If you have worked out for any period of time you no doubt have had someone tell you that you need to take CLA to lose fat or you need to be on Creatine to gain muscle. For some reason people seem to think that over the counter supplements are magical and will give you everything you need. Today I want to give you my opinion on supplement usage.
I am currently finishing an ebook called “The Average Guy's Supplement Guide” and I describe many supplements and tell you whether or not they work. Why am I doing this? Because there are so many supplements out there that it gets confusing. One could spend more than they make each month on supplements. The question becomes what is the benefit to spending all that money.
I am obviously not going to give away specifics since those are covered in my new eBook ‘The Average Guy's Supplement Guide”, but I will give you the following pointers.
- Do some research to see who is using a given supplement and how it is working for them. Visit forums where supplements are discussed and ask questions. Pay attention to the results people are getting.
- Just because it is a popular supplement doesn't mean it will work for you. Everyone is different and as such, everyone responds differently to supplements. If you simply must try something out, pay attention to how well it works for you. If you see no difference, discontinue its use.
- Always know what a supplement is supposed to do before you take it.
- Know how long you can stay on a given supplement. Fat burners, for instance, generally stop being effective after 6 weeks. Unless you take a break from them, you will be wasting your money.
I believe that some supplements work and others don't work at all. I also believe that some supplements work, but only for certain people. Take the time to educate yourself on these issues. Come back here and buy a copy of “The Average Guy's Supplement Guide”. I think you will find it extremely useful and it will save you thousands of dollars in the long run.
