I am new to all of this and just had a few questions that hopefully some of you could help me with.
I am severely overweight and have begun the journey to getting down to a reasonable weight while adding muscle to my frame at the same time. I have always been a pretty beefy person with a lot of muscle mass but I have a lot of fat covering that whole situation right now. I have been working out about 4 times a week in the gym for over a month now and have lost over 20 pounds and I have gotten a lot stronger.
This is what I am taking right now. In the morning when I wake up I take 2 fish oil caps, my One A Day Men’s Health vitamin, an Ester-C 500mg Vitamin C pill, and of course I eat a decent healthy breakfast. Then after dinner I take another 2 fish oil caps and another vitamin C pill. And after my workout I take two servings of EAS 100% Whey Protein with 16 oz. of skim milk. (Sorry, I am about out of it, so I will be ordering Surge soon
Now I just got my order of HRX in the other day and I plan on starting it tomorrow morning. I am going to start by taking 1 in the morning before breakfast and my other stuff and one later on in the day and I will see how that goes. I am also waiting for my order of Superfood to go through so I can take that in the morning.
Now my question is, is there anything else I should be taking and does it all work well together? Like do I need anything like L-glutamine or something?
Also, if I take the BCAA. How many should I be taking and when? I am trying to scrape up enough money because I am a broke college student, but I really want to do this right and not starve my body of what it needs.
I’m taking the vitamin C pill because being around so many sick people scares me. It really helps against it, so I have stuck with it. Any extra that I don’t need is peed out anyway, so it’s a temporary boost.
One more question. The Spring Valley Fish Oil pills that I am taking that I bought at Walmart have the following:
180 mg EPA
120 mg DHA
How many mg of EPA and DHA should I be taking a day? I know Davenegger said to take 3 after each meal which would be 9 a day. This would give me 1620 mg EPA and 1080 mg DHA per day. I am just trying to figure out if it’s worth ordering Flameout or not.
