Body Makeover Supplement Guide

03 May 17




As you know from the MEAL PLAN provided most of your protein sources should come from food, however if you are on a high protein diet generally people will struggle to get all of their protein from food. Also while training pretty hard you are really going to need your protein intake to be pretty consistent to help with your recovery regardless of what kind of physical activities you are doing.

Particularly for WEIGHT LOSS USN have a variety of protein shakes to help assist you.

USN Recommends:

  1. DIET FUEL ULTRALEAN - this is a meal replacement shake providing 200 calories that can be used any time of day to help assist with reaching your protein goal and also reduce sugar cravings. If you are prone to not having a breakfast and struggle to eat real food you can use this as an alternative. This can also be used as a snack during the day between meals or if you are caught on the hop and have no food for lunch or dinner this shake will fill the gap.  

25.4g protein 17.3g carbs 200 calories

  1. DIET WHEY ISOLEAN- This is perfect for after your training session providing 25g or protein and only 137 calories.  With a high protein content and ULTRA LOW carbs this is perfect to supplement your weight loss plan and allows you to actually eat your carbs rather than drink them

PROTEIN POWDER IN ORDER TO GAIN WEIGHT / MUSCLE:

It’s hard to shovel in 2-3000 calories per day and mass gainers are definitely worth looking into if you’re desperately trying to gain muscle. Try to find one that is equal grams protein and carbs, with minimal fat.

USN Recommends:

MUSCLE FUEL ANABOLIC Our formulation provides you with an impressive 55g of protein to fuel your muscles and also offers you a great energy source by boasting a healthy 77g of carbohydrates. Our tasty shake is the ultimate all-in-one supplement from USN and along with the high protein and carb content to support muscle recovery, growth and performance.

PRE WORKOUTS:

It can be really hard getting to the gym on those days where you’re surprised you even had the energy to get out of your bed. This is when a pre workout comes in handy. Gives you that fire you need to get going and depending on the product you use it will also help you focus and power through what you may feel is the impossible.

The idea that you need supplements to be fit, healthy and in shape is totally wrong.

This is because there is little proof that most supplements even work, so spending boat loads of cash on

them is likely a waste of money.

While taking supplements ‘to get in shape’ is not the smartest idea, there are still good reasons to take some

of them, so here is what I suggest and why:

PROTEIN POWDER

IN ORDER TO GAIN WEIGHT / MUSCLE:

It’s hard to shovel in 2-3000 calories a day, and mass gainers are definitely worth looking into if you’re

Desperately trying to gain muscle.

Try to find one that is equal grams protein and carbs, with minimal fat.

IN ORDER TO LOSE WEIGHT / MUSCLE:

I don’t believe in meal replacement shakes and neither should you.

Your protein SHOULD be coming from your food, but if like me you are on a high protein diet and have a

Sweet tooth, whey protein can come in very handy.

I sell a chocolate whey protein called ‘Recovery’ on my site, fitnessfondue.com, because it is very high

Protein and very low carb and fat.

However there are plenty out there to choose from, so have a look around. 

PRE WORKOUTS

It can be really hard getting to the gym on those days where you’re

Surprised you even had the energy to brush your teeth.

I could not survive without my pre workout ‘Fire’, that also

I sell on fitnessfondue.com, and highly recommend.

You have to be careful with pre workouts; I searched for 3 years to find one that didn’t

make me sick or shakey, and I found ‘Fire’.

You may have to go through trial and error to find the right product for you.

STEP 7 - SUPPLEMENTS (Cont.)

FAT BURNERS

I don’t believe in CLA, L-Carnitine or any of the other supposed fat burners on the market.

I do believe in thermogenesis.

Thermogenics are essentially pre workouts that increase your energy levels and heart rate during

Exercise, meaning you burn more calories than you otherwise would, and the more your body is

Digging for energy, the more fat it’s going to find.

Again, my fitnessfondue.com pre workout ‘Fire’ is the best thermogenic I’ve come across, which is

why I sell it, but again, have a look around.

BCAAS

BCAAs are branch chain amino acids, aka proteins, and are helpful for both those looking to GAIN

muscle AND those looking to LOSE fat.

BCAAs can be taken before, during and after training in pill form or powder form.

I sell the pill form on fitnessfondue.com but if you struggle to drink water, I recommend the powder

forms as they are flavoured and can replace your favorite sugary drinks.

MULTIVITAMINS

Again, there is no proof that multivits work, but since I started taking them daily 4 years ago, I’ve had maybe

2 colds. I personally believe in them, and again I sell the on my website fitnessfondue.com , BUT I am open

to the idea that this is psychosomatic.

OMEGA OILS

Omega oils are fatty acids that your body genuinely needs in order to function healthily, and benefits greatly

from. Your skin, respiratory system, circulatory system, brain, organs, joints, immune system and blood

pressure will all be grateful for your intake of this supplement.

CREATINE MONOHYDRATE

Creatine is produced naturally in the body, is also found in meat, and is stored in muscle cells helping to

produce ATP - the primary energy source of the body.

It supplies energy for muscle cells during intense activity and can greatly increase their size and performace.

Creatine works in loading phases and can lead to water retention, so if your goal is to lose weight / fat, bare

this in mind when it comes to your aesthetic results and the scales

FAT BURNERS

Fat Burners also known as Thermogenesis are essentially pre workouts that increase your energy levels and heart rate during exercise, meaning you burn more calories than you otherwise would, and the more your body is digging for energy, the more fat it’s going to find.

USN Recommends:
