  2. In all honesty though. Get your potassium and the majority of nutrients for that matter from food. Nutrient-ism has taken over our diet and given us a skewed sense of healthy eating. We supplement for nutrients we are lacking while in reality we could just be eating more actual food to get what we need. With the added benefit of the other vitamins in them. Believe it or not potassium alone doesn't work as well as potassium and the other host of things that are in, say, a sweet potato.

    End rant.

    Lol I wasn't advocating anyone do what I did, people just derailed the topic and made it all about what I mentioned multiple times to be my own personal choice, and what seems to be appropriate for my diet.

    My methodology was nothing but well thought out and pre-planned.

    And please, do explain how "kinetically" they are different. Is this because bananas have more weight to them when you throw them? if so, I guess your correct.

    Very interesting. But what people are ignoring is the simple fact, as i stated before, that I AM POOR AND CANNOT AFFORD THE LUXERY OF ****ING BANANAS OR SWEET POTATOS MY FRAME HAS A BMR OF 4000 CALS AND THATS NOT CHEAP FFS. THIS IS OBVIOUSLY NOT THE OPTIMAL PROTOCAL BUT IT IS OPTIMAL FOR MY PERSONAL LIFESTYLE AT THE MOMENT.

    Ahem, excuse me. For the last time, I am not an idiot. If I am getting this kind of caution for taking potassium as a supplement I'll take note to NEVER log any anabolics...

    Fuark people you all come with you strong opinions with complete disregard to the fact that I obviously have heard everything you guys are saying about the risk of BLATANT RECKLESS supplementation of it.

    Did you guys forget that I track all of my food on a daily basis and weigh it all out down to the gram? Ish, if you guys really want to make this thread about my personal diet and supplementation decisions I'll link my flippin fitness pal.

    Is it the danger of eating it? living on the wild side of a potassium overdose? You sir, like to live on the edge.

    I'm not even gunna argue that frankly dumb and overly argumentitve statement.

    The level of scrutiny I'm getting for trying to help people is insane. I feel like I'm being put through the ringer here or am joing a frat. Ish, if I knew trying to help people with similar situations as myself I would attract so many hateful, hostile, and relentless parrots I would of never started this thread.

    Since I joined this forum I have been very active and have provided nothing but positive feedback and well-backed information.

    People like you make me feel almost backstabbed. /sigh

    I'm done responding here. I have gotton the points out that I wanted, particularly that there is a place to buy affordable bulk electrolytes. If people want to continue to attack me with naive and ignorant warnings and assuming ideas that I havn't thought about this choice, they can do so, but they are grossly underestimating someone they know nothing about.

    This patronizing and low-estimation of others is shameful. At most, I was hoping this would lead to an (educated) discussion on the supplementation of potassium and studies that go back and forth, but alas, i guess not.

    Respect to all those who were aiming at this and have PMed me. Your not all bad people

    Sorry. I just felt compelled to give my two cents. If you know the risks and how to supplement it then best of luck.

  12. I must have taken a wring turn somewhere and ended up in the girls supplements for PMS forum.

  13. I must have taken a "wring" turn as well. I think I ended up at BB.com where no one discusses anything in a constructive manner or exchanges ideas..they just play know-it-all and pile on someone.

    Aren't bananas like 69 cents a pound? And if you need 4000 calories for maintenance, wouldn't all those extra carbs and calories be of benefit?

    I would like to hear more about these supplements though, especially that mass gainer. =)

  15. Alpo, if its good enough for dogs.....

  16. Why do you say you need that much potassium? Isn't the safe sodium/potassium ratio from 2.5:1 to 4:1? That's easily achievable from whole foods.

    Potassium pills have the ability to rapidly disintegrate and enter the bloodstream before proper endocrine-dependent tissue delivery can take place. This has potential to cause cardiotoxicity secondary to hyperkalemia.

    Bananas pose no such risk because they take hours to digest and absorb.

    But alas, if you choose not to heed my advice, we have nothing more than natural selection at play.

  18. Point taken. It appears that even the Linus Pauling Institute people removed that recommendation from their site and no longer advise K supplementation without medical consult/tests.

  20. I have had potassium prescribed to me by my doctor, so I have some experience with this. You really need a blood test to see if you are deficient. You can't just assume you need so much and take it on your own. That can be extremely dangerous.

    If you had made this thread and said you wanted to take 1 serving of that a day, this thread would have went totally different. You were throwing around supplementing 3.5-4g.

    The fact of the matter is this: people throughout this thread have been trying to help this kid. He's arguing with us that he has the best solution. If he already has the best solution and is resistent to advice, why did he bother to all in the first place?

    Besides, bananas are dirt cheap.

    The facts are this, actually: I'm not a kid. And this thread was never even supposed to be about me. Read the posts. I like that solution though "you have to eat bananas!!!" Another stupidly angry and persistent parrot.

    Maybe I'll start a potassium supplementation log... That should be fun

  24. I just suggest you take what Cooper said into account.

    I'm not sure on how the tablets are formed or the matrix's they used but if they leach out too quickly from the tablet (in high doses) they can kill tissue inside the body. Supplement companies are aware of this and formulate their capsules to ensure they do not secrete too much potassium to quickly.

    That is why non-prescription K+ supplements are restricted at ~99mg.

    It just doesn't seem like a safe idea to me.

    Counting calories in actuality, gives you completely useless information, because the numbers your counting are most likely ( like 99%) incorrect.

    But, it helps some people keep control over eating, or I should say, micro managing their eating, and lead to positive results.

    But as far as real accuracy, the numbers you see on a food label are pretty worthless.

    Another note, if your so poor, you most likely can't afford a legitimate edee test, done in a laboratory setting, so you bmr is inaccurate as well. Possibility it can be close, depending on which method you use. Most use Harris Benedict, which is outdated, and pretty inaccurate.
