Is Supplementation Are Useful.

Supplements , vitamins
Now I’m no different then the next guy… I LOVE my supplements🙌🏼.⠀

Pre workouts, protein powders, even greens powders & multi vitamins. ⠀

These things taste good, can have an effect on performance in the gym, and are so convenient when your in a pinch or struggling to get a certain macro/micro nutrient in.⠀

But are they really the 🔑 to achieving your health & fitness goal?⠀

NOPE! Not even a little bit.⠀

Supplements are simply made to SUPPLEMENT the diet. Fill the gaps were you might be lacking.⠀

Are you lacking in 🥦’s? Let’s take a greens mix.⠀

Are no not able to eat enough 🐠? Awesome let’s take a fish oil.⠀

Are you struggling to mix your protein goal? No biggy let’s add in a protein powder.⠀

Maybe it’s been a long day and your struggling to find the energy to workout😴. Okay a pre workout might come in handy today.⠀

This is how supplements need to be utilized, on an “as needed” based.⠀

But if your able to get in plenty of veggies, hit your protein goal, and have fish in your diet regularly, NONE of these supplements are necessary.⠀

Before you go out and spend hundreds of dollars on a huge supplement stack let’s exhaust all our variables on the nutrition, sleep, and stress management side.⠀

Once all those are in check them can we start talking about what supplements will be best for you.⠀

What Can You Gain from Fat Burner?

A lot of people head into supplement stores every day searching for that magic pill. The magic fat burner that is gonna drop 10-15 pound of them in the first month. ⠀

But is this really possible? And if not, then what is the benefit from actually taking a fat burner?⠀

The amount of fat your actually gonna burn from taking a fat burner is pretty mine-squeal. We’re talking splitting hairs.⠀

The best a fat burner will do is raise your heart rate and core body temperature due to the caffeine or other stimulates in it. Only making it feel like somethings actually working.⠀

Simply adjustments to your diet, cardio, and weight training sessions will yelled you just as much if not more results then taking the fat burner by its self.⠀

So why do you hear all the time that these fat burners helped people loose weight?⠀

Most likely the fat burner simply helped these people get on on solid regimen.⠀

Spending $60-$120 on a fat burner simply motivated them to change there diet and get into the gym so they wouldn’t feel like they wasted there money.⠀

They simply needed a reason or motivating factor to actually make the lifestyle changes necessary.⠀

The fat burner did not magically make them lose weight. Magic pills DO NOT exist.⠀

You wanna know what’s also motivating and not a waste of money but will still get you long lasting results??⠀

HAVING A COACH!!⠀

Hiring a coach is a great way to get solid advice, knowledge, and accountability to help you reach your goal.⠀

the results you’ll see with a coach will be drastically better and you’ll be able to continue seeing results MUCH MUCH longer then if you deciding to buy a 2 month supply of fat burners.⠀

Cardio Is Killing Your Fat Loss.

Cardio , fatloss
What’s the ideal way to lose fat?? ⠀

Definitely cardio right??🤔⠀

❗️WRONG❗️⠀

I get this ALLLLLL the time… “I’m only doing cardio right now because I’m trying to lose weight. Then I’ll build muscle after.”⠀

Most likely all this is doing is slowing your fat loss down!!⠀

Steady state cardio for long periods of time only sends a signal to the body to become more efficient with calories. (Aka slow metabolism down)⠀

A slower metabolism = slower fat loss.⠀

Yes cardio can be good for overall heart health but it is not ideal for fat loss.⠀

So what is??🤔⠀

❗️LIFTING WEIGHTS❗️⠀

Building muscle is the best things you can do if your trying to lose fat.⠀

Having more muscle increasing metabolism. ⠀

Not to mention you’ll be able to hold more body fat and look leaner because of the amount of muscle you have. ⠀

Building more muscle = faster fat loss. Period.⠀

Proper weight training mixed with proper macronutrient manipulation is the key to effortless/“quick” weight loss.⠀

Down the road once you have exhausted all the variables that have to do with weight training and nutrition then you can add in some cardio and give yourself an extra boost to get you to your goal.⠀

But don’t be the person that only does cardio expecting to get to your goal in time. ⠀

Adaptation to cardio happens quick. ⠀

And it’s a lot longer, slower process then if you just focused on lifting weights!

Exercise & The Menstrual Cycle!

Exercise & The Menstrual Cycle!
Read & TAG A FRIEND👭

It is very common for females who train intensely and diet to lose their period or have it become irregular. Every month ovulation occurs and with this, hormonal changes arise. Having a very strict diet especially missing meals or working out for multiple hours in the day leads your body to identify this negative energy balance as a risk. When this happens, the body turns off the body process known as reproduction.
⠀⠀
A hormone known as leptin gets produced when there is body fat. Not having enough body fat decreases the amount of leptin in the body, which reduces the action of the hypothalamus (which starts off your menstrual cycle). Stress is also a major factor that may lead our sympathetic nervous system (SNS) to be overworked. When our stress hormones are constantly at high levels, our body believes it’s not safe to reproduce.
⠀⠀
Losing your period means that something must be “off” hormonally. Here are some tips as to what you can do:
-Reduce the amount of exercise that you’re doing and increase your calories
-Ensure you’re getting in enough good quality sleep
-Try adding in slow-digesting carbs at most meals (everyone is different but this may be helpful to reduce stress and deprivation in our bodies as most females believe that carbs are “bad” for them).
-See your doctor to tune in to the exact cause.” )
