Supplementation - Important for Figure, Bikini?

So many women (and many men) fail to realize that supplementation is not only associated with bodybuilding. What I mean is, supplementation should be a part of every [healthy] person's diet, especially competitive athletes and gymrats of all levels. A basic diet that includes adequate levels of healthy fats, complex carbs, and quality proteins would be more than sufficient for an average human being; however, if that average human being is spending upwards of forty-five minutes doing cardio, lifting weights, stretching, and undergoing fasting periods, low carb diets, and manipulating macronutrients for physiological responses - THEN - supplementation is key!

As many of you know, I'm a huge proponent of marketing and publicity, but in addition to that, I'm also one to consistenly point out, that all of the champions featured on are role models to countless women throughout the world! It would serve two key purposes - marketing and awareness - for these champions to speak to key issues, such as what supplements to take and/or which products to avoid. I just found a great video, featuring Abby Clark. It's short and to the point; I highly encourage you to take a look.

Supplements are not exclusively in the realm of bodybuilders, and people need more guidance than that found in glossy magazine ads. You don't have to lie or even exagerate, many of the readers would be eternally grateful to you for just sharing what you already do. There's so much crap in the magazines that even the articles contain footnotes to the ads! Few articles cite juried articles or [reputable] clinical studies. Do you ladies know how many men waste their money on Tribulus-based supplements to "jack their testosterone?" Guess what -- there ARE NO STUDIES that indicate these results. It's not that there's few - THERE ARE NONE! The fans need you, they need your honesty! It's you they want to look like - why not offer a hand (and help your own career while you're at it)?
