    Anyone have anything to say about this stuff?

    It's on sale somewhere right now and I'm thinking of getting it.

    I just piitb for the 20 dollar sale price. Can't beat an 8 gram amino blend for that price. I'd say it LOOKS worth it. The extra taurine and glutamine may pay off as well. Well see!

    At first I was interested, but then I thought about it and figured why would I want to pay $20 for a handfull of aminos? I'd rather eat something!

    I really think we spend way too much time/energy thinking about the various forms of protein when really it's mostly similar. You probably won't notice the difference in effects unless you use it consistently over a period of years.

    I don't know about you, but I'm not going to pay for a supplement for multiple years to see results. I'd rather adjust my diet so that I can live with the change and make it a lifestyle. Plan ahead like carry packs of jerky or peanuts.

    People will probably argue these pills would be handy in a pinch when you had no food or needed a quick amino boost, but really, are you going to notice a difference in a week, a month, a year? Maybe better for a cut, but again, whole food would be more filling and satisfying in that case as well.

    I chose not to buy this time, hopefully I'll be rid of my supplement addiction soon.

    I've been curious about amino supplements. I haven't taken any in years, and I have recently cut protein out of my preworkout shake. No matter what kind of protein, it kills my stomach in the gym and subsequently my workout. I was thinking maybe these would be a good source of preworkout amino acids to make up for cutting out the protein source. Also if I eat anything within an hour of lifting I get sick, so I keep my last meal before the gym at an hour and a half.

    Well I think the amino supplementation has stood the test of time. Whether you take them with meals to enhance nitrogen retention and nutrient shuttling or pre/post workout to ensure a speedy recovery. I think they will speak for themselves. It doesn't get much more convenient then putting pills in your mouth and swallowing. I'm sure plenty of the big timers would tell you they're a valuable staple in their diets. My 2 cents.

    What big timers take protein pills as a staple? It was all the rage way back when that was all that was available, but there is more convenient ways to get the types of supplemental doses needed. Whole food trumps any of this stuff, and the "big timers" will tell you that over and over again. If you don't have that nailed 110%, you're only going to get marginal results, fluctuating up and down 1-3 lbs of real mass each year.

    There is no magic pill that makes you anabolic to any real degree (other than roids), just promises of "something better" that will never happen.

    Have you tried eating egg whites ~1hr pre-workout with toast or a bagel? Whole foods will dominate pills/shakes in terms of results, and it's easier to maintain consistency.

    I have normally opted for some faster digesting protein like tuna and wheat toast. I'll have to give egg whites a try though. I was told they're not as bioavailable in raw form so that's generally why I've avoided them.

    But hey look at Gaston from Beauty and the Beast! Lol. That mofo eats raw eggs!

    Eggs are great! Look at any real bodybuilder's diet and you'll see they eat about a dozen eggs a day on average (mainly whites, but 2-3 yolks as well).

    You can always buy liquid egg whites, they're pastuerized and safe to add to anything, and they're cheap (pretty much tasteless too).

    I recommend Costco or Sams, but yeah, it should be available in a Meijer, Kroger, or something (gosh I miss Meijers...). All Whites is the name brand, but we get the Costco brand for less $.

    Real eggs are a little bit better though IMO.
