You can end up wasting money and not spending enough time researching your training and nutrition articles, the important stuff! If I HAD to put a percentage on it (which isn’t really ideal as it depends on the person), I would say supplements should make up 10% of your body efforts (effort, time, money, research etc), MAXIMUM. I would personally have it taking up about 5%.
You need to be careful before getting a bodybuilding supplement to see which ones are for you. How do you know which of these supplements are good for you, with thousands of them being for sale? Going in to your local sports nutrition store can be of some help if the workers there tell you which ones are the best. You need to look for the bodybuilding supplements that are of high reviews and well respected amongst users. If you see a athletic shoes supplement with a numerous amount of negative or bad reviews, then steer clear of that one. So before buying a muscle building product, do your research online and in stores to find out which ones are seeing the greatest results.
Fats yield 9 calories per gram. They also help to keep our body warm during cold weather. Fats lubricate joints which in terms, keeps your muscles loose and mobile for better workouts. Fats are also a dwelling spot for fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, and K. These vitamins are stored in our body’s fat and can become toxic if too much is taken.
Be careful when you add oils, butter, or heavy sauces to the pasta though. You should also not top it with too much meat either, especially if this is pre game a experience. Cheese too should be avoided or kept at a minimum especially if it contains lots of fat.
If you are not convinced that water should be number one on your list of things to take in to make progress, take this into account…Without water, all of the creatine, glutamine, and other things are worth nothing. They need water to be effective and so do you!
It depends on the individual’s preference. I will have some Muslim athletes who say ‘I should fast, but I’m going to try to have something light in the middle of the day, because I have a job to do,’ and ‘ others say, ‘absolutely nothing-you know this is my faith and that’s what I’m going to follow.’ Whatever the athlete’s belief system is, it’s my job to wrap around their belief system-not the other way around. Often times they want to maintain the tenets of their faith, and maximize their performance around that. When it comes to a faith based desire you can certainly give people the science, but ultimately they have to choose what makes them feel right and whole.
