine

I’m using New-Whey by IDS Sports. Not that great tasting, but 42 grams of protein in a shot isn’t that bad when dumped in a bottle of water and sipped on over a couple hours.

Other than that, Mass Tabs, also by IDS. Helps with the pumps.

I Lost 5% I Burned 50K Calories! I Lost 10 Lbs! I Lost 5 Lbs! I Burned 25K Calories! I Ran 100 Miles! I Burned 5,000 Calories!

Only two:

Atlarge.com’s Nitrean-the best tasting protein drink ever, combination of whey and casein (for after a workout)
Syntrax Necter-whey. Don’t really care for it, but it’s a nice alternative to just chocolate, vanilla or strawberry all the time.

I’ve tried plenty of supps, but I take EAS protein powder, fish oil, and multis. Sometimes I’ll throw in Tribulus Terristis to mix things up, but I don’t use it much anymore.

I’m currently on Muscle Milk (Chocolate) and creatine to help build mass.

Right now I’m only taking the muscle milk after workouts but starting tomorrow I’m going to take Muscle milk as a meal replacement and take it again after workouts—I heard this works best. I’m still debating..

I am heavy on the Animal products..

Nitro Pre-Workout and Post workout fast easy protein

Stack on weight lifting days

Stack and M-Stack on reaction cycling days. I really gives me a boost in energy and concentration

I am trying or have tried Ultimate Nutrition products here in the U.K. I currently use Whey Protein with skimmed milk for additional protein and Metressyn for my post-workout carbs/protein.

I also take a multi-vitamin, some glycosamine sulphate (well I am over 40…) and a vitamin C/Zinc pill daily.

I tinkered with Creatine, tried some Tribulus Terristis, additional amino supplements, some NO boosters (L-Arginine), liver tablets, and some other bits and bobs. The jury is still out – I decided to keep things simple after a recent 12-week cycle with various supplements. Have I noticed a difference? No – apart from spending less money!

hmm, I don’t take anything. I’m new to working out. I realized what a fat ass I had become and how hot I had once been and want to be again one day. Ha ha!

Anyway, since I’m new to all of this, maybe one of you can fill me in on why your taking supplements and maybe if I should or not. They’re not bad are they, like steroids? I don’t want to take anything bad. I don’t even take a vitamin!

Cytosport Complete Whey: for protein needs

Creatine: to support muscle bulk

BCAA: to prevent muscle breakdown & support growth

Nutrabolics Deca Stack: pre-workout NO boost (will discontinue when finished, as cheaper products are available without the caffeine, which I hate)... probably go to a cheaper AAKG… (arginine alpha-ketoglutarate)

Flaxseed Oil: essential oils

Multi-vitamin: essential goodness

Tons of water!

nickbsd, just curious where you “heard” this about Muscle Milk? If you do a little research you’ll find there are better options out there.

I Lost 10 Lbs! I Lost 5 Lbs! I Burned 5,000 Calories! I Burned 5,000 Calories! I Lost 20 Lbs! Pants fitter-inner. I Lost 10 Lbs! I Lost 5 Lbs!

I take the following:
Multivitamin (like a backup in case I don’t eat enough fruits and veggies in the day)
Fish oil (DHA for your brain!)
Calcium + Vitamin D (healthy bones)
B-Complex + Vitamin C + Folic Acid (energy)
Green Tea Extract (energy)

I’ve had problems with sustaining my energy levels throughout the day, so my fitness-guru friend recommended adding in the B-Complex and Green Tea Extract.

I take Whey Protein (from Optimum Nutrition) between 1 to 3 times a day depending on how much I have worked out (I always take it after my workouts or after meals)

I take BSN No-Xplode before every workout. Usually 1 dose in the morning (at 5AM before going for my daily run/bike/swim) and I take 2 doses if I go for an extra work out in the evening.

I found that No-Xplode gives an incredible boost. It is recommended to take it 30 to 45 minutes before you work out and at least 2 hours after having eaten and not eat for 1 to 2 hours after taking it.
I usually follow this recommendations, and it always work wonders for me. I feel strong without feeling over exited.
If I go for a long bike ride (>2 or 3 hours) I usually take a bottle of it with me, and drink before I know I’m going through a tough part of the ride.

I have tried different other supplements, without feeling the same effects, so I’m sticking to these 2 right now (especially that they tend to cost a little bit, so if you stack them, your budge might go up rather quickly)

Animal Pack = Multi-Vitamin. I take it once aday about an hour before work out.

ON Whey = Protein. I take this about twice a day. Once in between breakfast and lunch as a meal. Then after work out

Ive thought about taking something like No-Xplode but i’m still not sure
