    Can you eat a steak and can you do manual labor? If the answers to my questions are yes, then you have the answers to yours. As for diet and supplements, seek the FAQ. I don't see any reason you can't be taking just about everything endorsed by this forum (protein, fish oil, and creatine being the most important, as far as I'm concerned, but BCAA's & Beta Alanine aren't going to kill you).

    If you can't trace a sup back to a food source (creatine comes from just about any animal protein source, BCAA's and BA are just amino acids, fish oil come from fish (duh), Protein is a macronutrient (fats, carbs and protein), etc.) then it's probably not worth your time right now IMO.

    the short story in terms of diet:
    Eat lean meat, veggies, fruits, nuts, & oats. Eat every 2-3 hours (or supplement with a supershake), avoid processed grains (white breads) and most foods that come in a box or sealed bag (no twinkies, no sugary drinks (except post workout), no potato chips, no cheezits, etc.).

    There, d&S in a nutshell... now go read the FAQ in here (wouldn't hurt to read all the stickies in here), then head over to Strength and power and read THEIR FAQ. This thread will be closed unil I receive a private message that you have done so.

    Thread re-opened now that the OP has educated himself.

    A little off-topic, but that's a great idea, closing and re-opening after a PM. It saves a lot of space on the forum.

    Yeah, I've taken a liking to it. this is only the 3rd or 4th time I've done it, but if its somebody who won't return, the thread disappears, and it saves on a lot of flaming that might turn away an otherwise usefull contributor. Don't get me wrong, I like the meatheads in my forum, but sometimes we get a little carried away...
