My Workout Supplements A Brief Review
About my workout supplements...Workout supplements are important and if you've been involved in fitness for any length of time you know there are a ton of workout supplements and nutritionals available. Sometimes it can all be a bit overwhelming, for me anyway to find the right supplement. But, I take my time read the reviews and do my research before trying anything. Whether it's new supplements, new workout routines or a new piece of equipment.
The information that I share below is in no way intends to sway your decision about workout supplements, but rather to share...
My goal is to simply tell you about the products I use(d), what works and in some cases what didn't work for me. There are several other products, that I may add over time, but for now, the ones listed below are the products still within reach. Take your time, do your own research, and make your own decisions about what's best for you and your body's health and your weight loss goals.
Workout Supplements-Mega T Green Tea PillsI found these online when I did a search for "fat burners". I used to take a supplement called "CarbSmart" or something like that, I bought it from Walgreens. Since I can no longer find it on the shelf I assume it's no longer available. The Mega T is supposed to stimulate your metabolism and help you burn fat faster when used in conjunction with exercise. One of the reasons I decided to try it is because it specifically mentions "burn fat" and I wanted something to aid in my quest to slim down quicker in my stomach, hips, and thigh areas. The other reason I purchased it was that it got good reviews on Amazon. I always read the reviews. I take one caplet twice a day just like it says on the box, with a full glass of water. Now the directions say to take it with a meal, but I take it about 15-30 minutes before my meal. I don't notice anything weird like bloating, or sudden urge to go to the bathroom, but I do notice that I go about an hour or so after my meal when I take it. So can I say for sure that it works? Not really. I mean, I'm slimming in my hips and thighs, but I can't soley attribute that to the Mega Tablets. In conjunction with my workout routines , yes. The box says "Lose up to 20 lbs". I haven't lost nearly that but like I said the fact that I have a regular BM after the meal makes me feel like something is happening. So I'm going to stick with this one.
Workout Supplements-Organic Wheat GrassI was reading up on organic foods and products when I came across an article about wheat grass and how beneficial it is for your health, like cancer prevention, detoxification, blood flow, digestion, increase energy, balancing PH levels, etc and helpful for several health conditions. So naturally, I went to amazon did a little searching and after reading a few reviews, decided on "Amazing Grass" brand. Amazing Grass Organic Wheat Grass Powder, to be exact. I tried it for a couple of weeks, but I couldn't keep up with it because I couldn't find a liquid that I liked mixing it with. I tried water, and that did not work because the powder doesn't really dissolve. Residue sort of floats to the top of whatever liquid workout supplements you use. And then there is the taste, not very pleasing. I have to admit though that apple juice was the best for me. So that's what I used while I was taking it. All i had to do was mix one table spoon into 8-16 oz of water and you'd think that would be easy. But, I just couldn't get past the floating stuff and the weird taste. Maybe if I find another way to mix it. I would say this is a good investment, but if you're like me and your liquid mixture has to have a smooth consistency in order for you to drink it, you may run into some problems. There's no denying that Organic Wheat Grass has several health benefits though. Maybe for you those benefits will outweigh the taste and inconsistency of the mixture.
Workout Supplements-P90X Recovery FormulaThere are a load of recovery drinks out there. I've tried Muscle Milk, Jillian Michaels Whey Protein, some other guy's protein and so on. I knew enough from my research to understand that protein was important and whey protein was one of the best. But, I digress. I tried all of those guys as post workout drinks, powders, but P90X was my favorite. Plus it tastes better than all of those other ones. You're probably starting to see a theme here. If it doesn't taste good, I really don't want to spend my time with it or my money on it. I know the name says P90X, but tons of people use this workout supplements as a post workout drink especially after their extreme workout sessions. I use the orange and it reminds me of Orange Sherbert a little bit. It comes in a 52.9 oz container, but this stuff goes pretty fast. Probably because you use two scoops in a 12 oz glass of water. Your supposed to drink it within one hour of your workout in order to rebuild, repair, and refuel. Like I said, I've used the other workout supplements and as far as I'm concerned their icky and none of them mix as well as this recovery drink. So for my post workout drinks its either this, Shakeology, or Fat free chocolate milk. That's right, chocolate milk can also be used as a recovery drink. I do like chocolate milk, and I will use it if for some reason I am out of Recovery drink, or if I'm rationing my Shakeology, but I'm not fond enough of chocolate milk to drink it eacg after workout routines.

Workout Supplements-Shakeology (Chocolate)If there is one supplement I don't plan to be without, it's this one. I've fast fallen in love with Shakeology because it is a multipurpose product. I get daily fruit and vegetable servings (hate veggies); and appetite suppresssant, meal replacement, it regulates my digestive system , helps my blood pressure, gives me energy and a lot of the same stuff that turned me on about the Organic Wheat Grass, plus it has 70 other healthy ingredients in it. It's a no brainer for me. Each day I replace a meal with a chocolate shakeology mixed with just water sometimes but other days I add strawberries and bananas. It just depends on how much time I have or how much I want to eat. I've been using this workout supplement since Day 60 of my first P90X Round. The first 60 days I didn't feel like I was seeing enough results so I decided to try shakeology to see what all the rave was about. I started with the 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse and lost 7 pounds in 3 days. I was and continue to be impressed by this product still replace one meal a day with it. I've been doing it ever since. Some days replacing two meals a day or even as a late night snack. It comes in Greenberry, but I haven't tried that. I ordered Chocolate through automatic shipping so I get it every month. I started with the pouch 30 day servings but now I have the individual packets. They're just easier when I'm on the go. If you're going to invest in a multipurpose workout supplements that work, this would be the one. Plus if you have shakeology everyday for lunch you could save a ton of money if you were eating out everyday like I was. See More Shakeology
Workout Supplements-Slimming Formula NutritionalsOkay, I tried these guys but I'm going to tell you right off the bat that I didn't do very well with staying on schedule because I didn't enjoy taking so many tablets everyday. I know some of you will call me a baby (smile) but I just couldn't stomach it. The blue bottle (Sliming Formula) helps burn fat faster with exercise and stimulates metabolism like the Green Tea workout supplements claim to. But, I had to take a total of six of these pills (2 tablets 3 times daily immediately before meals) as opposed to only two of the Green T pills. The bottle with the gold wrapper "Activit" is probably most like the Green T pill in that it has green tea and L caritine in it to support metabolism and fat loss. So really, if I took the pills the way I'm supposed to they would probably work, but I couldn't stomach the six pills per day. On top of that my stomach seemed to be bloated after taking the Slimming Formula workout supplements so I didn't like that so I stopped taking them, and the bloating went away. Maybe they didn't mix well with something that I ate that week, I don't know.So I have practically two full bottles of this workout supplements in my cabinet. I'm going to start taking one pill instead of two to see how that works. See More Slimming Supplements
Concluding My Workout SupplementsRemember, do your research. Don't take my word for it. Well, If I say it tastes good I'm not making that up (smile). But, not all supplements work the same for everyone. So find the supplement or nutritional that works for you.
