Supplements - they can be your best friend or your wallet’s worst enemy.
This post is not about what supplements to use and which ones are useless.
Maybe some other time I will write about them, but if you need some suggestions Google will provide you with about 282,000,000 results in a mere1.46 seconds.
It’s easy to get carried away with supplements though.
Hitting your targets for protein, vitamins & minerals, and fruits & veggies among other things can be tough to do on a daily basis.
For pretty much anything your body needs there is a pill, powder, bar, or liquid form of it.
Just keep in mind that they are called “supplements” and not “replacements.”
Nothing will ever replace good ol’ fashioned whole foods.
In addition to the macro and micro-nutrients we know about, whole foods can contain water, fiber, and other elements we don’t actually understand just yet but our bodies have evolved to thrive on over the past 200,000 years.
Perhaps in another 200,000 years our bodies will have evolved to accept our daily nutrition from pills & powders like in a futuristic sci-fi movie.
But for you reading this now, not today nor any point in your lifetime.
