I have just recently got back into weight training and I am looking to start some supplements here next month. My goals are pretty simple cut some fat and gain strength. I am currently around 210 and would like to be around 195 - 2000 range but much leaner than I am now. I have two question I would like answered (sorry if its been asked before but I did not see anything). I am looking at a budget of around $50 - $75 a month so please keep this in mind when answering. 1. Is there really a major difference in one whey protein from another? I am sure there is for someone who is really into Bodybuilding but I am just trying to get a little healthier. Would someone with my goals see a whole lot of difference between a jug from walmart or one from GNC. If so would I be wiser to put all of my budget into a top notch product or invest in 2 or 3 lower tiered products? 2. My curent plan is to start with a whey protein (muscle milk $26.99 for 2 lbsCNW's website) Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL Powder ($6.99 per 100 grams) Some decent multi-vitamin approx $20 (still open to suggestions) This would put me in the lower end of my price range. I am not sure how long these would last but I am assuming around a month. If someone has a better suggestion please tell me.
