Simple Tips For Weight Loss After Quarrantine

The gyms are back open and it is time to fully get back on track.  Many people had a hard time staying on track with nutrition during the lockdown.  It is common to snack more on unhealthy foods or overeat when you feel out of rhythm.  Let us put that in the past and focus on life getting back on track.   Track your calories and make note of you felt before and after eating.

What Supplements to Start With?

What Supplements to Start With?

    You have set the habit of going to the gym, made positive changes to your eating habits, and are  ready to crank up the workout intensity. “What supplements should I take?” and “Do I need supplements?” are very common questions.   The supplement industry has dramatically grown over the last decade by expanding supplement categories. This growth has made it easier to find products directly related to your individual goals.  Categories range from pre-workout,  intra workout, post workout, protein, mass gainer, vitamins, fat burners, and joint support just to name a few.   Remember, the purpose of  sports nutrition supplements is to work in conjunction with your healthy eating lifestyle.  Sports nutrition supplements without healthy eating will not produce drastic results.  On the other side of coin, many goals and results are possible without sports nutrition supplements but they do make life more convenient and the process more effective.   Since you are still in the early stages of your fitness journey, I recommend starting with a protein supplement.   The purpose of protein is to help the muscle…
