Since ordering Nitrobol seven weeks ago I have gained about
20 pounds of straight muscle. I didn't think I could get
to this bodyweight. For a long time I was stuck at 165 but
today I am 186 and still growing. Everyone around me
things I am on the juice but when I show them the
Nitrobol bottle they want to know more.
Thanks for everything,
Lionel E. Pope II

Protein Shakes Good or Bad?
Many bodybuilders, fitness models and even celebrities endorse
protein shakes in advertisements. And it has become accepted that
these shake are needed, so they have become one of the top used
But are protein shakes good or bad?
The answer to this question depends on many factors, such as - for
who, for what goals and compared to what. In this article I will
cover these points and give you the information you need to choose
if protein shakes are right for you.
Protein shakes pros and cons
Shakes can be a good way to get in extra protein and calories for
someone looking to gain more muscle, they taste good, are affordable,
fast and easy. I feel the best time to use them is on a gaining cycle
or even a maintaining cycle. And I still recommend that most of that
persons protein intake come from real food such as eggs, beef,
chicken, turkey, fish, etc.
When it comes to losing fat and getting leaner, I do not recommend
protein shakes. Most are milk based (whey comes from milk) and for
many reasons milk products seem to impede fat loss. As a matter of
fact bodybuilders, fitness models, etc. use no protein shakes when
they are trying to get as lean as possible, they stick to real food
such as egg whites and white meat chicken to get the protein they need.
Another problem I have with protein shakes is that many have more
carbohydrates in them then protein. One top brand has 25 grams of
protein and 60 grams of carbohydrates, that's not really a protein
powder it's a carbohydrate powder with some protein in it.
Also many people experience gas, bloating, water retention, etc.
when using protein shakes.
So if you want to build up, get most of your protein from real food
and add some protein drinks between meals, after workouts, etc.
But if you want to lose fat and get lean, real foods such as
egg whites and chicken are best.
Another option to get more protein without all the extra
calories, sodium, etc. is to use a pure amino acids supplement
such as Nitrobol
