Gain Weight Fast Without Supplements......

Creatine, NO2 / Nitric Oxide, protein powders, etc...all are praised as a "must have" in your bodybuilding diet to supposedly help you gain weight.  Well, if your workout plan is not helping you build muscle fast, you better read on...

Everyone seems to be buying the latest hyped-up supplement to help them gain weight and build muscle.

Supplements such as NO2, creatine, ribose, HMB, CLA, glutamine, myostatin inhibitors, and others are flying off the shelves, being bought by those desperately trying to find something, anything, that will help them build on some serious muscle mass.

Well, if millions and millions of dollars are being spent on all of these products, then why aren't we seeing bigger and more defined people in the gyms or walking on the streets?

If these supplements really worked liked they're supposed to, why are the individuals that buy and use them not looking any different in the mirror or why do they still seem to not know how to gain weight and muscle?

They still aren't gaining any real weight / muscle!

Let me ask you a question.

If you are spending anywhere from $30.00 to $200.00 a month, shouldn't you expect to visually see an increase in muscle and weight gain, week to week, month to month?

Take a real good look at prisoners. These guys don't use any supplements whatsoever.   They don't follow your typical bodybuilding / workout routine.

The food they eat is "high school cafeteria"-like.  Nothing like your popular "bodybuilding diet".

Yet, some of the most massive, most muscular, strongest individuals are prisoners.

As a matter of fact, the typical weight lifting prisoner gains way more muscle mass than your average gym member that stuffs themselves with all kinds of supplements!

(Think about that for a minute)

It seems that most skinny individuals feel that they need a special or certain supplement that will “boost their testosterone levels, change their genes to become more anabolic, more aminos to increase protein synthesis, etc.”

They feel that they aren’t reaching their goals of packing on muscle mass onto their frames because they are not taking the right supplement or the correct amount.

However, why aren’t we seeing any difference in the people that take these supplements?

Here’s something you need to know:

Many ads for supplements claim that their product will raise your testosterone levels, growth hormone levels, or other anabolic hormones “300%”, “675%”, “129%”, or whatever.

However, a lot of times, these supplements don’t raise the hormones by that amount.

Saying that, even if it did, that doesn’t necessarily mean that raising a certain hormone by 300% is going to give you any additional muscle mass.

As an example, in an article I wrote titled “Will Raising My Growth Hormone Help Me Build Muscle Mass?”, I pointed out:

“The body's natural GH production is from 1 IU to 2 IU per day, at most, even during a weight training workout.

However, it takes at least 4 IU a day to see a real difference in any muscle you may build.”

Well, right now there are many supplements out on the market that supposedly will raise your natural growth hormone levels.

However, there is absolutely no GH-raising supplement available without a prescription that will help you raise that hormone to at least 4 IU per day……..which is the amount that’s required to begin to see any type of change to muscle or body fat.

Sure, their may be a supplement that will raise a hormone level by 300%, but it may require you to raise that level 2000% to see any difference in the amount of weight / muscle you gain / build.

Again, think back to my example of prisoners.

So, next time you have to choose between either buying the latest muscle building supplement or paying this month’s rent, I suggest you choose to keep the roof over your head.
