The truth is that it is incredible how even in the face of scientific bases, many people continue to believe in fables, and the truth is that sometimes it is very sad to see how countless people believe more in magical products that “make losing weight easy” or “gain muscle fast” than carrying a proper diet and a well-structured training plan, so in this article we will talk to you with the truth, it is much better that each person has clear objectives and how to achieve them methodically, than to increase the number of people who live deceived by large companies when buying supplements.
11 Things You Should Know When Buying Supplements
1.-You do not need to spend a fortune with supplements.
To start we can tell you that you do not need to spend all your money on supplements to obtain the results you have considered, What you should do is take a correct diet and a good training plan.
2.- Supplements do nothing on their own
Protein, fat burning, or whatever you plan to buy in order to achieve your goals, will actually have little or no effect on your body if you don’t train and eat properly.
3.- Supplements are an extra or a plus.
We must bear in mind that these products are only an additional to our diet since as their name says they supplement or complement it.
4.- Large companies only care about selling
for all the large supplement companies the only thing that matters is to sell, and for this they apply sales strategies where in their commercials or cover of their products they use models with incredible bodies, which have the image they are looking for, in order to make you believe that if you consume that product you could have that physique, and here come into play 2 factors that companies do not tell you when buying supplements.
- That incredible body that this model has is due to an extremely strict diet and a very well structured training routine, finally in some cases they use anabolic substances (drugs).
- These companies pay considerable amounts of money to these models to promote their brands, not because they consume the product.
5.- Compare nutritional values
Before buying supplements compare the nutritional values that these bring you with food, and consider if it is really necessary to buy them, Taking as an example the well-known “whey protein”, we can recommend that instead of spending much of your money on it, invest in foods such as red meat, chicken breast, eggs, fish, pork, among others.
On the other hand the only supplement that we can recommend is creatine, since the same compared to the nutritional value of the food, is much more comfortable and easy to consume in a small scoop.
6.- Consult with your favorite nutritionist.
The best thing you can do is to consult with a nutritionist, since they are the specialists in the field, they can give you an adequate food plan according to your objectives and a supplementation if necessary.
Keep these recommendations in mind before buying the supplement you think you need, in this way you may save a lot of money and you can invest it in food, which will give your body excellent results.
