  1. Hey team, any good websites you would recommend for good information on vitamins, minerals and other supplements such as probiotics ? I just want somewhere I can research by my own, trust and use it as a base for informed talking with health providers - true nerd fitness way!!! I read a lot of lists on men's health mag, men's fitness mag, lifehacker, etc... but I wonder if there is a more authoritative place, or a more general public education place - less commercial and more independent? It seems that sources for a specific recommendation are many times a industry trade associati
  2. Hey guys, I'm a 32-year-old male and was wondering is it fine to take testosterone specifically for when I work out?. Hope to hear from someone soon Thanks in advance
  3. I am lifting weights for almost 2 years but my progress is very slow. Someone suggested me that I should start taking supplements which can boost my performance legally but I am worried if it will affect my health. I searched for some muscle building supplements out of which I found some supplements on bodybuilding.com and some of them on other websites including creatine, protein, pre workout and intra workouts with some test boosters but my diet is good and I eat more than any other friends of mine. Someone also suggested me a supplement with the name crazy bulk their website is mentioned he
  4. Hey everyone this is an article I wrote about scientifically validated supplements. I'm going to be up front I wrote it for my website, but I'm not getting any money from posting it. It covers several research reviews on the efficacy of supplements and apparently there is only a strong consensus for creatine and HMB. I'm a level 1 crossfit instructor and have been working out for about 16 years either as a crossfitter or general gym rat and previously had never heard of HMB. From the research I read, linked in the article, it seems very safe and effective. I hope it helps some folks on t
  5. I hear commercials for Genostim and Nugenix on sports radio all the time. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with either. I'm mostly interested in any impact they'd have to a weight-lifting workout routine. Thanks
  6. I have not been able to find much research on Synephrine... I have a pre workout that I am using that has a lot of Synephrine in it. The NCAA has prohibited it, and my buddy that works with me refuses to take it because he is training for a bodybuilding competition and does not want to risk being popped for it. Any thoughts? -Micronamin
  7. I don't know much about protein powders, but I'm looking for something that wont upset my stomach. I'm lactose intolerant and mildly allergic to almonds. Right now I'm on hiatus from regular workouts until early-mid November (in the process of having surgery done on my eyes), but I'd like to have something for when I start back up. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  8. Hey evreyone! I recently purchased 'sacha inchi protein', never tried it before. I'm intolerant to milk proteins, so whey or milk isolate are definitely not an option for me, and I can't use soy protein with my thyroid medication. Sacha inchi protein has a slightly nutty flavour, but it's quite strong (in shakes for example). I can't find a decent recipe for it because it seems like it's so new! Does anyone have any experience with this protein? I feel like it could be of good use in baking! Thank you and keep kicking ass!
  9. Has anyone ever experimented with dHEA as a weight training supplement? I tried it this week and my ankles got all swollen and puffy within 48 hours, which is apparently a side effect. Anyone used it successfully? Do the side effects ease up after a bit? I've stopped taking it for now, but am curious. I'm not a huge supplement fan so I won't be crushed if it turns out to be a loser.
  10. Hi everyone! The vitamins I'm using are "opti-men", I have two questions: -Should I take them one per meal or is it ok to have them all at the same meal? The daily dose is 3. -Should I swallow them whole with water, or is it better to cut them in two or even crush them? I assume the same would apply to all brands of multivitamins. On a side note is opti-men a good brand? If not, what's a better alternative?
  11. Hi, I'm not lactose intolerant, but I do have an intolerance for cow milk. (Everything that's from goat/sheep/horse milk is perfectly fine) First of all, I'm new to this protein powder thing, so I need your advice 1. Milk isolate is absolutely no option, but what about whey? I have no clue where it actually comes from? 2. What is a good plant-based protein powder? I personally don't like hemp as much, but I have no experience with others. 3. Is it possible to get a protein powder WITHOUT a ton of artificial sweeteners? I'm not used to sweet flavours and they make me kinda nauseous even... (co
  12. I went from tall, dark and (arguably)handsome to... tall, bloated and chubby-faced. A little about me. I'm Lee and I FINALLY got married at 36 years of age on June 22nd to the most beautiful woman I've ever known, inside and out. BUT, I've taken this honeymoon thing waaaaay too far and she won't stop cooking deliciously fattening foods. Lots of Presidente beer and rich Dominican dishes caused my temporary downfall. From the day we stepped into that hotel resort in Punta Cana(I live in the DR) to celebrate our marriage I've been slacking on my workouts and eating like there is no tomorrow. T
  13. I've been reading up on the benefits of fish oil, seems like good stuff so I'm going to give it a try. However it seems like every man and his dog are trying to sell supplements. How do I choose a good brand and what should I look for on the label? (note: I'm in Australia so some of the US brands might not be available here).
  14. So, I feel like many people ask about different powders and what to get. So I figure since I'm on my own journey of trying out different protein powders and seeing what I like, I thought I would share. I hope it's informative, and at least comical. My Philosophy on BROtein: It's a supplement. I only use it to add some easy numbers to my protein macro without inflated calories. I only drink one shake a day (2 scoops protein, 5mg Creatine). The rest of my macros comes from food, as they should. I also prefer natural ingredients and sweeteners. I don't need a bunch of BCAA's and crazy pre

    I am thinking about trying Con-cret creatine. Has anyone else used it. I have read that this one is better because it doesn't require a "loading" cycle, and there aren't any adverse effects if you just stop taking it. Any thoughts?
  16. I'm a noob and I'm looking to lean out and retain muscle mass. I'm just getting back into training and so much has changed in the supplement world so if anyone can suggest a quality thermogenic it would be appreciated. I am looking at AMP Heat Extreme but with so many out there not sure if this product is the best one? Thx
  17. I keep hearing about this weight loss supplement that is supposed to produce miracle increase in metabolism. I am extremely skeptical about it, but I can't deny a boost in my metabolism would definitely help me achieve my fitness goals. I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences about it first have and what they were.
  18. I am trying whey protein for the first time and did a lot of research about the two brands. Help me decide which is better. I am trying to gain weight. Thanks!
  19. This challenge has some very awkward timing for my big picture plan. Those of you who popped into my thread on the last challenge know that I was still going strong on my recomposition. It was easily defined. Gain lean mass and drop body fat via resistance training and nutrition. Over the next month or two, I will be slowly transitioning from my recomp into a lean gain cycle. This is going to make my numbers look very stagnant for the most part…..but I want to get bigger and stronger while maintaining low bodyfat…..so this is going to be a slow and methodical process….and somewhat boring
  20. Today's the anniversary of 'Black Monday' - when the UK government imposed 20% VAT on sports supplements. Why is the health industry taxed more than the junk food industry? Sports nutrition companies are doing a call to arms to protest against the tax: http://www.bulkpowders.co.uk/blog/5700/share-despair-black-monday-vat-sports-nutrition-1-year-anniversary.htm What do you guys think?
  21. Hey all, today I've been looking at different supplements I've taken, am taking, or am looking into taking. I'm wanting to start going Paleo but am wondering what I should be taking. Pure Power Protein looks like a good whey, but what I'm more wondering about is BCAAs? Creatine? Glutamine? And also I've heard casein before bed is supposed to help muscle growth? Anyways, Right now Im about to start Stronglifts 5*5 with cardio and some crossfit. All Advice Welcome! Cheers!
  22. This challenge couldn't have come at a better time! I have been looking for an excuse to make some additional changes to my Druidly lifestyle and looks like this is the perfect opportunity to solidify some new healthy habits. I am fairly new to Nerd Fitness but have already spread the word like a virus at a day care center! I have started a little rebel uprising at work and my fellow rebellions are joining me on the 6 week challenge as the "Sterling [something clever]" group because we just couldn't come up with something more clever by the time we signed up. I consider myself a Druid (alt
  23. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome... I was recently diagnosed with this. I was just curious if anyone else here had it (as I've learned that it is actually quite common) and how it's affected your ability to lose weight/gain muscle/affect thing. Personally, I get really frustrated as my weight yo-yo's constantly and the pudge on my abdomen NEVER goes away. I read that a high protein low carb (basically Paleo) diet was the way to go as there are issues with insulin, etc.? I also have a couple of friends who are taking supplements (such as garlic and green tea extract) to help with their weight lo
  24. Challenge the 2nd: Reconnaissance, support, & escalation Recon: gather info (not underpants!) Support: maintain what's already established Escalation: take it up a notch! This challenge is about not getting hurt as I move up to Level 2 in Steve's Rebel Fitness Guide, finding out if there's any patterns to what I eat, adding supplements which have been helpful in the past, and conquering that one goal I bombed last challenge. Support (Nutrition): CON 2 Take Ultimate Greenzone supplements Take an omega-3 (evening primrose oil?) Reconnoitre (Nutrition): WIS 3 Track calor
  25. Hello all! I'm a newbie here on the NF forums and to the paleo diet. Today is my first day of paleo! I'm easing into the diet all through March, so hopefully by April I'm fully paleo. I have really only one concern, where do I get my vitamin D? I know You can get vitamin D from sunlight, but I live in New England and it's March, so no sun bathing. I also know you can can get it from salmon and other fatty fishes, however I cannot eat salmon as I have a slight allergy to it. I have tried sardines... not my favorite things in the world but I'm sure I could dress them up to make them more appet
