I've been toying with the idea of writing a post about supplementation for a little while. I've touched on the 1g/lb protein myth, but haven't really went any further with talking about other supplements. Well, now I don't have to because to good folks over at nerdfitness just posted a great article about it. Frankly, I couldn't have written it better myself. It would be remiss of me not to share a great read like this with you guys.
Just a note, you will notice in the article that they recommend 1g per pound of lean body weight. This is different that the 1g per pound of total body weight myth that I've written about, and roughly equates to 0.8g/lb. Thats right at the upper limit as to what the research shows is effective. So I'm down with that.
I really encourage any of you out there who are interested in taking supplements or the like to read the article. They take the same views on it that I do, which is basically that it's a bunch of hokum, for most people.
