01-06-2003, 02:10 PM
I"m just curious, It's time to go restock your supplements. What do you buy? How much do you spend on the average after each trip to your GNC or whatever? Here's what i get. what am i lacking in your opinion?
Nitro Tech protein powder in Vanilla (any one know of any better stuff that that)
Flax seed oil
on occasion i'll grab an ECA stack
Liquid creatine for runners
That usually comes out to around 250 dollars canadian. ( i know.. wow)
What am i missing? let me know what you guys buy!

It's my understanding that liquid creatine is not good, go for the powder.
Biotest Classic Grow! (chocolate)
Mesotech Bars for meal emergencies
CLA (trying it out...we'll see)
That's all I can think of for now!

I'm lucky to get all my supplement through my gym (it gets less expensive!)
What I daily eat is;
- Protein shakes
- Fish oil
- lots of different vitamines and calcium, iron etc
Occasionally I take
- ECA Stack
- Creatine and
Now what did I forget? Oh yes I eat a protein bar once in a while if I'm on th road (and cannot get better food).
I used to own my own supplement store so I've got my own stash. /forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif
amino acid tablets
sometimes powdered creatine
sometimes flax oil
and of course my vitamins & minerals

i'm about identical w/ Krypto, i use:
protein powders (Muscle provider from Beverly or Parrillo)
amino acid tablets (BCAA's)
Olive and flax oil
a Multi vitamin
01-08-2003, 11:08 AM
Right now all I use is a multivitamin, occasionally some flax oil, and protein powder/bars. My new fave bar is the Detour by Designer Whey. I know bars aren't ideal but I work 12 hr. shifts and all we are technically allowed is one 30 minute lunch break (!!!) so I eat the bars at work to avoid long periods without food.
I'm considering investing in some creatine but I've heard conflicting things about this for women. Anyone out there have an opinion on that?
01-08-2003, 11:52 AM
I use a multivitamin, protein powder, occasionally protein bars, creatine, dextrose (in post-workout shake), vitamin C. I am going to start glutamine and possibly ZMA. When I start cutting I'll add ECA stack.
lifterchick- read the article on creatine in the nutrition section at the top. No reason why anyone can't use it. I'm having good results from it.

and i am consdering liver tabs as a result of a conversation with margie! /forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif
adding: ok, i have now added the liver tabs after talking with margie and krypto about them.
01-08-2003, 12:22 PM
I'm not familiar with liver tabs. What are they and what is their benefit?
01-08-2003, 10:18 PM
I use protein powders ( Whey Delicious by NHF) and sometimes bars when life gets too busy. Glutamine, flax oil, olive oil, and multivitamin w/ minerals including chromium and vanadium. I would imagine when all is said and done, if I were to purchase all on the same day it would be about $250 Cdn.

Newbie delurking.... I got sucked into reading Krypto's journal (I'm another "fan of big eating") and am currently in the middle of "10 weeks to Freaky Legs". Mainly follow BodyRX, with my own tweaks.
Supplements: creatine, glutamine, flax and coconut, B-complex and zinc. I am about finshed with Bomber Blend (an excellent protein powder) and may try Grow! next; I also use Night Formula blend from www.proteinfactory.com. (http://www.proteinfactory.com.)
No bars, ever.

Supplements: creatine, glutamine, flax and coconut
As a matter of interest, why coconut oil? Isn't this packed with saturated fat? Or does it have benefits that I am unaware of?
01-09-2003, 03:36 PM
On coconut: there are some recent studies that show it has fatburning properties (it's a wonderful source of medium chain fatty acids). The old studies that showed it as being saturated are evidently flawed; what actually happened was that artificially hydrogenated coconut oil was used, and naturally results were skewed.
I will say, however, that since I'm not really in a fatburning mode right now (I maintain around 12%) I probably will not buy more. It was more of an experiment than anything.
