    How much money do you spend on supplements?

    I'm sure this has been asked before but the other thread on supps got me thinking based on the responses.

    I honestly think that the whole supplement thing is over marketed and over done. IMHO eating protein and having the body assimilate it naturally is much better than relying on the latest powders or 'wonderfuel'. I don't think there is any substitute (unless you juice ) for naturally occuring proteins for building a body. Probably opened up a whole different debate from those who swear by supplements, but for the vast majority of BB's, particularly newbies, I think they would be far better served by developing a lifestyle which incorporated the habits, rather than relying on powders and pills.

    I placed a sup order this week and figured that if I ordered the same things for a year, I would spend a little over $800 for twelve months of supplements.

    That's roughly $70. a month, or $17.50 a week. When I look at $17.50 a week compared to what I spend on groceries, it's really not that much.

    Oh, and in before a bunch of guys without avis brag about not taking sups.

    I like the guys who claim to not use any supplements, yet somehow know that all supplements are useless.

    In before some douchebag claims steak (or eggs, or some other arbitrary food item) as a supplement.

    I have taken supps since my first year of training.
    these days though I have tried to become a bit more educated about what to buy.
    I try to stay away from the "everything including the kitchen sink" type supss.
    for instance I stay away from the creatine mass builder proprietary blands and go with your basic creatine mono.
    instead of a big expensive jug of NO powder with aspartame and artificial fruit flavors I get some beta-alanine and arganine capsule, which combined are a fraction of the drink powders cost with the same benefits.
    So while I use quite few supplements, I am able to star in the $50-$99 range, including my fish oil tabs.

    About 30 bucks per month. Protein, fish oil and a multi.

    Try living in Australia where almost ANY supplement tends to be around the $100 maark

    Ie protein, which I'm not using this year, is about 170-200 per 3 kg tub

    Fish oil is relatively cheap as is creatine

    But any of the new you beaut supps sold here get marked up thru the arse and it makes me sooooooo friggin pissed off.

    After the hard sessions - when ya ask yourself all the really tuff questions like "WTF are you doing, mate?"....the answer is....if you aspire to be the best at something - if you set your goal to be best in the world - you want to do more than anyone else is doing out there.

    Easy..if a guy's working harder than me - doing more than me - he fking well deserves to beat me.

    Averaging what I spend on proetin powder, creatine, and multi vitamin/vitamin supplements...


    I don't know, maybe $25 a month... It isn't nothing, but it also isn't a lot. Some of the vitamin money is for my wife and son as well.
    My goals-

    Today, I want to better then I was yesterday. Tomorrow, I want to be better then I am today.

    When I first started training at a real gym I looooved to experiment with supplements. I then decided to just make sure that I kept a few "staples" around the house. I keep a good powdered protein around to mix with water or skimmed milk. I keep MRPs for when I dont want to cook (even with the microwave), I keep a glutamine powder around to take after a workout, powerded vitamin C for recovery, some kind of fatburner with ephedra and all the other goodies and a liquid calcium supplement as well as a liquid multi vitamin. That's pretty basic and keeps down the spending.

    Between my wife and I, about 50-75 a month depending on whether we need to buy whey protein. Sometimes, I'd like to try something, but most everything is the next big thing until it fades away after it releases. So, the older I get, the less I spend. But, if something seems like it would help me reach a goal, I will give it a shot.

    I may have voted much higher then I thought. I had put 100-200 but im thinking its less then that...i hope. I take a protein, multi, omegas, joint supp, saw palmetto and did buy milk thistle which i dont take often. lot of those pills i think last 60 days or so. the protein i do take like 2 serving a day though so they are a month im guessing.

    i am looking to add least glutamine too in all that.

    Nothing .. I got sponsors.

    Usually if I want to try something new I can just contact the companies and swap a review for the sup in my journal or something.. I post reviews of supps on another site to.

    Supps aren't necessary but some can definitely give you an edge. Are whole foods better then taking in Whey? Sometimes, but not post workout. How many lbs of meat do you need to get 400 grams of protein a day? Whey makes getting my daily intake much easier.

    I use a NO pre workout drink
    Whey
    Vitargo (Karbolyn) post workout
    Milk Thistle
    Saw Palmetto
    Multi Vit
    If this were easy, everyone would do it!

    I'm in the $1-49 range mostly - fish oil, protein bars for work (more practical and convenient than carrying shakes in), and a little more if I count the Rockin' Refuel (by Shamrock Farms) milk I drink, which has 20 g protein in a 12-ounce bottle. But I don't think of that as a supplement.
