I'm not a bodybuilder, but I have some constructive criticism for you: most people I know dont take things in all caps seriously, so you might want to edit it or people might just pass this right over as a joke.

Starting taking whey protein and creatine in H.S. but took it on a off and on basis. Maybe a total of like 3 months within 4 years. Last year and a half I have been consistently taking them.
