Anyone have thoughts on President's Choice Whey Protein Isolate? It's super cheap in grocery stores right now.

One thing to not include is sugar or anything else that is particularly high in carbs.

from what i understand you'd have to eat a ton of whey to get the BCAAs you want

or food, like meat. BCAAs are IMO useful when you train fasted.

Because Vitamin D comes from sunlight exposure, it'd be especially useful to those of you who work indoors with flourescent tans.

Vitamin D is one of the most important nutrients in our bodies and I recommend Vitamin D to my patients frequently. It's critical not only for strong bones, but studies have also shown it can improve muscle strength and decrease the risk of autoimmune diseases (diabetes, MS, rheumatoid arthritis), colon cancer, breast cancer, and possibly prostate cancer.

President's Choice rocks. Wish we could get it here in Upstate NY.

I picked up some of the President's Choice whey protein powder, vanilla flavoured. It was 22.99 for a large tub, don't remember the exact size but the same relative size as most of the others. The flavour is more like cake batter but it's not bad. It mixes really well though, with no clumping at all. Not much of an aftertaste either. 27 grams of protein per 30 gram serving and 110 calories.

Horny Goat Weed should be a perfect answer when men are lack of libido and there is a weaker erection issue. This would draw back you full strong and longer erection and libido. There are Viagra but can't beat Horny Goat Weed still now' There is no risk if you not going to take earlier than 4 hours apart.

I train fasted so I have them before I train. I think there are some in my whey but who knows.

[quote=akatsuki;3984344]Multivitamins may shorten lifespan.

Omega-3 research is reasonably solid - so fish oil is probably worth it. Creatine research is also pretty solid for athletic performance.

As for the rest? I thought about trying out PAGG stacking, but it is too pricey on a monthly basis for things of doubtable value (sorry Tim, but an n=1 while changing a ton of other factors is not scientific at all). Maybe if they come out with a unified pill that isn't $92 a month or whatever I'll give it a shot.

Ask your uncle about fat and carbs in the diet. Does dietary cholesterol raise your blood cholesterol? What about saturated fat? How good are those studies?

-----------------------------------------------

I strongly agree with your viewpoints and to say that wrong selection of multivitamins may effect body very destructively. So right selection in consultation with any experienced one is important.

NOTE: These are the recommendations from my trainers specifically for me. YMMV. Consult your physician before undertaking any weightloss program.

Calorie intake: 1650
Calorie breakdown: 50g fats, 180g protein, 120 carbs

Creatine powder: Dymatize Nutrition, Creatine Micronized, 100% Pharmaceutical Grade.
Regimen for me: 1/2 heaping teaspoon prior to weightlifting, 1/2 heaping teaspoon post workout. This is what our trainer has recommended. Recommended taking it with a high sugar fruit juice like apple juice to get an insulin pump going to get it to your muscle tissue.

The "ideal" weightloss rate recommended is 1-2 lbs per week. Since I have been morbidly obese for many years, my doctor has been quite pleased that I have been able to take off the weight and keep it off so far.

The trainers run each workout (1 hour) on a 4-week cycle:

Week 1: Cardio/Ab training MWF, Upper Body weights Tues., Lower Body weights Thur.
(Cardio consists of circuit training with a heart rate monitor. Abs training is similar to, but not, P90X - it is more varied)

Week 2: Cardio/Ab training Tue/Thur, Upper Body weights Mon., Lower Body weights Wed., Upper Body weights Fri.

Week 3: Cardio/Ab training MWF, Lower Body weights Tues., Upper Body weights Thur.

Week 4: Cardio/Ab training Tue/Thur, Lower Body weights Mon., Upper Body weights Wed., Lower Body weights Fri.

Weight training consists of 6 sets of each exercise: 12 reps, 10 reps, 8 reps, 6 reps, 12 reps, 12 ultimate set

The weight for each set is based on the maximum one can lift for 6 reps. As an example, bicep curls using one of the weight machines for me is:

12 reps : 10 reps : 8 reps : 6 reps : 12 reps : 12 (ultimate set)
50 lbs : 60 lbs : 70lbs : 80lbs : 70lbs : 15 lb. dumbell in each hand, hammer curl

The weights progress till one has exhausted the muscle group, then an ultimate set is done to finish it off using a slightly different set of muscles in the same group, e.g., hammer curls exercise the brachioradialis more than supinated (palm up) curls. For a bench press, the ultimate could be an inclined or negative inclined press.

An example of cardio consists of circuits having an abdominal exercise, upright bike (maybe doing biceps curls or overhead press), punching a bag, squat thrust, push-ups, elliptical machine, running around the building 1-2 laps. Other days we do varied "suicide runs" or and Indian run for 1/4 - 1/2 mile and then do a cardio circuit. Each exercise is done for 60 to 300 seconds, depending on the whim of the trainers.

Ab training involves sit-ups, negative sit-ups, crunches, crunches with various forms of leg exercises thrown in simultaneously, such as bicycle kick, leg raises, hip raises.

This just scratches the surface of the variety of exercises we do for cardio/abs. The trainers user their imaginations to torture us.

If anyone wants more detail, now that I have bored you to numbness, PM me.

That's a lot of curls. Are you not aware that iBro's will mock you for that? Anyways, heres an interesting infographic based off of the amount of good data, compared to popularity. Higher up = Better Data. Bigger circles = More Popular. Orange = not enough data for a fair comparison http://www.informationisbeautiful.ne...l-supplements/ Interesting: Fish oil is high (for heart disease), Ω3's are low. Acai is at the bottom, which makes me happy
