What do you think about supplements? Do you take them, what kind if you do? I've chosen to go the all natural route. I've often thought about it. Just want your insight on it.

Supplements are not magical potions and powders. They should never take the place of a real meal. It says it in the name: supplement. It should supplement your diet, not replace it. Use them to fill in where your diet lacks.

You take them?
04 Jan
Yep. But only because of my schedule. I can only workout after work, so I am pretty burnt out already. I take something with a little bit of caffeine n.o. and beta alanine along with a whey protein shake. I use the whey protein to sip throughout the day at work as well (ideally)

Lol not using suplements isnt the natural thing. Not using ped's is called the natural way. And they are not the same thing.

Supplements are a great tool that can be used to reach goals. Which supplements should/could be used depends on the goal and the stage of reaching it.

There is so much bullshit floating arround on supplements. And alot of the supplements are bullshit too. This makes it hard for alot of ppl to weed out what they dont need to know or use.

Do you use them? I've chosen never to do it. Personal choice.

If you ask 'them' you clearly dont have alot of knowledge about supplements. Cuz them doesnt mean a thing.

I don't know anything about supplements, that's why I'm asking on this forum

I have eaten/used several protein supplements. Including amino acids and full protein products as whey shakes.

Which do you prefer? Is whey protein good for mass?
