How many diet fads have you chased, hoping that by throwing your heart and soul into the newest guru-sponsored diet, fitness regimen, or miracle pill, you could achieve the healthy lifestyle you’ve always desired? Isn’t it time to start wondering what’s wrong with all these crazes that never seem to work as well as all the hype claims?
The secret is that there’s nothing wrong with any of these fads in themselves. The mistake is believing that any of them can lead you to the health you desire without being balanced by other strategies. For example, copious aerobic exercise does very little for those who don’t also commit themselves to a consistent, healthy diet. In the same vein, strength training is quite ineffective for those who don’t complement their workouts with whole foods and the proper muscle supplements.
So why are whole foods and muscle supplements so often left unmentioned by fitness and health gurus? Simply put, because they don’t fall under the category of “get-fit-quick” strategies! Muscle supplements are not “miracle pills” that do the work for you, and likewise, healthy eating is not something that you can do for one day and expect results. Nevertheless, both a balanced regimen of proper, high-quality muscle supplements and proper eating is essential to the success of any fitness program, whether you’re training for the Ironman Triathalon or just looking to lose a couple of pounds.
Eating plenty of energy-and-nutrient-rich foods such as greens, complex proteins, complete carbohydrates (quinoa, spelt, etc.), and complex lipids (avocados, etc.) provides your body with the fuel it needs to carry out the processes required for body and metabolism transformation. Adding muscle supplements to the equation helps ensure that your training regimen is sustainable, i.e. by speeding up muscle repair, providing more energy, and augmenting the natural processes that whole foods set into action.
Put this plan into action today! Everyone can benefit from the perfect balance of strength training with muscle supplements, eating healthily, and staying active each and every day!
