Years of experimenting with every supplement on the market has led me to the conclusion that there are a few things you need and the rest is a bunch of marketing crap. So how do you know what you need and what’s just slick marketing? Well luckily TD Nation coaches have spent tons of money trying and researching nearly all of them so you don't have to.
Before I reveal my list of must haves remember that supplements are meant to supplement your diet. They are not magic. Taking supplements will not overcome a bad diet. If you’re not going to eat properly you might as well save your money. If you are going to eat right supplements can be an amazing tool at filling in the missing gaps and getting your body to new places.
Here are the TD Nation approved supplements. They are listed in order of importance for those of you on a tight budget.
Use the TABS below to explore our most recommended supplements.
If I could only afford one supplement this would be it. I truly believe in this stuff and it’s the only supplement I used during my entire transformation and still use every single day. It's the supplement that every one of our coaches have used during their transformations. It's the supplement that all of our Beachbody Challengers have used. See why I believe in it? We have proven it works over and over again.
Shakeology is NOT a protein shake. Let me say that again…..Shakeology is NOT a protein shake. It's a proprietary blend of 70+ super foods from all over the world with adaptogens, phytonutrients, digestive enzymes, probiotics, and prebiotics that help your body progressively eliminate the toxins that build up over time from eating today’s highly processed foods. At the same time, whole-food ingredients deliver the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to curb cravings, allowing it to shed stored fat while the more than 20 different antioxidants and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke. Basically if I miss something in my regular diet I can be sure Shakeology has filled in the gap. I never have to worry that I’m not getting everything my body needs to run at maximum efficiency. Plus it really helps curb sugar cravings. See why you can't compare this to a protein shake?
Shakeology can be used as a meal replacement to help you lose weight or a nutritious snack to ensure you're getting the nutrients your body needs to run at optimal levels.
If you are interested in Shakeology contact your coach for more information and for a link to order for the cheapest price. If you do order make sure to order using the “home direct” shipping to save $12 on shipping. You can still cancel anytime. Also remember there is nothing to lose. If you don’t like it and it doesn’t do what Beachbody claims you can return it for a full refund….even if you have eaten the entire bag!
+ Whey Protein
Most people have a hard time getting .6 - 1 g of protein per lb of body weight into their diet by eating whole foods. Luckily we have whey protein to help us get to our goals. There are many benefits to a higher protein diet including:
Whey protein isolate also contains the lowest level of lactose, so anyone who is currently lactose intolerant will definitely benefit from this factor. It tends to be lowest in fat as well, so really one of the best well rounded proteins available. A TD Nation favorite is Dymatize IS0-100 Whey Isolate.
+ P90X Results & Recovery Formula (R&R)
A TD Nation favorite and probably the best thing we eat or drink all day. We call it orange crack LOL. If you want to help curb muscle soreness this is the supplement for you! P90X Results and Recovery formula combines the proper nutrients that's guaranteed to take your results to the next level.
+ Creatine Monohydrate
When it comes to creatine pass on all the fancy marketing and “new advanced creatines”. Use the one that’s been tested over and over and proven to work….creatine monohydrate.
Explosive muscle power lasts for only a few seconds at the beginning of each set or sprint. With the completion of each set, your ability to recover and move on to another grueling exercise is greatly diminished.
Creatine helps give your muscles the ability to go just a little further. Creatine is a naturally occurring compound in the body that plays a powerful role in driving and supporting short-burst, explosive contractions. The only problem; your muscles contain a very limited supply of this substance naturally. Supplementing with Creatine Monohydrate helps “saturate” muscles with greater stores of available creatine. This helps support the increased duration of your muscle-power output, speed recovery time between sets and generate more explosive strength.
