Which is the best food for a bodybuilder who doesn't want to take supplements ? And how to eat it (how much daily) please help

I can't tell you how much as your intake will vary with your aerobic calorie output. Glad you're lifting. ...Read more

How much magnesium citrate is safe to take? Is 400 mg to high? I take it to help with anxiety. I keep reading conflicting information on dosage.

How much magnesium citrate is safe to take? Is 400 mg to high? I take it to help with anxiety. I keep reading conflicting information on dosage.

Titrate: There are individual differences in magnesium absorption, so there is no standard dose. Basically, "titrate to bowel tolerance".
