            it's absolutely not cheaper unless you buy whey from retarded sources
            eggs don't even have too much protein, whey is way more viable when you're cutting for example or simply don't want to eat 4k kcal to get 200g protein

              how about you post your whey sources homosexual. Aldi protein powder is 18 bucks, a dozen eggs cost 1.20. You get 15 dozen eggs for the price of a tub of protein powder with 19 servings of protein. It's 570 grams of protein vs 1050. You're a nagger and you don't lift.

                By eating over a pound or more of meat everyday with various other cheap everyday protein sources like milk, greek yogurt on sale, I only have 6ish eggs in the morning . I've been doing this for six years now, it's just food. Whey is overpriced asf, I'll buy it in the summer for delicious smoothies since most fruit is on sale.

                Drinking over 100gs of whey is also very disgusting. How you do that is also a good question

                let's break it down with my prices
                my last whey was a 4kg bucket bought for ~48€, which makes it around 1,5 EUR for 100g of pure protein
                the cheapest eggs I can find in brand supermarkets are around 2,25€ for a 10stk pack, with the whole pack having around 65g protein in total
                100g protein for 1,5€ is more lucrative than 65g for 2,25€ and that alone proves you haven't lifted long enough to make any research
                anyway, where can you find a dozen of eggs for 1,5€? I live in Eastern Europe and that's a remarkably low price even for the local standards.

      Yes? And this allows the muscles to use more energy via more atp, and also has a cell volumising effect allowing more water into the muscle tissue, yes?

      Glucose is the primary fuel of the brain and electrolyte imbalances causes memory problems.

      Next.

      Increases the rate at which muscles burn energy (atp uptake), this increases heart rate (and therefore metabolism), the process causes muscular bloating (which decreases risk of injury and makes you look bigger), the whole process increases testosterone

      Metabolism is also increased through increased bowel movements for some
      It also decreases risk of cancer

    I don't take creatine because it makes me have exploding shits. I've tried both types and they both do the same.
    The strength I got was great abd it definitely increased my rep ranges

    It's the most studied supplement of all time. Do your own research.

    My former roommate (who is a femoid) is considering taking creatine, but is aware that it has the potential to make women blow up like balloons. She's really thin and toned now but wants to increase her definition. I really want to convince her to take it, bros, just to see her belly swell up like she's pregnant.

      The swelling is only temporary.

            I want to but her body is also nice and tight from her doing exotic dancing so I'd fear it'd be a waste but also I want her to grow her ass and tits

    U have to have the right genetics for it. I’m a hyper responder and 3g of creatine hcl may as well be anavar. It boosts my lifts 20% and takes a full minute off my 5k row PR

    Looking at a creatine monohydrate supplement and pre workout:
    Creatine supplement: 3g of creatine
    Pre-workout: 2.5g of creatine
    Should I get both or just start with the pre workout?

      Take 5G daily
      Pre-workout just eat a little amount of sugar from fruits or anything

        I started lifting weighing 260lbs and I’m down to 228lbs now. My goal is 210-215, is it still smart to take it?

    Just have a decent diet plan, have a cup of coffee and train properly.

      Protein is literally just protein. Simple as. It's good if you don't want to eat a gorillion chicken breasts or tins of sardines.
      The other three are wholesale memes.

        You only need like 25% of your diet to be from protein. Assuming your average diet requires 2500 calories per day, that is about 625 calories from protein or about 156 grams. While I don't advocate for the "american diet" if you ate what the FDA recommends for the food tree you would hit that every day no problem. Unless you are significantly under weight it just makes taking a shit more expensive.

              The thing is, it's not even hard to hit 170g just eating wholefoods though
