Supplements are very popular and being promoted all over the place.

The problem is: You might not understand the benefits and reasoning for adding them to your diet.

In today’s video I’ll share with you 2 questions you should be asking yourself before adding any supps to your diet, and the top 6 supplement types I recommend and what each one of them can help you with.

First, ask yourself these questions:

1) Do I have a need for it?

Is there something your diet is lacking?

Are you struggling to eat enough of certain food types?

Are you having a hard time recovering from workouts?

Are you getting sick often?

Are your joints hurting?

These are the types of questions that will help you decide if a supplemental addition to your diet is necessary.

If you are not currently taking supplements but you’re enjoying your results and all is well then there might not be any need for you to spend the extra money and time including supps into your diet.

The worst reason to add a supplement to your diet is “because somebody told me to” or just because you got a discount code.

You need to do your research, decide if the supplement is going to help you reach your goals, and feel really comfortable with the decision to add it to your diet.

If you don’t feel comfortable with it or don’t have a need for it, then don’t take it.

2) Will there be a clear benefit from it without high risk?

We all know that steroids will get you stronger and bigger, but the risks to your health are just way too high to make it worth taking.

Any supplement you add to your diet should be one that gives you a benefit without any terrible side effects.

Do some research, make sure it’s safe, even consult your doctor if you are not sure.

Educate yourself on what a safe dose is for your body.

Follow the manufacturers instructions and don’t take more than the recommended dose.

If a supplement makes you feel bad then stop taking it.

Here are my top 6 recommendations when shopping supplements to Live Lean:

There are so many supplements on the market. It would be overwhelming to try to add them all at once.

To get you started, here at the top six supplements that are safest and most commonly used among athletes who train Live Lean style:

  1. Protein Supplement (types include whey, egg, plant protein, etc..). Increase your daily protein consumption.
  2. MultiVitamin. To cover all the nutrient bases especially if you struggle to eat enough variety of vegetables.
  3. Preworkout. If you struggle to get to the gym and get motivated and focused during workouts.
  4. BCAA’s (branched chain amino acids). If you struggle to eat enough protein, to recover from workouts, and/or to maintain hard earned muscle.
  5. Creatine. For performance and strength enhancement. If you struggle to make gains & get stronger during your workouts.
  6. Omega 3. (like fish oil) If you feel stiff, immobile, or have joint pain.

I hope this lesson helped provide you a basic education on what different supplements do and why you might consider taking them.

Remember that supplements are only supplemental to your diet that should be full of real, healthy, nutritious food.
