  2. Protien (any kind)
  3. HOT-RX (for dieting)
  4. Superfood
  5. REAL food! (Should be #1)

Honorable mention goes to Animal Pak for making my piss lime-green whenever I take it.

Because real food is a “supplement”.

  1. food
  2. water
  1. effort, in the gym and at the dinner table.
  2. BCAA’s
  3. quality protein powders
  4. Flameout
  5. various vitamins (ZMA, d3, c, can i put resveratrol here too?)

honorable mention: lots of water… i almost put this in the list, but i already had one non-supplement in my 5.

edit: my number 1 is due to the realization that i am stabbing myself in the foot more than i thought i was with my eating habits. it’s now a personal goal to get myself eating clean 90+% of the time. my thanks go out to B rock
