Question for you guys who use supplements..

I'm 6'4" and pushing almost 300lbs. now.. I walk around at about 275-285 but I managed to add on some winter weight. Anyway, I plan to get a gym membership on Monday and I'm looking to get back down to about 260 (where I was after Basic/AIT) AND put on some muscle. I'm a naturally big guy, broad shoulders, big chest, big hips, fat ass. Lolz. I'm not fat, like obese. But I've got some extra pounds to lose.

My question is..is there a good supplement that's fairly cheap, and will help me build muscle while at the same time, help me burn fat?

I've never in my life touched a supplement..so bare with me.

I'm sure there are decent supplements out there, but I'll let somebody else go into that. My best advice is that you fuel up for your workouts with something with protein in it. That'll help sustain your workout. Some people will stack in caffeine or other stimulants. They can help, but I don't think that they're necessary.

Then, after your workout, eat a decent meal within an hour post-workout. Again, include some healthy protein sources-- that'll help speed your recovery.

If you're like most people, just cutting out junk-food (pop, chips, etc) and eating healthier foods will help.

Cutting out junk foods is something I've def been working on. I've been on a horrible chocolate fix as of late. I don't drink much soda, though. I tend to stick to Snapple, Vitamin Water, Water and other juices.

whey powder is your best bet. Mix it with whole milk, because protein without fat is worthless. GNC whey isolate 28 is crazy expensive like $40 for 2 pounds, but if you go to Costco, you can get Muscle Milk whey powder 6 pounds for like $30. Milk protein is good too but whey is the best. Take it imediately after your workout. THat is the only appropriate time to do so.

Also, want to cut pounds, be sure to deadlift, squat and eat a paleolithic diet. Fats are not bad for you, whole grains and flour are. Generally speaking, it might take about a month of the strict dieting before you feel great and full of energy every day. If you can eat dairy do it. Whole milk is like liquid steroids almost

basically, meats, veggies, nuts, fruits, dairy, cooking fats such as butter, olive oil, coconut oil. I literally subsist off meat, eggs, and dairy.

Jack3d about 30 minutes before workouts, And whey protein after seams to help me out a lot.

Jack3d is available at GNC, on sale for around $25, and i dont use this every workout (otherwise your body can potentially stop producing its own creatine)

And whey protein you can get almost anywhere, but i get mine from BJ's Wholesale Club. It comes in a huge bag, and the chocolate flavor is delicious.

Im 6', 250lbs, but not really too fat. A little bit of chub, but not too much. i used to weigh about 210, but once i started using these, it seamed to be much easier to build muscle mass. I cant guarantee weight loss, but these should help you look more built.

Feel free to PM me, or just reply to this post if you had any questions

Took Jacked for a cheap why to endeur long workouts. It made me so shacky and gave me Migraine after working out.. Not good since I threw up all my post workout supplement.

Best stuff I have taken for pre workout is Advocares Muscle fuel, or as I call it second muscle. They only downside is the cost, but man it truly is incredible how much more you are able to do with it and you dont feel shaky and all caffeed up.

Here is the stuff..

Drink 1-2 gallons of water per day.

I posted a ton of supplement info in this topic a while back... Looks like it vanished tho...

Anyways, check out http://www.hotnfit.com/ecstack.htm for the EC stack for fat burning... Very good info.
