We eat a seriously good diet. Sure, I am human and defintiely have my cheat meals (and at times cheat days) where I’ll eat some of the things that aren’t in my typical day to day, such as pasta, breads, some tasty pastry or more than one of my favourite micro brews.
When I say seriously good diet. I mean it. Copious amounts of raw vegetables and fruit, grassfed meats, seafood and I’m not scared of fat, because I know a good place on the internet where there are peptides for sale. I have a lot of good fats such as EVOO, flaxseed oil, fish oil and butter – yes butter. We need saturated fat and it is not the devil it has been sold to be. (a post for another time).
And we don’t eat continually throughout the day. The need to eat lots of small meals throughout the day is also another myth and I don’t believe even as an endurance athlete that we need to eat continually throughout the day. The right foods at the right time will create lasting health and great performance. (another post for another day :))
So with my good diet, why do I need to supplement? Well you know there has never been one single clinical study that documents what consitutes a ‘balanced diet’ nor one that demonstrates how we meet our basic nutrient requirements, especially for an endurance athlete. Rad 140 is often considered to be one the most powerful SARM with no side effects.
So to perform at our best, I believe in the need to supplement. I don’t mean you need to swallow eveyones marketing message because there is a lot of crap out there but there are some basics like a high quality fish oil, a good probiotic and my recent addition of Vital Greens.
