    If you had 100 bucks a month to spend on supplements what would you get and where would you get it from?

    Bodybuilding.com has the cheapest stuff IMO. I'm not sure what else I would get but you cant go wrong with a tub of Whey Protein.

    Quality food from the local market to ensure my marconutrient profile is dialed in (this is 95% of the equation).

    After that, some tasty yet nutritious snacks/shake fixin's for those in-between meal times. Some whey protein falls in here for my shakes.

    A mulitvitamin and mineral supp to ensure no major defiencies.

    Glucosamine and a fish oil/EFA for a little preventative maintainance.

    All the left over cash then goes to my Starbuck's fund.

    Whey
    Fish Oil/Flaxseed
    Glucosamine/Chronditin/MSM
    multivitamin
    melatonin (improves sleep quality) - i wouldn't do it every day though
    veggie powder (i dont eat enough vegetables and can't force myself to)

    Anything else would depend on your goals and which sport your doing. You're not going to really need a post-workout carb supplement if your just lifting weights (but you might if you're doing long distance runs).

    Are you on Crack-Cocaine? They are no better than going to GNC.

    Biochem Biopure Whey (AdvantageSupplements.com)
    Bulk Casein powder (ProteinFactory.com), cut into the whey at a 1:4 ratio
    BSN NO-Xplode (MassNutrition.com)
    BSN Cellmass (MassNutrition.com)
    ZMA (any -- they're pretty much all the same)
    Multivitamin

    That's everything I use and it's pretty darn close to the $100

    If I had money to burn, I'd probably add Biotest Alpha Male, but it's too expensive IMO.

    dpsnutrition.com is the cheapest with shipping for me since I am in the same shipping region.

    I never said anything about what is better, I said the Bodybuilding.com is cheaper. Go online and check it out. Even if you have a gold card at GNC

    That's what he was referring to. Their prices aren't the worst in the world, but, by no means, are they the cheapest.

    Is it worth getting a weight gainer? Or am I just better off sticking to regular whey protein? Also, should I get the BSN Stack with Nitrix in it, or is it just a better choice to stick only with NO-Xplode and CellMass?

    Just start off easy. Try NO-Xplode before your workout and muscle milk with your afterworkout meal.

    You should see huge results with that.

    As for Nitrix, I haven't heard anything positive on that. Everyone tells me it is a waste of money.

    It's not that Nitrix, itself, is a waste of money, but it's unnecessary if you've got the other two going. I recommend the NO-X... and Cellmass, both. Whether you go w/ weight gainer or protein powder depends on your individual goals.

    I wouldn't get myself into any BSN products, i personally don't like them, and since the question was what kind of supplements to get, i would go for probably just protien and not put my body through all those other supplements, getting stronger takes time and hard work supplements do help but come at a price

    Wow, nobody has mentioned this and it should definitely be on your list BCAA's Branch chain amino acids. Personally I like NoXplode better than a lot of it's competitors, I feel it's effective and it tastes much better. Protein is key too, you should be consuming 2grams of protein per lb of body weight if you're looking to gain lean muscle. Whey is a quick digesting protein and casein protein is a slower digesting one, to avoid going into a catabolic state I'd have a nice Cassein protein shake before bed, to keep your muscles fueled. With 100 bucks as your spending limit, some of the bsn products can get a bit pricey. Cell mass is good, but you could also buy diarganine malatate in bulk and esterfied creatine in bulk, mix it yourself into crystal light, gatorade etc and have similar effects. You can also buy the NoXplode ingredients in bulk and save money, but I don't bother as I actually like the orange flavor of it. So now that I've rambled i'd say, Protein, BCAAs, a good creatine product and a good NO product. done properly that should just fit into your budget.
