Supplements and Athletic Performance

I think we've all been duped into believing that athletes need special supplements to enhance
their athletic performance, recovery time, personal records, etc. I used to spend upwards
in of 300 dollars a month on just protein powder and vitamins. Forget all the other stuff
I used to shove down my gullet. I think I had the most expensive urine in North America!

Vitamins are man-made, artifical food derivatives that are made in some laboratroy. How can
we possibly replicate the exact nutrient count of an apple or carrot? It's impossible. There are
so many compounds in that apple besides vitamins. Things that haven't even begun to be
researched. So stop spending money on artificial chemicals that eventually throw the body out of whack.
If the body gets too much of one nutrient, it goes searching through the body to balance out the assault.
You can save your body and pocketbook a lot of wear and tear.

I've actually been getting bigger and stronger since I've been on the O diet. I get plently of vitamins from
the HUGE quantities of vegetables and fruit (all raw) I eat every day. Also, I stretch, get sunshine on my nude body
for 20-30 minutes a day. Drink about 4 litres of water and get 8 hours of sleep at night. Yes I'm sore after some workouts,
but I don't work a body part again until it completely recovers: If I'm pushing 720lbs. on the leg press, I sometimes can't even
walk the next day. My legs need time to rest and grow. So why would I want to work my legs out more than once a week?

I reserve my legal O grains and starchy vegetables (mostly Ezekial bread, yams, etc.) for my post work-out meals. That's when I consume
a VERY large quantity of food. The rest of the time it's protein, non-starchy vegetables, fruit and some vegetable oils. My recovery seems
to have improved with this system and I've lost almost 6% bodyfat while putting on 12 lbs. of muscle.

In summary, I'd say stick to your diet and do the other basics and you can use the extra money you save for an athletic
vacation to a destination of your choosing!
