My Supplements

There are many supplements out there that work well for some people and don’t work at all for others. Whether you’re a male or female, these are the supplements I consider essential to maximize your fat loss and/or muscle mass gains. (These are the Supplements I take.)

ProLab 100% Creatine monohydrate. This is German creatine (purest form). The “creapure” stamp on the label ensures this.  
Optimum Nutrition Glutamine Powder (I take only 1/2 tsp. with my creatine.)  
Optimum Nutrition 100% Natural Casein protein. (Slow digesting protein; I usually blend Old Fashioned Rolled Oats with this (for a MRP), I usually sip it before bed.  
Optimum Nutrition Optimen (Multivitamin)  
Optimum Nutrition BCAAs (Branch Chain Amino Acids)  (When I don't have time to drink Xtend or Core ABC.)  
Scivation VasoCharge (N.O. type product; I take it 30 minutes prior to working out on an "as needed" basis.  Typically I'll only use it when I need that extra edge for my workouts, especially on an occasional leg day.  
Scivation Xtend (Glutamine, BCAAs, & more mixed for a good tasting drink; I sip it during my workouts and between meals.)  I alternate with Xtend and Core ABC.  
Core ABC (Glutamine, BCAAs, & more mixed for a good tasting drink. I sip it during my workouts & between meals.) I alternate with Xtend and Core ABC.  
Flax Seed Oil, made by NOW Nutrition. (Essential Fatty Acids; I take this after most meals of the day, and especially before bed).  
Optimum Nutrition Pro Complex Gainer (High Carb MRP; I have ½ a serving right before breakfast, ½ serving with dextrose during my workout, & ½ serving with dextrose post workout right before my meal.  I only drink this during my bulking phase.  
Pro Lab Whey Isolate  (Fast digesting protein; I often mix some rolled oats with this as well).  

“My favorite Meal Replacement Product”

Old Fashioned Oats, Whey Protein, and Natural Casein Protein.  

I drink 2 of these per day. I believe this is an ideal all natural MRP. It’s fantastic for those of us that find it difficult to get their daily quota of calories or if you’re simply on the run. You can add however many grams of protein and carbs needed exclusively for you. On occasion I’ll feel nauseous trying to force huge plates of food down, instead I’ll sometimes eat only a 1/2 a plate of food and have a half of a shake as well.

Don’t forget though, you must eat as much regular food (or more) than shakes in a day. Whole foods have nutrients that shakes lack.

“Please don’t take away my creatine or whey protein”

Out of all these supplements I use; by far the two I consider most important is the creatine monohydrate and whey protein. As long as my diet is in check I feel everything else can simply give me that extra edge.
