1. Don't drink protein shake as your meal.
i hope you know that protein shakes contains metal...
it might kill you over time.
Make sure you search consumer report and find that will not kill you

2. Weight Gainer gives you FAT.
most weight gainer is flavored and sugar...
it could lifesaver who is skinny than skinny guy.

3. the below supplements might give you a 5% edge - not worth the money or potential health risks: (my opinion)

Creatine
Beta-alanine
Glutamine
Taurine
Tyrosine
Multivitamins

4. Don't work out your same muscle everyday!
Muscle won't go big, even you work out everyday
muscle need rest and to recover.

5. workout your muscle hard and give much stress as you can to that muscle
whenever you workout, there will be micro-injury. but body will repair(rest) injury however they overdoes it which gives little more muscle than before.

6. DO NOT OVER TRAINING!
over-training will not do anything to your body!
over training will make you tired, wreck of sleep, dizzy and other effects.

Creatine- This has been discussed quite a bit but it has been shown to benefit brain function also.

Beta-alanine- It's a good supplement, increasing carnosine levels about 40-60 percent. Just google carnosine.
Glutamine- This is good, helps prevent muscle wasting and helps repair along with other functions.
Taurine- Probably get enough in your diet.
Tyrosine- Probably get enough in your diet.
Multivitamins- Don't leave home without it. :)
 
Milk has metal in it too(calcium), should we lay off that? What protein shakes do you drink? Or did you just read some fox news article? It's true muscles need their rest, that's why it's called getting ripped =] The muscles tear and need to repair, but you can alternate heavy and light days. I'm no health expert and neither are you so lets not give advice, kay?

don't deliberately try to sound foolish. Are you equating essential calcium found in milk to the numerous toxic metals found in protein supplements, as reported in July issue of Consumer Reports? (no, hardly Fox News!)
