of the fast paced speedy world that we live in. Generally supplements include amino acids, essential
fatty acids, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
you are new to this exciting adventure and you don’t know a lot about
nutrition. I have included some words with definitions to make this process a
little easier on you.
acids: Organic compounds that combine to form proteins. Amino acids and
proteins are the building blocks of life.

As an added feature, I will
also give you some information on different weight loss supplements and workout
supplements that might be of some benefit to you.
Form Is Better For Absorption
can find your supplements in liquid form rather than another form, they tend to
absorb better thereby providing for the greatest absorption in your cells. This
would include anything in a gel cap with liquid in it. Try to look for products
that give you all the necessary vitamins and minerals as well as 5,000 units of
anti-oxidants to fight against aging and cancer.
Powder… A Sure Shot Recovery From Intense Workouts
athletes use protein powder as supplementation to recover from intense workouts or just to boost
their protein intake so they can help with the building of muscle mass. Protein
comes in two forms, a powder or a liquid. The liquid is handy because you can
toss one in your gym bag for a tasty fast treat right after your intense
workout. Protein powder can also be used as a weight loss shake.
Physical Perfection… Obtained With A Two Part
If you want to speed up your recovery from
exercising, we can attack that through correct diet and supplementation. The
two part approach of physical perfection would be through exercising and then
through proper nutrition.
- Carbohydrates and protein are ideal about an
hour before your workout. A protein shake with some fruit in it would
accomplish this. Once your workout is over, take some more protein, by doing this
it will help you begin the repairing process for your muscles. Remember that
liquid protein that you tossed in your gym bag earlier… why not give that a go
for after your workout?
- Be sure to consume quality nutrition throughout
the day. That would include fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, natural
fats and about 0.8 grams of protein for every pound you weigh. Try to eat small
meals every three hours to help your body recover for your next workout.
One last thing to remember
is if you have a consistent workout program coupled with the right
supplementation program, the correct mix of nutrients, you are on the sure shot pathway to success. You ROCK!!
