We have talked about supplement more than once in previous blog posts at Momentum Training. We often get asked “should I be taking supplements if I want to …. <insert look good naked goal here>.”  Before answering this question please be aware that the following post is only my opinion based on my experience and research, you can choose to take it or leave it.  I am not a “qualified nutritionist” and I don’t pretend to be.

probioticsThere is no such thing as a free lunch, and just by taking supplement you can never balance out a bad diet, your nutrition is important as so is the balance between exercise and sleep.  Supplements can help, but they are never a bandaid to a crappy diet, poor sleeping habits and limited physical activity.   I’ve spent years learning about health, fitness and nutrition by listening to experts in the field, study, asking questions, reading and researching to build my own opinions. There are many conflicting opinions in the nutrition industry and you need to find what works for you. I like to practice what I preach and I never take one persons word as fact.  Do the research, and everything you hear is bullshit until you can prove otherwise…. including this blog post!

I have been very fortunate to have trained with some amazing coaches and been lucky enough to have had some fantastic mentors. I’ve attended countless workshops and seminars, trained with some incredible coaches, built partnerships with blood labs, holistic nutritionists and holistic doctors.  Each of them have their own professional experience and advice to offer.
