Please be wary of personal trainers that prescribe diets and vitamins. Very rarely does a personal trainer have more then a 2 day certification or at most 1 class from college in nutrition. Personal Trainers are experts at exercise, you should rely on Nutritionists or Registered Dietitians for advice about food. ABOVE ALL, DON'T BUY VITAMINS FROM A PERSONAL TRAINER. Dallas Vitamin companies don't think twice about asking personal trainers to sell vitamins and they're very convincing. They pay trainers well and teach them how to sell their vitamins. Once a personal trainer takes a vitamin order from you they get commissions of up to 80% of what you pay every time you order, even if you stop training with them. There are many examples of personal trainers recommending in excess of $250.00 in vitamins a month. Read what the government has to say about this unscrupulous practice in their Red Flag Report.
Our Nutritionists, on the other hand, will analyze the vitamins you get in your normal daily diet and if a supplement is required they will make a recommendation. Often this is no more then a daily multivitamin you can purchase inexpensively from your local grocery store. The USDA publishes a recommended daily allowance (RDA) for vitamins, most of which you can get through a proper diet. Supplementation may be necessary, but in the massive doses contained in some products it may be just as harmful. Imagine taking 3000% of the RDA of a vitamin. This is akin to taking 60 aspirins for a headache.
