Might add english isn't my 1st nor 2nd language. Therefore my question about the protiens, and just to be sure: when you say "multis" you are talking about multivitamins, right? And on multivitamins, any specific product recommended? Or is it the same case that you described with proteins, where there is no big difference?


Yeah I am referring to a multivitamin. This is a little different because you want to at least check the profile and make sure it's appropriate for an active male. Also the form of vitamin is important for absorption. Look for something chelated. It's when a vitamin is broken down to it's smallest form and bonded with a protein ring. Your body will at least treat it like a food source. Megamen sport at GNC is good.

I wanted to get back at you and tell you to try Armageddon by Star Chem Labs. Possibly the best pre-workout powder out there right now. Only product that doesn't deplete NO levels the longer you use it. Plus the Hydrotrans complex is insane. Same stuff they use in IV drips at hospitals to increase nutrient uptake. Crazy energy and sustained ATP. Good shyt.

1- Protein

Follow that formula in that order.

I like Optimum Nutrition. I bought some GNC whey protein (flavorless). It was decent. The Optimum Nutrition kind I bought actually seemed a little sweet and it seemed to mix a lot better. And it was cheaper. I really like it because I can add it to my foods (like my cereal in the morning) and it doesn't affect the flavor much.

But yeah, it's probably all the same or very similar. If anything, main thing I look for is what percentage of protein is in each scoop and how much of it is additives (aspartame, splenda, coloring, whatever.)

I mostly stick to whey protein and a daily vitamin. I don't really care for creatine or NO.

Good info!

Great thread lots of useful info. Am not taking any supplements and am eating more then ever and lifting more then ever but have still lost a stone in the past 3 months. I am gonna be looking at getting some supplements to get some more weight from the nutritionist at our next camp in December. Will ask you if its any good once she recommends something.

Hateraid, I've been advised that sleep goes hand-in-hand with a proper diet. Optimally, how many hours should one be sleeping each night? Does continuity matter here? If a person doesn't fall asleep at the same time each night(+/- 4 hours ), would this have any effect?

I'll be honest, that's a realm I know little of. From what I've heard optimal sleep is about 6 to 8 hours. But the most important time is your REM cycle. That's when your in the most deepest state of sleep. That's when the most cellular repair and regeneration takes place. But for most REM time is about 2 to 3 hours. Getting to bed at the same time helps to increase the REM state of sleep and maximizes your bodies ability to repair and feel more rested.
Oddly, during sleep your muscles are actually catabolizing (breaking down). That's why body builders take protein before bed. Some go as far as setting their alarms to wake up every 3 hours to have protein to prevent catabolizing in their sleep.
But all in all consitant sleep is great for overall health.

i hate it when people write "addicting", what is the reasoning behind this? its not even an abbreviation. the word is addictive.
