We get asked all the time our thoughts on supplementation. Our stance is this: if you are eating a well-balanced Paleo diet, then you are getting enough protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. The only vitamins we take are Vitamin D (because we don’t get enough from the sun and it has a variety of benefits) and fish oil (for recovery, cardiovascular health, etc.).
Unless are you are trying to gain or keep on a lot of weight, you don’t need protein shakes. Nutrition doesn’t come from a bag, box or can. REAL FOOD is always better.
Keep it simple. Eat whole foods: meat, vegetables, healthy fats and some fruit. Cut the grains and sugar. You will look, feel and perform your best ever!
