I've been on the CrossFit program for about 5 months now, and as a carpenter/cabinetmaker, I burn a lot of calories during a day and would like to know if anyone can recommend a good supplement that I can take on the job with me for between meals.

I'm not looking for the Mega-calorie-give-you-the-runs type of supplement, as I'm only looking to put on about 5-7 lbs. and maintain that. I currently weigh between 150-155.

Dustin, check out www.bodybuilding.com

They have a huge cyberstore that can help pinpoint just what you're looking for.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Roy

Dustin,

If you want a good protein powder, check out blackstarlabs.com. I've had a few experiences with them. The Ceramic-Filtered Whey Vanilla tastes like candy, without any added junk to make it do so.

To do it on the cheap:
Maltodextrin 50lbs around $50 from Grain processing corporation

Non fat powdered milk

Non fat condinced milk can for on the go...

Might not be the best way, but it's cheap and it works...

Dustin,

Do you like seeds and nuts? Powerful little snacks in my opinion. I'm always crunching on almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc.

Thanks a lot guys. I've been mixing instant breakfast with a cup of yogurt and a banana with some milk, but it's not too good if you wait too long; it all settles out.

I'll try your suggestions and let you know how it goes.

Brad--I eat a lot cashews and peanuts. I'm thinking these probably have a lot of fat in them, but they sure are good. Are some more beneficial than others?

Dustin,

I prefer to up my fat intake, rather than carb. intake, to maintain or gain weight. Of course I'm referring to "good" fats. I'm not a fan of peanuts... prefer almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc. Peanuts are beans.
