Dietary Supplementation – the key to energy and slimness.

Most people come to a personal trainer because they want to look good naked.  Hopefully, this is a long term goal.  In fact, what we can desire is to not only look fabulous, but we can also feel fabulous long term.  But to achieve this goal, we have to get our horse and cart in the right order.  Most people assume that eating less and doing more will get them there.  In the very short term, it will.  But this is like getting the horse to push the cart.  A biddable horse might do this for a little way – but progress is slow and stops soon.  Get the horse attached to the front of the cart, and off we can trot.  If we are going to get the eating under control and exercise more, we have to feel like doing this.  That means we feel positive, we have energy, we have our cravings under control, we do not feel the desire to collapse on the sofa, sort out the sock drawer or yell at the family.  To achieve this requires high quality supplementation.  When we have the strong will to live and enjoy life, eating well and exercising come naturally.  Then owning a fabulous body comes with the package.  Body’s are meant to be fabulous.

The human body is a fantastic machine. It functions best in prime condition. However, when imbalances happen through illness, lack of nutrition or stress, the body tries to indicate that all is not right. The body creates symptoms. These symptoms are usually minor and can be easily ignored.

Typical Symptoms

  • Tired all the time
  • Getting old before our time.
  • Lack of motivation
  • Poor Sleep
  • Low / lowering of sex drive
  • Poor digestion / bloating
  • Poor poo
  • Frequent colds (and slow recovery)
  • Easily upset
  • Depression
  • No joy in life
  • Fussy Eating (all ages, including children)
  • Feeling old
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Hot flushes
  • Forgetfulness / Brain fog
  • Increasing food intolerances
  • Hay fever
  • Asthma
  • Skin rashes / eczema
  • Bitten by insects more than others
  • Weak nails
  • Weight gain
  • Weight loss
  • Cravings
  • Dislike of red meat

Ignoring minor symptoms leads to far greater problems and an increase in the ageing process. Often we suppress symptoms with pharmaceuticals, pain killers, skin creams, anti-depressants, sleeping pills etc, or they are accepted as a part of ‘getting old’.

Most people who suffer do not realise that the causes may be rectified by simply modifying and supplementing their diet and lifestyle.  By addressing symptoms, we turn back time.  We reverse the biological clock.

Not all dietary supplements work.  Most are manufactured with the prime eye on cost at the expense of effectiveness.  So whilst the claims made on the packets are theoretically true, the supplement has to manufactured with the right synergistic ingredients and taken in the right dose to really work.  The Poliquin supplements I specialise in most emphatically work.  Charles Poliquin has devised them for top athletes.  For the normal person, this seems rather irrelevant.  However, if you are trying to get an athlete already at the top of their game to make that tiny increase in performance that gets them a Gold, then you have to know what you are doing.  Half hearted supplementation simply will not do.  And so we all benefit.  For example, if we don’t sleep well, we can turn to the doctor for sleeping pills that sort of work, but leave us groggy.  Or we can turn to Ubermag, a magnificent mix of magnesiums that deepen natural sleep – and give many other benefits of increased magnesium levels such as weight loss, improved heart health and increased energy.

The highest quality dietary supplementation recognises and addresses many of the minor symptoms caused by a combination of stress, a diet of processed or prepared food, poor eating habits and a lack of appropriate exercise and quality sleep. Perhaps best of all, it counteracts weight gain and ageing.  How fabulous is that?
