My " Daily " supplements during a cut
This is my first post, so I would like to say hello to all and thank you for having me. First of all my stats are- 30 years old, 6' and 205. My supplement education is elementary at best, but I have been reading and taking notes like crazy. I was wondering what " daily " supplements everyone takes on a cut? So here are my " daily " supplements on a cut so far:
Off day: breakfast- 20 grams of whey, either an banana,cantaloupe or watermelon. Then my fish oil, multi vit, vit C, b-complex
Before dinner: 20 grams whey, apple, fish oil
Workout day: breakfast- 20 grams of whey, either an banana, cantaloupe or watermelon. Then fish oil, multi vit, vit C, b-complex
Preworkout: 20 grams of whey, 5 grams of creatine, 10 grams of bcaa, 5 grams of glutamine and either an apple, mixed fruit, or nutri grain bar
Postworkout: 40 grams of whey, 5 grams of creatine, 10 grams of bcaa, 5 grams of glutamine.
After dinner: fish oil, multi vit, vit C, b-complex
Thank you again for your help

you don't really need glutamine before a w/o, but it won't kill you. i live green tea on a cut. cheap and just suppresses my appetite a little, not too much. take it 30 minutes before you eat a meal with 400mgs of caffeine, 3 times daily.

lennoxchi, thank you for taking a look at my dail supplements. I will leave the glutamine for post w/o and give the green tea and caffeine a go.

along with your powder bcaas that you put in your shakes, you could also look into buying a bcaa supplement like purple wraath from controlled labs or bc+eaa from LG sciences. both of these have excellent tastes and come in really handy for me during a cut. i will mix these in a big bottle of water and sip on them throughout the day. they help to suppress appetite as well as fueling your body and muscles with energy and keeping you in an anabolic state.

5g of creatine BOTH pre and post is likely too much. Have you been noticing any stomach problems (ie upset stomach, extra gassy, etc.) I'd probably stick to around 2.5g w/ breakfast, 2g pre, and 2.5g post.
How much fish oil do you take at a time? What is the total throughout an average day?

I think it's important to look at your specific goals! what's your BF% and what are you trying to reach? also, in what time frame!
frankly, if you're at 20 something % bodyfat then you need to just focus on your nutrition and training! if you're in the low teens and now your stuggling to lean up then you might want some assistance from supps.

I'm not trying to knock you or your ways, just curious if you've ever observed any negative effects from such a high dose.

yeah man 400mgs of caff. is way to much in fact it is counter productive 400mgs of caff. regradless of tolerance is a toxic dose for any size person this dose will cause cortisol production which will not give a dieter the look they might be going for and will reduce any gains in lean muscle

to the op, if you're stuck at 19% and your diet and training is straight (consistant and intense) then the first thing I'd try is sesamin oil...cheap and effective!

id lose the fish oils throughout the day and take animal omega with a prebed shake. you dont want fats and carbs together plus it will save you money since you only take one omega pack a day. I would look at your diet tho and focus on getting more whole foods before spending any more on supps. You def need some egg whites with breakfast. Eggs are the most bioavailable protein on the planet.
