Time to stock up. I'm still researching creatine and its effects so I won't be jumping right in with that until I'm 100% comfortable with it, but I do currently take whey and want to start taking casein. I know I can just eat cottage cheese at the end of the night rather than taking a supplement, but I'm curious as to where I can find the best quality casein powder supplement to take a look at. I understand that you want creatine monohydrate in powder form, is that right? Can anybody direct me to a good source for "lab-quality" creatine? Also, I've been using Body Fortress whey because it's $15 for 2lbs at Wally World - I know, getting supplements at Wal-Mart is a lot like getting them at GNC, but the nutrition in the product is fairly sound, it packs in a lot of protein, and it's cheap enough for me to afford. What's the best deal I can find for whey online, maybe whey that is from a slightly better company than Body Fortress? Is unflavored whey and other supplements available to make your own blend or would that not be too cost effective? As for the casein - is that something you want to take more than once a day, or is it mostly only for the night time because it breaks down slowly while you sleep? Either way, what's a good quality source of this stuff in supplement form, along with some natural sources as well? Finally, a quick question regarding AIFM - I know that there have been nothing but rave reviews about this stuff on this forum and I've yet to find anything super negative on other forums about it. Am I playing with fire if I try this stuff out? Should I focus on maintaining a clean and balanced diet and stick with basic supps like vitamins/protein before worrying about AIFM? Sorry for the long thread. Thanks in advance for any help.
