8/18/12 - Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 19. August 2012 08:00

Good morning!  Today we are going to broach the subject of vitamins.  I say 'broach', because it is such a dauntingly large subject, it would be hard to feel that our discussion's ever complete.  The other issue is that any recommendation of adequate supplements depends on 1) who's recommending, 2) whether you're talking about everyday vitamins, hard core weight trainer supplements, 3) holistic supplements, or 4) vitamins for someone with a particular illness...  Where does it end?  (Get the picture?)  

Start with a quality multivitamin.  It's always best to eat a wide variety of foods (clean eating), but even people who eat well may find it hard to completely cover all the essential vitamins and nutrients that a body needs.  Make sure to buy vitamins from a reputable source, and check the side information panel to make sure the brand you choose isn't stuffed with fillers.  It should NOT provide more than 100% of the daily value or each vitamin and minerals.  Otherwise it can cause you health issues.  Also, check the expiration date.  Don't buy if you can't finish the bottle before they expire.  Don't fall for marketing schemes.  The vitamins don't have to be 'brand named', if they have the same amount of vitamins and minerals and they are government approved.
