What for?: Why do you want to take protein supplements? If you are eating a regular mixed diet, there is no need for protein supplements. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
