    Steroids. They are great for single dads, too.*

    You just need a good diet with plenty of variety and enough protein. I presume that your exercise regime includes weight bearing as well as ordinary fitness routines.

    If you're looking for protein supplements .... don't do it. It's far too easy to overdo it with those concentrated mixes and you'll mess up your kidneys in the process.

    The amount of time you spend making the money to buy the "products" could be spent training. Have you asked yourself why you train? I don't mean to insult you in anyway. It's an honest question.

    I am probably above the average fitness level of most major country's military personnel (which in my opinion isn't saying much), and I don't spend any money on fitness, unless you include money spent on food (which is almost a vegetarian diet). I'm not trying to boast, or say what you should or should not do. I am only trying to give a perspective.

    Do you expect to reach a certain point and then stop training? This would ultimately lead to weaker muscles, right? Do you have a goal? Is it long term or short term?

    If you were to ask me I'd say the scientific method would be to study your own body and learn how to work it without the "products," but likely you have already considered this and my little comment here is in vain.

    -edit-

    Sorry, I didn't answer your question.

    Good products: Beans (all kinds), carrots, spinach, potatoes, onions, garlic, oils, fats, nuts (all kinds that aren't rancid), tea, wine, beer, and much more. Anything that is not coated in pesticides or altered genetically will probably be more readily accepted by your body, or at least you won't have to work harder to filter the garbage out.

    I have found that, at least for me, a sure fire product is a 20 pound weight. You lift it up and let it down. Each arm 30 times, three times a day. It works great.

    Protein shakes and whatnot are pretty straight forward. I used a product called, "Weight Gainer" when I was in the army. It didn't really do much for me, because my metabolism was on hyperdrive. I was taking it 6,000 to 8,000 calories a day, easily.
    Just go for a high protein diet and trust the advice from the weight trainers- they know their stuff and this is demonstrated by the success of all they advise.
    On a side note- I discontinued using that weight gainer stuff after about 4 or 5 months.

    Most of the recommendations you get in fitness stores is bullsh!t. Just get a good, balanced diet, eating what you need, and a good balanced exercise regimen.

    I understand that. I might be wrong, but I do not think there is much in the way of good scientific evidence to suggest that a high protein diet is going to make much difference. My own suspicion is that such claims are made by commercial interests who stand to make a lot of money selling supplements. The average western diet is already very high in protein, and boosting it even more is unlikely to help.

    If you want supplements, check out the information that's routinely available from non-commercial sources. The wiki on creatine includes a whole section on its use as a supplement, as well as the information that the body normally produces its own supply of creatine. Creatine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You can make muscles grow with exercise. Steroids also help with muscle growth, however, they suppress the immune system, increase risk of osteoporosis, and have other harmful side-effects.

    I suggest a healthy diet that includes more protein intake (egg whites, lean meats, beans). For the quickest muscle increase focus on the large muscle masses in your body (legs, back/shoulders and chest). You smaller muscles groups will get exercised as well.
    Basic 2 day routine:

    Day 1. Leg squats. Leg curls. Bench Press. Incline Press. Military Press. Triceps Extensions.
    Day 2. Leg Extensions. Leg Adduction. Cable/Bar Seated Row. Shoulder Shrugs. Shoulder/Back Pull downs (sitting-to chest with cables/bar, standing-to thighs with cables/bar; vary your grip from close-in to wide-apart). Bicep Curls.
    Day 3. Rest
    Day 4. Repeat Day 1.
    Day 5. Repeat Day 2.
    Day 6. Rest

    I used this routine while in college, it help me gain 25 lbs; my legs gained the most increase.

    Asides from your diet, I would suggest that you exercise to muscle failure. Not having a heart attack, but lifting a weight to the point that you are physically incapable of lifting it another time. You may not want to life everyday, you can overtrain and stunt muscle developement, 3-4 days a week is plenty for bulking plan.

    OK. Got the good word on creatine from a bloke I met today. He was making up one of those protein shakes. I asked about it and it turns out he's an athlete, and the shake included creatine. However .... he made the point quite strongly that creatine was useful only for people like him involved in sports that use explosive energy.

    He described himself as a "thrower", I presume he means javelin because he didn't have the weightlifter style body shape that you see in shotputters - though they also use explosive energy. He said that creatine is no use to runners and other sports people who don't need energy to be expended in that particular way.

    Don't waste your time with supplements. Base your diet on fruits, vegetables and MEAT 3x a day. Eat starches on days that you exercise (preferably after a session).

    No dairy, no grains, no legumes, or cereals.
