We seek diets, healthy foods and supplements, however these products still generate doubts and contradictions, let’s unveil some.
Those who train or began to train have already heard certain explanations and tips of these two elements: food and supplementation. We will explain the importance of the two and why the supplement fell into the taste of the people. I will not give diet tips, I will leave it to a qualified professional. I want to show the importance of food for your life and performance in training and sport. Food is the process by which organisms obtain and assimilate food or nutrients for vital functions. So eating is important and essential. However there are several eating disorders that place food as an enemy, one of these disorders is the infamous anorexia, in which the individual stops eating in a radical way, another example is the OCD, where the individual eats compulsively.
Lately the number of people with eating disorders has increased, this is due to a stressed society, which imposes a pattern of beauty where the body must be perfect, but at the same time that same society bombards us with junk foods and industrialized foods and supplements that are not what you really need.
The importance ofsupplements for you
For those who are starting to train and for those who are already active for a while, there are some tips:
- You should not train without feeding. This will not help you lose weight, as well as consume protein as a source of energy, consequently losing muscle, you will perform poorly and you may go wrong.
- Yes it is possible to gain muscle, to lose weight, to develop only with food, without resorting to supplements and etc.
- Your food will depend on your routine, with the body and purpose of each. Beware of miracle diets from the internet or use the friend’s diet just because it worked with it.
- The professional qualified to prescribe diets, is the nutritionist. If you are very physically active or are an athlete, you can seek out a sports nutritionist.
The supplement supplies missing substances or increases the amount of some substances in your body, where it would be impracticable to obtain only with food. This way the body will have nutrients needed for better recovery, performance or evolution. Supplement has nothing to do with anabolic substances.
There are several types of products on the market, each with a different function. Substances like vitamins, amino acids and carbohydrates will have different effects on your body, so it is not any supplement that you can ingest, your workout and the sport you are in will regulate your supplementation. Be careful with directions when buying supplements.
Who can use supplements?
Supplements were initially designed to boost athletes’ performance, where eating is not enough to cover all energy expenditures with workouts and competitions. But each sport requires different forms of the body, thus requiring different substances, a guy who runs a marathon will need a lot more carbohydrates compared to a weightlifter for example, so the basis of his supplementation has to be carbohydrate. In the days of stress and running we end up being a long time without eating or eating industrialized foods and that almost always will not supply our needs of vitamins and proteins for example. This way the supplements can help you to have an evolution and a better performance in your workouts.
