Simplify your training and nutrition

so you can get results and enjoy your life, too. 

The Best Nutrition Supplements

Everyone wants results and they want them fast. The quick fix many people feed into, are relying on diet fads and supplements, without looking at the whole picture.

Let’s look at the whole picture before wasting your money and causing yourself more frustration, to get the results you want using nutrition supplements.

 

WHAT NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS DO

When pertaining to how to lose body fat, gaining overall transformation you can see and feel, gaining muscle, improving your physique, recovering better and faster, increasing energy, and performing your best; nutrition supplements enhance what you are already doing.

They are only one aspect of the whole picture.

Yes, they can help you with your goals and part of your health and fitness, but don’t just take all sorts of supplements without actually changing lifestyle and expect results.

When used correctly, they can help you:

  • lose body fat
  • get shredded
  • increase energy
  • increase cognitive function
  • increase performance
  • increase recovery
  • gain muscle
  • transform entire body
  • gain strength
  • see and feel changes
  • increase confidence
  • increase joint health
  • increase overall wellness

NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS WITH HEALTHY DIET AND EXERCISE

When you include nutrition supplements with a healthy diet and exercise regime, you’ll get the results you were wanting.  Whether you want to pack on some muscle mass or lose body fat, lifestyle changes need to come with it.  If not, it’s just a waste.

When I was an inexperienced teenager, I was so determined I would never allow myself to get fat, that I took fat burners and either deprived myself of food or did some ridiculous fad diet.  I wasn’t even working out other than going for a jog every once in a while, or whatever sports I was playing at the time.

Extremely unhealthy, right?

But it’s where I started and we all start somewhere.

I was ranked one of the fastest hurdlers in the state of Ohio and had no idea what I was doing.  If only I had the knowledge I have now, to apply to when I was in high school and college, to see the kind of performance and health that would have come out of that.  I could have better and faster technique.  I could have eaten to be stronger and faster, instead of running on an empty tank.

But I didn’t, and grew from it. I didn’t get to see my full potential as a sprinter and a hurdler. But my pain and regret can help you simply understand the basics and how to enhance it with supplements and seeing the whole picture, too.

PERFORM AND RECOVER BETTER WITH NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS

Don’t run on an empty tank or chase fad diets.  Don’t count on supplements alone to get you to where you want to be but they should be one aspect of you getting to your goals.

You can perform better, think clearly, recover better, feel stronger, train better, lose body fat, gain muscle, get healthier joints, and the lean physique you want.

It’s not just aesthetic purposes either.  Yes, everyone wants to feel good and look good. But beyond that, it takes overall wellness, strength, and confidence as part of that.

 

NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS WITH LIFESTYLE CHANGE

If you are like me and don’t want to live in the gym and obsess over it, you can get the maximum results in only three hours a week when focusing on the larger muscle groups.

EXERCISE:  With only three hours a week, you get stronger, leaner, and more confident, without missing out on the more important things in life. I’ve used this method from coming back from an emergency c-section to being named in the top 20 physiques on bodybuilding.com.

So yes, you will get the best results from lifting weights.  Not saying that you absolutely have to lift weights because there are many things you can do, but that’s where you will get the best results.

DON’T FORGET TO ENJOY IT:  If you enjoy running, then run.  If you enjoy Zumba, then move those hips. If you enjoy spin class, then do it!  If you want to avoid the gym, here are ways to do home workouts instead.  But just to let you know,  lifting weights is where the magic is.  Nothing can replace the feeling of loading and unloading plates and free weights.

FOOD AND FUEL:  Combine lifting and doing activities you enjoy with improving nutrition, and nutrition supplements specific for your goal, then you will have one heck of a before and after picture.

Here’s mine when I wasn’t even counting macros or calories, but using my hand to portion out food below.

NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS FOR YOUR PERSONAL GOALS

Which supplements to use will depend on your goal.  I personally and professionally trust Granite Supplements. I religiously drink their Essential Aminos while I am training, use their Joint Care for healthier joints, and use more depending on my goals. (Discount code is below.)

Lately I’ve been adding their Vasoblast to the mix of favorite supplements and drink it 30 minutes before training.  I love the feeling of a good pump and that’s exactly what it does. It’s a stimulant free pre-workout that opens up your vascular system to fuel your muscles. A key to transformation is fueling your body and muscle, not starving it.  The Vasoblast opens up blood vessels to feed your muscles.

If you want to lose fat, then eat less calories than what you burn.  If you want to stay the same, then eat the same.  If you want to gain muscle or weight, then eat more than what you burn. Simple starting point.

NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS FOR FAT LOSS

Calorie deficit, weight training, and weight management supplements are ideal.  The easiest way to calculate a calorie deficit to lose body fat is opening a free account with myfitnesspal.com.  I describe that more here.

  • Essential Aminos while training large muscle groups
  • 1-2 protein shakes per day as a snack with a thumb size of a fat with each shake (nut butter, nuts, extra virgin olive oil, MCT oil, fish oil)
  • ThermoBurn Fat Burner.
  • Pre-Workout
  • FUEL your body.  Each meal focused around protein.

 

NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS FOR MUSCLE GAIN

Eat more than what your burn, plus drinking carbs while you train.  Remember how I said the VasoBlast opens up the blood vessels to feed and fuel the muscles while you are training? When those vessels are open, it’s prime time to FUEL your muscles with carbs.

  • Intra-Carb plus Recovery while training large muscle groups
  • Protein Shakes with thumb size of fat as snacks
  • Pre-Workout so you can train harder and have explosive energy.

 

NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS FOR PERFORMANCE

  • Intra-Carb plus Recovery while training large muscle groups
  • Protein Shakes with thumb size of fat as snacks
  • Pre-Workout so you can train harder and have explosive energy.
  • Joint Care Supplement to make sure you are taking care of those joints!

NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS FOR OVERALL WELLNESS

I personally get regular blood work done with my Functional Medicine Doctor to look at deeper levels.  I am a big believer in not only nutrition supplements for performance and recovery, but also for overall wellness.  Therefore, I use a high quality fish oil, probiotics, multi-vitamin, and anything else my doctor recommends. I also use Muscle Synthesis because from severe pregnancies, I struggle to eat the amount of protein recommended to have a lean physique, which was also recommended and made by my doctor.   I want to function optimally, and that’s why I work with physicians that understand this.

Know your food sensitivities which you can talk to your doctor, try elimination diets, or do what I did and just get blood work and work with a Functional Medicine Doctor. I miss the delicious whey and casein protein powders dearly, but due to food allergies and sensitivities, I can only have pea protein. I also can’t have any soy, hemp, or beans to get the protein. Right now I’m using Onnit Pea Protein. It’s thicker than the more delicious whey and casein proteins, but hey, sometimes you have to improvise.
