Everybody around me is going to the gym and using protein and pre workouts, is this necessary? I want to get my body the natural way. Is this possible?

People who use supplements usually either don't need them, but use them Cuz of the hype, or they need them Cuz their diet sucks. Research diet plans and you can naturally build yourself

Nope and its not best thing either! Some people use it cause of busy life styles, some because they like the image! Walking around with the latest brand buzz word on there shakers.

But protein specially whey is left overs from cheese making. That can never be as good as protein from natural foods like chicken, beef and pork and it contains a lot less chemicals.  Lean Free range meats is all natural along with organic vegetables

Gym's they come in handy if you lnow what to do and can get yourself there daily but you can do rourine on here with no equipment at home and work your way up like goals...stick with it a month and buy your self a dumbell set etc

Good point Matt. Problem is, if you're trying to gain muscle there is no possible way you can get enough protein from natural food sources alone. This is why body builders incorporate protein powders into their diet. You don't have to spend a lot of money on the most expensive protein powder, the inexpensive stuff is more than sufficient.

I disagree chris unless your an all day, everyday athelete then whole food protein is enough protein for muscle growth...the whole protein use is overplayed by 'experts' who want you to buy there products...impartial experts say different, I know a few builders who I train with a lot more years more advanced than me that started using powers but consider themselves 'educated' not to use them anymore natural is there way forward... I'm by no means anti protein shakes, I dont have time to do what they do and regularly use protein shakes. ..for bulking protein alone isnt enough, high...

It is very difficult to do without the use of protein powder. If you are really building your body your muscles need protein. About your body weight in grams. So I shoot for 155 g of protein everyday. If you can accomplish this without exceeding your calorie intake that's great. If not whey or iso it is.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with whey protein shakes. Just watch out for the ones with added sugars. You can easily reach your protein intake by natural means, such as chicken breast, fish,  tuna and eggs. However, throughout the day you don't have time to make these I bet. That's where protein shakes come in. Just as long as you don't use them as your primary means of protein intake, they are great

For myself protein shakes and preworkout supps are for convenience. After working standing on foot for 8 hour days and 2 round trip commute sometimes you need a little boost. Don't feel compelled to use them but they can useful if you need them.
