I don't consume anything I don't like.

I actually like my multi-vitamin since I switched to gummy form. Other than that I don't do any supplements or foods that I only eat for some benefit.

Any brand of protein powder, upsets my stomach. Not yucky or anything, just does not agree with me.

Can't say I have. I only eat food that I like.

Not going to go there. I do have one, but don't need for it to get shot down. Interesting question though. There are a lot of things that are so good for you, but don't taste the best. You just plug your nose and down it. emoticon

Fish oil pills. They give me nasty fish burps!

I have no idea what Leucine is, or what it is supposed to do, it sure sounds icky!

But anyways, here is mine; cod liver oil!
I've finally found a lemon flavored one I can totally stomach. The plain one truly turns my gut, and I used to take it for years..

I appreciate the information but I can't argue with my results. I have added over 1" to my arms since I switched to leucine as my recovery supplement a few months ago. Granted this wasn't the only change I made, but based on the recommendations I received to take leucine I don't want to rock the boat when I'm making good progress. I planned on 3-4 bulk phases for 6 weeks each with short cutting phases in between (2 down), then I will cut all supplements to maintain for a while.

The foods you describe have been a heavy part of my diet for the past 19 months, it has just been difficult for me to build muscle.

I know of no nutritional or health benefit for taking leucine. It is just a branched chain amino acid. I am sure you are already meeting your protein needs through your food intake. Do you eat foods like: lean meats, beef, pork, poultry, fish, seafood, beans, lentils, legumes, eggs, milk, cheese, cottage cheese, peanuts, nuts, seeds???

I hate to hear that you are forcing yourself to take something that is not necessary--it is a waste of your money.

Chances are in our goals we've all worked something into our routine that we just do not look forward to eating or taking every day.

Hands down for me it's Leucine powder. Doesn't mix with water, tastes and feels like chalk powder, gotta spoon it in and rinse it down, yuck.

This could be a fun thread, let's hear yours!
