You know… its really a good thing to get your diet in order. So that is great advice everyone gave you.
But at the same time I am getting a little sick of reading this forum and every time someone asks a question about supplements they get quizzed about their diet… which is ok i guess but then no one even answers the question.
There is a fallacy here that if you don’t eat like your diet was designed by the crew of star trek then supplements wont work.
I understand where this comes from… a dumb kid doesn’t know anything about training and eats nothing but twinkies and thinks a magic pill will help them. This kid needs to be straigtned out. But i think its getting to the other extreme around here. The Pendulum has swung too far the other way… as people always tend to do. It is only natural.
But… newsflash… When I was in high school I read all I could, I ate as well as I could but I had to eat what ever my parents made for dinner. I just ate a lot.
I made up for these shortcomings as well as I could and i took protein powder. It helped bridge the gap. And it helped a lot…
And then I started taking creatine and I got a LOT stronger and I gained weight.
I didn’t keep a food log, i didn’t take fish oil, I didn’t take a post workout shake, etc. How could this be? Because supplements that work are going to help you.
Period. Maybe it wont help as much as it would if you were eating perfectly… but i’ll tell you this, there is no way that if i took the $50 a month i spent on creatine and instead spent that exact amount on extra food a month I would of gotten greater results.
I’m sorry but i have not tried either of these supplements or I would give you the info you asked for. Maybe someone who has taken them will chime in.
