Beginners —don’t consume supplements until you read this:
Its always a good idea to build a foundation of good habits before you start spending money on supplements.
Supplements as the word suggest is to supplement your diet.
But what if your diet is horrible! Supplements won’t do you any good and you’ll be simply wasting your money.
Listed below are two simple question that every beginner should ask themselves before they can even think of taking a supplement.
Question no #1:
Have you found an activity that you know you really enjoy and know you can sustain for a long time?
I personally have a feeling that I will be working out with weights till I die! Do you have that feeling with activity in particular? How about a sport?
What’s the point to this?
Most beginners who join a gym or a dance class or Yoga, get bored and stop doing these activities after a period of few weeks. What happens if you are using a whey protein in this case?
Did you know that protein requirements for a sedentary adult and an active adult differs quite a bit?? Read thisto know more.
I have seen it with people that I know—they get excited one day and join a gym, buy a whey protein box, a pre workout, workout shoes all in the same day.
And after 3 weeks, BOOM! They becomes lazy, and ultimately their whey protein expires!
Question no #2:
Have you started eating at least 80% of your food which is not out of a can or a box?
This is a very obvious statement. If you think you are going to build muscle by eating burgers, cereals, or ready made dinners just because you think you are having whey alongside?
There is nothing more anabolic than real food.
Did you know that there are so many phytonutrients that are yet to be discovered that you get from the food that you eat?
Well, I agree the condition of soil is devoid of nutrients, and therefore supplementation with omega-3 oils, a multivitamin can help, but even then I would highly recommend you guys to build up a solid foundation of eating healthy and being active first.
If you have extra money and have the urge to spend it on supplements, I would advise you to instead spend on a good coach, you’ll be much better off!
