londonboy91 saidhey all, I just had a hypothetical question.
say you were to go on a crash diet to lose weight but took supplements to make sure my body stayed "healthy". what would this do? help someone lose weight? make them sick?
Your diet is what is the foundation. Make sure it is sensible and balanced. With so much controversy over what and how to eat, it may be overwhelming, so take it slowly. Make it simple. Eat good foods, eat a good breakfast, lunch and dinner. A snack in between meals is OK if moderate, good food and not candy. Drink water. Read and listen to what sounds reasonable.
Supplements are just that. They are not meal replacements but supplement your diet with added nutrition that would be hard if not impossible to get from eating regular meals. Get good quality supplements and ask.
Eating right something you do by trial and error, reading, asking and finding what works for you.
