When should you use supplements?
That's a great question and I'm so glad you asked!!
Well...I guess you didn't ask, but I'm going to let you know!
Supplements should be used when you can eat whole food/meal.
As life gets busy we have times when we just can't eat a full meal and that's when we would want to put in some supplements into our diet.
Most of the time this would be a protein shake or protein bar.
Just to state this it is ALWAYS best to get a real meal in instead of taking supplements, but again, life gets busy and we can't always do what is ideal and this is when we would add a supplement to our diet!
Now you're probably wondering why you can't just wait until you eat again and that's another great question!!!
The reason for that is because of what I mentioned about anabolic and catabolic windows in a previous blog post so if you need to know more about that go here.
