Hey Marc,

I want to start eating 5 meals a day, unfortunately I do not have the time to stop and get me a second meal at work. I know i could use a meal-replacement instead. my question is… Would you recomend Muscle milk as meal-replacement ? I understand you could get quality protein, and carbs from it. If not, what are other good supplements?

Thanks for all your help,



Muscle Milk can be used as a meal replacement. It’s not specifically marketed as one but it can be used as one. In fact, I have done that a few times myself!

I also recommend EAS brand MRP (meal replacement products). They taste good, mix well and are of good quality.

Just remember that an MRP is something you take because you need an extra meal or you can’t get that real meal in. Don’t use it as a regular meal.

What are some good basic supplements?

Thursday, September 15th, 2005


hey its me again, i love youre podcast and ive been looking for supplements that are right for me but im not sure what any of them do, im looking for something to boost my workout, make my muscles stronger/bigger faster.



Basic Supplementation:

Post workout shake: 40-50 grams of whey protein (this is essential); you
can throw in between 50-100 grams of dextrose and 5-10 grams of creatine
to spice it up, but the whey is essential.

Fish oil/EFA — 5-15 grams per day.

Joints (if necessary) — glucosamine, chondritin and MSM. 1-2 grams, 1-2 grams, and 2
grams per day are the upper limits. You can half that when feeling good.


***Get this stuff in order and you should see some nice progression for a while.

What exactly is the nutrional benefit of Fish Oil?

Thursday, September 1st, 2005


What exactly is the nutrional benefit of Fish Oil? I know that it is labelled a ‘good fat.’ But how does it help in weight training programs. Thanks ahead for the advice.




Omega 3’s are a polyunsatured fat that can be found in such sources like fish and nuts. You will find this Omega-3 in Salmon, coconuts, peanut butter and other fish. There are many health benefits to this particualr supplement. Here’s just a few:

  • Increases growth hormone levels (promotes muscle growth)
  • Reduced blood clotting
  • Heart protection
  • Dilates blood vessels
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Suppresses inflammation
  • Relieves depression

One benefit that isn’t listed here is that taking in an essential fatty acid can actually increase your metabolism. That’s right. Taking a fat pill can actually help you to lose weight.
