    Lotta lousy products on that list. I think the Optimum Whey, Jack3d and Stak are the only ones I'd touch.

    Good categories though - I just wouldn't consider popularity or sales the best way to determine which supplements are the best. I see too many skinny-fat poseurs using NoXplode to give it any credibility.

    Man, you forgot CL's Green Magnitude for Creatine Mono. For price, amount of servings, mix-ability and taste it really can't be beat.

    Green Mag isn't Creatine Monohydrate.

    Ahh, my bad man. It's a creatine chelate/mag(nesium) matrix -- sorry for my confusion. I guess I've been using creatine for so long ingredient differentiation was accidentally overlooked when I posted.

    Straight whey? Yeah, better in price and taste: True Protein and Protein Factory. I used to say All the Whey, but they've been slippin' a bit lately.

    Other companies have better blends than ON too: LG's Chocolate Lipotropic and MP's Banana Cream Combat are both amazing.

    i think i've used just about everyone of those supps, but only one i consistently use now is the syntha-6.. a bit pricey in comparison to others, but great tasting. nice thread... and , it is a shame anyone knew to the supplement industry tend to gravitate towards the companies with the biggest advertising budget.. not bashing BSN, Gaspari, etc. but leaves some of the lesser known companies with awesome products for the more knowledgeable shoppers out there

    Unlike the chocolate bar or any other kind of bar, Protein bars go a long way in building one's body. In the market place so many brands of bars are available. But, the bar brought out by P90X is really one of the most effective bars available so far.

    dont get me wrong, isnt bsn syntha-6 like a very low quality protein?(never tried it, jus wut i heard) Like the amount of grams for protein and compared to the cholesterol level, is high.which like means high in a low quality concentrated whey. Iunno thats what i heard... not saying you dont know how to choose supps.. lol just wanted to add that in.

    I find it interesting that Prime is not mentioned, to me it is the single best recovery supplement that I ever took. I could literally kill myself and then hit it again the next day like I was completely fresh again, no drink or amount of BCAAs can do that for me.

    Actually it was 585.


    I like whey isolates if they dont make me sick. Some are cheap. Great for my first meal and pwo.

    I like simple creatine mono...micronized. I take glutamine, bcaas, bromelain, turmeric. Sometimes I use a stim before training like ECA stack.

    I keep it simple. Most of the success was learning to eat BETTER and the right macros for myself. Shelby Starnes a few years ago convinced me to add carbs into my diet. I never looked back.

    Shelby Starnes does amazing things for his clients. If I could figure out how to incorporate more carbs without getting flabby almost overnight, I definitely would.

    AP and Glycobol and Pslin have changed that for me. I can't pig out on carbs but I can avoid low carb.

    AP has helped a lot. Glycobol is great for cheat meals but makes me hypo with anything less than a ton of carbs. Pslin doesn't do anything for me.

    I have currently been doing about a cup of Blueberries with breakfast, a grapefruit post-workout and as many veggies as I want. That's it for carbs - but it's working fairly well. I'm weighing in at ~250 now, still have somewhat visible abs, I'd guess ~12%bf...

    Well there is a reason for that protocol working so well, no insulin release. That's very like the protocol from he OEP pamphlet...

    Well, there still is some insulin being released - I'd die otherwise.

    But you are right, I am attempting to control insulin release to my advantage. I haven't read the OEP booklet, I don't remember my tester bottle coming with one.

    No I mean with your morning meal there is no release apparently with 15 grams of carbs or less. This keeps you in fat burn for longer as that is the state you are in when your wake up.

    I've got 60g of protein and ~60g Fat to go with those blueberries, so there's still some insulin action taking place (due to the insulinogenic nature of some amino acids and fas). Lipolysis remains high because, like you said, carbs remain low, so fat and gluconeogenesis remain the primary sources of glucose.

    The interesting thing, to me, is that it has not inhibited my strength or weight gains in the slightest - I've still been making consistent gains in both.
