The Role Of Bodybuilding Supplements

First, supplements make sticking to the proper diet easier to follow. Meal replacements and protein supplements fall into this category. They're fast, economical and convenient. You can use them to add extra calories and protein to your diet for mass gains or use them in place of more fattening foods during a cutting diet.

Second, supplements can help you reach your goal faster and more effectively. Fat burners fall into this category. They can speed up your metabolism, give you an energy boost, and curb your appetite. Other sport supplements may help prevent catabolism (muscle wasting) during strict diets. Prohormones and products like Methoxy-7 can be a great help in this area.

Third, supplements can keep you healthy while achieving that ideal body. Extreme fat loss or muscle gain diets aren't always synonymous with health. Supplementing your diet with fiber, fish oils, multi-vitamins, minerals and extra antioxidants can not only help you look good, but also help you stay looking good for years to come.

Good post. I think alot of people forget that supplements are there to 'supplement' a healthy diet and lifestyle. They help you reach your goals faster and easier than without them, but do not do it for you.

Supplements are just that. Just tweaks, not magic pills/powder. As long as you have a solid workout routine, good diet, and get the proper rest you will do well. But that said, I'm hearing good things about OxyElite Pro. This can help you well in weight loss. Get a good lean 100% whey protein or an isolate, some good vitamins and this is a good base to start with.

Welcome to the site and let us know if we can help with anything!

Thanks Rick will check that out. Trying to research different things. Don't want to jump with something and cause problems. Tried creatine in the past, had some problems with kindneys on that. Was not a fun time.

Supplements have played a very important role in my bbing career and also in my transformation process. Mac is 100% on point with his post, hard work is the base. You must have a solid foundation before you stack supps on it. Otherwise, your wasting your money and time.

It's like my mom used to tell me, "Don't spray cologne on top of stank!" Sometimes that word stank was another word that starts with s and rhymes with it. lol.
