Supplements have been around for ages. With their sheer size it gives the consumer the impression that it can make you big. On the other hand, supplements are really nothing but providers of what we lack. You think you need calcium? Take calcium supplements. Need to burn more fat? Take fat burners. But really, the only thing I would really recommend is the intake of protein supplements as I believe we always lack this compound on a daily basis. Our muscles are made of protein that breakdown whenever we exercise. So naturally, our body will want some protein to repair itself. This is where we either eat a full meal with a lot of protein after a workout or ingest a protein supplement drink immediately after training. Pros of having a protein supplement after training is its liquid form which is easily absorbed by the body and its convenience. Cons of a protein supplement would be the taste as it doesn’t appeal to everyone. Pros of having a full meal after a workout is its satiety and variety. Cons is the amount of fat and carbs that may come with it. Bottom line is to fill your protein requirement for the day as this determines the amount of fat burning ability you have.
