    Ive been hearing a lot about whey proteins that work and those that dont... so i dont know what exactly to get. Could someone please tell me exactly what i need and where to order it from?

    I've never used supplements before so some info and input would be nice. I dont want creatine, but im interested in fish oil and whatever else is out there.

    whey protein is pretty simple, most brands will meet your needs if you are just beginning.
    Popular good tasting brand is ON or "optimum nutrition" and most supplement stores will carry it.

    Im curious as to why you are not wanting to use creatine, most users get good results from it?

    fish oils are a good source of omega acids, I personally do not take any oil supplements because my diet consists of 2-3 cans of tuna a day so i get my omega's there.

    What kind of canned tuna are you eating that you get a bunch of omega 3's from?

    Albacore in water is a good enough source of omega 3, again since I eat 3 cans per day, I dont need to worry about it.
    If I didnt eat 3 cans of tuna a day, I would supplement it.

    There are better "fattier" fish for omega 3's, but since I eat a ton-o-tuna, im good.

    You don't take whey (incuding muscle milk) OR creatine.

    You'd take whey AND creatine.

    If you were to choose 1, then you'd choose whey. They are independant from one another in all ways that you are concerned with.

    That's a lot of tuna fish -- I'd gag

    If you want, take creatine or don't take it, but make sure your next post doesn't have the words "creatine" and "kidney" in it.

    it's just protein, just find one that you feel comfy with protein/carbs/calories/price/etc.
    (i usually just drink O/N)

    what ya got against creatine? let me guess, a buddy who knows nothing told you it'll ruin your kidneys.....amiright

    Geez I hope not, creatine, particularly a form like PureCEE, has no affect at all on kidney function. CEE is for energy in the muscle, whey isolate is to make it grow. That's that.
