    What's you monthly supplement bill?


    I'm REALLY interested to hear this because this board above all others has the biggest supplement whores i've ever seen. Guys on here stacking 5 or 6 pricey supplements at once, lol. Not knockin you guys just you must be layin down some serious dough.

    I spend around $300 Canadian on my supplements and that's whey isolate, glutamine, multi, protein blend. I'm at the point now that i'd rather shell out a couple hundred on gear than on the newest supplement to hit the market. Their are exceptions like when they are selling ACTUAL gear as supplements, lol ie Superdrol, M1t etc.

    Honestly, I don't spend the money like I use too. As of hte last couple 6-8 months I haven't spent any money. Last time I bought something was just albuterol and 15lbs of ON whey. My billl is close to $0 monthly.


    Now if food is included in the supplement world... it would be a different story.

    I have been a bit of a supp whore at times, and I have spent a ton on stocking up on post-ban products, but for the most part I don't spend too much. I probably drop $30/month on BCAA's. I don't keep track of the rate I use it at, but I use Whey Isolate, a Multi and Flax Oil. I don't think this comes out to much.

    I just bought some Sesathin for my current cycle, but running it at half dose for liver protection/cardiac benefits, which comes out to less than $15/month. I don't consider this a big deal.

    ALCar – 1.5 grams
    L-Tyrosine – 1.5 grams
    Taurine – 3-12 grams (higher doses for combating pumps from AAS)
    Choline – 3 grams
    Citrulline Malate - 3 grams
    DMAE – 100 mgs +/-
    Fish oil, distilled for 50% EPA/DHA – 4 grams
    Green tea extract, 50% EGCG – 1.5 grams

    Not very much at all, though I eat 1lb of beef everyday regardless on whether I'm lean bulking/outright bulking/cutting whatever, I spend more on beef then supps for sure..I barely use protein powder, only when I have to. So for me, not very much, except right now I am taking Cissus for my shoulder and I love it..

    I used to be a huge supplement whore but i toned it down now, if i do see something that looks promising (from reading ppl's log, studies etc) then i'll give it a shot. I wanna try Xtend, and literally every product made by USP Labs, ALRI and Omega labs. And ya i'm still in school for my personal training certificate so i'm sure when i get that i'll be layin down alot more dough. I manage a nutrition store right now and it's half herbal half sport nutrition so being around the herbal stuff i'm learning the benefits of that stuff as well. Like probiotics and digestive enzymes could be very beneficial to a bodybuilder. I also get to try out new supplements sometimes before they are on the market :. I'm trying out this new creatine product right now called Kre-alkalyn stack, i'm liking it but i'm finding because of my size (290lbs) i literally have to double the servings. And i still got a hell of alot more from CEE.

    You gotta tell me where you buy your sups, or how much you take of each if you can take flax, protein, creatine and multis for just $20. My protein alone is over $20.

    And you're STILL a weak little ho.

    The majority of my money goes towards different types of protein. I think I have at least 8 different brands/flavors/types in my cupboard as we speak and I just ordered another yesterday.

    Well let me think about for a sec...
    Year Round Supps:
    Multi---------------------- $4
    Protein Powder------------- 15
    Grape Seed Extract--------- 4
    Liv52---------------------- 6
    Pantethine----------------- 10
    Garlic/Hawthorn Complex---- 6
    Cissus--------------------- 12
    TOTAL------ --------------$57

    I haven't even added in my acne meds and I don't want to add up all the money i spend while on cycle or during PCT, things like AAS, DNP, EFA's, curcumine, AI, SERM, Milk Thistle, NAC...the list goes on and on.

    I buy almost all powders and herbs in bulk so it's hard to put a monthly tab on those..I'd guess it would break down to about $50/month. Protein is probably close to $100/mo. Various vitamins (I think multis suck)..$20/mo.

    My wife uses some of these as well so that ups the demand.

    Outside of those I really don't go to crazy with buying the newest supp unless it is getting crazy good reviews and it fits into my plans.

    I feel better than I have in years so that justifies the expenses to me.

    I would have to say hundreds although some goes into the Prohormone/Prosteroid stockpile.

    I have 9 different flavors/brands of protien powder alone right now.

    Ditto on being older with a good job. Buying supps is kinda a sickness for me but I like it!

    The creatine i'm trying has Glutamine ethyl ester as well as sodium and potassium phosphate as some other ingredients as well. I wish the juice flavoured proteins were availible cheaper and in bigger quantities, i get tired of chuggin chocolate and vanilla down all the time. 4everfit makes and AWESOME tasting whey isolate that is mango flavoured, you can mix 3 scoops at a time and the taste is still nice. Unlike something like Nectar, 3 scoops and i'm gagging on the sweetener.

    I seriously don't even want to think about what my supplement bills likely total up to. I'm a total supplement junkie myself. It doesn't really matter whether I'm bulking or cutting, either way I'm likely running 4 or 5 different supplements at once. I've often decided that after this bulk or after this cut I'm going to cut back on the supplement use, but then something new and exciting comes out and I'm right back where I started.

    Somebody should start up a supplement addicts anonymous group. I would likely be one of the original members.

    Hi, my name is ______ and I am a suppaholic. It started with just an occasional whey shake and then a buddy of mine gave me some creatine and linked me to a web site that sells supplements for ridiculously low prices and, and (starts to sobb uncontrollably making the remaining diatribe unintelligible).

    Dont take a lot of whey since i try to get most my protein from real food. However when I do buy supps I make sure to order in bulk to get the best deals and since im lazy and dont wanna go to the store all the time.

    I average about $300.00 dollars a month. I buy in bulk every 4 months. SO it may vary depending on the prices of the supplements at the time.

    My mainstay supplements are Whey, Evopro (blend), Udo's Choice, Creatine Mono, XTend and vitamins. Usually runs about $150 - $200.00 Canadian per month for my wife and myself. Occasionally I'll add a few extras that up the cost. For example I just boght a couple of bottles of PowerFULL and some Vaporize just for ****s and giggles.

    about $50 between the chinese chemist and the thai pharmacy. Another $100 on protien shakes and snack bars and various body lubes and soaps. Most cash spent on new experimental stuff and stock piling hard to get and soon to be banned stuffs. Then there is the back of the closet, I forgot I bought it, what a waste, i should just throw it out but, I can't stuff. I figure about $30,000 over the last 10 years. OMG that's why I don't have a vacation house or a boat or a car or even a dog. ...but, you should see my collection of empty plastic bottles!

    Damn, where do you live. $100/month on food is cheap as hell. I spend close to $150 on food/week. I'm realizing food is very expensive in Boston
