5 Things You Must Do Before You Even Look At Supplements

This blog post is about supplements, but more accurately, what you need to have in place before you even buy any supplements.

In other words, there are 5 steps that you need to do first before you consider using supplements. If you ignore these steps, then you’re wasting money on supplements you don’t need.

Why?

Because if you want to lean up, then you need to ensure your real food intake is first and foremost, above all else.

In this post, you’ll learn the top 5 things you need to improve before supplementing:

  • Food quality
  • Hydration
  • Protein
  • Meal frequency
  • Awareness

Top 5 things to do before buying any supplements

1. Improve your food quality

This is all about eating the best quality foods (whole foods from as close to nature as possible). This means eating fish, lean meats, foul, nuts, seeds, vegetables, and fruits.

You need to remove the processed foods, the refined carbohydrates and the sugars from your diet.

Unless you are creating your diet from these food sources, you are simply wasting money on supplements. Supplements should be the icing on the cake only. Get the basic diet dialed in first.

2. Increase your hydration 

Are you drinking enough water per day?

As a general rule of thumb, you should be drinking half your body weight in water. Of course, this amount of water should be consumed throughout the day, in equal intervals.

Just use common sense (drink more when training).

3. Make sure you’re consuming enough protein

You need to be getting enough protein during the day – to see your abs.

A general rule is one gram of protein per pound of bodyweight.

However, this will be conditioned by the amount of body fat you’re holding. So, someone who is overweight should figure out their lean body mass, and then use that figure to find out their required daily protein intake.

4. Up you meal frequency

Your meal frequency is also very important.

You need to be getting 5 to 6 meals per day, spread out evenly across your waking hours. It is important that you don’t skip meals, as this will have a major impact on your ability to burn body fat and see your abs.

5. Be Aware

You should be aware of how you’re feeling, your mood swings and your body’s response to the food you are eating. Knowing what your body responds to is very important if you want to get lean and see your abs.

With regular changes to your diet (based on removing the foods that don’t help you reach your goals), you will make fast progress toward seeing your six-pack abs. Check out our Custom Meal Plans so we can help you make the necessary changes to your diet.
