My nutritional approach can be simplified into the following 3 words:
And the supplements I take are designed around optimizing these 3 things. Produce, or fruits and veggies, provides most of your micronutrients (essential vitamins & minerals) that are critical to overall health, performance, and body composition.
If you have trouble getting in enough produce then I'd highly recommend adding ATHLETIC GREENS to your arsenal. It's the best-in-class greens powder on the market... and yes, it's also the most expensive because it's jam-packed with 75 nutrient-dense ingredients. AG delivers:
- 11 supplements in a single, delicious scoop of superfood nutrition
- Improved alkalinity, digestive health, & immune support
- The antioxidant equivalent of 12 servings of veggies
I eat a ton of veggies but I still take 2 servings/day of AG - one immediately upon waking and one pre-workout) to cover my nutritional bases since I have a high activity level and foods today don't have the same nutritional load/serving they used to.
It's particularly important during busy and stressful times or when I'm traveling so I don't get sick. I'll be drinking the travel packets as I move across the country later this week.
I recommend starting with the "Trial Pack" to see how you like it and how your body responds.
