Supplements

When is the best time to take them? I regulally exercise but I guess the body wont take what it doesnt need, so are they best taken before or after exercise, before or after eating?

I'd suggest you'd take the protein after lifting weights.

[edit]
It doesn't necessarily need to be with food. Is it flavored? If not, if you have a blender you can mix some (soy or regular) milk, some fruit, the protein mix and mix it together to get a smoothie and drink it that way. It should taste a lot better.

Yeah, ive tried mixing it with smoothies and stuff, but it always makes the smoothies taste like shit. Do you have any advice for a better suppliment? I thought that its best to do around eating time so your stomach is in full working order to digest it and use it all.

IT really depends on the supplement and the purpose for which you are taking it. If it is protein, to help gain muscle or weight, my suggestion is a couple of times a day, most preferably within 45 minutes of waking up, and within 45 minutes of finishing your weight training workout. Also... any more than 40 grams of protein at a clip can't be process and is wasted. My suggestion is get whey protein from GNC, and take 40 grams worth twice a day. You can mix it with skip milk to get a decent tasting beverage.
