As a Personal Trainer and Weight Loss Coach I get asked all the time, what supplements will help me lose weight or gain muscle. This is actually really tricky, since most of the supplements on the market are bogus and pretty much worthless. Since most supplements are pretty much bogus let us discuss a few that are actually beneficial. The first to discuss is a protein supplement. First of all, the reason to take a protein supplement is twofold, one to get added protein into your system, and the second it can be used as a meal replacement. So why is protein beneficial?
We live in a busy world and time is of utmost importance. Most of the time, you find out that people complain that they work too much, so they never have time to eat right. All I hear are excuses. Whether you work in a cubicle, at a factory, in a car, on an airplane, etc if there is a will, there is a way… to have a healthy work environment!
The use of supplements is controversial in nature. The reason that the supplement business is a billion dollar industry is due to our own human nature. We did not get fat or out of shape overnight but want to gain fitness and six pack abs overnight. What you first have to realize is that most supplements do not work and the companies are selling you a dream.
