Wow @ Mark Wahlberg including Polyethylene Glycol as an ingredient in his supplement brand Marked's Whey Protein.

A stimulant laxative to go along with digestive enzymes? That stuff is horrible for your bowels.

Just some multis (switched from Centrum to this brand called Usana) and fish oil. Haven't used any whey in over a year.

A single failed drug test would be disastrous for me. Even if I could eventually explain it away it would be more trouble than it's worth for a preworkout boost.

Yeah you really gotta find the kind for you. There's so many flavors though when you get into some of the brands. The Wal Mart/Target brands have the basic chocolate vs. vanilla, but if you try like Optimum Nutrition you have insane amounts of choices


Optimum Nutrition (Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein)
Mocha Cappuccino
French Vanilla Creme
Caramel Toffee Fudge
Chocolate Mint
Extreme Milk Chocolate
Double Chocolate
Root Beer Float
Orange Creme
Cookies and Cream
Vanilla Ice Cream
Strawberry Bananacreme
Rocky Road
Delicious Strawberry
Chocolate Malt
Tropical Punch
Cake Batter
White Chocolate
Chocolate Coconut

I stopped buying my protein from GNC (started ordering off Bodybuilding) but the great thing I always liked about GNC is that they actually let you return opened products. If you buy a protein and dont like the flavor, you can come in and trade it for another flavor as long as there's only a few scoops missing

Vit d lol

For a broke college student

Mackerels and sardines provide the omegas
Chicken turkey and eggs provide te protein (whey is more cost effective probably but ehh I like eating food)
And kale and broccoli along with fruits knock down most vitamins

I'm forcing my grandparents to take Greens Superfood though they have some fukked up habits and are aging at a fast rate. So ill try to put a spoon with avocado ginger garlic broccoli kale coconut oil banana and honey. A close friend of mines mom concocted cancer and hopefully these phytonutrients do put up a fight

To second what the other guy said you should try some different brands, whey protein flavors have come a long way in recent years. I think Hateraid works for Dymatize, and I love their rich chocolate flavor. I eat a very strict diet with little to no sugar and the chocolate is so good I actually look forward to it all day Even with just water it tastes great.

Default Re: are you taking any nutritional supplements?

^ Agreed. I went from TwinLab to ON to Dymatize and Dymatize is the BOMB. If ever I do get around to buying whey again (which I probably won't), that's the only brand I'll mess with. I've also tried GNC, Designer Whey, and I think that Met-RX and they don't measure up to Dymatize, taste-wise.

Been looking for a greens supplement coz I eat as much veggies and fruits as I can but I think I could still use some work there. Plus it can probably replace the multi. I'd do it the same way J$ does but produce ain't that cheap here.

Just a multivitamin in the morning and whey protein shake every day.

Get the "Extreme Milk Chocolate" flavor of Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold. You can't taste any powder.. it's delicious. Just tastes like a chocolate milk.
