As always, in one form or another, at both the gym I work at and the CrossFit facility I workout in (CrossFit Green Bay), people are always asking me what I eat, what supplements I use, what's in my shakes, etc. Here's a snapshot of this week:
Some of my breakfasts, when I'm headed to the gym early, are Best Bars Ever. Yup, a protein bar. Oh, plus lots of good strong Peet's coffee! Read what i think about these bars if you have questions, or do some research. They are wonderful tasting, a treat to eat, and as healthy as a protein bar has ever been.
My meal shakes haven't changed appreciably. I continue to rely on these shakes inbetween "regular" meals, breakfasts and busy times at the gym.
I'm a died-in-the-wool Progenex consumer; have been for years. I use virtually every Progenex product. More Muscle is the backbone of my shakes. Recovery and Build (until Build, for years I used and loved Vitargo), constitute my immediate post-workout shakes. Their Omega+ is part of my day (as is other brand's fish oil). I wear and workout in their clothing (the Wisconsin winter finds me living in a Progenex hoodie). Cocoon is an important part of my night-time ritual.
But other companies have great products too. I'm a longtime Gaspari Nutrition customer (we'll see what happens to their line, if anything, since their recent bankruptcy and sale), NOW vitamins and minerals always have a place in my home, different companies produce BCAA powders I use, and the Species Nutrition line has been comfortable around here for years.
Find companies' products you trust and enjoy; don't be afraid to experiment. I'm always checking out new things. You should too!
