tired of blowing money on supps!
Alright, so after I'm done with my current arsenal of supplements, I plan on cutting way back. I have slowly learned that I do not need every supplement under the sun and most are just a waste of money. So here is what I am thinking about cutting down to:
Essential Fatty Acid Oil
I do not respond to creatine so beta-alanine is kinda my replacement for it. Do I really need the l-leucine since i will be getting plenty of it from my protein intake? anything you would add? drop? thanks

Drop Animal Pak,EFA and L-leucine. Also Beta-Alanine and waxy maize are not essential. For a Multi get Adam by Now.

At your age supplementation generally is not going make a big enough difference to spend a lot of money. Supplement your diet yah, amino's and things like that are just forms of food really. You learned a lesson good for you. Now maybe others will learn off your example.Mind and Muscle Board Representative I am not a physician and any advice is solely based on personal experience with various products

bb.commers love the pak. I don't take multi's. I would keep the fish oil, whey, BA and a ACES and a B-complex. Or just get a multi.

hey i'll bet i'll be a hell of a lot less bloated too from cutting all my supps hahaha hopefully

I haven't taken anything more than a multi, vitamin C, and fish oil for a good 4-5 months. No loss in strength, definition, etc vs spending an assload of money on supplementation. Even whey protien isnt essential if you get a good meal in after your workout...although it certainly helps in a pinch and it can be cheaper than whole food protiens.
I do like my 'old standby's' like Cissus, Creatine, Uni-Liver, etc...I do feel they provide a benefit, even if its mostly motivation to not waste my money

thought this was going to be a thread that we get to ***** about supps that dont work out for you, like they do for others--so my lastest waste of money furazabol,gave me wicked stomach pain,I was thinking it would stop but after 3 day had to quit

I just cut down too. All I take is a multi, whey, fish oil, creatine mono, and a pre workout supp, currently RPM. Any twice a year an epi cycle with post cycle therapy. Keeps me looking mean.

if i had the money i would add the vitargo, but the job is to spike the insulin and replenish what was lost during workout, simple dextrose at the local health food store does the trick
b-complex (never tried animal pak)
bcaa's (they do help but no necessary)
and of course food..............

My basics are: Protein, Fish Oil and a multi. I have bulk Cissus on hand too. My top supplement is Fish oil.

I'm a fan of BCAA's. They're just so damn anti-catabolic!
