Replace Supplement with Vegetables

  1. Replace Supplement with Vegetables


    I never waste money on supplements , let's try to replace supplements with Vegetables/Food

    First let's start with

    Protien Powder - First off I believe that we eat way too much protien 1grams per body of protien is wayyyy too much. I eat .6 grams of body weight of protien a day and I see no difference in muscle gain/muscle loss, but when I lower my protien , I have more room for carbs in my diet which boosts my energy levels way high , and my body never touches my precious protien for fuel. so just stay with eating your meats/ veggies

    2.Diuretics/water loss supplements- replace with Asparagus
    Asparagus contains high levels of the amino acid asparagine, which is a natural diuretic which flushing out excess toxins/salt from your body. Try this out and you'll see your muscles more dryer

    3. Anti Estrogen
    -Broccoli contains phytochemicals called indoles, which will convert and reduce your bad estrogen into a safer form.

    4.Testosterone boosters
    -Broccoli which lowers estrogen ,which means less aromitization in turns means less testosterone being converted to estrogen

    - raw Garlic when eaten the chemical called
    diallyl sulfide has been shown to increase LH , which in turn boosts testosterone.

    5. Preworkout- replace it with black coffee , you don't need that extra crap in the preworkout

    6. Pump Supplement-
    Salt- eating 1/8th-1/4th of a teaspoon with a good amount of water before work outs will help drive more fluids in your blood to help pump up muscles. TRY IT!
    -Watermelon/Cucumbers- high in concentration of the amino acid Citrulline which is responsible for nitric oxide production , which in turn means greater pumps

    Well here's a quick post if anyone wants to add any Vegetables to the list . Go Right Ahead!


  2. Generally agree with your sentiment bro. Sometimes people rely far to much on supps instead of real food.....

    But

    Most of us have families, work and other distractions outside of the fitness game. That stuff makes it hard to hit every veg every day that is ideal.

    For me (and honestly most people see my nutrition as stupidly 'clean') supplements are a way to cover my bases in a convenient manner. I eat more asparagus than sticky vicky could fit in her twat on a daily basis but still wouldnt nail everything optimal health.

    Your point about protein misses two things in my opinion

    1) lots of us (like me) eat higher protein than needed because we enjoy a high protein diet rather than a misguided belief its required

    2) lots of forum members spend a resonable period of time each year on anabolics which typically enables the body to make use of around 1.5g per lb bw

    For an average, “just want to be healthy”, person this would work fine. For bodybuilding purposes, throw all of the above out the window. Except #5. That’s about the only thing I agree with 100%.

  4. Hogwash. I supplement with food and my diet consists of real supplements(teh creatine bro).

  5. Yeah, I’m going to eat about a kilogram of watermelon pre-workout to get an ergogenic dose of citrulline. That’s much easier.

    Why would I eat 2+ pounds of watermelon pre-workout when I can just take 3g (a small spoonful) of citrulline that costs less than $0.25 a serving? I’m pretty sure that cucumber has a lower citrulline content (%) than watermelon, and I wouldn’t particularly want to eat a kilo of cucumber pre-workout either. As for needing to take it every day, you shouldn’t have to take citrulline (or nitrates for that matter) every day to notice effects (or to work), as they can possess acute effects.
