Do you know how many calories and grams of protein, carbs and fats you’re getting daily? If not, then that’s the first step. Until you do that then you’re just pissing against the wind. Read the ‘Missing Ingredient’ article at T-mag. Then read the ‘Foods that make you look good nekid’ article. Then you MUST read the ‘MAG-10 Plan for Success’ article at T-mag before you start your cycle. Yes, you will need to make dietary changes, but that’s hard to say for sure since you didn’t list calories and macros. Oh, and it’s probably better not to mix your creatine in with thick protein shakes, although it’s okay to mix with Surge.

Lose the vienna sausages, they are nasty, replace it with tuna or something. I like to throw peanutbuttter and a little protein powder in with my oatmeal, to supercharge it You could probably use a few more fruits and veggies, some spinach in your salad, and maybe microwave a few yams to throw in your lunch.Other than those things it does not look to terrible for someone on the go. I would go through and count up your calories and also find out what your macronutrient breakdown is.

…and take natural peanut butter, otherwise it has those evil trans fatty acids.

Thanks for your advise.I have keeped track of my proten grm. its right at 180 give or take a couple.I’m fairly new at this a year and ahalf or so.AS far as carbs go I don’t realy know how many I need to get,or what complex carbs is or any other carb is for that matter. I try to read about carbs thay start talking about GI’s and stuff like that and I get lost.Fat grams I haven’t realy watched. I have very little body fat so I didn’t think it would hurt to get some fat. calories I’m around 3800. Now the creatine I put it in the protein it don’t upset my stomice like that. I’ve tryed apple ,orenge,pineapple juice it upsets my stomice.tryed it in water,tryed a teaspoon of powder dry washing down with water same deal blowted upset stomice.even tryed cell-tec it burned me up then upset my stomice.Dose my supplements look o.k. or do I NEED TO add something or take something away? THANKS James

Dude! Did you go to school? I’m a dumb surfer & I can write better than you. That’s pretty bad bra. Maybe your a surfer! No way man!

You’ll just needs to add alot of protein when on MAG-10. The articles I listed will help you with that. You might want to get some “M” for when you come off MAG-10. Not necessary if you stay off the proper amount of time though. Oh, and use only natural peanut butter! Good luck!
