Questions and Answers

Muscle building/reduce body fat supplements help?

I'm 18 years old ,6 ft tall and I used to weight 236 pounds,I lost around 50 pounds and went down to my current weight of around 183-185 pounds in 3 months by doing P90X and following a very strict very low calorie diet that helped me lose all of the weight fast,but now I want to put some lean muscle mass.I eat every three hours and eat very healthy,no sodas(not even diet sodas) only water(Lots of water),skim milk and a little OJ in the morning. I came through this website and checked out the teen body muscle building program and the nutrition part seems reasonable but what caught my eye was the recommended supplements:

MPH Activite Sport (Multivitamin)
EFA Lean Gold(Omegas)

Now my question,I'm 18 and I plan working out till my body tells me than I can't(hopefully when I'm really old),now are this products safe to use,like the chemicals in them,how bad are the side effects,would you guys recommend other products.I went to GNC and they have their own line so is that better,I hope you all can help me.Thanks.

Pablo my man..
U need to understand d fact that d body is helped by these supplements..
But over time.. U'll realise that ur body needs more n more of them to sustain.. Coz it'll start getting used to it.. Like today u'll start with one scoop.. N by d end of 3 months u'll be having around 3-4 scoops in a day.. But ur body is not going to be able to digest all this easily.. Leading to kidney n liver problems..
N u'll not notice these problems right now.. They'll come around when ur 40-45 years of age..
That time ur body will have illness symptoms of a 70 year old..
I know u must be seeing ppl with nice bodies n u'd also want them.. N ur willing to workout for it.. But in d long run its not worth it..
Rest is upto u.. Coz this pack that u mentioned above is a standard pack.. N u just keep on increasing ur intake with time.. Thats bout it..

Actually it's called Androstenidione it is a precursor of Testosterone and in optimal conditions the Adrenal Glands manufacture Androstenidione as a metabolite(metabolism by-product)of another hormone DHEA which stands for Di Hydro Epia Androsterone this hormone is also a precursor of Estrogen.The disadvantage of Androstenidione is it does NOT inhibit Estrogen production in fact a side effect in some men who have used this product is BREAST GROWTH. It was used by baseball players most notably Mark McGwire as a performance enhancer but since 2004 it has been a banned substance in Baseball ,The NFL,and The Olympics and for that matter so is DHEA. This product is most beneficial for men OVER the age of 40 whose hormone production generally decreases after then. Adequate Protein consumption is a good idea. Precursors of HGH(Human Growth Hormone) are also essential if you want to maintain muscle mass. Natural ways to do this in lieu of Androstenidione is LONGJACK HERB(Tong Kat Ali), Puncture Root aka Gokshura Fruit( Tribulus Terrestris), L-Glycine,GABA(Gamma Amino Butryic Acid), ZMA( Zinc Magnesium Aspartate),&BCAAs(Branch Chain Amino Acids).
These are just a few things you can do to generate good muscle mass as well as L-Arginine and L-Ornithine. L-Arginine does become NO(Nitrous Oxide) but what may NOT be common knowledge L-CITTRULINE is an amino acid made in the body from L-Ornithine and without L-Cittruline the body can't convert L-Arginine into NO(Nitrous Oxide) that's why it's better to buy L-Arginine and L-Ornithine together because they are synergistic(things that work better together.) You should skip Androstenidione because long term side effect studies have not been done concerning this supplement and the FDA banned this supplement a little over 2 Years Ago. So finding it legally is not very likely. I hope this was helpful.

Diet planning question (Muscle Building)?

I am changing my diet plan soon and I was wondering if it is a good or bad choice. I know everybody is different so no one can really give me a reliable answer, but I would like some insight. I am going from a high-carb diet to a semi-low-carb diet (while still building muscle). I read that the body can still convert fats from food to use for energy. I did the calculations and if I were to eat at least 2700 calories, the following would be:

Carbs-15%, 101g
Protein-30%, 205g
Fat-55%, 165g (20g saturated, 50 monounsaturated & polyunsaturated)

It's kind of a semi-carb backloading, so I was wondering if this would be a good diet. I am 18 years old (19 in a few months), I weigh 155lbs, I lift 5 days a week, and I play basketball for 3-4 days week for at least 1-3 hours. If you have any other suggestions, I would be happy to see some. Also, if I need to do something to prepare for this diet, please tell me. Thank you.

A good bodybuilding diet needs to follow 3 rules:
1.It should favor smaller and frequent feedings throughout the day
instead of smaller ones.
2.Every meal should have carbohydrates, protein and fat in the
correct ratios: 40% carbs, 40% protein, 20 % good fats.
3.The calories should be cycled to prevent the metabolism from
getting used to a certain caloric level.
Sample Bodybuilding Diet For Men
Meal 1 (7 AM)
1 cup of dry oats mixed with water
1 cup of egg beaters
Meal 2 (9 AM)
Meal replacement packet like Prolab's Lean Mass Complex (which has a
40/40/20 nutrient ratio) mixed with water or a protein powder (with
around 40 grams of protein) mixed with 40 grams of carbs from cream
of rice, grits, or oatmeal.
1 Tablespoon of Flaxseed Oil (Spectrum brand is best)

Recommended Basic Bodybuilding Supplements For Men
(Essential to take)
Definitely make sure that you cover at least the basics of
supplementation which are a Multiple Vitamin and Mineral formula, 3
grams of Vitamin C split in 3 equal servings throughout the day,
200mcg of Chromium Picolinate, and essential fatty acids coming from
either fish oils, flaxseed oil or extra virgin olive oil. Also, for
convenience purposes a good meal replacement or protein powder is a
great way to add valuable calories and nutrients to your diet.
