  1. Mar 2, 2015 #1
    so should I add a phosphorus supplement to my diet? I currently take 1 walmart brand multi vitamin and half and iron pill a day. I don't eat much meat but I drink milk to make up for the protein and calcium, i'll be going on a diet soon concisting of about 4 cups of milk, 50 grams of whey protein and creatine monohydrate mixed with lemonaid during workouts. for breakfast it will be a bowl of oatmeal and apples for fiber and for dinner 1 400-600 cal microwave dinner.

    also what do you guys think of DHEA, before when I was working out I was taking half a pill and I don't know if it was doing anything but it had this side effect of taking the water out of my skin?

    This is best answered by your doctor or nutritionist. I'm sorry but we can't help you further on this.

    Please note that nutritionists are not legally protected professions in many countries. This means that anyone could begin calling themselves a nutritionist and go about dispensing advice with no training. A dietitian however is a credited, legally protected profession concerned with advising on diet.
