Beginner Supplement Question
Hey guys,

I just started working out and eating right. Im 6'1 205lbs. 24 years old. I recently bought these Pre-Workouts

- Optimum Nutrition Essential Amino Energy
- MP Assault Blue Arctic Raspberry 1.76 lbs
- Dymatize Elite Whey Protein Gourmet Vanilla - Whey Protein Isolate

I haven't started any of these yet but I plan on taking ON Amino Energy 30mins before my cardios and max interval training and I plan on taking MP Assault 30mins before my weight training. The Elite Whey Protein 30mins after each workout and 30mins after I wake up.

I also just ordered Milk Thistle pills and I currently take Lipodrene Appetite Control to cut off a few lbs. because of all of my past horrible eating and hardly working out. Right now I have a fat stomach and bigger thighs that I wanna cut down.

I am also trying to eat about 2,500 calories per day of fruit, vegetables, protein drinks, chicken, nuts, turkey, yogurt, etc....

Is there anything more I should be taking or doing? Is there anything I should cut out? and I also plan on taking Powerdrol after I stop the Lipodrene and cut off some lbs.

Anything to critique? Again I'm a beginner to working out/supplements but I am fairly active through sports.

Thanks Again!

Multi-Vitamins Fish Oils and other general health supplements are good to get just for overall health. Try to get some casein protein or eat cottage cheese before you go to sleep. Other than that, it looks good.

You don't need to obsess over what you are taking 30 min before or after you work out. As long as your calories and macronutrients (protein, carbs, etc) are in order and you are training properly you'll be just fine.

If you want to supplement, use creatine mono, fish oil, maybe a protein supplement, and a decent multivitamin. That's all you need.

Fructose the sugar found in fruit is not a good thing to consume when looking to loose weight

And all wheat and grains are also a bad choice for fat loss

donít be afraid of saturated fat, butter and meat from grass fed cows, and egg yokes and are great for fat loss

Keep your carbohydrates to less than 100 grams a day from steamed sweet potatoes or similar

Stay away from processed / dead food like protein bars and shakes

Supplement with fermented cod liver oil and high vitamin butter oil

Definitely for any beginner or even advanced fitness enthusiast a multi-vitamin is key in any supplemental plan.

Vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and co-factors make up much of the important chemicals your body uses to power metabolism. And while your diet may be on track in terms of containing all the right proteins, carbs, and EFAs, you may not always be getting every single vitamin, mineral, electrolyte and co-factor you need for optimum health and performance.

you may not notice it in the gym, but overall your body needs good sources of those vitamins and minerals to fully optimize your training and dieting. Currently I'm taking Vitabolic from Nutrabolics and also supplementing ZMA at night.

I don't think I'll ever second guess MV's and it's unfortunate that so many gym goers underestimate or think they're useless!

I have taken Precision Engineered Elite Training Packs. However I really dig Animal Pak. I have always thought of a multi as the pin that links it all together.
