    What does the point that you can get more amino acids than any correctly functioning human body can possibly use from simply eating lean protein/eggs/dairy have to do with the use of bromide in junk food?

    You're not taking supplements in lieu of eating bread, OBOB isn't advocating white bread and soda as an amino acid source, so I'm really not seeing the relevance.

    If your thyroid goes so does your plans to workout or take whatever approach you're talking about. It's all part of your physical health, whether you know it or not.

    Weightlifting, or staying truly fit, has always been about mind, body and soul.

    tldr; abstract:

    Amino acid supplementation is a waste of money unless you participate in fasting or otherwise don't have access to protein.

    Reasons:
    1. Amino acid supplements are expensive compared to food
    2. Food provides more reliable amino content at less cost

    You guys are all about "bro" weightlifting - that's the problem.

    OK but what does that have to do with anything we're talking about?

    If you're saying aminos are important for thyroid health, fine, but the egg is still the cheaper and more reliable way to get them.

    Whether you take amino acids for weightlifting, thyroid health or hair growth is wholly irrelevant to the discussion.

    In either case, amino acid supplementation is a waste of money, unless you meet the two conditions I mentioned above.

    Because poisons are in our foods. You have to be careful just eating food. Is that to hard to understand?

    Tell you what, go back and tell what you think about post 207. I think you'll find that interesting.

    Yeah, but what does that have to do with the supplement / whole food amino acid source debate? The two sides aren't "take amino acid supplements and don't eat" and "no, eat white bread."

    Sure the alleged dangers of brominated foods are relevant to everyone, but if you screw your thyroid up that's a major problem whether you're getting your amino acids from food or supplements.

    The irony in that statement above is the fitness industry is one of the least regulated; the quality of any product is dubious to say the least.

    Not all of them/foods - just do your own research on it. I already told you three or four times that I eat a lot of eggs.

    It has to do with foods, or tap water in this case.

    If you eat a lot of eggs then amino acid supplementation is even more of waste.

    Not if you do you own "research" on them before buying. :whistle:

    I never in my life thought I would see a guy recommending supplements tell guys who are recommending people eat whole foods that they are too into "bro" weightlifting. My head might explode.

    For you it is. I've done extensive research on them I'm worth the extra money it takes to buy them. The benefits out weigh the co$t :happy:

    Again, you're totally missing the point. Like totally, comprehensively. You're spending 10x what you need to in order to get your aminos.

    :laugh:

    I think my head has already exploded three or four times in this thread.

    Stay away from food, it's full of poison.
