Making my trainer crazy

Well, anyone who knows me knows I am stubborn. I am not easily lead. Acting on impulse may happen with my heart, but other matters get researched. In fact, my research skills are one of the things that keep me employed.

So yesterday when I sat down to talk food and supplements I wasn't the easiest sale she had ever had. I understand the importance of a good multi-vitamin, but get beyond putting an anti-oxident in a pill and I lose interest. I just don't believe there is such a thing as a 'fat-burner'. The only true fat burner I know of involves eating right and exercising.

All of that said, I will try their multi and anti. Anything reasonable gets one try. Beyond that, it will take more research.

Yours in health, Kate

  1. I agree with you 100%. I'm a multivitamin/antioxidant girl myself. (Costco vitamins are cheap!) I really don't believe in all the L-this and L-that.

    I feel the same way about recovery food and drinks too. I prefer real food. Maybe I'm just being cheap, but I'd rather have a banana with some peanut butter than some chalky shake. And forget about all the goo crap for long workouts - give me gummy bears.

    But if you find any real research to prove me wrong, like from the AMA or Mayo or someplace like that, please share.
