    How many supplements is to much?


    Can i be putting to many supplements into my body? E.G

    Besides the 3-4 protein shakes a day, I use

    Craze stacked with APS Creatine Nitrate ( Pre )

    Xtend- Scivation ( During )

    Anabolic Halo - Muscle tech ( post )

    And then as recommended more creatine nitrate after the workout.

    Sounds fine. Lots of people use much more than that. Don't neglect your whole foods!
    Also.. Multi-vits are always good.

    Yes you are fine. But as the asdfvtn said, make sure you are getting in enough whole foods also. 4 protein shakes a day is a lot, you want to get some of your protein from whole foods too.

    That's probably 1/4 of what I use on a daily basis!

    Too much reliance on protein shakes.

    At the risk of repeating what's already been said,
    Do you eat any real food?
    Remember they are called supplements because they are supposed to supplement your diet, not replace your diet.

    I have to agree with TBone and toddgranit - you need to cut back on the shakes and consume more protein from whole food sources such as chicken, fish, lean beef, eggs, etc. I also think you are overdoing on on creatine. Seems like you must be going over 5g per day on workout days.

    I view it as optional. Between my BCAA's, Whey shake, casein shake, test booster, AI, GDA, pre-workout, fat burner, green tea, fish oil, multi-vitamin, I just don't have much money left for food.

    If a place is having a big deal I might do like a ten day run of food, but I think it is usually best cycled. It has some decent science behind it, but I don't know how "necessary" it is.

    If you have the cash by all means try food and see how it effects you and your results. But don't let it get in the way of supplements of course!

    Had a friend who actually was fairly jacked running just food. He lifted all the time and ate a lot. Can't imagine how jacked he'd be with more supplements

    Maybe I'll see if there are any logging opportunities out there for that "food" supplement. Be interesting to see what happened if I added that to my stack!

    I better see some double blind peer reviewed studies before I take any of that crap.

    I can't wait. I can see it now. I get home and find a box from UPS on my doorstep. Inside is a dozen eggs, a jar of peanut butter, and some tuna. The log starts now...

    These eggs smell funny...hope they are still good.

    Will post link. Only studies I know of are in rats though. I believe the original steakadrol has one human study but it was woefully short.

    I'm a classy rep and would definitely send steak in an Ice box
