Supplements and Sports

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be at the absolute top of your game?

Have you thought about what the commitment might be?
Have you considered what dietary changes you’d need to make?

It doesn’t matter what your preferred sports activity might be there is always room for improvement. Many amateur athletes turn to diet and nutrition to improve their performance.

While diet and nutrition are indisputably the backbone of any training program, the problem is getting the sufficient nutrition from diet alone. This is especially true today considering all the overly processed foods that currently line our supermarket shelves.

No matter how diligent you are at reading labels, buying the freshest fruits and vegetables and selecting the leanest cuts of meat and fish it’s impossible to get all the benefit you require for a rigorous sports training regimen.

That’s where supplements come in and we can help! Supplements and Sports is just what you need to dissect all the hype surrounding the pros and cons of supplements for active players no matter what your sport may be.

If you are a fairly new athlete the Introduction to Sports Fitness will be of particular interest where we discuss carbs, protein, water, electrolytes and workout routines in “general” terms.
We explain how, in the long run, insufficient protein in the body can lead to training intolerance and lean muscle wasting and explain how to prevent this and promote protein balance.

Learn how supplement can vary depending on your sports activity. Body builders require a different supplemental routine than say, tri-athletes.

We also discuss:

Ø Protein Bars
Ø Low Carb Protein Shakes
Ø Protein Powder and Weight Gaining Powder
Ø Ephedra Free Fat Loss
Ø Amino Acids
Ø Creatine
Ø Egg Protein
Ø Fat Burners

And yes, we do cover the all important food and nutrition in general terms and the importance of eating as healthy as one can with the foods available to us.

Discover why sports nutritionists and exercise physiologists recommend a well-planned nutrient dense isoenergetic diet and what that consists of.

If your goal is to gain muscle, you need to be aware that it isn’t as easy as it seems. There’s a fine line between gaining muscle and gaining fat. We’ll show you how to stay on track and insure that it’s muscle you are adding and not fat.

You’ll learn the difference between chemical and natural fat burning. Most serious athletes prefer natural fat burners and we’ll explain which are best for meeting your goals.

Did you know that your body actually needs more than 40 different nutrients in order to be healthy? So far, there is no single food that can supply all those nutrients let alone help you to become top of your game.

That’s where that food pyramid comes from that we learned in school along with the basic food groups. The only way you can possibly even begin to approach what the natural consumption of those nutrients should be is through supplements.

We can’t promise you that using supplements will automatically create a leaner, meaner you overnight . But, we can tell you that with work, effort and dedication you can sculpt the body you desire to go along with your sport of preference.
