comment Circuit training plan and diet
Can you give more details about your body composition? Do you know how much body fat do you have? Can you see upper part of your abs?

comment Is running 10 miles twice a week too much when is combined with swimming and weightlifting?
+1, but can you elaborate "if you don't have a lot of base"? What would be the base for long runs (let say 10 miles twice per week)?

comment If you consume a lot of protein but don't exercise does it go to waste?
@RobinAshe Can you provide any white paper which backs up your claim? We can talk about playing with carb intake, but in the most casses, only when body fat is 10% or lower. Also, when we are talking about body composition, physical preformance, TEF, choleserol, oxidative stress, hormon balance and so on, then source of calories DO metter. But in the terms of weight loss (or gain) a calorie is simply a calorie. Weight Loss Fudamentals

@RobinAshe In that case, you are walking miracle as law of conservation of energy doesn't apply to you.

@RobinAshe As long as you are not in caloric surplus, you won't gain any weight. To talk about amount or even weight of food and in the same time ignoring caloric value when we are talking about storing / loosing fat is next to pointless.

@RobinAshe - Andreas is correct. Short answer - yes. Long one - no. Point is that body can't store proteins, but can convert them into carbs which then can be stored as fat. Devil here is - to get fat from protein, body needs a lot of energy and in this case caloric value of protein is much more closer to 2-3 kcal then to 4 kcal.

comment Are there health risks associated with protein shakes?
@JohnP IFBB athletes consume up to 500g of protein per day during the whole year, year after year and none of them reported any problems with kidenys. So yes, in my book it's a myth.

comment Taking Protein Shake with BCAA tablets?
Uhm, what is your question - "is it ok to take protein shake with BCAA pils" or "is it ok to take proteins (and BCAA) with green tea and caffeine"?

comment Low dose multivitamin?
healthy-vitamin-choice.com/athletes-requirements.html Reputable sources are at the bottom. It's a little bit tricky to give you neutral source for such high intake because there are littery millions of "studies" sponsored by supplement industry. If you really want to know the optimal need for your body, you should consult with sport medicine doctor.

comment Low dose multivitamin?
That's all great, but you didn't list sufficient levels for active person. E.g. RDA for vitamin C is 90mg, but very active persons due to high level of free radicals in body should take up to 2g (2 222% of RDA). Try to eat enough veggies and fruits to hit 2 g of C (e.g. to get to this number, you would need to eat 29 oranges). Not to mention it's very expensive.

What is your level of activity? Did you try to buy supplements at your local drug store or in (sport) supplements shop?
