My view on sports nutrition supplements is very simple: they help improve your diet and ensure you get the nutrients that you may not be able to get from a regular food sources.
Very few of us have enough time and more importantly willpower to ensure that all of the food we consume is 100% healthy and clean. I know many people who are struggling with their daily nutrition for various reasons. The lack of time, lack of knowledge, not enough motivation to cook, being on the road most of the time, etc. These are the only few reasons that can throw your diet off balance. If you think you might be facing some of these challenges then perhaps it is time for you to consider taking some supplements to improve your diet. Keep in mind that healthy nutrition is your number one success factor towards achieving your fitness and health goals.
There are a few supplements that I suggest people take when they start one of the Beachbody health and fitness programs:
- Shakeology – This is by far the best thing you can possibly get
- P90X Peak Health Formula Multivitamins or ActiVit Multivitamins (less expensive option)
- P90X Results and Recovery Formula
- P90X Protein Bars
- Energy & Endurance Pre-Workout Formula
- Whey Protein
