5 Supplements You SHOULD NEVER BUY
Look a little over 5 years ago I was the guy that had every possible supplement that you could possibly imagine spread out on my counter. I was taking protein creatine glucosamine prostate supports liver support milk thistle fish oils, c.l.a.s digestive enzymes, just a whole bunch of stuff most of which I did not need at all. Unfortunately, nobody was around to tell me that all the supplements that I bought were just leading to one thing and that was expensive pee. Seriously guys the supplement industry is huge. And there are a lot of products that you’re told will help you build muscle or help you burn fat 3 times as fast but the truth is that most of these supplements are just gonna burn a hole in your wallet and you going to wind up spending money that you could have spent on good food that would actually get you way more results.
Today I want to go over the top five BS supplements that you should stay away from. Let’s start with number one liquid ketones. the reason why I wanted to mention liquid ketones first is that they’re becoming more and more popular right now. The whole idea is that liquid ketones are supposed to help you enter ketosis faster so liquid ketones are really growing in popularity especially with the keto diet crowd. Unfortunately, somebody should tell them that this supplement’s claims are just straight up lies. In order for your body to go into ketosis, you have to restrict carb intake enough for your body to begin converting fat into ketones which will be used as energy. Simply put you’re using fat as your primary source of fuel when you don’t have any carbs. This process of using ketones for energy known as ketosis essentially allows people to Target their fat stores and burn more fat. Ketosis happens naturally when you take glycogen or carbs away from the body not when you add something in. Randomly adding in ketones into your body will not put you into a state of ketosis. Again ketosis leads to ketones, but ketones don’t lead to ketosis.
So when your body is in ketosis that leads to Natural Ketone production for fuel, not the other way around. Adding in extra ketones for no reason will just give you extra fuel to burn before you start burning your own fat stores. Which was the whole point of taking the liquid ketones, to begin with? It’s actually really really stupid when you think about it. Anyway…Next up are mass gainers That’s right Mass gainers are a complete waste of money and here’s why…. first of all, mass gainers are not healthy at all. It’s pretty much a little bit of protein powder filled with a ton of sugar. In fact, they have so much filler sugar that most Mass gainers fail lab tests for protein. Meaning that they have less protein than what’s written on the package. if you want the best bang for your buck then buy regular protein powder and use it to make your own mass gainer. you can create a way better Mass Gainer with ingredients that come from real food for your body to actually use. What you do is you take 2 scoops of protein, two tablespoons of peanut butter, two bananas, two servings of rolled oats and one to two tablespoons of coconut oil. Then you add either water or whole milk if you really want to add extra calories. Then blend it with some ice and walla you have yourself a killer mass gainer that’s cheaper and much more effective than what you would get out of a commercial mass gainer.
Next on the list are multivitamins and I know a lot of people are going to lose it when I explain this because some people really do think that taking a multivitamin every day Will magically keep them healthy. don’t worry about my diet…I got my multivitamins. Sorry to break it to you but your multivitamin is only doing two things… one overfilling the pockets of supplement companies and two giving you expensive piss……that’s pretty much it. 3 studies published in the journal….annals of internal medicine found that multivitamins and minerals didn’t perform any better than a placebo pill in regards to People’s Health. Meanwhile, supplements like multivitamins continue to lead a multi-billion-dollar industry. First of all, we don’t even understand the full spectrum of vitamins minerals and antioxidants present in real fruits and vegetables. Like what I mean is we might know about half of them or maybe 10 percent of them or maybe 1 percent of them…we don’t know. But even that aside when you take the vitamins that you think we need to stay healthy and you make a synthetic pill I don’t care if it’s in a veggie cap it’s foreign to your body…
