Chromium Picolinate
 
How important is this supplement? Do any of you take it? Is it worth it?

I read that it basically ensures everything you consume reaches your muscles and is not wasted. It's pretty cheap so I am thinking about purchasing it and see how it goes.

EDIT: Did some more research on it, doesn't seem like something I will be purchasing. Post if you'd like though.

Hey mojo,

I think your research is right. I've never heard anybody back up the claims of chromium picolinate. Chromium in general may help you stay on your diet as a slight appetite suppressant, but if your goal is to put on 11 lbs, I wouldn't think you'd get any benefit worth even the cheapest money from it. I'd say find yourself a reliable creatine product, a reliable glutamine product (that is if you don't already have these, and if you shop around you should be able to find them cheap as well) and eat lots of protein. Make sure you are lifting heavy for smaller reps, because if your goal is to put on weight, high reps with lower weight will not help you acheive your goal.

thanks
 
Appreciate it Raven. Yeah my diet right now is pretty high in protein. I am takign whey, creatine, and fish oil caps as supplements (and a daily vitamin). I am trying to do around 6-10 reps in set. Check out my journal if you want for more info.

I have been spending a lot of time reading up on everything as much as possible. Also, will post a new picture soon. It's still on the camera, not sure if I can notice a difference yet, but I will let you guys compare.

Hey,

No problem at all. Actually, I did take a look at your journal after I posted my comment on this thread. It sounds like you have educated yourself very well, and are on your way. Don't be too hard on yourself if you fall a little short for your target. I set really high expectations for myself too, and if I fall a little short, I just look at the results I have acheived, grin, and set new ones for another goal.

I'm looking at the amount of weight you've put on already, and believe me, you're doing fine.

I did notice some appetite suppression from Chromium but not enough to rave about.

I do not think that it is necessary to take any chromium supplements if u are taking a good multivitamin.
