The most beneficial thing you can do is correctly calculate your BMI (Body Mass Index) and balance your diet accordingly to your calorie needs. One of the biggest issues is to just do what "hes doing or shes doing" when you could give your body so much less stress and enjoy reliable controllable results.
DIET IS KEY while supplements are to support and aid the nutritional needs. Supplements aren't always a necessity, but do however offer promising results used in the right way.
As humans, we aren't muscular by nature but do however have the potential to increase our ability to become more muscular every day if we keep pushing ourselves and use the correct nutritional tools to get there.
I always recommend to get help from a trained professional if you think you would struggle to do some of the things or use some of products i would recommend.
