Good supplement websites that i use are,


A really good forum to browse and learn A LOT about supplements and dieting is www.avantlabs.com - really good knowledgable <sp> people there.

www.bodybuilding.com has a good forum but a lot of younger peeps there and sometimes give the wrong info. But it is a good forum to browse too.

Tom, what do you know about making your own protein shakes? I can't understand what the **** any of those sites are talking about without putting an effort into learning what "Anticababltiisn" is. I am looking to buy some protein from a health store to mix in with milk and **** for cheap, home made protein shakes.

Bro- are you looking to make your own protein shakes or actually buy protein from the store?

I was thinking of buying some whey protein and mixing it into shakes at home.

oh thats easy bro, buy whey protein, i usually put like 2 1/2 scoops of GNC protein and mix it with water, yields around 50g of protein...or you could mix the protein powder with yogurt which i also do. GNC protein takes pretty bad tho, i like Designer's flavors. I believe 1fast400 sells a 10lb bag of optimum nutrition whey protein for like 48 bucks i believe...not totally sure i have to check itout, i dunno how Optimum's flavor is, but i heard that GNC gets their protein from Optimum but people say the two taste really different.

Thanks man, I'll look for some locally. Any restrictions on how much? I know when you're taking more protein than your body needs you're ****ting out your own money...

I take in, or at least try to daily, 1 gram of protein per pound of my boyd weight, ie 180 lbs=180 grams of protein, some even go as high as 2grams per pound.

Are you trying to gain mass, or lose weight, what's your goal?

Right now I'm in a losing weight stage. I've gone down from around 205 or 210 to 195 so far from basic exercise and diet, but I'm going hardcore on my diet right now for a few weeks hoping to get down to 190 by near end of April. I just want to make sure I am getting enough protein during this fat shedding part so my muscles are being maintained for my weight training which is going to pick up this coming week. Once I get down to around 180 I plan on eating more healthy stuff so I can bulk on muscle without the fat.

for weight loss, this comes out pretty good

total caloric intake: 195x11-12
carbs-195x.8=156grams x4=624
protein-195x1.3=253.5 x 4=1014
fat-195x.3-58.5 x9=526.5
total 624+1014+526.5=2164.5; it's doesn't exactly match up with above but it gives you a pretty good estimate how many grams you should eat of each. Also theres 4 calories in EACH gram of Carbs/Protein. THere is 9 calories in each fat gram
This worked for me following this guide

Hoyl **** thanks man, I apreciate the number crunching, I don;t know how all that works.

I took it from an article from www.bodybuilding.com, but it works pretty good
