    What is the best body building supplement for me?

    I'm 14 years old. 5 foot 9 and 125 pounds. I'm starting high school football next and need to get more muscle on my lean body. Please let me know what you think the best body building supplement would be for me.

    Food, Water and Sleep. That's all you need. Eat meat, chicken, pork, eggs, veggies, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and have some cheese and milk. Don't worry about how much. Eat till you are satisfied. You do not need any specific type of supplement or pill.

    Meat, potatoes and eggs,, water and sleep.

    Work hard, eat hard, sleep at least 8 hours a day, don't waste your money on powders.

    The best supplement you could buy would be a book called "Starting Strength" by Mark Ripptoe.

    I am in agreement with everyone who posted above. Check out this blog I wrote about why I don't use exercise supplements.
    "In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they couldn't be more different."

    "You can have anything you want, but you can't have everything you want."

    Everything that has already been said
    My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.

    Cool

    All of the above is great advice.

    Believe me...if there was a magic supplement...I would have found it, because it seems over the years I have tried them all. Some may help for a time but their effects are hit or miss between individuals and in the end are not lasting.

    Admittedly I do down some fish oil and a couple of generic items...but as as far as something to help in your training, as others have said in this post...train smart and hard, eat right, drink plenty of water, and sleep soundly. Make those the foundation for your training, and save your $$$ on the supplements.

    I know this may not be the answer that you are looking for, but if I had back every $$$ that I wasted on useless supplements over the years, my wallet would be pretty fat.

    Good luck!

    Only thing I would add to what everyone has said is whole milk.
