    I use nothing but good food, with one exception. I have a post workout of whey isolate in coconut water. Otherwise, just food.

    I need to update my profile, but I've put on 15 pounds in 3 months. There is fat loss there too, so it's tough to say exactly how much muscle gain there was without a body composition measurement. But it's worked great, and is a hell of a lot cheaper than using supplements.

    The only thing everyone should supplement is vitamin d. Otherwise it can all be derived from clean eating.

    Oh man, damn -- that's almost the exact recipe, verbatim, I got from a guy who's a huge muscle builder. Can you tell me where you find all those supplements? Cause I've tried GNC but they've only got a fraction!

    I especially like the cocoa after a workout. Something about a little bit of chocolate really does the trick. I also add cayenne pepper to mine, but I think you basically get the same effect from your turmeric and nutmeg.
