Some food recommendations
by: Stephen Hopper

Hi Domenic & Paul,


My apologies for this late reply.

Paul, I agree 100% with your reply to Domenic's question. As wise Hippocrates once wrote:

" Let food be your medicine, and medicine be your food."

Domenic, you might want to consider adding the following foods to your diet.

1. Whey protein isolate (already mentioned by Paul).
2. Cod Liver oil or Krill oil
3. Spirullina
4. Chlorella
5. Wheat Grass juice
6. Barley Grass juice

The Whey is a great source of protein. The oils are a wonderful source of Omega 3 fatty acids. The Chlorella, Spirullina, Wheat and Barley grasses are loaded to the gunwhales with every kind of nutrient you could wish for. They also chelate heavy metals (including mercury) out of the body.

I hope this has been of interest and help to you. Paul, any comments on what I have written. Your superior insight would be most welcome.

Kind regards,

Best Supplement
by: Paul from

Hi Dominic,

There sure is - FOOD. A lot of poeple recently did a survey for me and this question, what supplements to take, came up an awful lot. So I'm writing up a dedicated section on supplements in the nutrition section of Project Dragon...

...but let me answer some of this now....

Supplements are just that - supplemental to a good balanced diet. Get as much whole foods into you as possible, protein at EVERY meal, and a good balance of healthy fats - then there is no need to supplement your diet with expensive and unnecessary powders and pills.

Ultimately, if you aren't stimulating your muscles to grow, and not eating a full nutritious diet to support that stimulation then no amount of supplements will help you get a better physique or improve performance.

With that said a good whey protein can be a great back up, in case you get rushed and risk missing a meal. I keep a protein shaker and protein serving in my motorbike, car and office, so I know if I'm stuck in traffic, caught out or just rushed in the office I can make sure I get my protein. I also use it in whole food based recipies to increase protein content, same if I'm making snack bars etc.

Ultimately it can be a useful SUPPLEMENT to a diet. It's supplemental not a substitute for proper diet. If you're diet is not 90-100% perfect then these products will have little to NO benefit or impact. If 95% of what you are eating isn't right 5% won't make much difference.

For the most part supplements are a waste of money and time.

Hope that makes sense.
