Can You Pass The Test?

Can You Pass The Test?

Before taking any supplement, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do you eat something for breakfast seven days a week?
  2. Do you eat at least three meals a day?
  3. Do you monitor the number of calories you consume?
  4. Do you restrict your intake of fat calories to 25% of your total diet?
  5. Do 60% of your calories come in the form of carbohydrates?
  6. Do you eat from all food groups?
  7. Do you eat three to five servings of fruit a day?
  8. Do you eat at least one vegetable a day?
  9. Do you consume a well-balanced pre-game and post-game meal?
  10. Do you drink 2 quarts of water a day, above and beyond what you perspire?

If you cannot answer yes to each of the questions, why take a supplement? Don't expect supplements to replace the needs for a daily balanced diet.
