Neil Wins NABBA Championship as Best Newcomer 2011- Fuelled by Herbalife
"As a personal trainer for over 15 years I have used many supplements in my years. I have always tried to rely mainly on a healthy diet and was finding I had protein supplements that I would simply not finish. The reason being I was reluctant to substitute good nutrition with empty calories. ‘Empty’ calories in-so-far as lacking micro nutrient support for the macro nutrient content.
I have been perfecting my craft as much as I can in recent times to get into competitive condition and maintain that year around. Herbalife has dramatically helped me in my quest as I initially under went a digestive cleanse in order to optimise nutrient absorption, taking Fibre Bond and Herbs and Fibre over the course of the first three weeks. I then took just the Herbs and Fibre in order to maintain non water soluble fibre levels in the diet that are particularly difficult to get into the diet and have continued this since and take Fibre Bond if eating out.
Between meals and after training I take Formula 1 shakes, the carb rich protein mix is perfect for my needs as a post training meal to hike carbohydrate sensitivity in the muscles for a couple of hours, importantly replacing lost glycogen allow muscle developments. I take a smaller amount of Formula 1 prior to training with a good scoop of whey and soy Protein mix, in order to maintain muscle mass as muscles deplete during my subsequent training session. The mix of soy and whey raises the biological values of proteins. Between meals I mix the Formula 1 similarly.
I take the Cell Activator Vitamin B supplement at the minute which has dramatically improved my mood and, seemingly, my protein synthesis as I gained considerable lean muscle mass having started my own training again two weeks ago.
I have always enjoyed healthy eating as my mother is a food scientist and I have been researching the subject for the last 5 years. The supplements in the Herbalife range are ones that I put my trust in and know with the micro nutrient content support my own healthy diet allowing me to train intensely and achieve sustained results.
Feeling healthier in and out is my quest and I can achieve this a whole lot easier now than I have ever in my career."
