A word on supplements: There’s a lot of hype about supplements. Heck, there are whole stores that sell nothing but. But do they work?
And no.
Some supplements have sound science to back them up. And some are merely snake oil. Here’s an article from the Consumerist that links to this handy guide to figuring out which supplements are helpful and which to save your money on. If the interactive version is too much for your computer to handle you can check out this simple, static graphic instead. You may have noticed I dropped a supplement from my morning routine {Vit C}. I had already had my doubts about it, and checking out the guide confirmed my suspicions that it was probably not evidence-based medicine. Live and learn.


  1. My breakfast is... one cup of coffee and/or a cereal bar ;) I think yours is better. LOL

  2. I've been wanting to try Benefiber. How does it taste?? I just can't stand anything that tastes chalky and I was always scared that's how it would taste.

  3. It honestly, truly disappears. I don't taste it at all. I don't notice a texture {except the one time I used too much}. You don't even really see it once you stir it in. It's like drinking plain water. You can use it in coffee, tea, oatmeal, etc. too.

  4. I did 2 minutes free weights/crunches for your comments.


I exercise for comments! So leave your {related} comment below. I'll exercise for one minute per "real" comment. Support is always appreciated.
