Re: Gave up soda and caffeine. Do I need to "make up" those calories with other foods?

Re: ********?

Hasn't Spark been shown as an ineffective product? I thought I read a couple different places that it was essentially sugar water with a dose of caffeine.

Re: Couple with 'opposite' goals

Have you ever tracked your calories before?

Re: Java junkies out there?

Re: Muscle v.s. Fat Gain + Caloric Consumption Question

Quit stepping on the scale then.

If you like what you see in the mirror what difference does it make?

If what you see looks too skinny; get into a calorie surplus

Re: SFH Fortified vs Progenex More Muscle

I definitely agree with you that your diet is the number on thing to get sorted out.

Re: SFH Fortified vs Progenex More Muscle

I think the point Chris is making if the price is the same one should opt for a whey/casein over just a whey.

So can I buy 2 lb whey and 2 lb casein and mix them and just take that? Would come out...

Re: Supplements & Crossift -- What Are You Taking?

I am 6'2 210lb and I've found that unless I take at least 5mg+ it does not really work for me. So just keep that in mind when the bottle recommends like 1mg or whatever.

Re: MusclePharm Combat Protein Powder

Re: Supplements & Crossift -- What Are You Taking?

I really like Assault. I've never been a fan of the pre works that get you super jacked and tingly. Assault is more a "natural" bump in energy and concentration. Worth giving it a shot for sure.
