Don"t be afraid to meet with a naturopath, most health store deal with them and they are specifically trained to help you with supplements needs, which ones are right for you and in what dosage. It may take time to find the right one, which can be a bit costly, but most private insurances cover the costs (In Canada).
Plan: Protein Power
Another great resource is http://www.consumerlab.com/. They test supplements to make sure they contain the ingredients they are supposed to, and they have a lot of information about supplements and which ones have good evidence that they work. Although some of the info on the site is available only by subscription, most of it is free.
To elaborate on what I posted, I have been able to buy stack II as it was not recalled for some time from where I live. As it has been recalled now I've bought Stack 5, an ephedra free product.
The first time I tried it I felt as though it had given me a boost before my workout but after a week realsie it is not doing so and what's more I've eaten the same foods and feel/see myself putting on weight. My clothes feel tighter.
I'm distressed about it as workouts are not effective and I'm not at the same level of confidence in my appearance.
Are there any suggestions on what I can do to again boost my metabolism and get back to being fit?
