Supplements support your hard work in and out of the gym. While no supplement will work if you don’t, they can certainly bolster your health and fitness efforts. Here are my top eight supplements for living healthy & lean.
I am very busy and am always looking for healthy, but nutritious, on-the-go snacks. Between meetings and writing and editing all day long, I need a snack that I can grab quickly in the morning and have available when I have a second to enjoy it.
What if there was a product that could both alleviate pain and increase firmness/fullness— one that didn’t require you to choose between your breasts and a better overall body fat level?
Most women who take their workouts seriously and want to build muscle have heard of or tried the almighty creatine! Of all the supplements on the market today, creatine is by far the most researched and clinically validated. In fact, it has 100’s of studies that back its efficacy.
Finding a protein bar to fit your nutritional standards is really difficult. How many times have you searched the protein bar section only to walk away disappointed? Too much sugar…excessive sugar alcohols…not enough protein…too many mystery ingredients…way too many calories.
Protein shakes are one of the simplest, healthiest, tastiest and most effective ways to get all the proper nutrients you need on a daily basis. Now, I am not talking about creating one of those high-sugar calorie bombs that you might find at a local smoothie store or at the gym café. Rather, you need the right base of ingredients that serve your body well and taste great without destroying your diet.
There are two popular timeframes when people take supplements— before and after their workout. And although getting in your proper nutrients both pre- and post-workout is critical, there is also another time when you can take nutrients that can help accelerate your workout and your results.
Most people wish there was a magic pill when it comes to burning fat. A magic pill that would somehow miraculously burn off fat without having to do anything! Unfortunately it is just not that simple, if it was, none of us would be fat!
I’m writing about protein because I receive many e-mails asking about my diet; people wonder if I only eat protein, if I eat just fish, how much protein to include in the daily diet, etc.
As a weight-loss supplement, chromium picolinate can help build muscle and burn fat, according to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. In addition, chromium may also help to treat high cholesterol and high triglycerides.
