Knowing nothing about you here's what I recommend;

- Buy some scales which tell you your body fat. If you're finding it hard to lose those lbs it might be because your weight is mostly muscle.

- Unless you're boxing and want to cut to a particular weight forget about lbs, work on body-fat %. You see, you might go out running, swimming, using the punch bag, doing weights, EVERYTHING and those lbs just don't seem to drop...The reason? You're cutting the fat but replacing it with muscle - which is a good thing. So, hell, you might even gain weight! Doesn't mean you're gaining fat. So, if it's for just health forget about lbs and watch your body-fat %, you'll see that you're doing much better than you think.

- Vitamins you should take. i) Zinc - a MUST, it's great for rebuilding muscle and the immune system, most males are deficient. ii) Calcium - recent reports show that muscle fatigue and lack of growth can come from small leaks of calcium and subsequent calcium deficiency. iii) Vitamin C - General purpose, cleans out the system and helps with fatigue. iiii) B-12 - Good for your blood, heart and brain.

Don't bother with the "multi-vitamins" I never trust them. Just buy it as separate boxes, get a box of zinc and and one of b-12. Drink plenty of milk and eat your good lean meat for your calcium and iron. If you don't think you're getting enough vitamin c then get some of that, you can get it in the fizzy things you put in the water, they're ok. DO NOT over-do the vitamin c, too much results in a flushing of the system causing imbalances with other vitamins and minerals.

Forget about all of these fat-cutting bull**** products, the only way is work. They make millions and millions by advertising crap. Regular exercise, good vitamins, burn more calories than you take in and viola, you'll cut your body fat.

Animal Pak isn't needed, thats for more hardcore lifters. Optimum Nutrition Opti-Men and Controlled Labs Orange Triad are the main two I'd look at.

no multi vitamin is bad for you, a complete diet fruits and veggies plus a multi is good. Get your levels checked to see if you're getting to much of the stuff thats not good for you.

Get a whole food Multi. It's easier on the stomach and the body better utilize the nutrients.

Animal Pak, like it's been said, isn't necessary unless you are a hardcore lifter.

Does anyone know what Vitamin B does? obviously heard of it before, but does anyone know its purpose? thanks

**12 hour energy claims to have "B Vitamins for energy" but that was said to be not true.

imagine you eatin 100 oranges compared to 100 pills

whats better?

What kind of comparison is that, I agree real food are the best way to get nutrients but if you go food to pills, the reason for pills existing is convenience. X Pill = More Amount of Items in Food. Ex: 1 Pill to 10 apples.

you'd prob be sick when you take the 100 pills

Yeah but you wouldn't have too...

You can get sick drinking too much water.
You can get sick eating too much McDonalds.
You can get sick doing too much X.

Whats your point.

why would you eat 100 of anything?

that sounds really dumb, excessive and unneccessary.

Well I agree on eating or drinking excessive amounts. But say if we were talking about a 7'0 man who can intake 100 oranges and 100 pills. The 100 pills wouldn't be so good for him.

There wouldn't be a reason do either. But if he was aiming to get as much from the pill as real foods who wouldn't need to take nearly as many pills which is why your argument makes no sense.

Though the 100 pills wouldnt be to good he could atleast get them down where as he would probably end up vomiting after 50 of the oranges

I can't judge about the Animal Cuts, but I think the Animal Pak is a little expensive for what you get. I'd just get a regular multi formula if I were you.
