    I'd keep protein around or I'd get a solid MRP like Solution-5. You'll have a complete meal for about 1.75. You won't be able to eat that cheap on the regular. When you realize how much money you consume in food, especially if you go out, it's crazy.

    I'd agree with fish oil and a basic multi.

    I only drink solution-5. I drink it 2x per day, at breakfast and bed. Has 10 servings of fruits and veggies at a full serving. Nice procream protein (no homo) and it doesn't bother me at all. I use it a lot when I travel, which is pretty often.

    It's 30 for 2lbs, but if you're interested I can put a special up for you guys on it. I don't use whey protein ever. I only use this MRP. I believe in complete meals. Why drink a shake and add in all that other shit when I can just have it all in a shake? I'm a BIG believer in fruits and their benefits, but without the calories. I eat a ton of blueberries. I don't look my age, my skin is great and I honestly think from a longevity standpoint, it's helpful. Throw in the fact of no malto/corn syrup's, I'm all for it.

    I'm around 11% right now, shooting for 8% in 6 weeks and I drink 2 servings a day.

    you're internets broke?

    BCAA=branched chain ammino acids (i.e. building blocks of protien) people thinks it's good when cutting to keep muscles fueled during gym time.

    Beta alinine=pre workout crack

    also...THERE IS A STICKY LABLED "CURRENT DEALS & SPECIALS" OR SOME SHIT AT THE TOP OF THIS SUBFORUM...

    it can be if it fits your macros


    hmm..I may be interested in this special...

    Creatine
    fish oil
    dbol

    anything else is going to make an absolute minimal difference at best.

    I've not supplemented with BA for a long enough duration or kept track of my variables to note any significant changes or increases in muscle mass or body weight. What has your experience been using it? I am thinking about testing the waters out when I finish up my cycle and using it for a 3 month period taking 3-5 grams a day.

    Let me know what you have done, what gains you were able to achieve
