        This would also work.

        • Well see I've been opposed to any kind of supplement like that for a long time but after reading up on it I feel it would be the easiest/cheapest option for me at this point in time all things considered.

            nothing wrong with adding some creatine to the mix. It's cheap and it has been proven to be effective in a ton of different studies. Can you do it without creatine, sure, but that doesn't mean it's garbage: science can prove it's not.
            When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

              I was against it for a while but supplements have been pretty beneficial for me. Is it the same for everyone? I'm sure it's not but in my experience I've had more good than bad.

              Supplements aren't for everyone.

              • It just irks me to see people use chemicals to add weight and stuff. Why does it matter what you weigh and how much you bench when you're a 20 year old business major or have an office job somewhere. It just masturbation, self gratifying nonsense. I get so sick of seeing people flexing in front of mirrors at the gym. It should be about staying healthy and in shape...REALLY in shape, not just cut up and bulky. I know plenty of people that look like a body builder but can't even run a mile in 10 minutes. It's just my personal pet peeve, to each his own, but I think that peoples priorities are by and large mixed up.

                  Pretty much. I don't mind that other people do them, it's their decision. I personally would never take them, there's no way they can be good for you in the long run.

                  What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                  they get smoked.

                    I feel pretty good about my fish oil. I supplement greens as well, but I fully admit that in an ideal world I could be getting those from my diet. Bottom line is, I hate vegetables almost as much as I hate fish.

                      • Wondering if any of you guys could help me out, i'm cutting and I don't know if a hit a plateau yet or what, its been like 5 weeks, start of the 5th. The one week was spring break, i watched what i ate but did't get much workout. And last week I worked out but not my regular schedule, it was very inconsistent. I still watched what I was eating.


                        But am I taking in the right amount of calories, 1500 MWF and 1000 on TTH. MWF i do two workouts lifting in the morning, and cardio ploymetric P90x at night. And then complexes on TTH with the last 15 mins to interval running, bike, or elliptical. I don't have any cheat days. Saturday, Sunday i don't count at much but i keep track of what i'm eating.

                        Mostly what i eat is fat free milk, fat free cheese, mushrooms, olive oil, whole grain bread, natural BP, milled flax seed, honey, sesame oil, fat free greek yogurt, brown rice, broccoli, walnuts, spinach, lettuce, bell peppers, whole grain tortilla, beans, whey, tomatoes, bananas, apples, pears, tofu, water and gatorade. As you can tell i'm a vegetarian so bare with me ahha. i'm thinking about adding sweet potatoes as another carb.


                        I counted calories, then wrote down what i ate plus calories, now I'm adding a time schedule to when i eat starting this week. I'm never like starving, but if i do i grab a piece of fruit or some nuts.

                        5'7 and now 145. I started out at 155, and at then end of last week i was 142. I drink lots of water so its not water weight i'm losing, i just want to burn body fat. Its clear I burned body fat, my stomach fat went down, some more still remains. But side/lower back fat is still there.

                        Should I up the calories, since my body is getting used to it, or cause its not safe to be at those numbers, maybe add a cheat day? Should I just wait a week and see what happens?

                        Also my BMR says 2600 calories so idk? Maybe more cause I do two workouts a day 3 days a week.

                          Speaking of fish oil. What do you guys think about it? I recently heard its an appetite suppressant and if your trying to put on muscle weight it's not a good idea. I'm not so sure I believe it can be that harmful for putting on weight and I know I've read it can help put on muscle before...

                              It really doesnt do anything in terms of muscle......it is pretty important for overall heart health tho. It also keeps your skin hydrated and improves brain function. You should always take fish oil and a multi vitamin no matter what your goals are, even if your not working out at all.

                                1st off, your calories look way low......1500 and 1000 is insane. 2000 should be fine.

                                2nd, what are you cutting for? 145 is already skinny.....are you fighting or something?

                                3rd- You could have easily hit a plateau.....when you take in an extreme caloric defecit, your body can become used to it and start storing fat. This, however, should be temporary. If you keep eating a defecit, you will keep losing weight. You can help yourself out of a plateau faster by changing up what you eat or adding some more cardio, but you will get out anyway as long as you keep the defecit.
