Thank you. I appreciate that.
That was one of the things that really irritated me about the thread I was talking about - I took the time to lay out exactly what I take and why I take it, and started it off by explaining that I realize that most won't take as much as I do, but also that most don't have the health conditions I have and aren't recovering from getting hit by a car.
And I'd started my very first post off saying that I thought that things like a general health supplement regimen was a very individualized thing and should be based off of individual factors like what things or conditions a person has, has a family history of, etc.
I put 2 hours (seriously) into typing out all the details that I did and instead of it turning into positive discussion, it was just smart*** remarks about how many capsules it was and people saying stuff like 'do you really take that?' or 'you seem sincere but....' - rather than people seeming to appreciate me actually detailing things out in hopes that people could learn from my regimen and adapt it for their own purposes, it was just people acting like I was lying.
I take my daily use supplements twice per day - its a handful of capsules two times daily and people acted like it was the end of the world. 1) It doesn't affect them how many capsules I take, and 2) it takes me longer to make my protein shakes for the day than it does to pop two handfuls of pills a day.
Then of course you had your normal for AM supplement discussion of how some need to interject how much supplements suck - which is incredible to me bc its like why post on a supplement forum just to bash supplements? I don't dislike golf, but I don't play golf - and people coming on a supplement forum and bashing supplements to me would be like me taking time out of my day to go on a golf forum and tell people how stupid they are for playing bc I don't play myself; when the reality is that if its something that makes people happy, I'm happy for them.
For anyone that wants to see my supplement regimen and the thread I'm talking about, here's a link to it:
