    Post Supplements and Nutrition

    Just a question about supplements and your nutrition. I use a basic multi-vitamin with some added vit D for the winter time, but other than a good diet I haven't tried anything else. Does anyone use like a whey protein powder, or other nutritional supplements that benefit their training over the long term? I don't want to "cycle" something in and out of my system. Any ideas?

    Fish oil. Multivitamins. That's about it for me.

    Sometimes I go on a creatine cycle and down some of the gainer fuels.

    A combo of the first two replies.

    I would say good food is the first priority, then fish oil, a multi, some extra C during the winter months, and a probiotic. Other than a whey protein shake after my workouts (I only take 2/3 the recommended amount), no other supplements.

    I am a rabid meat eater thought - lots of steak, lots of pork.

    That's about it.

    I'm hoping to learn more about this topic at ESE-U, where I'm currently enrolled.

    I agree pretty much with what's been posted so far.

    I use several Omega 3 sources - Krill Oil (Best Vite brand, find via Google), freshly ground flax seeds, chia seeds, sometime fish oil.

    Vitamin C sometimes. Now, for instance. Cold weather, lots of bugs, I'm a tad congested, etc.

    Sometimes a multivitamin pack.

    Probiotics here and there.

    Food - good quality, little junk, lots of veggies and fruits, lean protein.

    I use All Day Energy Greens to make sure of the veggies, but not everyday.

    ESE-U and other smart folks I know say creatine is okay, but I don't fool with it.

    I use the occasional whey stirred into a glass of water with chia.

    Creatine is great if you need to extra lil' bit of recovery it can give ya.

    For most cases this is nicer to solve by sleeping more and eating more!
