Nothing there is over the top however I’d personally eat more and maybe try to keep track of your intake so you’re getting enough to build the muscle and gain strength. But not knowing your nutritional stats I can’t say for sure. No supplement will ever take the place of actual food, even protein powder. It’s good for filling in gaps.

You're not overdoing it, it's just not necessary. I really like the Beyond Raw: Lit preworkout, and would recommend keeping that.

BCAAs are a waste of money--if you're eating a normal diet, you don't need to supplement with amino acids.

Protein powder is fine, but again--a solid post workout meal will do the job just as well and save money.
Basically, your current supplements are totally reasonable but not necessary. I'd recommend dropping the BCAAs and replacing it with creatine monohydrate, and only take the whey on days when you don't get a filling post workout meal

He meant what is your caloric goal to TDEE depending on your goal and macros. This looks pretty poor.

Pretty late for taking a PWO after 5pm right? Only reason to take caffeine PWO is if you're an addict.

I take pre usually 730-930pm. Typically asleep by 2am including training for 1-2hr and meal prepping.

This doesn't tell anyone anything to be able to assist you. Are you trying to cut, bulk, or maintain? How consistent are you hitting your macros? What's your surplus or deficit? How (much) you are eating is just as important as (what) you are eating, and likely a little more so.

Yes

You don’t need any supplements other than a regular multivitamin.

Just try to get a decent amount of protein from food and you’re good. Don’t waste your money on anything else.

Since you are using shakes to maintain a constant intake of protein throughout the day, you may want to consider switching to a blend or mixing in casein instead of pure whey. It'll expand your absorption window compared to just the whey. Maybe try half a scoop of both in your shake. Something to think about.

Evil bug, if my math guesstimating is correct, that’s 1,50O calories (or less) a day!? Unless you weigh, like 100 pounds, and are sedentary, that isnt going to give you near the calories you need to build muscle.

Nothing wrong with protien powder as part of your diet (it’s just food), but you really need to work on finding your TDEE and eating enough calories for your goal AND general health. If your appetite is this small, try blending peanut butter and/or oats into your shakes, and use Fairlife whole milk.

Supplements can be good and helpful...but an overall healthy diet needs to be your real focus IMHO.

Your posts just get more and more lulz


It's not a good thing

That's a recipe for failure.

You can try to do anything, but unless you succeed in DOING it, well.

"Decent amount" is pretty darn undefined.

Try to get a decent amount, but fail...you're not good brah

That certainly explains why only addicts would take caffeine pre workout. :rolleyes:

There is zero relevance to types of protein and windows of absorption nor timing to the vast majority of people when considering a high protein diet of varied sources. It doesn't matter what type of powdered food he uses as long as he's only using it to conveniently help him meet his macro if he needs the help.

Without having nearly the necessary details to actually be able to help you, I want you to think about something...

My breakfast is probably within 200cals of your entire days food.

You likely aren't eating enough of the right things.
