I get this a lot, and I feel it needs to be addressed:by Taylor Clouse
“I don’t do shakes/supplements, I prefer to eat real, whole foods”.
This is a great, but flawed because of 3 simple facts:
1. Foods today are nutritionally deprived (includes organic).
2 . While most supplements aren’t much better, some are.
3. Compliance trumps non compliance every time.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all about whole foods – after all I do love to eat! I don’t believe this is an either or situation, but incorporating a balance of whole foods along with the appropriate shakes/supplements is really key to better health and getting the results you want regardless if it’s losing weight or hitting your next PR.
First off, we must realize that foods today, even whole organic foods do not contain the same nutrition they did 100 years ago. Let alone the additional nutritional needs we place on our body because of increasing toxin load and physical / emotional stresses that didn’t exist in previous generations. Because of this we need more balanced nutrition and sadly the only way to get this is through high quality natural supplements. I would love to get all my nutrition from whole foods, but the simple truth is the days have passed when this was feasible.
Secondly, not all shakes/supplements are the same. Lumping them all into the same lot essentially is like calling a McDonalds Big Mac the same quality nutrition as a Grass Fed steak with organic veggies. While it is true that most of the shakes/supplements on the market are the equivalent of “McDonalds” nutrition, there are some very high quality shakes/supplements that trump even the best food in terms of nutrient density.
Lastly, when it comes to achieving your health and fitness goals even the best plan in the world won’t be effective if it’s not followed through on. Long term compliance is really the key. While meal prep and eating wonderful home made foods is ideal, the reality of life makes it difficult for most people to sustain this. Whether they are strapped for time and don’t have the energy to shop, cook, prep and clean up after all their meals eventually most people will resort to what’s convenient and simple. And the vast majority of the time its far from what they need to do to reach their goals. Instead having quick, easy to use shakes/supplements that are designed for higher compliance, trump even the best laid out plan if not followed.
