The most useful one I have found is L-Glutamine.

Basically just a protein that aides your recovery allowing you to train hard day after day.
I've used creatine also but did not notice any difference.

Having said that, the better your diet is the less you require the use of supplements.
These days I'd only use Glutamine if I've had an extended period out of the gym, or bad diet - Over chritmas, new years etc.

for pre workout i take NO-Explode by BSN... gives you so much energy and focus it aint even funny... alot of people reckon its crap but i have only ever had fantastic results from it

another one i recommend is low carb casein protein... you take it before bed and it slowly releases protein to your muscles over a long period of time (6-8 hours they reckon) since i have taken it i am not as sore the next day and get better sleep even!

I am of the opinion that all supplements are a waste of money if you are eating right.

That is, plenty of meat, fish, chicken, eggs, vegetables and fruit.

If you keep the bulk of your diet as above, and stay away from processed rubbish, your body will be getting as much goodness as it can absorb.

Suggest speaking to a nutrionist or someone like Ray Kelly who's advice would be invaluable to controlling weight, yet sustaining power and performance I would think?

There's big merit here in these words.

(Pity I don't strictly adhere myself!)

Great for recovery. Before and after workouts. I drink it as a nightcap also. Puts me to sleep like a bullet.

yep im doing pretty well keeping natural too. only really use a supplement if you are finding deficiency in a certain area. the only real artificial thing i use is sports drink. appropriate hydration is such a big key.

Yea , thats exactly what I was thinking.
My metabolism works too hard I think..
How the hell can u slow it down>>

Is it also possible for every single person in the world to put on weight, or can we be genetically born not to put it on?

its genetic. its part of your body structure. its even part of your personality!

look at ways to speed up your metabolism. try the opposite.

the personality thing is a big key. a lot of amounts of weight and metabolism come down to lifestyle factors. stress, anxiety and nerve actually burn body fat. people who are active, argumentative, outdoor personality types who are constanty searching for new & exciting experiences are almost always thin & have low body fat percentage.
