Are you following the latest fad? Made wildly popular on Instagram with top fitness models and trainers such as Paige Hathaway and Kayla Itsines, both with well over 1 million followers, fitness is moving more away from being your mother’s Jane Fonda, leg warmer, step up workout to bright workout clothes, skinny running leggings and colorful shoes. Are you following the latest and best trend? Fitness. I’ve been told that losing weight and gaining muscle is a balance between working out and “eating clean,” weight loss is 80% diet, 20% working out? Well it’s true! If you are working out every day but your diet isn’t nourishing your body and replenishing your muscles then you may not be losing any weight. Find balance! Do you supplement by taking vitamins, fish oil, protein powders? Gym memberships, eating clean and supplementing can get pricey, but it doesn’t have to be!
According to fitness model/professional Paige Hathaway, she recommends the following supplements:
BCAA – Branch Chain Amino Acids
It comes in both powder and pill form, 1 scoop in the AM and 1 scoop during workout.
She also suggests a good multi vitamin, 1 AM, 1 PM.
CLA 800 mg AM, 800 mg PM
Vitamin D 1000 IU each day
Omega 3 2 grams AM, 2 grams PM
and 200 mg Magnesium before bed.
*** Confirm with your physician before you take any supplements***
