Concerned about your health?

For those who are concerned about what you are putting into your body, stop consuming all that energy drinks like gatorade and bars like reduced sugar protein bars from powerbar!

These type of packaged foods cause damage to your body.

Apart from having aspartame, sucralose and all that kind of artificial sweeteners these also have artificial colourings. These type of foods can have an inflammatory effect in your body and eating them repeatedly can mean cancer (not now, but in 10,20 or 30 years).

You can find more things about your nutrition in Ben Greenfield's website. He is a triathlete and a personal trainer.
Because I'm concerned about what I'm eating when I train (and when I'm not too), I found Hammer Nutrition (I pay for their products). They have all kind of supplements that you need but these don't have simple sugars (they only use maltodextrin a complex carb) , artificial sweeteners or additives.
Another good sports bar brand is Clif Bar (I'm not sponsored by them). Their bars taste really good and all their bars are made of brown rice syrup, oats, nuts, seeds...
Feel free to ask me more about nutrition or about those brands (and where to find them).
