So i’m starting to take working out seriously. I have all my protein, creatine, muscle mass, and Animal Pak Multivitamin. I was wondering if there is something I can put in my water (like a powder) or something so that when I take it to school or work it will help my metabolism. Because when I work and go to school I really don’t eat/drink anything until I get home. So I end up missing 2-3 meals a day compared to the 5 i’m supposed to have Let me know. Thanks
If you want to take it throughout the day, I’d recommend that you take BCAAs (branch amino acids) to keep your anabolic state. It also helps maintain muscle mass and growth. You mentioned that you are already taking proteins, but you can take weight gainers like QuickMass or MutantMass since you want to have 5 meals a day and keep up with the calories. You can shop for proteins wherever, like this site http://active8canada.com/categories/Weight-Gainers/

I’m considering adding protein supplements into my diet, but all of the manufacturers throw around terms such as nitrogen balance, creatine, etc.
-What is creatine/what does it do specifically?
+What are its side effects (negative/positive)?
+Is it naturally produced in the body (i.e. testosterone) and would long-term use cause harm (as steroids)?
-Should I look for a product with creatine?
-What is nitrogen balance and why is it such a big deal?
-How much protein should I take in per day with an active workout schedule?
-What’s a good product to use? Best value (most stuff/best results for the buck?)
-Do products claiming to regulate genes actually work and are they worth the ridiculous pricetag? If yes, what’s a good one to use?
-Creatine is an element that is mainly found in red meat but it is also produced by our body in the form of amino acids.
-Creatine enhances the ability of muscles during high-intensity workouts. Side affects that have been shown among users are cramps and water retention.
-Creatine is NOT a steroid although misinformed people might believe otherwise.
-Whether are not you should used creatine depends on your goals.
-I don’t know what Nitrogen balance is but I do know that a product that contains nitrogen is called nitric oxyde. The purpose of n.o. is to provide better blood flow in the muscle. It’s a good product to consume before a workout to give an extra boost.
-You should consume 1-1.2 grams of protein per lbs of body weight. Keep in mind that you shouldn’t rely only on protein supplements but also on lean meat as well.
-There are so many different products out there! In terms of nitric oxyde, one of the most popular is N.O. Explode by BSN.
In terms of proteins a popular and quality brand is Optimum. I can’t really help you in terms of creatine because there are different types (monohydrate, phosphate, citrate, etc.) enough to give you a headache!
