Default Neuro-PS and CytoGainer

Hey guys,

I just ran out of my CytoGainer and made my stop at the local VitaminWorld.

I bought the same container but the sales person there, who I recognized because I used to see him all the time at the YMCA and he had a great, ripped, body. I told him that I was building mass while I am trying to loose fat.

He convinced me to buy this NEURO-PS that is supposed to be very good stuff. I am not really sure about this though.

He was also saying that you should work a lot harder than what you are doing.

I told him I do three sets of 10 on 45pound dumbpbells, among others.

My question is do you guys suggest taking these fat loss crap or is running good enough for me?

Second question, how do I know that I am using all my protein, and if my workout is eounght for the protein intake I have?

Is there some sort of measure? They say you should take your pounds of weight in grams of protein. I am 190 pound, 6'1". I have some, a lot of fat around my belly. I am a programmer so I sit on my ass all day.

What do you suggest?

about those weight loss pills, i think it really depends on how old you are. lets say someone is like 18 their metabolism is running really fast compared to someone who is 40 so those pills wouldnt have much of an effect on the 18 year old but the 40 year old it would work nicely, i assume. your goals were to try and build mass and lose fat at the same time. i would try to get at least your bodyweight in grams of protien daily, spread over several meals throughout the day.

Whoa!

Where to start.

First of all, how is the diet? What are you eating? Diet is the biggest part, because, as you'll hear here and almost every other board (are there any other boards? nah.), muscles grow OUT of the gym, not IN the gym.

What are your goals? Add more muscle I'm guessing.

Common wisdom is 1-1.5 g of protein per # of body weight. Some people say cuurent bw, but some say goal bw. But a few grams on either side of the line, I don't think is a deal breaker.

You say 3 sets of 10 reps with 45's. What exercise is that? DB curls? BB curls? Bench press? Squats? Deadlifts? Tricep extensions. My point is, we'd need a little more info on your workout.

And I'm a little confused. You were taking Cyto"Gainer" which I assume is a weight gainer. And now you are askning about a fat-loss product. These are two mutually exclusive types of products.

I know there's a bunch of questions here, but they need to be answered in order to get the specific help you're asking for.

PS: try to get as much protein from FOOD as you can (chicken breasts, steak, ground beef, tuna, cottage cheese, natural peanut butter, fish, etc). Remember, protein powder is a supplement to the diet, not a replacement meal.

For one sitting some people can take in more protien than others a I know I have taken in around 50-60 at once and didnt end up on the toilet after some people can onl take 30 or so. Try and figure out how much is to much for you then go some below that.

Are you sure it's the protein that's making you shit? It could be what you eat.

i think it might be the protien i know that originally i couldnt take in more than like 50 grams in one sitting else it would just come out the other side after a while i built up a tolerance for it and now i can take in 70 80 grams no problem

Nah sorry I need commas or something in my writing. It says i can take 50 grams no prob but some people if they were to take around 30 they would still be shitting it out.
It could be a tolerance you build up though.
