There are so many diets out there... Vegan, Vegetarian, Paleo, Low Carb, No Carb, Mediterranean, South Beach, Atkins, Ketogenic... Where does it all end? Does it even make a difference?
One of the most interesting things about trying to know what diet is right for you is that we all know someone who has had success on any one of the diets mentioned above.
Chances are you've met a Vegan who is in great shape. And chances are you've met a Vegan who is in NOT so great shape...
You've probably also met someone who LOVES Paleo... But you try it and you feel awful! What the heck?
So why does one diet work for one person but when you try it it doesn't work for you!
In this post I want to cut through all of the BS on why one particular diet is neither good nor bad and why all of this fighting and bickering over Paleo, not paleo, ketogenic, low carb, IIFYM dogma (yes, dogma... some people are more dedicated to their diet than their God... lol) is crazy and that it's really not all that different.
Pre-workout supplements are some of the most popular supplements out in the industry right now. Ranging from everything from Cellucor's C4 to BPI's One More Rep (1MR) these supplements are supposed to help kick start your workouts and help you get more out of each workout by helping you push further.
But with all of the added ingredients that are sometimes put in these pre-workout supplements to either make them more effective or make you think they are more effective, sometimes they can do more harm than good.
In this post I wanted to share with you the dangers of taking a pre-workout supplement and then I'll also give you my recommendations for my favorite pre-workouts, when you should use them in your training, and my favorite whole food options as well.
