Should i be using any supplements

Just wondering what yall think. Right now i am 5'11 and 260. Just got back into working out after my acl tear. My goal is not so much muscle as it losing weight. I have been working out/cardio three times a week and biking on the weekends. I see all these people taking stuff before going to the gym, but i am concerned about weight gain on these products creatin for one. What would be some things i could use to help my keep the muscle i have but not full of calories. Also I already eat a good amount of protein. My normal meals include. Koshi cereal in the morning, Tuna/ canned chicken sandwich and some baked chips. and i eat baked chicken every night. Also some sort of veggie with every meal.

Thanks

You could add a fat burn product to your routine. You definately want a multivitamin...obviously with a low cal diet, you arent getting anywhere near the nutrients you need.

With a fat burn, you gotta stick with it, and follow the directions. Adding that to your cardio routine and nutrition can help out.

Your main concern should be number of calories consumed, and from what sources. Save your supplement money for after the fat is gone, especially if you don't care to take a metabolic enhancer (fat burner). After you've lost 20lbs or so, you may change your mind to get a little extra boost, but staying natural while you work on your dietary habits is a good idea.

Creatine will make you gain "weight", but it's primarily water weight. That said, if you primary concern is fat loss, it'd be a waste of money to take creatine while in a caloric deficit.

Anytime I have a connective tissue injury I supplement:

1g Lysine
1g Glycine
500 mg Vitamin C

three times a day for about a month. All are required for connective tissue repair and growth.
