    Thanks
    It's not my preference, but Jay Robb has an egg protein that seems very clean, with no additives. It's even sweetened with stevia rather than sucralose or aspartame. I've tasted both the vanilla and chocolate, and can say they taste pretty good too.

    While they may offer this, jay robb's stuff is so overpriced it hurts me to look at it.

    there are companies out there that will mix your own blend, flavor it how you want, sweeten it with what you want, add hatever carbs you like - oat starch etc.. add supplements, add fats like MCT or Flax powder, if you like. Their egg white protein starts at around $10.50/lb

    let me know if you want more info


    This mix is $10.49/lb before shipping

    I found this article to be very informative. I may try the CLA that your wife suggested in addition to my supplements.

    I do hear a lot about creatine as being vital to your workout program, however, the increase in size is what sets me off. I want to have lean muscle and look lean rather than bulky. Do you have any suggestions for an alternative? I am 5'2 and 114lbs (Age 24). I have lost 16 lbs so far and I'm working my butt off at the gym. I'm noticing that I have gained a lot of strength and muscle tone in my body which I'm loving. Although, creatine is also an essential part of building that muscle physique.

    Let me know what you think. Thanks

    Women ask us for advice on supplements all the time. they do not know what to take or think they dont have to because they are not "bodybuilders". I think supplement company's need to correct some of their marketing strategies.

    ANOTHER MYTH- Creatine does NOT automaticaly equal some dramatic increase in size, creatine only allows you muscle to stay properly hydrated (fluid intake critical) so it can recover properly and be stronger while lifting. Guys who claim that "creatine made me so hyooge" it was all the enormous amounts of crap they ate that made them swell up like a baloon.
    My wife does not get size increases from creatine, just strength increases, which can lead to muscle size increases. You WNT muscle size increases, you are note getting 'muscle tone' you are increasing muscle SIZE which makes the muscle more noticeable. Couple this with not increasing bodyfat and you get the "tone" effect. Now NEVER use the term TONE again....
    You want an increase in lean muscle mass, not 'tone,' LEAN MUSCLE.

    Great post - I recently made a page to discourage the toning myth myself.
    The truth about toning

    Creatine is not bad unless you take too much or load it.

    Hi!!! Most reccomended doses are based on either 180 lbs or 150 lb which is your average weights... It is always a good idea to start any supplement with half the reccomended dose to assess your bodies tolerance and reaction

    Good luck!!!

    AMINOTAUR by Anabolic Designs, I have tried this products.
    I am a 60Kg female who never takes any pre workout stimulants or fat burners except for a strong coffee, and I don't take anything during my workout either as my personal choice has always been to replenish afterwards.
    The serving suggestions are a choice of 1 scoop (6.5gr) pre, 1-3 scoops during and 1 scoop post.
    I chose to try the 3 scoops in 1 litre of water during my workout and 1 post.
    The product has good mixability and you don't need to keep shaking your bottle as there is no sediment forming at the bottom unlike many bcaa based products. The taste is a little too sweet for me, but I am not a fan of sweet things, so my trick was to add the juice of half a lemon!
    I must say that the 3 scoops dose could be a little too much for my size as I experienced some heart racing during my workout, one of the reasons why I stay clear from stimulants. Having said that, the second time I lowered my dosage to 1.5 scoops during and 1.5 post, the unpleasant side effect disappeared entirely and I had a great pump and good vascularity, then again the heart palpitation could have been totally unrelated, but am reporting it.
    Additionally, Aminotaur contains HICA a metabolite of Leucine which is claimed to be the successor of HMB. Although it can be argued that not enough research or studies have been conducted so far to support the claims, HICA is a metabolite of Leucine and its role is to tell your muscle cells they are burning aminos and therefore to increase their anti catabolic processes and as we get older, extra leucine boosts the anabolic stimulus of protein.
    Aminotaur gets my thumb up as a during and post workout drink to aid recovery and for better protein synthesis.

    That is odd, it actually helps my wife's complexion. Did you start taking anything else with it, or is this a long term "it's happened every time I take CLA" problem?

    Just want to make sure that in the 7 years since she wrote this, it all still holds true! I've heard a lot about brands that she didn't mention.

    She uses Cellucor C4, Promera Beta Cret or Pump Extreme with Con Cret, and she mixes them with Scivation Xtend, every workout day. She also still like Kre-Alkalyn best too for her second 'pill form' of creatine.
    She mixes her preworkout and Xtend and sips throughout the workout.
